Bluebirds Sketch

Playing along with this week's lovely color combination at Color Throwdown and an adorable sketch by Kim Singdahlsen at Freshly Made Sketches!



I was so excited to get my new "Brushed Birds" set from Papertrey Ink this week!  It was perfect for both of these challenges, and I loved the color combination of light blue, white, and kraft with them!


Used PTI's Woodgrain Impression Plate and a heart die from the Shakers and Sprinkles Kit to cut the heart.  Added a branch cut with a Memory Box die, and a sentiment on vellum from PTI's "Love Lives Here."  It says "Home is where the heart is."  :)


The snowflake panel is made using a technique of Jennifer McGuire's called "Reverse Die Impressions" shown HERE.  It is SO easy after watching the video and the results are beautiful and impressive.  Love this video!   I used PTI's "Silver White Winters" snowflake dies for my card.


I think you will be seeing a lot of these birds, they are so cute and fun to stamp!  I was waiting all week for the set to arrive, just like a kid at Christmas :)!
