Hello! I just got a few new additions to my stash – this sweet little set from Mama Elephant named (so aptly) Oh Happy Birds, being one, my itchy hands couldn’t wait to make something out of them! 🙂 I was also terribly wanting to make something like this absolutely adorable card from the Waffle Flower blog. This stamp had the perfect little tiny birds for me to try the layout! Double the happiness!! 😀
The video tutorial was so helpful – I followed the steps just as Nina has shown. I drew the pencil line grid, cut out a square mask, stamped the birds using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the background using Mustard Seed, Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar. I then cut out the panel using My Favorite Things Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner and then stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts Fanciful Swirl and Memento Tuxedo Black.
I then cut out another panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and the decorative lines from Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders. For the card base, I applied Shaded Lilac distress ink and stamped the dots from Technique Tuesday Lots of Dots using the same ink. I then adhered all the panels together using foam tape. I love how beautiful the pastel colors suit the technique so well!
Submitting this to AAA Card Challenge #60: Easter, Just Us Girls #335: Color Challenge and Friday Mashup Challenge #245 where I’ve used the theme (Easter theme or Chicks & Bunnies) and the sketch. This is the last challenge over at Friday Mashup. I haven’t played a lot of their challenges, but its always sad to see a challenge wrap up. I wish them luch in whatever endeavour they choose to go on! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
