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!
