I was smitten with the Stampin’ UP! Garden Birdhouses stamp set as soon as I saw it…
I made a few of these for a swap group I am in- it was a lovely color therapy session amid a plethora of things I had to so this week getting prepared to go on the Stampin’ UP! Hawaii Incentive trip tomorrow! WooHoo!
I stamped the Crumb Cake Card Base with Sahara Sand ink to create a background for focal image of the birdhouse. I “painted” my birdhouse with Light Night of Navy, Dark Daffodil Delight, and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. I had good luck coloring the Early Espresso leaves with Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I colored a bunch of leaves with Dark Old Olive, too. See below. Both colors looked great! Usually, I stick to Memento Tuxedo Black when I use blends. Just do a scratch paper image to see if the blends react with the stamping ink- some do, some don’t.
Take a look at the cute Stampin’ UP! Garden Birdhouses stamp set.
Oh, I just love this set!!!!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Love this card. Have a GREAT trip. Well deserved
The background stamping is perfect, and draws your eye to the rest of the card. I love it!
