Grand Piano

Hello Stampers,
I was asked to make today's card by a Friend. I used some dies to get the shape of the Piano and the Word Window Punch for the keys.  I trimed the round ends of the White Piano Keys.  The Music is only two rows so I repeat stamped it for the background.  I coloured the flowers and leaves with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The "Happy Birthday" is from S/U's It's Your Birthday Stamp Set.  This is the first time I have made a Piano card and I am very happy with how it turned out.  Hope you like it too.

Stamps: Jemac - Music, S/U's It's Your Birthday
Card: Basic Black, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Ink: Stazon Black
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Pealed Paint
Cool Tools: Word Window Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Tweezers, Martha Stewart Rose Leaf Punch, Martha Stewart Frond Punch, Papertrey Ink Snowdrift Dies, Big Shot, Rolled Rose Dies, Sponges, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue

One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #4 - Christmas Bells

Hi Friends,
It's Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge at One Layer Christmas Cards.  For this challenge Anything Goes and the Twist is to Use Bells.  Remember if you use the Twist Option you could win a prize.  I had purchased the Bells and Boughs Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and loved this card by Maile Bells.  I wanted to try something a little different so I cased the idea to stamp the bells down one side from Maile with a few extra design elements added. I added the bow, crystals and a different sentiment, hope my card inspires you to join us for this challenge, and don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous cards.
