The card I am sharing today is one that I really love!  I have always been a big reader.  So as soon as I saw this set I knew it had to come home with me.  Plus it makes some great cards!


Stampin' Up!, Birds Eye View, Deckled Circles, Blending Brush, Bubble Bath, Wink of Stella, Jackie Beers


Stamp Sets

The main stamp set is the Birds Eye View set.  The books, owl, and glasses are from the set.  There are two other owls included, as well as some additional images.  Since I love to read I had to go with the books for the first card.  And those glasses are just the icing on the cake!!  There is another set of glasses and a monocle.  I used the large round ones in the same Moody Mauve as the layer.

The simple sentiment is from the Artistically Inked stamp set.  I did not want to add more layers.  So looked for a simple sentiment.  This is a perfect one for any occasion and it fits perfectly there in the corner.


The card base is Balmy Blue with a layer of Moody Mauve.  The focal layer came about from a negative of the new Deckled Circles laying on my desk. (These are a must have an are available once the new Mini goes LIve.) I know you have heard me say things on my desk are the beginning of a card.  It is true once again.  The negative was the perfect size for the images.  For a soft color I chose Bubble Bath.  It is a current favorite of mine!  And used the Blending Brushes to put a light layer of it down.


The images all have a shimmer to them.  You may need to look closely to see it in the photo.  I colored everything using the ink pads by squeezing them and getting ink onto the lid.  This is old school for coloring with the blender pen!  But this time I used Wink of Stella as my paint brush.  It works the same way as adding water or the blender pen liquid.  Just with the addition of getting the shimmer.  That is a Win / Win!!!
