Cuckoo: Here for you anytime!

I’ve been eyeing this clock  from the new Hero Arts Cuckoo set for a while.  I really want a cuckoo clock in my next house.  REALLY.  Anyway, I think they’re very folksy and this quilty paper from Marrakech was the perfect pairing.  The blues and oranges…they screamed out to me to be used with this clock.  So, I couldn’t disappoint them!  The clock is stamped in Palette Burnt Umber and the greeting in Prussian Blue.  Then I colored it in and glazed it with some Crackle Accents to give it a weathered, aged look.  I didn’t have any coordinating brads so I punched out two elements from the designer paper, popped them up and covered them with Glossy Accents to make my own little “glazed brads.”  The scallops on the Oval Nesties are dotted with my Inkssentials White pen

I know it’s not very springy or pastelly (I totally made that word up) but do you like it? 

Just a quick store product update while you’re here.  The new Pink Paislee 365 Degrees 6x6 pads are now in stock as well as a restocking on the recent Queen Bee and Bayberry Cottage lines and Artisian Elements - Swirls.

aprilunitykits The new April Unity Stampin’ Store kits arrive tomorrow.  There’s been a slight change to them.  You can still get the whole kit, Super Sweet & Stuck on You) as you have (just NOT in the Scraponizer box) or you can now buy Half Kits.  Each month the whole kit will be divided into two HALF KITS – A (total cuteness) & B (sew cute).  You save a few bucks if you get the whole shebang but the half kits are a great option if you aren’t looking for the whole set.

The whole kit is shown here and you can see the division of the two half kits.  The full kit is $37 or each half kit is $20.

Thanks for stopping in today!  Have a good day!
