For the Birds

This little bird set is SO cute…I couldn't wait to add it to my list of stamp sets I HAD to have!  This stamp image, in particular, really caught my eye!



I started with a base of Gumball Green and layered on Very Vanilla that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Petals A Plenty folder.  I added a strip of Designer Paper from Be of Good Cheer and layered on Cherry Cobbler across the front.


I cut the Apothecary Accents decor piece from Crumb Cake and stamped the For the Birds Christmas image with Black Stazon.  I colored with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Makers.  I pierced around the edges with the new Piercing Templates.  Then I added two small stars…it's a SNEAK PEEK from the new Holiday Mini!  Yes, we have a mini star back in the lineup!  Hooray!


I thought it needed just a little something more, so I added a trio of flags underneath the top layer using scraps of the Be of Good Cheer Designer Paper!


Hope you like it!
