Enjoy the Season - Stampin' Up! Birds of A Feather Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute Holiday card using one of my favorite stamp sets, and the cutest chubby little bird you will ever see.  If you follow me at all you know that I am in love with the Birds of a Feather Stamp Set and it's one of my favorite sets from the Holiday Catalog so I couldn't help but use it on my card today.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card by using a half sheet of Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the stars from the set in matching Cherry Cobbler ink in a diagonal pattern on the card base.  Once I had the background stamped I moved onto the focal image.  To start I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the little cute chubby bird in the Santa hat in tuxedo black ink in the middle.  
I then stamped the stars across the top of the Whisper White cardstock also in tuxedo black ink.  I then colored the stars and my little bird in the following colors; Cherry Cobbler (Santa Hat), Pool Party light & dark (bird), and Daffodil Delight light & dark (for the stars and beak).  I then stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler ink.  
I added my colored image to a piece of Pool Party Cardstock and then to a piece of Gray Granite Cardstock.  I then attached some of the Cherry Cobbler diagonal striped ribbon and added a knot.  I popped up this piece on to the card base to finish off the card.  
Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you like my little card and you will give it a try for a quick little Christmas Card.  
Happy Stampin'

Ride with Me Happy Harvest Truck


Hello and welcome to my blot; today I am going to share with you a super cute little project using the Ride with Me Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The Ride with Me Bundle includes the Ride with Me Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Truck Ride Dies.  These two items are the perfect pairing to create this fun little harvest truck.  You can create cute projects with out having both the stamp set and the dies but it helps to have both for the truck.  You can get both in a cost saving bundle.
But when paired together you can create this cute little 3 Dimensional Truck that you can use for so many little projects.  You could use it as treat holders, place setting name cards, and so much more.  I created the truck for a fun little fall themed project today.  I cut out the truck using the truck die from a piece of  Real Red Cardstock.  Once I had the truck cut out I used my Stamparatus and stamped the images on the truck.  I then stamped the wheels and two of the pumpkins on a piece of whisper white cardstock.  I stamped the bumpers on a scrap of real red.  I used the matching dies and cut everything out.  I colored everything with my Stampin' Blends.  I used dark Smoky Slate and light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie (light & dark), Old Olive, and Real Red.
Once I had everything stamped and cut out I glued everything together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  You want to use a strong adhesive when putting this project together, but something that allows for a little movement as well.  I went with the Multipurpose Liquid glue because you have a little wiggle room when you use liquid glue.  I added the wheels with a combination of Stampin' Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue.  I took strips of Crushed Curry Cardstock and cut small strips in it and then rolled them up to from little haystacks.  Once I had the haystacks made I added them to the back of the truck with a little liquid glue.  
I added a little more colors to the truck with my Real Red Stampin' Blends.  I added shine to the truck's windows with a white gel pen.   And that finished off my little truck.  Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little post.  Here's a little video from Stampin' Up! about the Ride with Me Bundle.
