June on a wire

I love birds.

I love hearing the cardinal first thing in the morning; at dawn the male is always at the top of the Cook Island Pine across the street from my house.  On a perfect day, it’s his “Good Morning” that wakes me up.  If I’m too sound asleep (read: stayed up way too late stamping) then I miss his song, and it’s the shrill, repetitive call of the Francolin that shatters my dreams.  Either way, it’s a pleasure to lie in bed for a few minutes listening to all the diffferent bird voices as the day begins.

Maui Stamper June 2013 calendar

  • For the Birds Stamp set
  • Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Stampin’ Write markers
  • Pool Party FFIP
  • Stampin’ Sponge
  • Simply Scored
  • Borders Scoring Plate

The first time I stamped this design, I used the stamp just as is….but the wires that the birds sit on started and stopped in the middle of the calendar page and it bothered me.  I added the sponging to make it seem more complete but I was just kidding myself.

Then my Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate arrived in my pre-order from the Spring Catalog (I LOVE GETTING PRE-ORDERS.)  It had the perfect curves to make edge-to-edge wires!  I scored them first, then without moving the guides ran the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker in the score lines to further define them.

Every once in a while, I amaze even myself.
