Free as a Bird, Good Morning Magnolia, Thinking of You Card

NEW STUFF!!!!  My new stuff arrived on Thursday afternoon.  Early afternoon. The UPS driver doesn't usually come until around three. SO I thought I would run up to Michael's because I actually needed something and I had a 50% off coupon.  As I was meandering around the store because I thought I should shop longer, my phone chimed which told me that there was someone at my front door. I looked and sure enough my stamping order had arrived.  So I headed to the register to pay so I could get home before someone sees the box on my porch and takes it.  I haven't had that happen yet but there's always a chance.  But they would be on camera, if they show their face.

SO, this is one of the sets I bought.  The birds are from the "Free as a Bird" set.  I thought it was such a fun looking set.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" pack.  I didn't buy the DSP that was designed to go with the bird set, I had to draw the line somewhere.  I taped the DSP to the card base. 

I cut a 2-1/2" x 4-3/8" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the birds on it and then colored them in using the Blends pens. I used the Daffodil Delight light and dark, Crumb Cake light and dark, Flirty Flamingo light and dark, Granny Apple Green light and dark and Balmy Blue light and dark.  After coloring, I cut a 2-5/8" x 4-3/4" piece of Basic Black for the layer. I taped the layers together and then I taped them to the DSP

The words are from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set.  I am in need of adding some "thinking of you" cards to my stash and I liked the font here.  I stamped the words using black Memento ink and I die cut them with the "Stitched" circle die.  I also die cut a Basic Black scalloped circle for the layer.  I set the circle in place using Dimensionals. 

I stamped a single flower and fussy cut it out. I colored it with the Flirty Flamingo light and dark Blends pens.  I set it on the circle with a small Dimensional.  I added some tiny pearls to the flowers with the birds and a little bit larger one on the fussy cut flower.  And that completed the card!

I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this set.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Pretty card. I really like the blue color wash around the images. It really adds dimension and it's something I should do more. Great job! Enjoy your day!
