Cheery Chirps with Painted Autumn

Cheery Chirps with Painted Autumn from

Hi there and welcome!  I’m in a creating and list making frenzy.  In case you forgot ( 😉 ) Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  I’ve been making lists of things I want to accomplish and of course my grocery list.  Don’t want to forget any of the ingredients!  The first thing I played with today was Cheery Chirps with Painted Autumn.  So, that’s what I’m going to share!

I have been having the most fun coloring with Stampin’ Blends!

Somebody is going to have to take them from my hands.

Today, I started with a Pool Party cardstock base.

Then, I added a layer of Very Vanilla.

On the Very Vanilla, I scribbled with the Light and Dark Pool Party Blends.

Then, I scribbled in some Color Lifter to create a little more visual texture.

At the bottom, I’ve added a strip of Painted Autumn designer paper.

Next, I stamped the large bird from Cheery Chirps.

Then I colored him in with both light and dark Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.

As you can see, you can create quite a lot of color variation with these four shades.

After coloring the seed pods and berries, I added a little dome of Fine Tip Glue to the berries.

Next, I cut the bird out by hand.

Tip: I didn’t cut all the way around the stem and seed pods in the bird’s beak.  Instead, I used my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends to color the small bit of Very Vanilla cardstock so that it blends into the background.

Then, I finished the card with part of a doily and some gold thread.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my Cheery Chirps with Painted Autumn card.
