Will You Be My Tweetheart?


Anyone that has visited my blog, knows that I am a totally sucker for sweet little birds- just silly for them, actually. That is why when I saw these cute little ones from the new release of C.C. Designs, Love Ya Much, I knew they had to be mine! I was short on time for stamping tonight so I wanted a simple card. The main image was so cute, I didn't want a bunch of elements distracting from it either. That brings me to an astounding announcement- I used NO patterned paper on this card- a rarity for me. The card base is Pretty in Pink. I stamped Pretty Patterns Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms in Regal Rose. Let me take a minute to tell you about a new found favorite of mine- Backgrounders from CHF. They are absolutely awesome. Like SU, they can nicely cover a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card, and there are so... many to choose from AND if you purchase them with EZ mount they are less than $10.00. CHF, also, gives FREE shipping for orders over 35.00! Gotta love that! Now back to the card, the main image is stamped in Adirondack Pitch Black ink on Whisper White CS, then colored with Copic markers via a blender pen for a soft look to these little "love birds." I punched the image with an oval punch then matted it on a vellum scalloped oval. The edges of the scallops were outlined with a Sakura Quickie Glue pen then dusted with Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkle. The little dots are Glitter Dots by Jessie James. That's pretty much it. A simple card to start my Valentine's Day card stash. It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
