BG Birdie Stamp Set

I'm not sure the name of this little Basic Grey birdie set as I don't see a name on this one or my fishie one. They are great value little stamp sets. I stamped in SU blk craft and then embossed. I used a couple different sketch challenges. SC223 and WSC80. I used BG Wisteria 6x6 paper pad and pulled the colours from the pp's. I stamped the one image on pp and used copics to colour the birdies in. Added some ribbon and a couple eyelets and a brad to the one card. Kept these really simple. I have such a hard time with simple, mine seem to come out blah instead of ahhh! I love this paper pad. Great fun!
Happy stamping gals!

Basic Grey Gone Fishing

I used up my xmas gift certificate at a LSS a few weeks ago and bought my first BG 6x6 paper pad - Wisteria. I also bought two little BG stamp sets. This fishie one and a birdie one. Great value priced. I tried to match up some Bazzill papers and SU papers to the Wisteria pp. Not the easiest. I used sc226 from SCS for the layout. This card and 3 more were made a couple weeks ago (and are sold) but, I just can't seem to get my butt into the dungeon lately to make cards. Sigh. I do need to get one made for next Fri. for my 9th Wedding Anniversary. Yikes! Maybe, after this spa weekend, I'll be refreshed and come back with some creativeness in my brain, instead of laziness in my bones.

Could also be all this beautiful weather to enjoy!

Thanks for peaking in!
