I have a card for you today using LJD All Heart, LJD All Heart Die-namics, and Wonky Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics, along with a couple more products that you’ll see more of in coming days, Puffy Clouds Die-namics and Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics. And, of course, an old standby, Sheet Music Background.
I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, stamped Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray hybrid ink and the background, then popped it up on foam mounting tape after tying some baker’s twine around in a bow. Next, I cut some Ranger watercolor paper with the oval die, did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors, stamped the sentiment, and popped it up as well.

The darling birds were stamped with Steel Gray hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers. I tried to make them look like love birds. Did you know love birds were a kind of parrot? Me neither--until I did the research. There are many color combinations but the more frequent one I found was this one so I went with it ;-) Aren’t they adorable??? They were popped up on foam, too, as were the new Puffy Clouds Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. I am SO tickled about these clouds!! I finished off with those super cute hearts cut from the new Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics—I am really diggin’ those little hearts!
And that’s it from me for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four!
