Hello, my friends. 

Can you believe Christmas Eve is tomorrow? Are you ready?! Ready or not, despite all the time we spent at home this year with the social distancing, and isolations, it still felt like this year flew by. Hopefully next Christmas this will all be over and we can return to our normal Holiday traditions with all our family and friends.

Well, let's get on with today's card... Is it too soon to start thinking about Valentine's? Personally, I was actually excited to work on something other than Christmas and the little bird from the latest LITTLE BIRDIE Set was the perfect inspiration for my first Valentine's Day card.

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I started by stamping out the birdie on the left onto a piece of Bristol paper. The stamp comes from the LITTLE BIRDIE set and the ink I used was FADEOUT INK. I then placed the MIRROR IMAGE STAMP in the MISTI tool and stamped the little birdie again this time onto the MIRROR IMAGE STAMP using FADEOUT INK. I then picked up the image off the MIRROR STAMP by placing the paper face down to pick up and transfer a mirrored image onto the Bristol piece of paper. To get a good transfer I repeated the last step 3 times. 

The images were then watercolored in using all the Atelier inks linked below.

For the top panel, I used the LEAFY FOREST STENCIL and blended out the leaves using ATELIER GODDESS GREEN and very light pressure with a blending brush. To the top half of the panel, I die cut a heart-shaped window opening to frame the lovebirds and then trimmed down the panel to attach over the lovebird image with some foam tape.

The sentiment on the card panel comes from the RACCOON HUGS set that I stamped out using ATELIER TWIGGY BROWN Ink. The little heart in the center of the birds also comes from the Raccoon Hugs set. Difficult to see from the photos but I added some LIQUID PIXIE DUST to the heart.

I hope loved my little Lovebirds Valentine's Day card and got some inspiration from it. Mirror stamping is a great way to stretch your supplies and create cute Valentine Scenes with any critter stamp you may already have. Now that you saw my no line results with Mirror Stamping, maybe you will give it a try.

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Wishing you all a safe and very Merry Christmas!
