 This is one of my favorite stamp sets from this year's 2019-20 Annual Catalog.

For this first card I used Sponge Daubers to lightly color a piece of Whisper White CS with Seaside Spray Ink.  Then I stamped the bird image with Memento Ink and colored it with Seaside Spray, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends sets.

I cut out the piece with one of the Stitched Nested Label Dies and then cut a piece of Seaside Spray CS using the next largest die from the same set. I used tape runner to attach the two pieces.

I cut a standard top mat (5"x3-3/4") out of one of the Seaside Spray patterns from the 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack.  And cut a standard bottom mat (5-1/4"X4") of Seaside Spray CS.   I attached these 2 pieces together using tape runner. And then popped up the completed piece above using Dimensionals.

I stamped the 2 flower pieces with Memento Ink onto Whisper White CS, colored them with Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin' Blend sets, fussy cut them out, and popped them up with Dimensionals in the two opposite corners.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped on Whisper White CS using Poppy Parade Ink and glued to  the bottom center of the piece.

And lastly added a Rhinestone to the center of each of the two flowers.

I did 2 very similar cards in different colors and will add them to my next blog.

This is a great scene-building stamp set.  I began by coloring the sky with Balmy Blue Ink.  Instead of using a typical dauber I used my Sponge Brayer to color the sky.  I start at the top and make my way about half-way down the top Whisper White CS mat.  That way the top is a little darker and the sky gets progressively lighter as you move down the page.  I repeat the process until I am happy with the results.

Then I stamped the "mountain" stamp using Elegant Eggplant Ink using 1st and 2nd generation stamping.

The "water" was stamped next with Marina Mist Ink.

Then the "trees" (1st and 2nd generation stamping) and "grass" were stamped with Wild Wasabi Ink.  The "grass" stamp was from the High Tide Stamp Set.

I also decided to stamp the "Seagulls" from the High Tide Stamp Set in the sky using Early Espresso Ink.

I finished the bottom by lightly daubing the Wild Wasabi Ink on the bottom of the card to fill in any white areas.

The sentiment is from the Home to Roost Stamp Set and was stamped in Elegant Eggplant Ink onto Whisper White CS.  The ends of the CS were flagged using the Triple Banner Punch and then popped up with Dimensionals toward the bottom of the mat.

Then I mounted the completed top mat onto a bottom mat of Elegant Eggplant CS, and both pieces were mounted onto a White Card Base using Tape Runner.
