Little Bird Card


Today I'm finally on my way to the Stampin' Up! annual convention! Hee! I'm so excited to experience it first hand! I'm one of those people who lurk online during convention time in hopes that someone will post about all the fun they're having and the exciting announcements being made... I can't wait to be there in person this year!!

I created some swaps to share with some of the people I meet this week- I guess swapping is quite the thing but since I've been travelling, I've only been able to make about 30 swap cards all together and 14 of those are for the Artisan Award winners swap... (I'll post that one after our dinner!).

all products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Fifth Avenue Floral, Hope happens
Ink: Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Early Esspresso classic inks; Versamark
Paper: Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Confetti White cardstock; Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock; Greenhouse Gala DSP; Newsprint DSP
Accessories: Pretty in Pink satin ribbon, Two step bird punch, Curly Label punch, Champagne Shimmer paint, Scallop Edge punch

I tried to keep this one simple but add lots of different textures at the same time. I added shimmer paint to the center dots of the flowers with a tiny paint brush for a little bit of glitz and also distressed all of the edges with a little Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber. They were fun to put together, especially since I've been having withdrawls from my craft room! Hee!

OK! Hope you are enjoying your day! I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! has in store for us this year!!

Lovely card. I like the crumb cake ink. I hope that'll be available here too when the new catalog comes out.

Hi Tessa,
I really love this card and wanted to ask if I may use it for a stamp camp. My ladies would love it too!
