Valentine Birds


Are you having a good week? Isn't this month just flying by!?! It'll be Christmas again before we know it! I wish time would slow down a bit. 

Valentine's is fast approaching and today I've got some more creative inspiration for you. 
I'm aware you might not be so interested in Valentine's so I'm also sharing ways to adapt card/products for other occassions too! 

Stamp Set: For the Birds, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Black Stazon, Real Red, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
Cardstock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Sweet Sayings Cards & Envelopes
Accessories: Subtles Buttons, Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds

These super sweet note cards come with a pre-printed border and are absolutely perfect for a quick card. A little stamped image or sentiment and you're set to go! They also come with envelopes in Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Real Red - so pretty! These come in a pack of 12 for £5.50 so they work out at 45p each for the card and envelope - what a great deal! 

I chose to use the For the Birds set and colour it in with blender pens. The blender pens give it a lovely watercolour look and is so easy to do and makes great use of all those ink pads you own for the price of a blender pen! 

I cut of the sentiment from the bird stamp which makes these stamps so much more versatile, but you could use a post-it note to mask it off too if you didn't want to cut your stamp! Just pop any sentiment you need on here and your card is good to go! 

For a little extra sparkle I added a dab of dazzling diamonds to the hearts and scattered a few pearls and a button! 

Here's another of the stamps from the For the Birds set. It only took a few minutes to throw together and made a fab quick note card to pop in with some goodies for a friend! I can see I'm going to have to stock up on these little notecards - they are only available until January 27th! Get them while you can!!

I'll be back tomorrow and share with you a few more cards using these gorgeous Sweet Sayings note cards for non-valenine purposes!

Happy Stampin',
