Birdie says... BLOG CANDY

So Birdie says... BLOG CANDY!

This stamp just cracks me up... I know I say that a lot and it's obvious that I do need to venture out from my stamp room a little more. So you want these stamps... they are up for grabs, generously provided by Wendy at Repeat Impressions. So just leave a comment below and they could be in your little stampin' hands! Want more than one chance at them... OK you can leave a second comment on another day's visit and increase your odds. Leave a comment by midnight Sunday, that's this Sunday, the 27th. I'll have the husband draw a name, while again trying to explain to him what blog candy is.... winner to be posted Monday.

On to the card details which I think I kept pretty simple... I colored birdie and the "inside the card kitty" and feathers with Copics, cut them out with Nesties, of course. I'm trying to be patient for the new Nesties... it's hard though. The DP is My Mind's Eye and I mirrored the design in the paper with the trimming on the bottom. I edged the DP with a cat's eye. I also thought the criss-cross on the ribbon tied in to the design. So with those few elements and then of course wanting the sentiment and image to be the focal point I could lay off my usual twenty extra details that tend to bog me down sometimes. So really it is simple, no dremel tools used, and the sentiment .... ahhhh... just so sweet! So leave a comment on any topic you choose and good luck.

  1. I love this set of stamps! Being a cat person, I totally appreciate it. This card is a purrfect blend of stamps, papers and colors. I like the bottom edge zig-zag. Even the ribbon mirrors the DP's pattern, how cool is that?

  2. Thanks for offering the blog candy. I can see why that set cracks you up--it cracks me up too.
