You're so Tweet!

I'll be working in the kitchen for the next few days, getting ready for a High Tea that I'm hosting for some girlfriends this Saturday.  Of course, I still want to spend time for the studio ... so today I made a CAS (clean and simple) card using the color challenge from SCS this week (CC373 - wild wasabi, pumpkin pie, bashful blue).  Just love this color combination!  This is a quick and easy card that was fun to make.  Hope you like.

"You're So Tweet"

Stamps:  It's a Stretch (SU!); Love Bug - sentiment (Fiskars)
Paper:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Tombow glue, and adhesives

I stamped the main image in Early Espresso ink onto a Whisper White card front, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.

I re-inked the bottom of the main image (pot) and stamped it onto a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I re-inked the top of the main image (tree top) and stamped onto a scrap of Wild Wasabi polka-dot DP.  I re-inked the top of the stamp again  (bird sitting in tree top) and stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.    I colored the bird with Stampin' Write markers Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie and then cut it out.  I also cut out the pot and tree top.  I glued the pot and tree top on top of my main image and then glued the blue bird on top of the tree top (paper piecing).  I colored in the other two birds on the main image with the Stampin' Write markers.

I stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi ink, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement and then mounted the card front onto a card base of Wild Wasabi cardstock.

For the inside panel, I used Whisper White cardstock and stamped one of the birds in the bottom right-hand corner, coloring it in with Stampin' write markers.

This was a quick card that only took about 10 minutes to make.
