Crank 'Em Out Unity Birds

I could hardly wait for cardmaking to turn to spring and summer themes, because I bought the cutest little Unity "Birds of a Feather" stamp set last winter. Finally I am cranking out flowery cards with these sweet little birdies!

This weekend I came up with this layout because I only had 1 sheet each of this Basic Grey "Bittersweet" Hand Dipped & "Praline" paper. I was on a mission to see how many cards I could get off of 2 sheets of patterned paper! I reversed my scallop circles on this one to give a different look for the focal point image. I sort of like the scallop on the white paper for a change, instead of always using it for the mat!

I pulled out my FAVORITE circle sentiment set from Papertrey/Pinefeather Press (Around & About Sentiments), and then used it to stamp thank you, happy birthday and get-well soon! So now I have all-occasion cards, from the same batch of bird cards! I also used Pine's "Beyond Basic Borders" to stamp a faint pink vine in the background going down the edge of the paper.

I cranked out close to 16 of these cards with 2 sheets of 12 x 12 patterned paper! Man, I'm a thrifty girl, eh?

Happy Sunday!

I love your blog header and love all your cards! The bird is perfect for spring. We are in a blizzard warning later today, so no spring weather here!

I also love the vintage frame holder you used to photo your cards with.
