Okay, this is a shameless plug for Crafty Secrets, but I honestly have to tell you how impressed I always am when Sandy and Cindy from Crafty Secrets show us the new stamp sets. Sandy has such an eye for cute, sweet vintage artwork! Amongst her many talents and generosity, she truly has an eye for heartwarming images! These birdies are no exception! I wish you could be there to hear the squeals when Sandy lets the design team preview the new sets! Many times she'll ask for our opinions and have us help tweak them ahead of time. What captured my heart with this set was not only the cool ornaments with all the accessories and swirls to fit inside, but the 2 sweet birdies that came with it.
I thought these birdies deserved the spotlight on their own, because they truly can stand alone and make a great card! Here I stamped off a row of them sitting on the holly leaves. This set also comes with some cool branches, so you could create a christmas tree scene or a row of branches for them to sit on! I went with the holly because I wanted the red berries to contrast against the burgundy patterned paper. The set also comes with that cool swirly star, so I cut out a couple of stars for accents. And I'm back on the chipboard swirl kick; this time I colored it yellow and glittered it up with Martha Stewart yellow gold glitter.
Copic colors: Buttercup yellow, light camel, mint blue, spring dim green, sanguine & abyss green.
