Michael's Haul - Martha Stewart Bird Stamps

Day Three, yeah?  Today is showcasing the Martha Stewart bird stamps on the upper right hand corner.  They were $5.99, usually $12.99. 

Admittedly, I had somewhat of a hard time deciding exactly what to do with them.  I mean, they're not abstract like a damask print or flourish, and relatively detailed.  Would probably be good for some Copic markers, but I don't have any of Prismacolor pencils had to do!

I made a set of four for a gift set.  It was SO HARD not to add glitter, 3D embellishments, etc.  Believe me, I TRIED.  But nothing looked good so I just left it.

I wrapped them up in some ribbon and a sprig of fake berries.  Hope it isn't too tacky that I have the price on them, I clip it on with a mini-clothespin.  Usually I use the clothespin to clip a card and envelope to keep them together.

These cards weren't really in my comfort zone mantra of "more glitter, more glam, more embellishment...just...more".  I think I'm okay with it.  I think.
