I was so excited when I saw this stamp set because I just love the layering of colors without a lot of work. Then when I actually got the stamp set it was at a loss and just didn’t know what to do. I was determined to use it and so glad I did. Once I started stamping, it was a lot of fun playing with the different colors.


Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Thoughtful Bird Stamp + Thin Cuts Bundle, Inks (Sapphire, Crystal Blue, Pacifica, Saffron), Gold Glitter Gems, and twine from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack.

A couple tips:
*If you want the branch to reach across the card you will have to do some masking but it is very easy. I stamped the branch where I wanted, then put a sticky note (or scrap paper) overtop of most of it and stamped again with just then end of the branch to make it longer.
*When stamping the bird, make sure to stamp the beak before the 3rd piece of the body. I did mine in this order: body 1, body 2, beak, body 3.
