The Bird and I

are thinking of you!  I love birds (almost as much as butterflies) and had to get the Nested Friends bundle from the January-April Mini.  I hadn’t had much time to play with it, but did get this card made and it has sparked my creativity so I’ll be playing with the bundle a bit more in the near future.

Nested Friends, Bird, Friendship, Thinking of You, InColors21-23, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanAprilMini2023

I love using Blender Pens to color with ink – it allows the details of the stamp to shine through while getting complete coverage.  The nest is stamped in Early Espresso Ink and then I used a blender pen to spread the ink from stamping to color the nest.  I added a bit of color for the leaves using the soon-to-be retired Soft Succulent Marker.

The bird is also stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the same method as the nest.  I did add a little bit of Pumpkin Pie for his breast using a Watercolor Pencil.  The eggs are stamped in Balmy Blue ink.  Both the bird and eggs are die cut using the coordinating dies.

The sentiment is from my favorite Go To Greetings stamp set.  If you don’t have this set yet, you are missing out.  I love the fonts and different sizes of the images and use it frequently – as in – the set just sits on my table and does not get put away.

The base of the card is Soft Succulent – measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  The Basic White panel measure 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is mounted on a piece of Early Espresso measuring 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.

Thanks for stopping by!
