Heart Wings from New SNS Stamps

Hi there!!  Today I wanted to share a card using one of the two new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp sets by Beccy Muir that were just released this week - Bird Song and Bicycles.  You can see the full sets by just clicking on their names. 

I have to say I'm in LOVE with these two sets! So pretty, fun, and versatile - good for cards of all occasions & scrapbook pages too!  Be sure to check them out, I think you're going to love them as much as I do!

I haven't had as much time as I'd like to play with them yet; but I have SO many ideas tossing around in my head! So, until I can put all those ideas to paper; here's the first card I got to create using the Bird Song set.  (click photo for closer view)

There's three different styles of feathers on this set and they are all gorgeous!  So I decided that I wanted one of them to be the focus of this card.  Isn't that feather gorgeous?!

The set also has some beautiful sayings as well.  But for this card, I wanted to show how well this set works with some of our other sets too!  I think it's great when you have sets that you can mix and match.  So much versatility!

And to show you even more versatility.....this great saying is actually from one of our Valentine themed sets!  Stampette Set 454 - Heart Wings  So, Don't forget to keep a really open mind when you look at all your stamps!

Used this way, the saying works so well for something other than Valentines day.....anniversary? mother's day? best friend? maybe even a birthday?  There's probably lots more great ways to use it!  And I just loved the way the "heart wings" saying worked with the feathers!

What do you think?  Be sure to let me know you stopped by!  I always love and appreciate your comments!  Hope you'll stop back again!
Until next time,

Love the monochromatic look of this card Julie. I really like your saying and how you die cut it, and just the right amount of bling - great card.

Really pretty, Julie! Love the feathers as background and focal point at the same time! Gorgeous colors!

A wonderful card, Julie - I especially love that sentiment with your card - I would not have thought of using the images like that at all, and it looks fabulous - love the shapes, too. hugs, de

Julie, the feathers just pop against the pretty teal color! I also agree with Donna. I love the sentiment. This is also one of my favorite sets!

Simple and elegant - love the teal.

These are beautiful Julie and I love the addition of the ribbon on the first one, like you tied it around the base. Hope all is well out in your little space!
