Collage of Birds

This is the 6th card of a new challenge that was started in 2020 with the three collaborators you have seen many times in the past--Kelly, Jeanette and me!  This is our 6th challenge amongst us!  Jeanette came up with this new challenge called Mission Possible!  Jeanette sent us a mystery item three times in 2020 and asked if we would accept the challenge to make a project with the items even before opening the package!  Of course, Kelly and I said yes, so the challenge is on. So--for 2021, we are continuing and doing it quarterly.  And, yes, the item will change each round!  This Will be Mission Impossible Possible!

I am up for the 2nd round of 2021 and this is what I sent:   Good Day, Ms. Card-Maker. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves the use of an interesting stamp set that will be revealed to you upon opening this package. Two team members have been selected to work with you, I am one of them and I am sure you can guess who the 2nd is………...  You both will be given the opportunity to accept or decline this mission. Should you choose to accept the mission, you have some time to complete it, as we will decide on a date sometime between May and August.   You then will create a card using the enclosed stamp and post it somewhere in a public forum (blog, gallery, FB, Instagram, or such). The theme of the card can be any of your choosing; the only requirement is to use the stamp on your card!


This message will not self-destruct in five seconds, since I have no ability to do that and besides, you might need to refer to it again at some point.


Good day, Ms. Card-Maker… and Good Luck!

I sent both Kelly and Jeanette this fun Picket Fence Stamp called Collage of Birds.  It is a fun, square stamp. I thought it would be a fun stamp to ink blend and decided on rainbow colors.  I picked my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Cubes and used 6 of the 7 colors of the rainbow.  Then, I layered 2 dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz called Stitched Squares together and made a frame to go over the inked image. I cut three of the frames for some fun dimension on the card.   I used an Embossing Folder from Spellbinders called overlapping circles and just embossed the bottom section of the black card base.   I picked a fun Simon Says Stamp sentiment from their package of sentiment strips.  It is layered on a black strip, but is hard to see.  I think met the challenge--mission accomplished! And, I am excited to do this again! We are going to continue in the final quarter and Jeanette will be up. 

Here is the inside of my card, with a strip of the rainbow washi tape:

Please be sure to check out the other Mission Possible projects with this fun embossing folder.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card. Be sure to check back to see what else create this year. As I mentioned before, Jeanette is up next, so the Mission Impossible Possible Continues!

Love your birdy background Barb, and the rainbow does 'fit' it beautifully. A gorgeous card, and I love that sentiment
