CropStop Blog - October Guest DT Spot

Hello my friends!

I'm so happy to be the October Guest Designer at

If you are not familiar with the CropStop Blog or Store, you owe it to yourself to pop over and check 'em out!

Today's creation was fun to make and I'm so happy with the end result!
Anxious to hear your thoughts!!!


For the focus of my card, I have used the beautiful Memory Box Airin Bird Background (die cut from red glitter paper) and Memory Box Airin Snowflake Bird (die cut from white card stock) as the focus.

The background for my bird was created using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks (Broken China & Faded Jeans).  On my craft sheet I stamped down both colors side by side, spritz with water using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and began dragging my watercolor paper through the ink ... this way & that.  Spraying with water again and drying with my heat gun.



The last step was to spritz again with water, but this time, dabbling dry with a dry paper towel to achieve the white spots.

Now I have the basis for my card.  I felt a framing of some sort was needed and this Memory Box 'Scattered Snowflake Frame' worked perfectly.

NOW I'm ready for assembly!


To make it all POP, I cut a mat from black card stock 1/16" smaller than my white base card.  The bird has been popped up using Scotch foam mounting tape and a die cut holiday sentiment was attached at the bottom.


Here's one more look at the finished card.


I'll be back next Friday with another creation to share as the CropStop Guest Designer!
