Sneak Peek of Bashful...


A mix of old and new.....Paper Bird & Bashful. It's possible you might have missed the re-release of Paper Bird.    Paper Bird was brought back just for Stampaganza, the Buy 2, Get 1 Free Stamp Sale.  The sale ends on July 31....and Paper Bird will go back into retirement.  Bashful is the new color of the year and will be released on 8/1/17. 

Here is a look at all of the images included with Paper Bird-

While I love the sentiments included with the set...I am way behind on Thank you cards....so I went with an upcoming Thank You stamp for my sentiment.  The Thank You actually comes preformed in a curve.  The beauty of acrylic stamps is you can easily change their shape on your acrylic block or stamping platform.  You can make a straight sentiment curved or the reverse as I have done here.

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Your Next Stamp. While I have yet to add any of YNS designs to my collection, there are several on my wish list!


Design Tip-My bird image is actually a couple of layers for added dimension. I first stamped my bird on my white panel with Cocoa ink.  I then stamped the image again on Bashful cardstock and fussy cut the image out.  I then stamped just the wing part again on Bashful and added to my layers.  I grounded my bird by adding some burlap twine for added texture.
