PaperTrey Ink: Little Bitty Bird

Happy Sunday!

Today, I have another card I created for the homebound ministry.  This is September's card.  I used mostly PaperTrey Ink products for this months card.  

The images are from PaperTrey Ink "Little Bitty Bird".  The cardstock is PTI White and Blueberry Sky.  The inks are also from PaperTrey - I'm really loving their line of inks.  They don't stain clear stamps and they give a really nice image!  So Happy!

The embossed foliage is a PTI impression plate called "Vineyard".
I stamped the branch in PTI Dk. Chocolate ink and colored in the leaves with a green colored pencil.  The bird is stamped in PTI True Black on the blue cardstock and then again on PTI Harvest Gold cardstock.  I made the stamped birds into a sticker by running it through my Xyron machine, then cut out the bird and a wing and paper pieced it onto the blue stamped scene, to create some layered dimension.

The window die is not PTI - it is from Poppy Stamps "Small Madison Window".  There is a large window too.  It is a really great die - it cuts and embosses the detail all in one time through the diecut machine.

Inside, I used a Clear Dollar Stamp.  I have the actual stamp, but it is available in a digi collection now - Value Verses 1.  Love this verse...

For I am persuaded
that neither death,
nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities,
nor powers,
nor things present,
nor things to come,
nor height,
nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to
separate us from the
love of God, which
is in Christ Jesus
our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39
