yummy new rubber stamps ...

recently, i was lucky enough to buy some new supplies from the delightful girls over at Destination Art ... 
i have been soooooo inspired by the latest range of rubber stamps and matching die cuts from Paper Artsy 
and guess what ?? 
the Destination Art team stock their goodies. 
so, i decided to treat myself.

this is the stamp set i purchased is from their "hot picks" range HP1004EZ. 
i decided to use the beautiful birdcage stamp with the co-ordinating die cut shown below.
once i had cut the birdcage out using the metal die in my cuttlebug machine, i inked the stamp up with stazon black ink (so that i could colour the birdcages to suit the cards i was making). as you will see below by the three samples i have posted, they turned out a treat ! i have stamped up several more and hope to have a lovely range of "birdcage" cards in a whole rainbow of colours soon.....
