I’m not sure I used the images in this stamp set much but I like the greetings. I’ll admit that coloring the birds was a little intimidating to me. I really need to get over that and play with my Stampin’ Blends more. The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) was the first DSP I purchased from the last catalog because it’s just so pretty.
This past weekend I held a Stamp-a-Stack at my house where we created 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs. This is the third post sharing the cards this week.
I don’t know the original inspiration for this card since I saw it so long ago but I somewhat followed this card by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek and this one by Tami White. The slit is 1 1/2″ long at the halfway point.
Also, today is the last day to order any of the retiring products that haven’t sold out yet!
Using Basic Black, stamp the bird on the watercolor paper. Let set before watercoloring.
Squeeze the Pacific Point ink pad to get some ink on the cover, use this ink and the Aqua Painter to color the bird. Use the Daffodil Delight marker for the beak. Die cut.
Using Early Espresso, stamp the branch on Crumb Cake, color in the leaves with the Wild Wasabi marker. Die cut.
Using the Banner Triple Punch, punch the end of the Soft Sky cardstock. Using Early Espresso, stamp the sentiment on the banner piece as shown.
Die cut the circle from the Daffodil Delight paper using the largest of the Stitched Shapes circles. Emboss using the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Adhere the banner to the card base about a ½” from the bottom and close to the left side.
Place the circle on the card base so you can determine where you want to adhere the branch. Adhere the branch and bird.
Adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the circle (put one under the birds head). Reveal the sticky. Wind the Copper Metallic Thread around your fingers 5 times. Place on the dimensional under the birds head. Adhere to card base.
