I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wishing everyone a Happy New Year. I made sure to create some memories with my family and we all had such a great time it was hard getting back into the swing of things.
Here's a card I created last week and meant to get it uploaded but just did not get to it, sorry. The first stamp I wanted to play with from the New Occasion Catalog was the hummingbird from the Perfect Picture stamp set. I just loved being able to stamp the color to the image. I had to practice on a scrap piece of paper to get the hang of it but I really love the way it turned out. I used Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay (stamped twice), and Jet Black. I wanted the hummingbird to hover around some flowers and so I pulled out the new Botanical Builders. I cut out some flowers, and leaves using Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Mossy Meadow scraps. I had fun assembling the flowers and arranging them on the card. I did highlight the flowers and bird with the Clear Wink of Stellar pen. At first I used the 1/8" Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon (smaller picture above) and after taking the picture, I decided to change the ribbon out with the 3/8" Pool Party Glitter Ribbon, I was not sure what to except with this ribbon but I like the feel of it. It is thinner than I excepted which makes it easy to tie and for the knot to stay in place but it adds the perfect amount of sparkle to a card.
Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
