Tweety Birds

Welcome to another DeNami Design Product Spotlight! Today's featured stamp is the ultra sweet Tweety Bird Border stamp.

I know, right? Makes you wanna say "Awwwwwwww . . . " Every time my kids walk past my computer while I'm visiting the DeNami Design blog, they always coo over how cute the birdies in the blog header are. Well, you can just imagine how thrilled they were when I showed them that the Tweety Bird Border I received from Paulina for this Product Spotlight is the stamp on which the DeNami blog header is based!!! (I've gotta say, I was pretty thrilled, too!)

I decided to give this Spotlight stamp a clean and simple treatment--I love having a nice selection of flat, mailable cards in my stash! And I think this one is a multi-purpose one.
I love flexibility!

So, in addition to the Tweety Bird Border, I used these products from the DeNami Design store: the "XOXO" sentiment from the Love Sentiments stamp set and Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I paper-pieced the birdies using some patterned paper from Stampin' Up (thanks, Colleen!) and added three rows of machine stitching, using a quilting stitch that I thought looked kinda like birdie scratches/tracks. That's my story, anyway, and I stickin' to it!

The Tweety Bird Border is on sale for the next week, so be sure to grab it while you can! And I highly recommend swinging by the DeNami blog today to see the rest of the design team members' takes on this super cute stamp. I'm off to check them out now myself! It's always such fun to see what everyone does with each Product Spotlight stamp!

Thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss today!

Emzi, fun way to use these chicks - you could use this image a bunch of different ways and I love your idea. With the blue chicks, you could also do something about feeling blue. Cute, cute, cute!!!!!

Colleen Dietrich said...

SO adorable, Em! I thought the stitching was another DeNami stamp (hey, maybe whisper in Paulina's ear about making one of those track stamps!)...so neat that it's a textural touch that is still mailable. And thanks for the shout out for the paper!
