TCM Day 1

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining me for Day 1 of TCM stamp previews! I've created a little card featuring some lovely images from today's featured set. I completely and whole-heatedly love this stamp so much!
It is another design by Nina B. aka Stamp Creator Extraordinaire :)

Okie, so here is the card!

I was so excited to dig in and play with this month's stamps! How cute is that birdcage? And how about that saying? Now that I think of it, I should have probably used one of the cute little birds in the set...But I have a feeling they will show up on my other preview cards!
I was also itching to use this My Mind's Eye paper I just picked up at the shop.
The papers I used are mainly from the Follow Your Heart collection, and a couple from the Miss Caroline Howdy Doody line. I loooved this beautiful hex paper and this doily paper. I still have a few sheets of each of these, so I will be sharing a few more projects in the upcoming weeks with these beautiful papers.

I added some of my vintage pink shabby ribbon with a pearl brad, and outlined the lovely roses from this paper with a brown marker.

For the birdcage, I used a stamp from the Tweet of You set from TCM, I used a white pen to fill in some of the thicker horizontal 'bars'. I like the way this gives dimension to the image. I could have gone a step further to add some Stickles to the white parts, but that would have meant that I would have had to look for them...And that seemed like a lot of work at the time :) So I passed on the glitter.

I did, however, get to use a beautiful hand-made molded heart gifted to me by my sweet friend Cayla. (Thank you Cayla!!!) She has a wonderful blog that you should check out, and has a post here that features some more ideas with her resin shapes.

Thank you for joining me today for our first day of previews and I hope to see you back right here as we feature another beautiful stamp set!
