Well there are two sets that I just love right now – the cute birdcage & bird set Aviary and Valentine Defined…

In Valentine Defined there is a cute long stamp featuring hearts on lines…I was looking at it wondering what I could do with it when it came to me – I could use those cute birds with it…

So I dug out some Valentine colors and got to work…what do you think?

I think it turned out cute!

For browns I used Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip & Soft Suede…and wanted a subdued red to offset them and so I choose Riding Hood Red…

My hearts on a wire are stamped using Riding Hood Red and that owl in the cage, the hearts and the Love sentiment are stamped using Regal Rose…

To get perfect placement for my birds I used my Stamp-a-majig – if you haven’t used that tool before you can find my free tutorial showing you how to do so in easy steps by clicking HERE

My birdcage, cute birds & owl stamps are all from the cute set Aviary (pg 121), my hearts on the wire and larger heart stamps are from Valentine Defined featured in the Occasions Mini and my Love sentiment is from XOXO, also in that mini catalog.

I added a Scallop Edge Border and some polka dots with my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for a whimsical touch…

I love those birds & bird cages and it’s a set I just can’t do without…too cute!
