A Little Birdie

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another card using Unity Stamp products.

Today's card started with a misting of pink and purple glimmering mists (from Shimmerz). Once the paper dried I stamped the scalloped bird from the Wonderful {Itty Bitty} stamp set. This bird is to me elegant and whimsical at the same time - I love the scalloped border and the dotted background. To enhance the scallop border I cut out the design using my scalloped edge scissors.

The card front is Mellow from Crate Paper's Lillian collection (yes, I'm a Crate Paper product hoarder). Added a strip of purple with white swirl washi tape and a piece of ribbon from Crate Paper's Neighborhood trims. To make the scalloped stamped image stand out a bit, I rolled the edges of the scallops with my finger nail. The cluster is created with a stick-pin and rhinestone from Close To My Heart, two random buttons I had, and a scrap of grey and white ribbon. The purple button is on foam tape and I stuck the stick-in in the foam tape to protect the sharp point.

This card speaks to me in multiple ways - my favorite colors (purple and lime green), sparkly things, and ribbon. What have you created lately? Leave me a comment with a link to your project. Sharing is a great form of inspiration!

P.S. - At the end of the week, I get to give away Unity Stamps! How do you get these stamps? I'll be randomly drawing one name from those who leave a comment any time from now until Friday at midnight MT.

Great colors--my favorites, too!

Thanks!! I have a hard time doing clusters as well - I agonize over them and then finally just decide to let it be and then find that I like it later. And I pretty much love any color with purple :)

Love this unexpected color combo and that bird image! The crinkly ribbon adds so much texture!

Emily Keaton  – (June 6, 2012 at 9:33 PM)  

What's not to like about lime green and purple! I think that combo ROCKS, and so does your lovely creation!
