VIDEO: The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge + Happy Birds

Yes, a little birdie told me that it is finally Release Week at Wplus9, AND coincidentally, the start of a new The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge! Oh happy day! I can't think of a better reason to have a party.

You can find out all of the details about the challenge and the blog hop participants at the bottom of this post. But first, let's take a look at the new Happy Birds stamp set and dies that we will be releasing on February 5, 2016.

Happy Birds
4x6" Clear Stamp Set
$14 USD

Happy Birds Companion Die
Steel Rule Die
$14 USD

Aren't they adorable? As usual, you'll be able to purchase them together or separately, but we will also be offering a limited edition Happy Birds Design Kit as well! The kit will include the stamp, the die, exclusive patterned paper, pre-scored card bases, card stock and enamel dots.

Both of my cards today were created using the contents of the kit. And I just could not resist making these little cuties wobble with Action Wobblers!

You can watch the video below to see what I mean.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

In case you couldn't tell in the video, these little guys just crack me up!
