Everyone needs a tag set in their tool box of stamps and this set is such a sweet swirly set! I used one of the Tender Tags as a potted topiary tree on this card with the "Rock and Roll"technique. I started off with Sweet Leaf ink and inked up the entire stamp, then I "rocked and rolled" the edges of the stamp in Topiary ink and then stamped on White Daisy Cardstock. Tiny Cocoa CS pots finish off the look.
The little bird is from the April Word Puzzle stamp set. To get her pointed in the right direction, I stamped her and then cut her out, flipped her over and then decorated the "back side" with chalks (to get the blue body and yellow beak and feet). The back ground is also lightly chalked. Add some pop dots and all done! A simple and sweet card.
Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Cocoa Cardstock
Stamp Sets: Tender Tags, April Word Puzzle
Inks: Sweet Leaf, Topiary
Other: Soft Chalks, Round Sponge
Bonus card! This is one of the new patterns in our latest cardmaking book, Wishes! The outer part of the card is like an open envelope and the insert (with pink swirls on the sides) pulls in and out. I love how interactive this one is!
The greenish-blue color is Juniper (the patterned Juniper paper is from Perfect Day) and the blush pink is from That's Amore. The sweet little bird is from Bird Basics and is sitting on a blush Tender Tag highlighted with Cocoa edges. A couple of sparkles from a Connection Club Reward and we have one "tweet" little card! I guess I had a bird thing going this month - must be all that wonderful sunshine thats been coming my way!
