It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. This week is a pretty color combination! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the new In Colors!
Birds can be ALL colors, right? So, I figured so could their nest! I did add just a HINT of green to ground the images a little to make sense. lol!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Daffodil Delight cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Tahitian Tide cardstock was embossed with the Into the Clouds Embossing Folder, then added to the front.
- A 3 x 4 piece of Design A Daydream DSP was added to a 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 piece of Starry Sky cardstock, then added to the front.
- With the Sweet Songbirds stamp set, the nest was stamped with Starry Sky, the leaves with Parakeet Party, the larger bird with Tahitian Tide and the smaller bird with Daffodil Delight Inks on Basic White cardstock. The large bird was punched with the Bird Builder Punch and the rest were hand-cut.
- The wings and beaks were punched from Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight cardstocks and added to the birds.
- The eyes were stamped with Memento Black Ink. They were assembled and added to the nest with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The wood sign background was stamped OFF Tahitian Tide Ink and the greeting with Starry Sky Ink on Basic White. It was hand cut and added to a 1/8 x 2 strip of Starry Sky cardstock and added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
- Finally, a yellow Fun Flower Resin Shaped flower was added to the trio of leaves.
Such a fun and sweet little card! OK, go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
