Love bird

I'm having so much fun with this new set of Vintage Bird stamps from The Greeting Farm (formerly known as Pink Poison). There are three different birds in the set. Yesterday I posted one of the birds and this one is my favorite.

Our Creative Corner Challenge site provided this layout sketch to use this week and I liked it so much that I used it for both cards (yesterday's and today's).

The designer paper is from All Night Media (Anna Griffin) and just seemed perfect for the Victorian/vintage look I was going for with the "Love Bird". The LOVE sentiment is also one of the stamps included in this set.

For this bird I decided to use my Faber-Castell markers to color the bird. I still learning to blend with them but it is coming.

I have been wanting to finish my cards on the inside and plan to do it more often. I stamped the flowers in a mauve pigment ink and embossed in clear and added a drop of ivory liquid pearls in their centers. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set called "Sage Advice."

So here is card #2 using my new Vintage Birds set. Come on ladies....cave in and order this set. You know you've been itching to. Afterall, it was one of you "enablers" who showed me the set in the first place. You know who you are! Oh, and The Greeting Farm has super fast service. Even to me here in Canada.

Hope everyone has a delightful and creative day.



  1. Beautiful,thanks so much for playing.

  3. I think my socks are about to land on your back porch ~ WOW!! I've been away (thank you so much for the e-mails:) and just now catching up on what you've been doing. Your Mom's card is awesome! Your stuff is simply fabulous, as usual. I LOVE that Tilda image (reminds me of me and according to the boyfriend's 6 year old nephew, I only look old enough to date the boyfriend's SON!?!!). Love the hat and those birds are gorgeous. Looks like you and those new markers are going to have me drooling all over the keyboard in 2009. Happy New Year, Jennifer!
