Here’s a cute card using the March Stamp of the Month, S1603 Sunshine Birdies.
I used this sketch from Retro Sketches to create the card:
I used left over paper from the Whimsy Fundamental Collection. I love the patterns and colors in this assortment. You can see the embossed watermark pattern on the Thistle and Crystal Blue papers and on the Pixie, I turned it over and showed off the white and pixie pattern. All the papers in the assortments are double sided.
I don’t make off-sized cards often so it was nice to step outside my norm and try something different. These cards are 4″x4″. You can use a A5 envelope to mail them. I stamped and colored in all the images with using a watercolor pen and ink from the top of the ink pads. Very simple technique. I went over all the images with various colors using the Wink of Stella pens…love the light amount of shimmer you get. I fussy cut the images out.
I popped the images up with our 3D thin foam tape. It barely lifts them off the paper so mailing is easier, yet still gives them more dimension than if I had adhered them directly on the paper. I used shimmer tape, white and pink, an old button brad, and some silver twine I had in my stash.
I stamped the inside of the card with one of the sentiment stamps and another birdie. Super cute!!! Here’s a picture of the Fundamental papers. We have stickers and embellishment assortments to match! These collects are great for scrapbooking based on the colors in the pictures!!
I’d like to do some quick math with you. If you place a $50.00 before March 5 (when my Cruising Flash Sale ends), you can get this stamp set for $5.00, saving $12.95. If you purchase two E-size stamp sets for $30.00 each (total of $60.00) you’ll get the 3rd E-size stamp set free ($29.95 value). With this order, if you add it to the Cruising Online Orders, you’ll be able to get your choice of a My Reflections Paper pack, a value of $9.95! So for $65.00 (2 E-sized stamp sets and the March SOM for $5.00), you will get $52.85 of FREE /Discounted product!! You will not see this great of a deal any time soon.
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!!
