New Stamps and Paper

BirdyI finally had a chance to work with the new stamps and paper that I pre-ordered from the Spring/Summer Stampin’ Up! Collection Catalog. I received the "A Little Birdie Told Me" stamp set and the Ginger Blossom paper. This stamp set caught my eye right away and I could not wait to work with it.

There is a layer of the Ginger Blossom paper on a River Rock background. The scallops are made with a corner rounder with the guard off. I stamped the bird in black on River Rock card stock and then stamped it again on some of the Ginger Blossom paper and cut it out. I layered the cut out bird over the complete bird on the River Rock card stock. I drew the stitching with a Rose Red marker around the sentiment and bird. The flowers from the Pretties kit were painted with Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate ink with an aquapainter. Then I stamped the French Flair in Guava ink on the Guava card stock. I finished up the card with a piece of hodgepodge hardware slipped on to the double stitched guava ribbon.

This card is a bit different then my usual style, but I had a lot of fun creating it.
