I am very excited to share with you couple of cards using the newly released stamp sets and dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I know the Birdie Notes stamp set is one of the favourite set from last release inspite of it being a free set with your order over $60. Now not only is this stamp set available for purchase, there is also another new full size birdie stamp set called Birdie Friends. Love that Birdie Friends has coordinating die set too. I had a great time colouring these cute birdies from the stamp set. They just make me feel so happy. Here is my first card.
In the mean time, I die cut the smaller scallop circle using gold glitter paper, adhered acetate sheet on the back of the circle die cut. Then stamped the three birdies as well as the banner and watercoloured them. I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out. I stamped the sentiment inside the banner. To make the shaker element, I adhered the birdies and banner on to the top centre of the watercoloured panel, added iridescent mini heart confetti to the centre and adhered the gold glitter scallop circle die cut which I prepared earlier using foam adhesives over the birdies and banner. There is no white backing panel on the shaker element. This shows the beautiful colour wash done on the background through the shaker box. I used Metallic Gold 6mm and 4mm sequins to embellish.
On a watercolour paper, I smooshed Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon distress ink on top of the panel and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn towards the bottom. I did one colour at a time, making sure I dried the colour before proceeding to the next colour. This will give layers of colour and more depth than the solid look. I then used the smaller Window Frame from the Window Frames dies to die cut at the centre of the panel. I love the stitching detail on the outside. The idea was to have the sky, landscape and sun at the centre. So when I inlaid the die cut back in place, I used another piece which I smooshed with Mustard Seed and Fosslized Amber distress ink. This not only gave me sun effect I was looking for but also a focal point on which I added the birdies and other accessories.
The Birdies, branch, leaves, nest and eggs were black heat embossed on watercolour paper, coloured with Zig Clean Brush Pens and die cut using the coordinating dies. I clustered them and adhered some flush and some with foam adhesives. The sentiment also from Birdie Friends stamp set is black heat embossed on Stitched Label 1 die smooshed with Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks. Just to tie in all the black colours, I added Onyx 6mm and 4mm sequins. Finally I gave the die cut elements and the background except the sun a generous quote of clear shimmer. Gorgeous shimmer 🙂
