...that the Birds & Branches stamp set is too stinking cute! I just love these little birds. Today I have sunset birds and mid-day birds. Two very different looks, but both are striking. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
For the card above, I created the sunset (or sunrise?) by coloring a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends. I went from lightest to darkest to give the feel of the setting (or rising) sun. I then cut this piece with a die from the Stitched Rectangle dies to give it a finished edge. I stamped the branch and birds with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The image is layered on Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black cardstock before being attached to a Petal Pink card base. The greeting is from the Forever Fern stamp set.
Petal Pink: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Basic Black: 4 3/4" x 3 7/8"
Crumb Cake: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Pear Pizzazz: 4" x 5 1/4" with the edge cut with the Birds & More dies
I am lovin' the June Paper Pumpkin! It is all about sharing sunshine to brighten someone's day. It's so bright and cheery and the stamps that are included with this month's kit are awesome!
If you're already familiar with Paper Pumpkin, be sure to check out more photos of the Paper Pumpkin alternatives at the end.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit offered by Stampin' Up! Each month, you receive a box in the mail that includes an exclusive stamp set, an ink spot, and all of the paper, adhesive, and accessories to make that month's projects.
If you like to imagine and create your own card designs, Paper Pumpkin is perfect for that too! Nobody says you have to use the supplies in the box to create the suggested projects. You can combine those supplies with items from your own stash to create even more amazing projects!
Here are the cards as they were designed to be put together:
And here are all the other cards (and scrapbook page) that I created:
And, there are still lots of pieces left in my Paper Pumpkin box!
My Mom joined me last night as a special guest host for Mystery Stamping. This is the awesome card design she came up with. You can combine different cardstocks and Designer Series Papers to create a unique layered look. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
