~ Lovely Birds ~ The Craft's Meow


I have never been in love with such cute little birds as these! And they're a wonderful little part of a new stamp set The Craft's Meow DT is showing off today called "Lovely Birds."

My oldest sister (who is 28)... became so enthralled by that little bird bath that she keeps declaring that she'll want those bird baths on her wedding invitations. I in turn, am not amused, and tell her that she will do all the cutting and paperpiecing. (and then she says that if I start cutting now, by the time she decides to get married, they'll all be done). 



Oh, but let me tell you, that bird bath was SO. MUCH. FUN. to cut and trim and paste! I simply stamped the image on cream cardstock and then carefully cut it out. Softened with a little creamy brown ink, and pale color pencils, it looks perfect. The "Love" sentiment is actually a section of a larger sentiment that you will get to see on the actual stamp set......

Patterned background stamp is this set, an earlier release by The Craft's Meow and Nina Brackett. I added color pencil details and more inking to soften the whole card. The blossom is by Prima, with a few fabric leaves added (snipped out from the fabric mentioned here)

All right, go stop by all these fun little places to check out the other team-members' projects. They are sure to blow you away!

Wherever you go along the line, leave a comment, and you just might be one of three happy people picked from all the blogs and announced at The Craft's Meow blog tomorrow. Fun giveaways over the next three days till the release on July 1st!

happy hugs,
