Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird

Hi!  Happy FRIDAY!  Do you have wonderful weekend plans?  I hope so!  

This beautiful spring weather has me wanting to create with all the spring and summer themed stamped sets!  Isn't this Free as a Bird stamp set perfect for that!?  When I pulled it out to make a card, I just looked at it for a bit. I had no plan.  As I looked at it, I started thinking about how pretty just the birds on the branch are.  Then it hit me!  Why not just make a card with the birds and one of the perfect sentiments to go with it?  So, that's exactly what I did. 

I started by stamping the birds with their branch in (approximately) the middle of the Thick Basic White card base.  Then, the fun began.  I colored the image with blends.  The perfect color for the tree branch was achieved by layering Light Crumb Cake with Bronze.  After coloring the birds, I decided they needed to be softened a bit.  I achieved this by going over them with the Color Lifter.  Perfect!

For the inside of the card, I simply stamped the larger, solitary bird in the corner.  I contemplated coloring it in, but decided I liked the simple look of it.  In fact, I think just this bird would make cute stationary! 

I hope you like today's card.  I love that cardmaking can be as simple as Stamps, Ink and Paper.  
Create something wonderful this weekend! 
Happy Stamping!
