Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I hope you are having a wonderful week! Yesterday mine just got better … my daughter called and told me that my order had arrived – my new battery charger for my camera!! I am back in business and so excited to finally share a new card creation with you!
I have chosen the stamp set Flying Home … I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for spring, and with spring comes the birds singing their beautiful songs. When I saw this stamp set in the Occasions catalog, I knew I had to have it … I love watching the birds!
I used the Water Color pencils and Blender pens to do the coloring on my bird houses. I was so happy when Stampin’ Up! brought these back, they are so simple to use and still give you that soft watercolor look (with no mess) and I think they are perfect for newer stampers because it gives you a lot of color choices without a big cost investment.
I stamped the center birdhouse twice, colored it and cut it out and then popped it up to add some dimension. I used the Lots of Labels Framelits dies to cut out my birdhouses and the Bermuda Bay mat used for color. This entire piece was also popped up!!
This is a great shot of all the dimension created using the Stampin’ Dimensionals. You can also see the cute little Metallic Enamel Shapes I used on my card … 2 round ones to ground my focal point and one heart that was added to my greeting.
The greeting comes from the “Label Me Pretty” stamp set and was punched out with the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch.
I also added some texture by embossing my Chocolate Chip cardstock with the “Pinewood Planks” Dynamic Embossing Folder. I’ve been just waiting to use that folder and I think it works perfect with this card!
Feels good to be back creating and sharing! Hope you enjoyed.
Thanks so much for stopping back, and enjoy your day.
