A Best of Everything Birthday

Let's put a little color in our day today!  I love some of the papers in the "Summer Smooches" pack.  This  happens to be one of them!  I have been very conservative with that pack and I'm not sure why. In a few months it will retire and there I will be with a bunch of sheets laying around here.  So I am going to try to use them up before they retire!  Wish me luck on that adventure!

Today's card comes to you courtesy of the "Best of Everything" set.  This set has gotten some use but there are some images in it that I have not used.  I think I will play with them later in the week.  Some of them look like a lot of fun too!  I do feel like being creative so be sure to stop back and see what I did with the images!

Today I used the bird and the branch images.  First I colored in the branch.  I used markers on the leaves and then Chocolate Chip on the branches.  I huffed on it and then stamped the image on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Then I stamped the bird with Marina Mist ink and then I took my blender pen and got the ink off the beak. I colored the beak in with Daffodil Delight and I colored the feet in with Chocolate Chip.  To get the birds feet to touch the branch I figured out that I needed to have the bottom of the rubber stamp line up with the dotted lines on the branch.  This only works with the clear mount stamps.  

Then I got out my "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and stamped the words on.  I layered the image on a piece of Marina Mist and then I layered that on a piece of Gumball Green.  I thought I had Old Olive but it was Gumball Green but it worked anyway.  I layered the decorative paper the same way.  I set them in place on a piece of Island Indigo.  I textured it with the Lattice embossing folder first.  Then I taped that piece on a folded piece of Calypso Coral.  A couple of colors I have not played with much either.  


And here you have it.  No frills!  Nothing that will make you have to pay extra in postage to mail it either!  It's easy and quick to make too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
