Pairing Serene Scenery with Best Birds provides the best of two worlds. Serene Scenery designer series paper stack contains 4 sheets each of 12 double sided designs. Each of the 6 x 6″ designs provide an awesome background to stamping right on top of it. There have been wonderful projects shared on Pinterest since the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog went live on June 1st.
I have been wanting a detailed bird stamp image and Stampin’ Up! delivered this year. Not only is there a great stamp set, but there are thinlits to coordinate with the set. And the best part…. buy it as a bundle and save 10% over purchasing both items separately!! Since I recently invested in Copic sketch markers, I couldn’t wait to try my hand at coloring the birds. This bird was colored with R00, R05, R12, YR00, YG61 and shaded with N2. Unfortunately I stamped, die cut and colored the tree branch about 3 weeks ago and failed to note which Copic colors I used.
Furthermore, there are several occasion sentiments with the stamp set that makes it very versatile for cardmaking. I used the Layering Oval Framelits for my sentiment and popped it up with stampin’ dimensionals. I love the additional scalloped ovals included with the new framelit set. You can have a peek of color or a larger block of color to accentuate an image… your choice!
I will be playing with this set more over the next couple of months. It’s just too cute not to!
