One of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is getting to play with the new products first.  Today’s card is one of those sets.  When I saw the cards Brian King had made for a Stampin’ Up! event, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

I do believe this little guy is precious!  The best thing about this stamp set is some of the unusual sentiments.  I believe reading this sentiment upon receiving the card would just make me smile.  And isn’t that why we make cards?  Of Course it is!!

My bird is somewhat colorful I know.  I chose the card base to go with the branch so it wasn’t the only brown.  But after coloring the bird, I decided he needed a bright color to make him shine.  That is the reason for the Pumpkin Pie.  And the leafy DSP from Whole Lot of Lovely just seemed to fit perfectly.

The one special item I used for the first time today are the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.  They are tiny little shapes of clear epoxy.  You get two sheets. One is clear and the other glitter.  I used one of the clear over the bird’s eye.  It looks like I added one of the squiggly eyes.  I hope you can see it in the photo.  I will definitely be using these little guys again soon.

Thank you for visiting with me today!  I very much appreciate it.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  Clicking on any item will take you directly to my online store.

Reminder:  There are only a few days left to place your reservation for the stamparatus.  You will receive it before it goes live in the 2018 Annual Catalog in June.
