I whipped up this adorable little flying birdie card for the blog hop this month using the new Lucy papers. I made the birdies out of our amazing Bling Collection buttons (which aren't technically new), but using the NEW Paradise Paper Flowers. Can you see that darling polka dot printed on the flower - heaven! I trimmed individual petals off the flowers to use as the wings for my birds and attached them with Liquid Glass. A Bitty pearl opaque eye and some My Legacy Writer action finish off my little birdies. Tweet!
I used one of my favorite new stamp sets to make my card, a huge E sized alphabet called Keepsake Alphabet. It's got the entire alphabet in these huge, beautiful scripty letters, plus a plethora a alphabetized sayings to match! I used the Alpha letters for my FLY sentiment, which I fussy cut right down to the tiny space int he "Y" with my microtip scissors (inspired by the Moxie Fab Cool Tools Cutting and Trimming Challenge). Then I popped them up with 3-D foam tape. Since ours comes on a roll it's easy to trim the tiny strips needed to pop up finer work like this. I used Teflon coated kid scissors to trim it so I don't mess up my good scissors.!
I stamped my backgrounds for each little chick with an image I assembled out of the sayings from the Keepsake Alphabet set. It's one of the things I love most about acrylic stamping - you can customize the images you stamp by shaping and combining them on blocks. In this case as I stamped the three birdie backgrounds I moved the image I created around a bit so each one reads slightly differently. Finally, I wrapped my whole card with some of our NEW yummy Baker's Twine. I got all I wanted for Christmas and more in this new catalog!
