Apart from the make-n-take cards I made at the OnStage Convention in Telford in April, this is the first time I’ve used the Free As A Bird Stamp Set!
It’s an absolutely gorgeous image to colour using our Stampin’ Blends. The colours I used are : leaves – Light and Dark Old Olive; branches and birds – Light and Dark Crumb Cake; bird’s chests – Light Calypso Coral; flowers – Light Bermuda Bay; background – Light Pool Party.
When I was making this card, I had someone in mind who I want to send it to. I chose the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set, with her in mind. The font and style of this sentiment blends with the image brilliantly.
I kept the design of this card simple because I wanted to concentrate on the colouring. I adhered the top Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer onto a Layer of Pool Party CS and onto a Whisper White CS card base. To decorate the inside of the card I added the same two layers.
Instead of more stamping and colouring, I fussy cut one of the birds from a sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP) called Bird Ballad. I have seen many cards made using the suite some using stamped images, some using fussy cut stamped images and some with fussy cut images from the DSP. The amount of variations available is amazing. The co-ordinating set of dies is called Stitched Nested Dies, and doesn’t include any dies for stamped or printed images!
