Spring Birds

Well the weather yesterday made me think of spring, as soon as that thermometer gets above freezing, I get that anticipation, longing for spring. 

Tonight I'll be swapping with my 10 for 10 friends so I put together some spring-like cards and colors for them. 

I pulled out some old In Colors for this set.  Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky.  This Spring Silhouette SU patterned paper was one of my favourites when it was in the catalogue, so elegant, with a real romantic feel.

Quite simple cards, I'm on a CAS kick I guess!  I stamped the damask from this set on the background of the card, stamped the bird twice and cut out and popped up the soft sky bird, and added simple accents with the Soft Sky Ribbon and these old Vintage brads. 



Back again tomorrow, one of my favourite times of the month!   Flourishes New Releases! 

Recipe:  Stamps:  SU Friends 24-7; Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky;  Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Spring Silhouettes DSP;  Accessories:  Scallop Punch, Circle Punch, Scalloped Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Soft Sky DS Ribbon, Vintage Brads.

So Pretty. I love this stamp set too. I just made a bunch of cards with it yesterday and today for my girlfriend. She is now hooked on sending handmade cards to her friends and family. So, I try to keep her supplied.
