Sweet Little Bird

Good Morning Everyone,

Welcome to another weekend of fun wit the Stamping 411 Challenge. I hope you will find a little time this weekend to play along.

Here is the Sketch:


…and my interpretation……


Pink and White Bird 002

This is the first time I’ve used this cute little Bird and Branch Punch (It’s called the Extra Large Two-Step bird). How sweet is it? Pretty Simple card again with very little stamping. I did stamp the Solid Stripes Background as the background piece with Pretty in Pink. I wanted to show a softer side with this cool Stamp. I actually stamped it twice and taped the two pieces together to achieve the width I wanted.

I then matted it on pink ….did a mat using my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and matted that on Pretty in Pink again and then onto the Base of the card.

The Bird and branches were punched out of Whisper White and attached with dimensionals.

Now for the flowers. I did the three Flower punch on Copy Paper and sponged the edges of five flowers and attached with a brad in the center. then pulled up one layer at a time to scrunch towards the center. I did two size flowers.

When I saw this sketch…I knew I would use these flowers…..

I didn’t put a sentiment as I love to keep cards blank until I need them.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you liked my interpretation of the sketch today and will have time to play along with us over at Stamping 411

Wishing you all a ……

Stampinglee Good Day!
