august release

Today is the final day of Sneak Peeks over at Craftin Desert Divas August Release Event.  Today I am showing the new Birds of a Feather stamp set.

This set is just too cute with all kinds of sweet bird friends!

EK Gorman CDD 8:9 InsideFor this card, I stamped out a couple of birds onto some card stock, along with some branches for the birds to sit on (using masking of course).  Then I colored up the birds with my colored pencils after googling jungle birds for color schemes.

I knew from the beginning, that I wanted to create some windows for the birds to peek through, so I pulled out some watercolor paper and cut it to 4.25×11 inches, and folded it in half.

I pulled out a bunch of distress inks and smooched different green inks onto the front of the watercolor paper.  I used cracked pistachio, mowed lawn, evergreen bough, lucky clover, pine needles, and forest moss.  Then using the smallest circle from CDD’s Stitched in Circles die and die cut holes for the birds to peek out of.

I added back on the die cut circles along with a sentiment from the new stamp set.  I added a die cut border from Crazy Stitched Frame Dies.

Inside the card, I die cut the birds with theCrazy Stitched Frame Dies and matted it with some textured green card stock.  I added a birthday sentiment from Say It Big sentiment stamp set.

Don’t forget all the new stamps and dies will be available today, August 9th at 12pm EST.
