Hi there,

Today I'd like to share with you another card using the Birds of a Feather Set 726. I loved this cool little lady with the high heels and decided to combine the set with the Cinderella Slipper Set 528 for my card today.

I stamped the chick in Versamark and heat embossed with Dragon Fruit. I used the Spellbinders Eyelet Circles die to cut and emboss and daubered a little Memento Lulu Lavender around the image before I removed the die. She was then colored with Copics: V01, RV02, RV04 and V04. A Sakura glue pen was used to apply Lavender Iris Glitter to her wing, tail and tufts. Dimensional Glue was added to her eye and to the heels. A little thread of Diamond Mesh from Mon Ami Gabby was attached for her necklace. She was set aside at this point for the glue to dry.

To make my background I spritzed white cardstock with water and then applied some Violet Color Burst on top of the spritzed cardstock. I dried the cardstock with my heat tool. The Cinderella Slipper was stamped randomly in Versamark and heat embossed with Belgian Cream. I then decided to go over the entire background with Memento Lilac Posies, I rubbed a tissue gently over the entire piece to take any ink off the embossing powder, this really made the shoes pop!

The sentiment from the Cinderella Slipper Set was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Mulberry (one of my favorite detailed Tuscany EPs that I like to use for sentiments!). It was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Rectangles, daubered with some more Lulu Lavender.

Three brads were "blinged" with Mulberry and attached to the circle along with some pink adhesive pearls and rhinestones (Want to Scrap Bling). Three white feathers were threaded through holes and attached to the back with tape. The card was finished by layering the background piece to the card based, which had been edged with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape, then some Diamond Mesh from Mon Ami Gabby was added around the sticky edges. There was still some stickiness around the mesh and so I applied Bubble Gum glitter to take care of that! The sentiment and the image were then added with Dimensional Foam to finish up the card.

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to maybe pick up this sweet little chick set. Both of these new sets are such fun and are so versatile, they can be used for many different occasions.

Hope to see you this weekend for our Joint Blog Hop with Die-Versions where we will be featuring Cancer Awareness.
