Birds & Branches

July 2, 2020

Yesterday on my Facebook Live I shared the Birds & Branches Bundle.  This is a lovely stamp set and co-ordinating dies.  As usual I shared a beginner, casual and avid stamper card.  My simple stamping card was done onto a Whisper White Note Card which is an easy way for a beginner or new stamper to get started, you get 20 Notecards and envelopes for a really low price. I began by stamping the branch from the Birds and Branches stamp set onto the Whisper White Note Card using Soft Suede ink.  I added the leaves from the stamp set using Old Olive ink.  The leaves fit neatly around the ends of the branch. I stamped the bird feet onto the branch using Early Espresso ink before stamping the solid bird image using Pool Party ink.  I stamped the detailed bird image over the top using Bermuda Bay ink.  Lastly I added a greeting from the Lovely You stamp set using Early Espresso ink.

For my Casual Stamper I embossed Old Olive card using one of the folders from the Greenery Embossing Folders and attached it across the bottom of Whisper White card.  The Whisper White panel is attached to scored and folded Soft Suede card.  I created the image panel in exactly the same way as I did for the Note Card using the Birds & Branches stamp set.  I stamped the branch using Early Espresso ink, the leaves using Old Olive ink and the bird using firstly Pool Party ink with the detailed image over the top using Bermuda Bay ink. I also added the greeting from the Lovely You stamp set using Early Espresso ink.  I decorated the inside of the card by embossing a narrow strip of Old Olive card using the same folder from the Greenery Embossing Folders and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.

For my Avid Stamper card, I cut one long edge of a piece of Old Olive card using the border image from the Birds & More Dies.  After I cut the edge, I placed the Old Olive card inside the same Greenery Embossing Folder I used on the Casual card to give some more texture.  I attached the embossed and die cut Old Olive card to the bottom of Whisper White card and then scored and folded Soft Suede card.  I stamped the tree branch, leaves bird feet and greeting onto Whisper White card as before using the same inks.  However, this time, I stamped the bird onto scrap Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink for the detailed image and Pool Party ink for the solid bird image. I cut out the bird using the co-ordinating Birds & More Die and attached it to the stamped panel using dimensionals.  The stamped panel is attached to Soft Suede card and then the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card, I cut Old Olive card using the border image from the Birds & More Dies, leaving a narrow straight edge and attached it across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the bird as before onto scrap Whisper White card, cut it out using the Birds & More Die and attached it to the left hand side of the Old Olive border.

Don’t they all look pretty!  I truly love the beautiful images in the Birds & Branches stamp set and the co-ordinating Birds & More Dies.  I know that I am going to have a lot of fun creating with this great bundle.

Bye for now,
