Stamping Handmade Hugs

When you can't hug in person, send a Handmade Hug you created, with Stamps, Paper & Ink!

Other than being a collector of all things stamping, I’m not really a collector. But, if I were a collector it would be of birds and birdhouses. I will just have to content myself with making bird cards, because I really don’t want to take care of a pet bird. I just like to look at them and their beautiful decorative wire homes.
This first card, I cased (case=copy and share everything), from my friend Kristine Compton. (And it’s a sneak peek of one of the cards at our next card buffet on June 20th) Her colors were different and I made a couple other small changes but this is pretty much the card she made. I loved it! The bird next to a brick wall on a branch, just so stinkin cute! 
I used the new In Color, Lemon Lime twist, Pool Party for the bird, Sahara Sand, (stamped three times to get the color darker) and Tangerine Tango. I did this card as a color combo challenge. At first I wasn’t too sure about the colors, but I really like the color combo now!
I had some birds that I had water colored, leftover from a previous Best Birds card design and decided to give one of them a different environment. Trees are the perfect environment for a bird, don’t you think? I made it a college graduation card for a friend of  my youngest daughter, Lindsay’s. In fact, her best friends, fiance, Billy.

  I used Soft Suede for the card base and Very Vanilla for the background. I sponged it with Basic Gray. The branch the bird is sitting on is from the new Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Copper foil is under the sentiment, that I used the Classic Label Punch to make.

This Best Birds set will no longer be at a bundle savings price of 10% starting June 1st. Be sure and use Hostess Code: FE6A9QKN if you order before May 25th.

Thank you for taking a peek at my cards. I’d love to answer any questions you may have or feel free to leave a comment below!

    Both cards are adorable, although I’m loving the one in the birch trees. I need to dig that embossing folder out……
