I am loving this new set from Stampin' Up! called Nature's Nest. It was the first set that caught my eye…well, there were LOTS of sets that caught my eye…but this one was a "must have" for my first order!
I'm always thinking about stamping, and if I don't stamp for a whole day it's just not right! I usually wake up thinking of what I'll stamp, and today was no different…so I hopped out of bed (it's MUCH easier to hop out of bed when I don't need to go to work lol!!), gulped down my coffee and headed into my stamp room. Here's what I came up with, hope you like it! Now my day's complete and it's only 10 a.m.!!
I stamped the nest in Black StazOn on Watercolor Paper, then used my Aquapainter with the ink from the inside of my stamp pad covers to color it. The colors I used are…for the nest, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Soft Suede. For the leaves, Old Olive, Always Artichoke and a little Soft Suede over the top to dull them down and make them blend in. For the eggs, Sage Shadow with Bermuda Bay.
The CS colors are Kraft, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede, and that's the new Soft Suede poka-dot ribbon flipped over to omit the dots. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, my new "go-to" word set! Oh yeah, and I also used my other new favorite, the Finial Press embossing folder…how did I ever live with out that???
Thanks for stopping by, hope you fit in some stamping today!
