My projects today use the new and adorable Season's Tweetings stamp set.  This is a LARGE set filled with the sweetest bird images and beautiful sentiments.  Once I started I couldn't seem to stop using this set!

I made two very different cards to showcase how versatile this set is.  The first card is more of a fun one.  I used only one bird image and created a "pile of birds" using the masking technique.  Masking is something that I don't do often and when I do, it's simple as possible!


I started by stamping one bird at the bottom of my panel and simply worked my way up. I think I used a total of 4 masks. The colouring was done with some basic Copic colouring.


I stamped the word "tweeting" repeatedly with Versamark ink onto the grey card base and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I simply stamped "Season's" onto some white cardstock with black ink and trimmed it into a banner shape.


I fussy cut around the top of my pile of birds and foam mounted that piece onto the card base.  A little glitter pen and Glossy Accents finish this card off!!

My next card is a little more sophisticated, still cute, but a little more elegant.  I started by stamping 3 of the birds onto Bristol paper and coloured them with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I fussy cut them out but there are co-ordinating dies for this set (which will make their way to my craft room, I'm sure :))


Because these bird images and sentiments are quite large, I decided to make a longer card.  3 1/2 X 9, as a matter of fact.  Again, I used Bristol paper and ink blended a night sky, snowy hills background.  I used Tumbled Glass for the snow and Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and a bit of Chipped Sapphire for the sky.  After that had dried, I heat embossed that beautiful sentiment with silver embossing powder.  I LOVE that script!!


Finally, I foam mounted each of the birds onto the panel and foam mounted the panel, as well, to the white card base.  I added a few "stars" and "snowflakes" using a white gel pen and added some Glossy Accents to certain areas of each bird.


This set is amazingly versatile. Beautiful sentiments and the cutest bird images I've ever seen, a definite must for your stash :)

Finally, I just wanted to show you quickly a project made using the new Miracle of Christmas stamp. This is the most beautiful sentiment!!  This card features the Hexagon Solid Stack Honey Cuts and the Hexagon Stitched Stack Honey Cuts and some simple ink blending.


The sentiment is really all you need on a card, it's just beautiful!!
