Friday Favorites - For the Birds

Today is Friday Favorites at the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog where we are showcasing retiring products for each Friday in May. I have a lot of favorites that we will soon be saying goodbye to, but I will especially miss the cute For the Birds stamp set. I love these darling little images that you can color in using our Blender Pens and Stampin' Write Markers.

I created this card design for a recent card making night. The layout was simple enough that the ladies could focus on the coloring. I heard many of them say, "I haven't colored like this since I was little." It was cute to watch them transform a black and white image into a colorful masterpiece. As you can see in the three samples below I had a variety of flower DSP for them to choose from and they could use the markers that matched the paper color. 

Are you wondering how I was able to use the image without the attached sentiment? 

Step 1: Place a strip of masking tape over the sentiment. 

Step 2: Ink up the stamp and then remove the masking tape (that's important!)

Step 3: Stamp image. Easy peasy!
