This week our theme for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is "Inspired by Song". I am almost ashamed to admit this song has been stuck in my head. (Some one please help me get it out!) For those of us mature enough to remember, this was the theme song of the Partridge Family. Boy, wasn't David Cassidy dreamy??? Okay, enough of this dating myself and on to my project. (Update: I just got an email that this card will be featured on SNR Card Universe. Woohoo!)
I made this card both inspired by the song and a bit by the old TV show. These cute little birds are from the Love Grows Here digital stamp set. I printed the bird in 2 sizes, colored, and cut them out. I clipped the valentine from its beak since I didn't need it for this card. I love this set! Although you probably think of it as a "Valentine's Day" set, I will use it all year. (See my post from last week here for another project using it.) The cupcake can be used for birthdays, the cherries for summer, the love birds for weddings or anniversaries just to name a few. Here is a close up of the set.
When I was at my Jazzercise class on Wednesday, sweating through an abdominal (not abominable, though it seemed that way at the time) routine set to Rihanna's "Umbrella", I thought I could do a card with one of the new sets for this song! It also works for for Faith Hills' "Red Umbrella". Either way, here is my umbrella card using the new Puddle Fun digital stamp set.
And here is a look at the complete set.
I have to admit I am disappointed I ran out of time this week to make some of the other projects floating around in my head for this theme. How about "Black Coffee" (Billie Holiday) or "Coffee Girl" (Tragically Hip) using Coffee Talk, "Born in the USA" (Bruce Springsteen) using the Patriotic collection, anything by the Scissor Sisters using the scissors from Sew Pretty, "Birdhouse in your Soul" (They Might Be Giants) using Birds & Branches... The possibilities are endless... As a music junkie,I could go on and on. But, just for you, I won't.
I hope this inspires you to create a project using that song you have in your head. Check out what the rest of the DT created when they were inspired by song.
Thank you for looking!
