Too Cute Tuesday


Isn't this bird the cutest little stamp you have ever seen. It's another one of the fabulous images from Whipper Snapper. When I saw Anna Wight aka Sweetmissdaisy make a card with this stamp that she designed I just knew I had to get my hands on it. For this card I colored the birdie and flower in with Prisma colors and added crystal effects to add dimension. I did some paper piercing around the image and then filled the spaces in between with pink dots. The card stock used is SU Banana, Marigold, Rose, Olive, and WW. The DP is Basic Grey. Both ribbons are May Arts and the circle clip is from SU Hodgepodge Hardware. The flower stars on the borders are from Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Kisses and the sentiment is from Green Grass. The ribbon slider was made with my new Cuttlebug die cuts. BTW I am so glad I finally have a cuttlebug its worth every penny!! Also I had a question about where to find Jen del Muro's faux eyelet tutorial and actually I just saw her display a card with it and sort of made my own version. I believe that she pierced the holes with the paper piercer and then used a white/silver/gold gel pen around the holes to create that look. Jen if you are reading this and I am wrong I apologize and feel free to correct me. Its a genius idea that creates a great look. You rock Jen!!
