Hi Stampers. Are you a bird lover? My mom LOVED watching the birds, she had bird feeders all over her yard! She would love this Birds & Branches bundle. This post has two cards for you, same idea but just a little different. Today’s post also comes with a video tutorial!
The first card starts with a Gray Granite card base followed by a layer of Garden Green. The Birds & More Dies were used to make the detailed peek a book circle and the edge on this layer. Using the Birds & Branches stamp set I stamped the tree on the Gray Granite card base front with Soft Suede and Garden Green ink.
The eggs are stamped in Balmy Blue ink onto Balmy Blue CS. Next, the base of the bird and the bird nest were both stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla CS.
Stampin’ Tip: After I inked the bird nest, I used the brush tip end of a few neutral Stampin’ Write Markers to add a few more browns to the nest by tapping. (See the video for more details on how it’s done.)
The flowers were stamped in Daffodil Delight ink onto Very Vanilla CS and then all pieces were die cut using the Birds & More Dies and then used to make a diorama in the center. Some of the pieces are under the layer and a few are on top, then the layer was added to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This card was done slightly different in that I die cut directly into the Garden Green card base and then dry embossed the card front using the Subtle embossing folder. The nest and eggs are stamped directly onto a Very Vanilla layer that is adhered into the inside (right side) of the card.
For the sentiment I stamped the word “thanks” onto a 3/4″ strip of Very Vanilla CS and punched both ends using the Banners Pick a Punch. This label was then attached to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals and then a few pearl basic jewels were added as a final touch.
