CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Life Is Tweet (June 2012)

Welcome to the June CTMH stamp of the month blog hop!  A little birdie told me you'd be flying by.  The June stamp of the month, "Life Is Tweet," is probably my favorite stamp of the month in the current catalog!  (If you're already flapping, I mean hopping, then you should have arrived from the talented Michelle Loncar's blog and you'll visit Teresa Scrivens next and then Wendy Coffman.)
I love this set so much that I've already made several fun projects with this stamp set.  (You can see two cards HERE if you'd like to peek.) 

This particular project is a diagonal double pocket card that I made using a sheet from the Stella paper pack.  (If you'd like to learn how to make your own diagonal double pocket card, click HERE for a great tutorial.)  I had a blast stamping on the card with Tulip, Cocoa, Lagoon, and Sunset inks.  I paper pieced the bird (stamping her once in Cocoa on the card itself so you could see her beak and legs, and then again on a piece of that pretty patterned Stella paper, which I then cut out and adhered over the original).  The sentiment was stamped on a piece that I cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

The two tags are the only non-CTMH parts of this project.  They're just regular old office supply tags (but you could easily cut your own or use the Cricut to make them); I just have a bunch on hand.

One of the great things about this card is that it's easy to add the ever-popular gift card to the lower pocket, making it a card and a gift in one. ;)
Thanks for flapping by!  Please leave me a little tweet, and then fly on over to see Teresa's creations next.
