Welcome to the "Friends of True's - Swirly Spring" BLOG HOP!
There will be a prize package donated by Inky Antics that includes True's entire, newly released, Swirly Spring stamp line...
The minute I saw this collection I new I had to have the swirly birds set and I quickly got to work. I made two different projects with the adorable budgie images...
The first one is this full-sized card that I made for an upcoming anniversary. I absolutely love to make my own "patterned paper" with stamps and the images in this set were exactly right for this technique. I stamped up the bird a number of times and colored it in to make a full sheet of "patterned paper". Then I cut it out and added an embossed section of white paper to the bottom for the sentiment. A pleated ribbon is a soft touch to pull it all together.
The second project was a set of tiny "You're So Tweet" cards... perfect for sending out a quick thank you or thinking of you message. These were SO easy to make! Just cut some white cardstock, stamp one of the bird images, color it up, add a sentiment and doodle a quick frame. Layer it onto some colored cardstock for a quick card. (I colored up a few extra birds and then cut them out and popped them on on the front to give it a bit more dimension.)
I had such a great time playing with this set and I love that I can make some quick and easy cards with it. Perfect for all of us "on the go" gals!
