FS210 Birthday Birdhouse

It's Sunday and that means it's Featured Stamper challenge time again!  This week the honour goes to Willow01 and I was inspired by her Love ya Bunches card.  I swear in the beginning it looked more like hers, but it kind of morphed into this!  :)  Obviously I changed a bit, moved the sentiment, changed the image, added a few layers, different sentiment etc...  This also qualifies for this week's Our Creative Corner challenge to cut it out.  Now you know I love to colour with my copics and how AWESOME are these new birdhouses by JustRite to play with!!!!!

I stamped the birdhouse and border from Birdhouses twice in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (B32, B34, G21, G24, Y21, YR24, B000, E51, E53, E55).  With one, I only coloured the birdhouse, cut it out and popped it up on foam tape.  It was cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with Olive card cut with Eyelet Circle Nestabilities.  The sentiment is made from stamping the frame from Fancy Tags (one of the new CLING sets!!!) in Memento Bamboo Leaves, the sentiment from Happy Everything in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out using the matching die, also from Happy Everything.

There's also a sale at JustRite - selected Cling sets are 25% off and there is also a RETIREMENT sale!!  Yep, some sets are retiring, never to be seen again, so if there's a set you've been dreaming of, now's the time to get it!!!

OMGosh Kathy! I've been eyeing this stamp set since I saw it and you've really made it hard to withstand the temptation! This is just a gorgeous card. I love the colors and you've done a fabulous job with your copics. I see you're an instructor so that makes sense! Love how you cut out the birdhouse, it just pops!
