SNSS – Blog Hop! Blog Candy Winner!


Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps is having a Blog Hop this week!  The theme is "Walk on the Wild Side".  For my contribution, I used a cute set, Doodle Birds!  I love this bird and the saying in it, "Strut Your Stuff"!  I thought that it was appropriate for the theme, too!  I can’t wait to send this off as a birthday card to someone!

I started by stamping the bird with Memories Tuxedo Black ink on Neehan Solar White paper and coloring it with my Copics Sketch markers in three different shades of yellow.  I also highlighted the word "stuff" with the Copic marker.  I added W-1 gray around the outside of the image and along the ground to make it pop.

I layered the White on Stampin’ Up!’s Regal Rose and then So Saffron cardstock.  I used two different patterns from Stampin’ Up!’s Georgia Peach Designer Paper series, and hid the seam with some 5/8 So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon.  All this was added to the base card of So Saffron cardstock.

Finally, I ran Regal Rose and So Saffron cardstock thru my Big Shot with the Daisies #2 die, and added a white Jumbo Eyelet in the center of the flower.  It is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals in the upper right corner.

Come join the fun and take a WALK ON THE WILD SIDE with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Design Team Blog Hop!
