Fussy Cutting at 3am!

I just couldnt sleep. Weird how I can hardly stay awake at 8pm then wake up at 3am and be unable to drop off again! So, rather than toss and turn I went to make a drink . 10 mins later I spied some images that had been kindly stamped by some fellow ILWS’s. We did an image swop recently as I couldn’t buy some of the new Stampin’Up! hostess sets. In return I stamped them some images of sets they hadn’t got.

This particular image has gorgeous filigree style bits. You’ve got to fussy cut haven’t you?! If it hadn’t been 3am, I suspect I might have said ‘life is too short to fussy cut minute sections of a bird’, but, since there was nothing else pressing, I got right on with it. So now, I love it! It’s ages since I got my craft knife out, and now I’m searching for things to slice into!! Back to the bird!

It’s a level 2 hostess set called ‘Whimsical Wings’ and now I wish I’d got hold of it! It contains 4 stamps- and I’ve used 2 in this card. There’s another swirl stamp and all you need to do is hold a party and you could earn a set.

Here’s the close up’s- the cutwork means you just get a hint of the colour underneath and I love the little flower cut out and secured with a rhinestone brad.

You have to love this bird and its swirlyness (oops another made up word). I’m off to design another couple of projects for a crafts magazine. I just love this job!!

Have a great weekend- and happy creating xx
