Best Birds - It's A Good Day

I am a nature lover and was immediately drawn to the Best Birds stamp set. This stamp set has several great sentiments, a few flowers, a branch with leaves and two great birds, ideal for coloring. The coordinating thinlits, Bird & Blooms, has even more options for those two birds, plus a small bird. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment.

Big On Birthdays - #GDP073

Today, I wanted to participate in the Global Design Project Color Challenge - #GDP073. For my card, I used the new Hexagon Dynamic TIEF. Love the depth of embossing you get with this embossing folder. This was the perfect background for my simply stamped birthday message. Making a two-tone colored sentiment, I stamped the Happy in Daffodil Delight. Then inked up the Birthday with Watermelon Wonder. Inked my finger with the Watermelon Wonder (yes, it is messy-but fun!) and dabbed it on the bottom part of the Happy, creating a beautiful two-tone color.
The swish of flowers was colored with a Blender Pen. This card should brighten someone's day with the beautiful, bold colors. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment!

Valentine - Sheltering Tree

Sheltering Tree stamp set is one of the prettiest trees I have seen since Branch Out stamp set (retired). You can achieve so many different looks by coloring the leaves different colors and over-stamping. For today's card, I made a sweet Valentine using the tree with subtle pink leaves and red hearts! The sentiment is from the Sealed With Love stamp set. That is a keeper of a stamp set, as well! I stamped a drop shadow for the sentiment, to really put the focus on the sentiment. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment!

Stamp Sets: Sealed With Love, Sheltering Tree
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
DSP: Sending Love DSP Stack (red with tiny white hearts)
Inks: Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Real Red
