Picture Perfect Hummingbird for PPA287

I’ve been a busy little bee this morning. After playing around with the Picture Perfect stamp set to create today’s card, I realized I had a couple of tips to share with you. So, I went ahead and made a video. I was really on top of it as I had the video uploading as I headed off for my volunteer stint this morning. Now I’m back and ready to share.

As I mentioned, I used Picture Perfect for my card and I combined it with PPA287

The colors for this challenge were just perfect for the hummingbird!

I used a base of Very Vanilla cardstock and added two layers of designer paper from the Pretty Petals stack.

I tried something new with the Bakers Twine at the bottom.  I wanted this accent but didn’t have or want a layer to wrap it around.  So, I took a narrow strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and ran a length of Fast Fuse down it.  Then, I added pieces of Old Olive Bakers Twine being sure to kind of match the color lines as I added each new piece.

Next, I came to the hummingbird from Picture Perfect.  It is stamped in Lost Lagoon, Old Live and Calypso Coral.  After stamping, I fussy cut the hummingbird.  Before placing him onto the card with dimensionals, I added some Crystal Effects to the back of the beak.  When dry, the Crystal Effects adds some strength to this very narrow piece of cardstock.

Here’s a video with some tips that are the result of my playing this morning.

And that’s it!
