Love Birds

Hello Everyone!

Today I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog with this card.  If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE all things nature, so I was all over this brand new Sweet 'n Sassy stamps set, Love Birds.

You cannot go wrong with these great stamps and with the great cardstock from CutCardStock.
For the background, I stamped the tree background from Tender Thoughts in Baked Brown Sugar on some Savoy 100% Cotton Cardstock that has a great, subtle texture.  I used the matching Birch Tree Die to cut it out, and then backed it with a beautiful soft blue- Berrylicious-from the Pop Tones Pack at Cutcardstock.
Now for the really amazing part- I absolutely adore this textured white paper, Nature Gmund Savanna Cardstock.  It is just gorgeous, with a woodgrain texture.  I tried to get a close up picture for you~

Seriously, I just love this stuff!  I cannot decide whether to hoard it or to use it on every project I make!
  For this project, I used this amazing cardstock for both my background mat and the square window framing my scene.
The birds are stamped on Neenah Cryogen White Cardstock- it has a wonderful sparkle to it- and colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I used the matching Love Birds Die to cut them out. The Tree branches are stamped on Brown Bag Kraft cardstock and also colored with Prismacolor Pencils and cut out with the matching die.
All of the parts were assembled and then adhered to a gorgeous metallic base- Shadow- one of the colors in the Curious Metallic Sample Pack.
I finished off the card with my sentiment from the Love Birds set stamped on Vellum and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder.  What a gorgeous trend this is!
