Hey there! I do a lot of blog-hopping, Pinterest-searching, and Facebook-looking sometimes, which can be a time-sucker. But I often find great inspiration, like this idea to use Serene Scenery Designer Paper with the Wetlands birdies! Here's my version:
I used a Tip Top Taupe card base, adding Soft Sky with Serene Scenery on the left. I stamped sea grass and shore birds with Basic Gray ink BEFORE embossing with the Seaside Textured Impressions Folder. All stamping must be done BEFORE texture is added!
Wetlands is not new, but I use it when I need a calming card. Linen Thread blends with these soothing colors. I LOVE that the birdie stamp includes their reflections!
Suite Sayings inside:
After my bleach obsession ended, I've now become intrigued with color blocking!
Crumb Cake at the bottom, followed by strips of Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky, Pool Party, and Island Indigo, adhered to a 3 3/4" x 5" layer of Whisper White. After stamping the birds, embossing with the Seaside folder and lightly sponging with Tip Top Taupe, I adhered to Tip Top Taupe then to an Island Indigo card base.
I stamped the greeting on a 1" x 3 1/2" strip of Soft Sky, punched with the Banner Triple Punch, sponged with Tip Top Taupe, wrapping Linen Thread 6 times before tying in a knot.
A perfect sentiment from Suite Sayings!
