Of The Earth- Bluebird of Happiness :-)

Hi Stampers!!

I have been having fun the last few evenings creating cards for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Happy” Virtual Stamp Night and decided to incorporate the CC534 Color Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the CAS Colours & Sketches #128 Sketch Challenge  with the JUN15VSNG “Bluebird of Happiness” Challenge.

Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as the inspiration from their galleries!

To create this card:

Ink the bird image from the retired set, Of the Earth, with Blackberry Classic Ink and stamp two images onto Pool Party cardstock and one image onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock.

Punch out the images with the 1 ¼” Square Punch and mount onto Whisper  White cardstock squares that have been die cut with the MFT Stitched Stax Square Die.

Emboss a  piece of  Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder™ , trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Add a piece of 3/8” Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding and mount the panel onto the Whisper White card base.

Mount the bird image squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the digital sentiment to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Of The Earth, Digital Sentiment from Word Art Wednesday

Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Printer Ink-Black

Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder

Accessories: Big Shot™, Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, MFT Stitched Square STAX Die, 3/8” Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding


Thanks again for visiting- I will be sharing more cards throughout the evening and tomorrow :-)

I like the different textures going on here with the embossed hexagons and the stitched edges of the squares. The colors you've chosen are very pretty together! Thanks for making CC&S part of your stamping fun!

Super use of embossing and I love how your bird squares are reminescent of postage stamps. Thanks for playing at CC&S.
