Bunny Tail and a Feathered Friend with a Note to Say Hello

Happy Friday! 

Did you get a chance yet to join us this month at Stamping Sensations? Plenty of time still left to do so and we always welcome up to 3 different creations so hope to see you there!! Our prize is a wonderful bundle of Uniko stamp sets. Our theme is simply Anything Goes with option of Wings or Tails.

I've used both wings and tails on my card today. I found my inspiration in my box of scraps where this cute image had already been previously colored and fussy cut so all I had to do was come up with a card design. 

This cute stamp is Penny Black's Sweet Talk.  I have it as the wood mounted version but it's available now as part of this clear stamp set, possible at a little bit smaller scale. 

I stamped the grass from Penny Black's set Enjoy Life using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink (stamped off once on scrap paper for a lighter shade). Then added a die cut border which I inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and used part of Penny Black's Oscillations stencil. My die is an oldie from Whimsy Stamps but this border die set would be a similar option and includes several dies. 

More Hillside Die Options:

The sentiment is another oldie from Whimsy stamps, part of a ticket sentiment set (I used it by itself without the ticket or matching die). Not the same but similar to this set and looks like there is a matching die set too, just mine is to be used vertically instead of horizontal. I layered a couple different pieces of pattern papers under the sentiment, used a stapler and then tied a jute twine bow onto the staple. I love May Arts Natural Jute Twine. You can get it on a large roll here.
