Somebirdy Special and my first DS word book

I don't know exactly what it is about Kim Hughes stamps but they just make me happy. Last night I wanted to just stamp, no patterned paper no extra embellies, just stamps, ink and paper. I used two sets from Kim Hughes, Cute Curls and Pretty Birds and cut the card base with my Cricut using my new Wild Card cart. The background is stamped in Antique Linen distress ink (have you figured out this is my fav distress ink yet *lol*) and in green on the bottom for "grass." I stamped the sentiment on one piece of paper and then cut them apart using my craft knife. The flower tops and bird are all popped up on demensionals. To finish it I threaded some sheer ribbon through the scallop openings and tied a bow at the top. I wanted a springy card, and I'm happy with how it came out. I think I send it as one of my Valentine's.
This is my very first word book I designed in my Cricut Design Studio. SO much fun! Except for the flower paper the entire thing is stamped. I used my Don Juan cart for the font of the book and cuts from Storybook, my other absolute fav cart! I bound it with my neglected Bind It All, though I think it will be getting more use now that I have the DS. The pages were left pretty simple as it's suppose to be for pictures.


I hope you are having a great day. Leave me some love, would ya? Thanks!
