Bird Sampler & some Blog Candy

First a couple of cards and then the candy!

Both these cards were made with birds from Asela's new Bird Sampler set. It's being released on Wednesday and it is fabulous!!!
The humming bird stamp is part of the flowers. (one yellow and one pink) I masked the main image so that I could add some additional flowers. The sentiment comes with the set. I cover the card front with a piece of vellum that had the peek-a-boo circle cut out to help focus on the main image.

Stamps:
-Bird Sampler (Asela Hopkins) by Cornish Heritage Farms

Paper:
-Prismatic Island Mist Dark & Herbal Garden Medium
-Georgia Pacific Smooth White Cardstock-Gold Paper (unknown)
-Vellum (unknown)

Ink:
-Brilliance Graphite Black by Tsukineko
-Copic Markers

Tools:
-Circle Cutter

Accessories:
-Ribbon is Textured Trio by Michaels Stores, Inc.

Technique Used:
-Masking

This second card uses another bird from the set but the sentiment is from Classic Essential Expressions. Both of the cards were colored with copic markers.

Great blog candy! I love your samples of Asela's new stamps! I love Kim Hughes' line - esp the new sets U R A Hoot and Bold Curls are very cool! They are on my wishlist!

Holly said...

I think you should buy em all!!! Hee hee hee!!! I'm terrible, I know.

I have several sets on my wish list, and I just added Asela's newest sets to the top of it. How about one of her new sets?

Or if it has to be a set that is already in the store, how about Kim's latest owl set - U R A Hoot? I don't have any of Kim's sets, and they look like so much fun to play with.

Love the bird projects....very spring ready!
I would choose the 'Quirky Alpahbets'...who can't use another alphabet, and it's so cute.

Thanks for the chance.

SusanH said...

I like Primitive Beginnings (rummage bin) - of course, new is always good, too! Thanks for the chance - love this card with the hummingbird peeking out!

Kerry J. said...

Love your cards! I definitely think that you should give away U R a Hoot since it's so darn cute - and grad season is coming up! Thanks for the chance to win! I love prism cardstock!

Angie said...

I would choose either U R A Hoot from the Kim Hughes collection of Storybook from the Rummage Bin. Your coloring on Asela's new stamps is wonderful. The cards are beautiful.

Allison said...

Hi Kristine...wow, I am so jealous that you are on the DT for CHF! Every week I seem to be over there adding things to my wish list...sigh!

These are some super cards...your coloring is awesome (of course, the stamps call for it!).

I want the Trees background, the Silhouette Blooms 1 and II as well as all the Thomas Kinkade (I can send my address if you like...ha! I kid!)...

Cheers!

Amy said...

Your hummingbird is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

Of the current unmounted sets, I think U R A Hoot would be fabulous, especially with graduations coming up!!!

Julie A. said...

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win the great blog candy! My choice from the CHF website would be
Bloomin Beautiful from the Kim Hughes Collection.

America the Beautiful would be a nice set... and Memorial Day and Fourth of July are both coming up.

There are several unmounted sets that I really like....I think if I were you I would give away "Time to Stamp" by Rummage Bin OR Kim Hughes's stamp set "America the Beautiful"....Two great stamp sets! (THere are lots more - but I tried to limit it! LOL!!!)

Anita said...

Cathy M said...

Wow what sweet candy this is. I would love to be the lucky stamper to when these goodies. This is a hard question to just pick one stamp set. I love so many of them, but I think that the newest thing in is the Sillouette Blooms, that would be fun to play with.
Thanks for a chance.

Jana Weaver said...

Beautiful cards!! I say Summer Fun by Kim Hughes since we're all getting revved up for summer now! :-) Altho, I have to say Asela's NEW stamps look like they will be AMAZING, so perhaps one of those?

Linda SS said...

Your Bird cards are beautiful! I'm in need of flower stamps so I would most enjoy the Bloomin Beautiful set from the Kim Hughes line.

Carol said...

It is so hard to pick just one...my favs were scripty words (I never have enough words or sentiments), Time to Stamp and Bird Sampler that you used on today's cards. I really love birds!
Thanks for a chance to win.

Great cards. I like the Kim Hughes "America the Beatiful" set. 4th of July will be here before you know it.

Tami said...

I would say either of the Silhouette Blooms, U R A Hoot, or Summer Fun (since Summer is on the way). Really picking one is hard!

cadnileb said...

Hmm, tough choice! I think I'd choose U R A Hoot! :-) It looks like it'd be fun to play with.

Love you cards, so pretty! I would love one of the new Friendly Kritters stamps coming out, they are so cute!

Sharon in NE said...

I thought that would be a simple task. I would just go to my "wish list" at CHF, but then I realized, I had a long list there. So I decided on "So Happy" from The Rummage bin.

Nettie said...

Thanks for a chance to win such awesome blog candy and asking input for next candy! I don't see it but I just love URA Hoot by Kim Hughes. I am going to have to break down and buy it!

Your bird cards are gorgeous!

Hey Kristine, it's me Cherie. Gosh, this is a dificult choice, I think the "Beautiful" is my personal favorite. Thank you for your continued inspirations.

Rachel said...

Your blog candy is wonderful!! And I think either of the Silhouette Blooms sets would be yummy candy!

huntla1 said...

I was going to say one of Asela's bird sets, but when I went to the CHF site as directed, I didn't see them. So from what I saw on that page, I would say "Time to Stamp" because isn't that what we all dream of having?

mudmaven said...

Ooh so many good choices. I think I'd select Pretty Birds or So Happy, but almost any of those sets are super! Thanks. ~chris

Rochelle W said...

Super cute cards Kristine.


I would pick 'America the Beautiful' Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set from the KIM HUGHES COLLECTION

Nice stamps! I would choose 'Pretty Birds' and 'Silhouette Blooms'. Thanks for the chance!

Brenda said...

Oh, I would just LOVE to win this sweet candy!! I'm almost out of Crystal Effects, would love to try out some Copics, and the stamps are too cute! Thanks for being so generous and for this chance to win!
My choice for your next give-away would be Silhouette Blooms, So Happy, or Time To Stamp...so many cute stamps!
