Julie: CatsLife Press Bird stamps

Hi there you lovely Scattered Scarleteer you. How's things?

Which are the images shapes, styles, details and figures which you keep returning to on your projects over time? Flowers? Hearts? Crowns?

One thing a few of us here at Scattered Scarlet have in common is a love of bird imagery and luckily for us there's been a whole flock to choose from in recent years as bird designs have popped up everywhere from stamping and papercrafting to fashion and interiors.

This week on my own blog I'm going to be indulging in birdy-themed posts so, when it came to sharing something with you today, these cards, featuring bird stamps from Catslife Press were the obvious choice.
For these tiny general greetings cards I've used the 'Here's a Good Tale' and the 'Always On the Go' stamps:
On the 'Always On the Go' stamp, I managed to snip away the bird design from the actual wording to create two stamps for the price of one ... because I'm greedy like that: The cards were made from scraps of leftover card and paper in shades of kraft, beige, neutral and lilac:I then added a length of raffia, a snippet of cotton ribbon and a button:... and ran the whole thing under the sewing machine a few times: As for those extremely pretty quails' eggs ... they're 100% natural so I can't take any credit for those I'm afraid!
There are currently two further feathered friend Catslife Press designs available in the 3DJean shop namely the 'Royal Bird':
... and the 'Perfect Pair':

And seeing how most of her Design Team love birds rather a lot ... I can't imagine they'll be the last Jean gets in stock!

In fact, there are already many other bird-themed items in the shop, such as these:... so have a browse around the Catslife Press and Lost Coast Designs stamps and the Artchix sheets amongst other things, and see what leaps / flies out at you.

Julie :-)
