Anniversary Birds

Hey everyone! How's your week going? I've been busy from sun up until sun down every day this week, but I'm happy to report I'm making some good progress on the projects I've been working on, so that's GOOD news. I love having a productive day where you get to cross a bunch of looming tasks off your list. That was yesterday for me - a fabulously productive day!

Today, I'm sharing a card made with another of the new Verve sets releasing this Saturday. This set is called Anniversary Birds and is a set of eight stamps. I wanted to try a different color combo for me, and since guava is not one of my fave colors, I thought I would try to match it up with my favorite color, Cool Caribbean, to see if I could make it work for me. It's a little different, but springy and is definitely growing on me.

I started by stamping the solid bird in cool caribbean. Isn't he a looker? LOL! I swear, hubby giggles every time he sees this set - he just LOVES this bird. Next I stamped the branch below Mr. Birday in Always Artichoke and then colored the leaves and the bird's wing with Copic markers and then highlighted with a clear Spica glitter pen for some added sparkle. I sponged Groovy Guava all around the edges and then sewed the image to a Groovy Guava mat and then matted with a Cool Caribbean Scallop Rectangle (Nestabilites). I pierced a hole in each scallop and outlined with a white gel pen for a faux micro eyelet look.

The card base is 4.25" square and is stamped with the Stampin' Up! Paisley background stamp in Groovy Guava. Next I stamped the Wishing you a fabulous Anniversary sentiment in Versafine Vintage Sepia, added three clear glass baubles and an Ivory satin knotted bow.

So what do you think? Wanna see more? Be sure to check ou the Verve Blog later today for more sneak peeks of this set by Amy, Jen and Lila. Oh, and Friday's the last day of the 15% off stamp sale at Verve, so if you've been procrastinating, now's the time to let your fingers do the clicking! ;)
