And how cute are they? I am loving both the new C.C.Designs new release sets. These little birdies are in the Love Ya' Much set. The thing I am loving about both of these sets is that they are so cute for Valentines, but also you can use them for anything. I started with a piece of brocade blue cs 8"x4" and folded it in half to make a 4" card. The designer paper is some that I got from Ellen Hutson's store. I can't remember what it is called. I thought the blue and yellow stripe was perfect for the lil birdies. At the bottom, I scalloped it with my create-a-cut. (gotta use that for everything!) I paper pierced a strip across the top of the scallops and then sponged creamy caramel around the whole piece to age it. The next layer is a piece of Stampin'Up!'s so saffron run through my cuttlebug and a rectangle scallop nestabilities die. I happened to ruin (oh the horror) a few fabriano note cards today, so I used the scraps to do the layer that the birds are stamped on. I stamped them in basic gray and water colored them with soft sky, buckaroo blue, pretty in pink, close to cocoa and so saffron ink. When they were dry, I added some crystal effects to their beaks to give them some shine! Too stinking cute! I had a tiny heart punch I found for a dollar at Michael's like forever ago and I punched a couple of pretty in pink (sponged with creamy caramel) cardstock hearts and glued them on. The ribbon is a caramel color I got from a ribbon share from Jody.
Happy New Year everyone! Don't drink and drive! Be safe!
