Inspired By Stamping: New Australian Birds Set


Hello again, friends!  I'm back with another card using the newest release items from the Inspired By Stamping store! :)  Today we are showing off the Australian Birds set.  This set has four gorgeous birds in it.  I chose to use the kookaburra image!  Take a gander...



I started by sponging some white cardstock with some brown inks to create a distressed and aged feel.  I then stamped the kookaburra image from the Australian Birds stamp set onto the cardstock and watercolored it.  I then fussy cut it out for placement on the card.  Instead of fussy cutting, you could also use the Australian Birds cut files to make it easier, too!



I then used more of the sponged paper to use as the panel for my sentiment.  This one is from the new Big Hello set that is FREE this month with any $50 purchase!  I added some enamel dots for added interest.



I then layered my elements onto a card base that was jazzed up with some masculine patterned paper that's edges had been distressed.  I think this is totally perfect for a man's birthday card!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear about it in a comment below! :)



I am entering this card into the following challenges: Cardz 4 Guys: Anything Goes, Crafty Sentiments: For a Man, Cuttlebug Mania: Wildlife.

That's all for me today!  I hope you take a chance to go and grab this newest release from the store and, if you spend $50, you will get a free stamp set!  Also, come and join in the fun of our current challenge, too!  If you use products from the Inspired By Stamping store, link them up in the Customer Gallery as well!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
