Today I have a few projects to show you using the bird stamp. Let's start with this feminine little number:
The focal panel is simply stamped in four different blues to look as if a flock of swallows has just flown in. I mounted it onto a darker, stamped card base to emphasise its lightness and added an airy Organza ribbon. I didn't add a sentiment because it would have interfered with the birds, but it could always be added inside the card.
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut an 8.5cm square of Whisper White card stock. Stamp a design of birds using Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy inks. Sponge the card stock lightly with Bashful Blue ink.
- Add eyes to the birds with a Night of Navy marker.
- Tie a piece of Organza ribbon round a 9cm square of Night of Navy card stock and finish in a bow. Glue the stamped panel onto this.
- Cut a 21cm x 10.5cm piece of Marina Mist card stock. Score and fold in half to make a card base. Stamp the front with the Bella Toile background stamp. Attach the stamped panel to the card front using dimensionals.
Stamps: Notably Ornate, Bella Toile
Ink: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Card stock: Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Other: Organza ribbon, Night of Navy marker
Here's another card made with a similar design - a one-layer card this time.
This time I did add a sentiment. Do you recognise it? Yes it's from a free sale-a-bration set! Sadly, this promotion has now finished but you can still grab a bargain in the March Frenzy sale - where selected products have up to 30% off! Click here for details.
I wrapped a little present in copier paper, stamped to match the card, and tied it up with Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. The tag is simply a bird stamped onto Whisper White card stock, cut out with sharp paper snips and tied onto the gift with linen thread.
What a versatile image that bird stamp is! You've certainly not seen the last of Notably Ornate on my blog - I love it! As always, if you'd like to see other cards I've made with this - or with any set I use, just check out the index on my side bar.
