Birds and Branches ~ Just Because Card

Hello lovely people!!
A big welcome to my blog.

This last week I have been enjoying sharing brand new cards using BRAND NEW product from the new upcoming Annual Catalogue that has not gone live yet to customers.
We all enjoy a sneak peek right?

Today I have a super adorable one to share with you, using a brand new bundle that will be available to order from the 3rd of June. 
Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post to see how you can actually get this stamp set NOW, and with so many discounts involved!

I have actually combined another new stamp set on this card, called the Lovely You Stamp Set for the adorable sentiment. 
I have added a couple of other new products including the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and the Gilded Gems.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see a full supply list, all of which are/will be available in my store here.

Here's a look at the finished card.
I have used a Coastal Cabana background and added layers of Basic Black and Whisper White.
On my Whisper White piece is where I have stamped the branch and leaves from the Birds and Branches Stamp Set in a mixture of Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green.

The colour choices are what really inspired this card. I wanted a mixture of blues and greens and BRIGHT.

Here is a look at the colour swatch of colours that I ended up using for this card...

I have then stamped and die cut a mixture of elements from the stamp set including the gorgeous birds. 
This stamp set is what we call a two step stamping set. This means that you stamp more than once to create the finished image.
For my birds I have stamped the base of the bird (the solid image) in Coastal Cabana and then stamped the detail over the top with some Pacific Point. Lastly I added the wing detail with some Bermuda Bay.

I have then stamped my 'nest' in Sahara Sand and the gorgeous little flowers in Melon Mambo.
Lastly I have stamped the eggs in Balmy Blue.

I have then die cut all of these out with the coordinating dies. These dies are gorgeous! You must check them out as they have a lot of pieces that are extra - above and beyond just cutting out the stamped images.

Here's another close up of the finished card where you can see some more of the detail.
I have used the adorable Forever Greenery Trim - that metallic gold trim is my FAVE!
I have wrapped this around the card three times and tied a bow - fraying the ends.

I also bent up my flowers a little and added a Gilded Gem in the centre. If you have seen my cards lately, you would know that I do love those gems.

I also added a beautiful gold leaf die cut from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper.

The sentiment I have used is from the brand new stamp set Lovely You, which I have heat embossed in white on Basic Black Cardstock and fussy cut out. I love the font in this stamp set.

Here's a look at the decorated inside to my card where I have added layers of Basic Black and Whisper White and just some simple stamping replicating the colours and images I used on the card front. 

I have once again added one of the sentiments from the Lovely You Stamp Set, with just a simple 'smile'.
