It's Border Buddies Saturday Patsy Here!
I know there are lots of sneak peeks for the Holiday Catalog, but we have not had enough time to share all the awesome things from the 2016 Annual Catalog yet! It is filled with so many amazing stamp sets and coordinating framelits
The Best Birds stamp set and coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits is one of the stamp sets featured in our Border Buddies August PDF Tutorial. Our PDF Tutorial is filled with images, supply list, measurements and instructions to complete 8 different cards. Four cards using the Best of Birds stamp set and four cards using the Jars of Love stamp set.
Once I started using this set I just didn't want to stop. I stamped the branch and flowers with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and water colored with my ink refills and Aqua Painters. I then cut them out with the Big Shot and Birds & Blooms Thinlits.
Doesn't the bird look great sitting on the branch surrounded by the scallop circle? The scallop circle is from the Stampin' Up! Layering Circles Framelits. At first I didn't think I needed these as I have circles – but I LOVE the scallop edge on half of the framelits.
The flower centers are the Stampin' Up! White Perfect Accents and I added two in the lower right hand corner to finish off the card.
