Good Friend

I couldn't resist giving you a quick peak at a new stamp set called Good Friend. It's soooo cute! And for once, I've created a card that is not part of any sketch challenge or colour challenge; nice for a change.

The base card is one of the new yummy In-Colours - Baja Breeze. Makes me think of Bali!!
I've stamped one of the flowers onto this cardstock as a background in the same colour ink.
Then I've added a strip of DP from the Summer Mini - Bali Breeze (what did I tell you: Bali?!)

This stamp set is a 2-step stampin' set, which means more than one step is required to produce the final image. So I've stamped up the body of the bird and it's little beak seperately, cut them out and mounted onto the Vanilla cardstock with dimensionals. The legs have been stamped directly onto the cardstock. Then I grabed the little worm from Bugs & Kisses, inked him in Close to Cocoa, cut out and put in the little birdies beak.
The sentiment is from Family Phrases, stamped in the Baja Breeze and then I've cut out using the Window punch.
So once I've made my little 'bird picture', I've layered onto some Close to Cocoa cardstock. I've finished off the card with some paper piercing.
I think this is going to be a very popular stamp set; there's so much you can do and I can't wait to show you some more very soon.
