For the Birds

Hello sweet friends!  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has many stamp sets with wonderful bird images.  The two cards I have to share today use two of these stamp sets.  The first card includes birds from the newly released Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands set.

To create the background for this card, distress inks were applied to a piece of acetate, spritzed with water, and the ink on the acetate used to "paint" the scene.  The trees from Landscape Silhouettes were stamped on the horizon, then stamped again on a piece of acetate, flipped ink side down under the trees and rubbed onto the card to make the reflection.  Silhouettes from Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass and Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands were added.  A sentiment from the Thoughtful Words set embossed on a pennant flag completes the card.

My second card was made just in time for Valentine's Day and features the cute birds from the Love Birds stamp set.

Clouds were sponged on the background.  All of the images were colored with Copic Markers and cut with coordinating dies that are no longer available.  The hearts were covered with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents and hung from the branches with metallic thread.  A sentiment from the Stand Tall stamp set was embossed to finish the card.

All of the stamp sets used to create the cards above are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!

There's still time to take advantage of the new February Release Bundle available for pre-order until February 9th!
