Whimsical Wings

Our Rubber Stamping Group will be making these cards on Wednesday. The cards feature one of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up, Whimsical Wings. It is a hostess set in the current UK Stampin' Up catalog. It is simply delicious!


You don't have to use the same designer cardstock that I chose, but you do need to have some coordinating papers.

The bird image was stamped in pigment ink -- Stampin' Up's Craft Close to Cocoa, and then the image was heat set with SU gold embossing powder. A sponge was used to apply SU Creamy Caramel ink, which was burnished into the paper using a circular motion.

Other Stampin' Up stamps were used to create sentiments that were added to the card.
