Morning all. It’s a rainy windy day here on Long Island. It was hard to get out of bed this morning! I hope the weather is nicer where you are. For today’s card I used the new host(ess) set from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Up in the Air. I really like the set with it’s three stamps, one is a birdhouse on a branch, one is some birds with a nest on a branch and the last one is some flowers and butterflies. All of the have a silhouette and some outlined images that are perfect for coloring in with your Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the image on Whisper White Card Stock with Chocolate Chip Ink. I the used some Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade to color in the flowers and leaves. I stamped the bird house again, cut it out and popped it up on a Stampin’ Dimensional. The scalloped edge across the top was cut with the new Adoring Accents Edgelits Die. The greeting, from Petite Pairs, was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Lucky Limeade and I used the 1 1/4″ Square Punch for the “flag” ends that were slightly off on purpose. Some glue dots and a little bend give it some nice dimension. For a finishing touch I used the Lucky Limeade ribbon from the Ribbon and Brad Pack in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog (available January 24, 2012). I love the color combination, It reminds me that spring is on the way! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
