Cloud9 September Blog Hop



Today is the Cloud9 September Blog Hop.  Cloud9 is a place where WPlus9 fans can get together and be inspired while sharing WPlus9 creations.  This month we were challenged to make a project inspired by this photo.


I knew immediately that I wanted to use the hanging birdhouses as the focus for my project, but kept thinking how I wished I had birdhouse stamps to hang from a branch.  After my project was FINISHED I remembered my Folk Art Floral dies, duh!  Oh well, here's what I did come up with...


I started my card by stamping the leafy branch from Love Birds in Old Olive Ink.  Next, I added some faux stitching and adhered a heart from Heartfelt Mix to the end of it.  I stamped some clouds from the same set to finish off my scene. 

I hope you are joining in the blog hop too.  I can't wait to see how other WPlus9 fans were inspired by this beautiful photo!!!

Stamps:  Love Birds, Heartfelt Mix, Pretty Patches Apple (WPlus9)

Beautiful, as always, Maureen! I am glad you forgot about the birdhouse die, because your hanging heart is perfect! The patterned paper and the twine help to balance this design beautifully! So glad to see you joining us again this month for the Cloud9 Blog Hop!

This is just beautiful Maureen! My card uses the clouds and the heart too! I love the bottom portion of your card with the sentiment and the twine to divide up your scene. Sweet indeed!

Beautiful card, Maureen! I love how you used the heart rather than a birdhouse. Your colors and details are wonderful! Love how you used the extended banner and twine!
