Two Little Lovebirds

Hey everyone! I'm back with a sweet little card I made today. I wanted to show y'all a sneak peek from the Flirty Phrases set that will be releasing this month from Verve. I've always wanted a stamp that said "two little lovebirds", so I had to make one! LOL! I think this is one of my hubby's favorite stamps from the new releases, he grins each time he sees this sentiment.

The birds and tree branch are from a new set called Cheery Birds from the Clearly Archiver's Collection by Hero Arts. (ETA: This set is one of 30 sets Hero Arts made exclusively for Archiver's, so it can only be purchased at an Archiver's store.) I stamped the two birdies and the branch in Versafine Sepia Brown and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I then stamped the two little lovebirds stamp from Flirty Phrases right below the branch image, which was so EASY to do, because the new sets are clear. Yep, you heard me right, the Verve sets being released this month are all photopolymer clear sets! Next I embossed the rectangle around the birds and sentiment using my Nestabilities Rectangles and then matted on a Chocolate Chip scallop rectangle. The DP is Soft Sky Prints paper from SU! which Lisa so kindly sent me a few sheets of a while back and I've been hoarding (Hi Lisa!). I could kick myself that I was too busy moping around to remember to pull an order together to get a bunch of these Prints packs during the November SU! sale. And now it's December, can you believe it? Blink and it will be New Year's!

Anywho, I added some 5/8" grosgrain chocolate chip ribbon across the background paper and a chocolate chip mat and then glued some little homemade embellishments on with Diamond Glaze. They are simply some spacer beads from my jewelry making stash which I glued adhesive rhinestones to and added to the card. I really wanted some pearls, but couldn't find where I had stashed them. I like how this card turned out. Kind of simpler than my usual card, but its fun to try new styles every now and again. And those birdies are just so cute, that they needed to take center stage.
