A new stamp set and some Kissing!

Good morning all!
I had the most fantastic afternoon yesterday with my lovely neighbours and their Italian and Ukranian families! It was a 90th Birthday celebration and we sat and chatted, ate and drank all afternoon! Bliss!

Of course, I then had to make a card for today and I wasn't sure what to make, then I spotted one of the gorgeous new Hostess sets that popped through my door earlier this week!

So here is what I came up with...

This is very simply one of the lovely stamps from Morning Meadow which I coloured with Tempting Turquoise and Real Red before stamping. I then stamped the sentiment from the same set, in Basic Gray, perfectly positioned using my Stamp-a-majig. 

The little birdie has been 'kissed'! 'Kissing' is when you ink up one stamp, then 'kiss' it with another un-inkined stamp, before stamping, to create a pattern. My birdie was 'kissed' using one of the stamps from the Hearts a Flutter set. I like the 'feathery' look!

A close up showing the little sparkly finishing touch, along with the paper piercing created using the Paper Piercing Essentials Pack.

Cardstock - Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Stamps - Morning Meadow, Hearts A Flutter

I hope you get to enjoy some sun today, especially if you work all week! I will be working, sadly, but needs must!

Have a great day!
