3 Birds on Parade -Day 2

Hi everyone!!

I am coming to you live from U of TN campus right now and I am not sure what is up with the photo below. If it is showing up all wonky, I will change it tonight when I get home. I had already uploaded the photo to blogger, and it is showing up kind of skewed for me, so we will see! (Edited to add: It looks good to me, is everyone seeing it OK?)

So today is Day 2 of the Cricut 3 Birds on Parade celebration. I really love this cartridge, and so I wanted to dedicate a few blog days to it. I have quite a few projects to share with you using this cartridge, and I plan to play with it again tonight.

The bird die cut I used on this cartridge is so darn cute! I was giggling the whole time I was putting it together. What is better than a bird dressed up as a ghost?! I tell ya, just about nothing! LOL Cracks me up!!

On the cartridge, the little word bubble is supposed to say BOO! but I didn’t feel like messing with the tiny little letters so I decided to stamp my sentiment instead. This sentiment is actually in the center of one of the stamps in the Stampin’ UP Sweet Centers stamp set. Do you recognize it? (I included a photo of the whole stamp set below).

And I have a disclaimer today! This is the first time I have used my Digital SLR camera in Manual Mode for a blog photo!! I say that because if the photo looks a little different than my normal photos, you know why! LOL  I think it turned out pretty good (definitely still need to work on it! LOL). I am taking a photography class and in the first two days I have already learned so much! I have been experimenting with different settings. My photos will only get even better from here!

The black polka dot cardstock is from the Stampin’ UP Neutrals Patterns paper pack. I like the black against the Tangerine Tango cardstock and the Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon. I think it makes the colors just pop off the card.

To make the ghost’s layers, I used Whisper White cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, The In Color Patterns paper pack (hostess level 1 item), and some retired patterned paper from the Good Neighbor stack and an old Patterns pack (also was a hostess pack).

To finish off the card, I rounded the bottom corners using the Stampin’ UP Corner Rounder Punch.
