Stampin' Up! Spring Has Sprung!

Hey there stampers! Today is one of my favorite days of the month, Stampers Dozen Blog Hop day!

I combined two sets, Free As A Bird and Music From The Heart, with  Balmy Blue and Blushing Bride, and Bird Ballad Designer paper on both!


After stamping with Tuxedo Black Memento, I colored the birdies with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.


The January-June 2020 Mini Catalog set, Music From The Heart provided the musical images and sentiment.

After I made both a Blushing Bride and this Balmy Blue version I couldn't decide which one I liked best!


The Stitched Nested Labels dies are the best!




I stamped-off the birdies once on the envelope!

Thank you both for your kind words. I used Stampin' Blends, so the coloring was sooooo easy!
