Freshly Made Sketch #307

October 5, 2017

The sketch challenge at Freshly Made this week, gave me an opportunity to use the Best Birds stamp set.  This is a lovely stamp set but sadly rarely used by me.  For today’s card I started by embossing Whisper White card using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  I stamped the tree branch image from the Best Birds stamp set onto Whisper White card using Archival Black ink before colouring the image using an Aqua Painter and Garden Green and Soft Soft Suede ink pads.  I cut the image using the matching Birds and Blooms Thinlits Die.  I cut Rose Red card using two of the Layering Circle Framelit Dies to create a frame for the card front.  The tree branch is attached behind the Rose Red circle with a couple of the leaves resting on the front of the frame before attaching to the card front.  I trimmed the end of the branch to match the edge of the embossed card and then attached the panel to scored and folded Rose Red card.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Rose Red ink.  I trimmed one end with the Triple Banner Punch.  The banner is attached over the tree branch using Mini Dimensionals.  (Oh how lovely it is not to have to cut the dimensionals in half all the time.)  I stamped the largest bird from the Best Birds stamp set onto Whisper White card using Black Archival Ink and coloured the image using an Aqua Painter and rose Red, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry ink.  The bird is cut out using the matching Birds and Blooms Thinlits Die.  I attached the bird to the card front using dimensionals so that it’s feet just sit on the edge of the greeting banner.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the background image from the Best Birds stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using Crumb Cake ink.  I cut Soft Suede card using the smallest bird from the Birds and Blooms Thinlits Dies and attached if over the stamped background.

I think I am going to have to use this stamp set more because it is so sweet and with the matching framelits there are a number of different bird images to use on my cards.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
