So Tweet

The NEW Chic Boutique set is 'so tweet'... it just may be my favorite new set from the catalog. Have you had a chance to pick a favorite and add it to your wish list?
  • Today's layout is courtesy of Mojo Monday #95. My Rich Razzleberry card base is 5 x 7 (A7) and topped with two sweet layers: So Saffron and a stripe from the NEW Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper collection.
  • I stamped the bird cage image onto watercolor paper in StazOn black ink. Using a blender pen dipped in Creamy Caramel I shaded the cage. TIP: I wanted to shading to be light so after 'loading' my blender pen I 'wiped' it onto scratch paper before coloring.
  • I used my Rich Razzleberry marker to add accent and color. My tweet birdie was colored in So Saffron. For a little sassy something, a petite button was added as the 'handle.
  • My horizontal panel started as a 1.75" x4.75" piece of textured Basic Gray cardstock. I topped it with a layer of So Saffron that has a dainty scalloped edge. Some Rich Razzleberry polka-dot grosgrain ties the whole thing together. TIP: This panel is adhered to my card using Stampin' Dimensionals - it creates a cute 'pocket' effect for the images.
  • I stamped the frame in Basic Gray onto Very Vanilla cardstock and used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to insert the Rich Razzleberry 'hello' sentiment. I love this simple sentiment - perfect for making projects in advance and then customizing later. This can easily be for a birthday, thank you note, or 'just because', etc.... all depending on what I add to the inside.
  • Today's sassy somethings are the blooms I created using the Birds and Blooms Sizzlits. They are perfect for layering and eliminate all the hand-cutting that I normally do. Plus, this is a great way to use your scraps. I love how they dress this card up!
