Digital Two for Tuesday 14

We have lots of exciting things going on this week at Two for Tuesday. Please read the message below to find out more details about our journals for cancer patients challenge " Journals of Love". You will get your journal posted here and a chance to win a free set of stamps from Clearly Vintage for participating.

This week we are lucky to have as our guest designer Sue. I have known Sue for several years from hanging out at the 2Peas stamping board. Her work is always so creative and her blog is an adventure to visit.

Here is her bio:

Sue McGettigan
I'm an Aussie living in California. I've been stamping for over 18 years and the joy hasn't worn off yet, now I'm into mixed media and collage too. I had fun taking digital images and using them in projects along with stamping. I thought these bird and nest images were really fun, thanks Cora!
I have two children, hence two eggs in the nest on my journal page. I love being a parent, it's amazing and rewarding to see my children learning to be independent, learning to fly. The nest image was perfect as a jump start to a journal page. I inked the background page and the nest, then stamped images in greens and browns. The bird and the text were stamped in black, and the eggs were printed and collaged onto the page.
Nest Image: Two for Tuesday, Cora Harkins
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Ranger; Ancient Page black
Stamps: Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous (bird, flourish); Stampin' Up and Purple Onion Designs (alphabets).

The image of the birds in the doorway was just so lovely in black and white I decided not to color it, so both projects are in black and white, and they are both quick and easy to make.

The thank you card is super simple - stamp the flourish in black around the edges of a white card, leaving room for the sentiment. Stamp 'Thanks'on the top of the card. Use die cuts to cut out the image and mount on black cardstock, adhere to the white card front.
For the tag, stamp the background in pale grey, stamp sentiment and flowers in black at the base, clip corners to cut into tag shape, punch and set the eyelet at the top of the tag. Use die cuts to cut out the image and mount on die cut black cardstock. Adhere mounted image to tag, loop ribbon through the eyelet.

Stamps: Stampin' Up!
Embellishments: Prima flower, Kaisercraft diamante, gingham ribbon, eyelet.
I'm looking forward to seeing your projects using these images!
