Birds Galore!

Here are some cards I made using a stamp set from Inkadinkinkado...another one of my favorite stamp companies! Don't you just love that name! Its so fun to say! This stamp set is called 'Birds Galore'. As most of you already know, I LOVE Birds and I collect a lot of bird stamps. This set is one of my favorites because the images are so romantic, beautiful, and have floral motifs in the images of the birds. I used only black, white, and 'Blush Blossom' paper by Stampin Up!. The backgrounds are created either with a cuttlebug embossing folder or miniture flowers from a 'Rubber Stamp Tapestry' set. Then I just added ribbon and brads to embellish and complete the cards. These cards were made for a Featured Stamper Challenge on The featured stamper was "Lost in the 60" and her cards can be seen here If you've never participated in a featured stamper challenge basically it goes like this: One stamper a week is 'featured' on splitcoast. The contestants then pick a card from the stampers gallery and recreate it. They must change three things about the card. I changed the colors, the ribbon, and the background paper on my cards.
I donated these cards to a hospital who requested cards for women in their final stages of life due to cancer.
