Yes, for 24 hours (Monday, Nov. 27th only), your order will ship for free. So make your list and check it twice, because free shipping doesn't happen very often!

Cheery Chirps, Christmas Card, CAS

The whimsical little birds in Cheery Chirps just make me smile every time I look at them. I spent an afternoon with a stamping friend recently and got a ton of coloring done. I did four of these birds in various color combinations, along with a bunch of other images that I'll share another time (more on that later).

I think the clean simplicity of this card works well with the bird image. The soft aqua-blue of the Pool Party bird is complemented by the Pear Pizzazz background. I did use some retired Corrugated Kraft to add a little texture. (Love that stuff - stocked up on it when it retied, LOL.)

Coloring with Stampin' Blends markers is so easy! You can see how the colors blend into each other without a sharp line. They also are fabulous for coloring embellishments, like I did with the rhinestones! If you look closely in the zoomed image, you can see I added some Clear Wink of Stella on the wing feathers. It's so subtle, you have to hold the card just right to notice it.

Okay....about those other images I colored. Next week will begin my
Twelve Days of Christmas TAGS!
Each day will feature a different tag, and all will be completely different from one another! Some will be cute, some more formal, some just....well, you'll have to wait and see.
