Welcome Little One :: Waltzingmouse Blog Hop

  2. Trim brown strip and adhere to card front.
  3. Trim yellow cardstock, dry emboss polka dots, and corner round two corners.
  4. Add ribbon treatment.
  5. Die cut label and stamp label pattern.
  6. Stamp chickadee, color, and cut out.
  7. Adhere chickadee to label with foam adhesive.
  8. Adhere label to yellow cardstock, then adhere to card front.
  9. Add orange strips.
  10. Add buttons.
  11. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock strip and pop off top of yellow cardstock.

Happy Chinese New Year!

I know I am about a week late, but my friend had a party to celebrate this weekend. I made some paper fortune cookies to embellish her dinner table. They were a hit! Thanks to Hambly Screen Prints for sharing their cool tutorial. Here are a few pictures of mine. I used GCD Studio's Christmas Sleigh collection for the paper. Yes, that's Christmas paper, but works perfectly for CNY!



Just for Fun

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I'm going to give a few hints to reveal the vacation location. The hints will get more detailed as the days progress. The last hint will be revealed in a card and I will not state that it is the location, but you should just know! So, here is the first hint!

Vacation Hint 1: English is not the language of choice in this travel location...
