Last night, I created two "Make & Takes" for my team meeting. Here's one of them using the new Best Birds stamp set with coordinating Birds and Blooms Framelits.
I just loved this set when I saw it in the catalogue! Fun images with lots of sentiments (gotta love that!) and the coordinating Framelits come with dies to both cut out the images, and extra detailed ones too, like the bird on this card.
I used the linen/burlap image in the background and embossed in white on Whisper White. Then I sponged over it with Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum. After that, I tore the edges (love the crisp white edge!) and embossed the sentiment in gold.
I used the Framelits for the bird and branch. The bird I cut out in Sweet Sugarplum, glued on a piece of Flirty Flamingo (fussy cutting around the detailed bird) and then used Gold Wink of Stella over top. For the branch, I stamped in Crumb Cake and then sponged using Crumb Cake & Mint Macaron.
Hope you're inspired by today's card!
