Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is using shades of blue, which was inspired by the song "Blue Bird" - NOW we're talking my language! I was without Internet (& phone/TV) for ten whole days, so I had to sit out the last two hops. It's true, you don't know what you've got till it's gone, just like the song says. I'm so happy to be able to participate again!
I adore the two new blues in the 2022-2024 In Colors, so I put them both to use on this sweet little Sweet Songbirds card. After buffing Tahitian Tide toward the upper left of 4" x 5-1/4" Basic White CS, I adhered it to the card base and added a Starry Sky DSP circle die cut, popped up on dimensionals. Next came the Crumb Cake branch, which was fussy cut and adhered with glue.
The bird was stamped with Tahitian Tide and punched out, but instead of trying to line up and stamp that tiny beak, I grabbed a Stampin' Blend and carefully colored it in. The bird was popped up on dimensionals as was the wing, which was punched from a scrap of Tahitian Tide. I added the flower trinkets instead of stamping and fussy cutting leaves, 'cause I'm lazy like that. 😄 The greeting was die cut from the same Stylish Shapes Dies set.
