Blockheads New Release Part 6 -Birdcages

Hi Everyone,
More Blockheads New Release projects today!  I have used the Victorian Eccentricities Set.  I have three cards that use the Flourish Birdcage stamp that is also available as a single.

I decided that I would make a gift set.  So, I made three all occasion cards that can be bundled with some pretty envelopes and tied with a ribbon.  I changed out the colors and sentiments on each card.  Let's get started with the "Love" card.

The Birdcage was stamped on a dotted DP from K & Company with Vintage Sepia Versafine ink.  The Love sentiment is also from Blockheads and can be found in the Special Delivery Set.   I added a sheer blue ribbon to finish it off.  Here is a close up.

Next is a Thank you card.  The Flourish Birdcage is stamped on Peach CS with Vintage Sepia and distressed with Ranger Inks: Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.

The image was layered with brown and rust CS.  The Thank sentiment is from the Special Delivery set.  Here is a close up.

And, a little peek at the inside.   I used the sentiment form the Painted Butterflies Set.

The third and last card is a Friend card and uses another Sentiment from the  Special Delivery Set.  I stamped on striped DP with Vintage Sepia ink.  The center piece was layered with amethyst and blue CS.

I added some tulle and a big antique brad on the left side. And some little pearls on the opposite side.  And here is a close up of the tulle.

And one more view.

What a versatile stamp.  I could make stacks of these cards!  I do need to make some more in fact.  Well, I will get to that later.

Now, how about a few Challenges for Flourish Birdcage Gift set:

That's all for today.  I will be back tomorrow with Something.  Love ya.
