Cheep Talk

I LOVE this set!  I think it makes the cutest cards!  So different from the flowers that I usually gravitate towards.  This card was a challenge card for one of my groups.  We were supposed to make a card to send with a bird on it!  I had a hard time chosing between this set and Good Friend…I LOVE them both!

I started with the Sale-A-Bration designer paper, Delicate Dots, to pick my colors.  (Get it FREE with a $50 order!)  I love the stripe in this paper!  I pulled out the So Saffron for the base of the card and layered Certainly Celery on top.  Then I used a piece of the stripe, matted with Bashful Blue.  I used the polka dot Bashful Blue and rounded the corners.  The focal point, I used my markers to ink up the stem and leaves with Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery.  The little bird is inked with Bashful Blue, then I added Summer Sun on his beak and Chocolate Chip for his legs….sitting him on the branch.

The Scallop Circle punch fits perfectly underneath the curve of the branch.  I stamped Hello There and punched it towards the top of the 1-1/4 circle.  Then layered it on the Certainly Celery 1 3/8 circle punch, and the So Saffron Scallop Circle punch, that I pierced in each scallop.  Finally I stamped the flower and cut it out, placing it under the words.  I added a 1/4 circle punch from glittery Iridescent Ice Certainly Celery cardstock.  I think this card turned out SO cute!  I was sad to give it away!

I leave tomorrow afternoon for a LONG weekend stamping retreat!  I can’t wait!  I’m mostly packed, just need to load it in the car.  I feel like I brought my whole studio…actually, I probably did!  lol!

I’m going to try and get several things scheduled to post while I’m gone.  I’m going to try to do my Blogger’s Challenge card for Friday, if I can find something to stamp that isn’t packed!  lol!
