Jen Carter Hello Beautiful Be You 2 wm

First up today is a fun new build a bird set called Hello, Beautiful! I started by creating the background paper using one of the images from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set.  I then cut it apart using the new Fringe Scallop Border Builder dies.  The banner is from the Warm Welcome Die Set and the sentiment is from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set.

Putting the bird together was a lot of fun!  When I went looking for bird color examples I was absolutely amazed at the beautiful birds in the world!  Two of my favorites I pinned here and here. Using some of the colors from those pins, I put together this colorful bird.  First, I die cut her with the Hello Beautiful Die Set & then stamped the coordinating images.  I then added a flower from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set to her hair.

I was inspired to make this card from a picture I found here.  I started by making sure I had space for the sentiments at the bottom.  I die cut the Welcome Word Die & the label from the Warm Welcome Die Set.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set.

Next, I die cut the flowers from the Warm Welcome Die Set & the previously released Fresh Cut Flowers Die Set.  I then stamped them with their coordinating stamp sets Warm Welcome & Fresh Cut Flowers.  These sets intermix so well!  To finish the card off I added in some stamped dots and sequins.
