Why I love Free as a Bird- Part 1

savingPNG

With the Free as a Bird Stamp set being my give away this month you must see why I love it!

This card was not a “winner” in my last card challenge with Linda Bauwin but the simple image is tops in my book. There are a couple of things that in retrospect I wish would have been done differently but sometimes creativity doesn’t happen all at once (which would be why craft rooms no matter how well organized are messy-everything is a work in progress!)

Step 1: Fold a 1/2 sheet of Whisper White Thick and burnish with a bone folder.

Step 2: Stamp the bird/branch image towards the fold followed by the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink

Step 3: Using the Cloud Pattern Decorative Mask to block the card, fill in the desired clouds with Shimmery White Embossing Paste and a spatula. **Remember to clean the mask and spatula right away**. 

Step 4: Once the paste is dry color with Stampin Blends (read have coloring therapy time). Yes I did color the WHOLE background with Balmy Blue Stampin Blends.

Step 5: Give to someone great!

1 Card 2 Ways and Happiness Blooms

savingPNG 2.PNG

I saw this designer series paper sheet in the Happiness Blooms suite and I couldn’t decide if it looked more like fireworks or daisy’s. Since I have the Daisy Punch… you can guess the rest. But then I wasn’t sure which colors I wanted to use (not that I used the one I thought I would). Now I need YOUR opinion. Which color combo do you like the best? Pineapple Punch or Lovely Lipstick? Leave me a comment below.

Did you get a chance to check out the Happiness Blooms Product Share? Sometimes you have to see cards made with a set to really fall in love with it. Bold strong colors are featured in this suite but what makes it great is it coordinates with so many of our other stamps to create many different looks. For cards you can make in minutes pair the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card pack with the Memories and More Note Cards and Envelopes. If you love the cards above join the product share and receive a PDF outlining projects you can make with this suite.
