Last night I did something I thought I would never do....... make a card without my cricut! I am not a fan of stamping, and went to a stampin' up class with a friend. Wouldn't you know it I fell in LOVE with this stamp set. The vintage birdcages are so sweet I had to have them! This set is the Aviary set and is so adorable!
I bought some ink from stampin' up as well, and found some great colours at Michael's for $1.50! I used the Provo craft Cuttlebug Swiss Dotts folder for the embosing, and the sheer ribbon was a find at a craft swap.
My sister gave me this retired stampin' up set for Christmas, I don't remember what the name is, I'll check back soon with that. I used my Michael's ink for the purple flower, and some sparkels for the center. Another Provo craft embossing folder, this one is called Birds and Swirls.
So, I decided that I do like stamps, but I will NOT be giving up my cricut anytime soon!
P.S. Happy New Year!
