For The Birds
I wanted to share another card I designed this past week using a brand new stamp set, For The Birds from Stamplorations™ along with the coordinating die cuts. I love watching birds and when I saw this set was the June stamp set, I knew I would have this set in my collection.
I am going to link this card to the Addicted To Stamps and More #245 “Leave a Little Sparkle Where You Go” Challenge , the Splitcoaststampers Free for All F4A378 "Wing It" Challenge (05/19) , Word Art Wednesday #286-#287 “Anything Goes”Challenge and the STAMPlorations™ CAS Card Challenge for June "Anything Goes".
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out their fabulous Design Team samples and challenge entries- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the For The Birds (STAMPlorations™ ) image using Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply black embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
2). Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the bird with the coordinating For The Birds Dies (Stamplorations™).
3). On an acetate envelope, press Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks, spritz with water, lay a piece of white cardstock into the ink, lift and repeat the above steps until you are satisfied with the results. Die cut the oval using the MFT Stitched Ovals STAX™ Dies and layer onto a black oval die cut with the same die (split in half to allow the edges to peek out from behind the Oxide layer).
4). Using a Clarity™ Stencil Brush along with the Memory Box Modern Chic Chevron Stencil to lightly stencil Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink onto a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock. Use a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen to brush over the stenciled area and mount onto a piece of black cardstock before mounting onto the white card base.
5). Layer the die cut oval onto the card front using dimensional foam and add the die cut embossed bird image.
6). Heat emboss the sentiment from For The Birds with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, trim the sentiment and create the flag points (I used a retired hexagon punch).
7). Add the sentiment to the card front along with a few sequins to finish off the card.
