Hummingbird Don't Fly Away...

 Have you played with the hummingbird stamps from the Picture Perfect stamp set?  Don't you love it?  Well, I have some great news, it is carrying over to the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  Woo hoo!  You know that I try to give you as many helpful hints as I can and for this card, here's what I will tell you - work backwards!  For the hummingbird, stamp with Piece #4 first, then #3, then #2 and finally #1.  I even have taken a Sharpie pen and wrote the number on the little tab piece of the stamp so I know which is which when they are out of their case and on my blocks.  For the flower, I do the same thing.  In this case, I used Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo.  The #2 stamp was stamped with Melon Mambo but stamped off once first so it was lighter than #3.  Boy, Ihope that makes sense!  If you stamp the Pink Pirouette first, you can't see the outline well in order line it up - especially with reds and pinks which tend to stain the stamps.  The black border is from a non-Stampin' Up! photopolymer set I have had forever.  It just worked perfectly for the corners.
