A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Sheltering Tree?

tree02Did that work? No, not really but I couldn’t help myself. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! has finally unveiled its Occasions and Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalogs and Sheltering Tree is already a rising star! starYou’ve already seen me post several items stamped with this adorable stamp set and here’s one more.

But first … don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration is on and for every $50 of product that you purchase from the Annual or the Occasions catalogs, you earn a FREE stamp set, DSP pack or accessory from our SAB catalog. WOO HOO!!!!!

The design of this card was inspired by Brian King of Stamp with Brian. I love his projects because he has a unique way of pulling together different elements to create harmony and balance. For instance, I was intrigued with his use of DSP as two, thin, verticle strips. Say what??? Verticle strips? Yep! And it works, doesn’t it?

The two sweet birdies are from White Christmas. I chose to watercolor them because coloring them with our Stampin’ Write Markers made the birds too dark.  I pressed down the closed lid of my Lost Lagoon pad to create an ink palette on the inside of the lid. Using a Blender Pen IMG_3667as my coloring tool, I quickly touched my “pallette” and that picked up enough ink to paint the birds a subtle color.

For the ground, I inked the stamp with Basic Grey and stamped off on scratch paper first before stamping on the card.
