Seriously the Best with Free as a Bird no layer card for Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Seriously the Best

 

Often my Stamping Sunday projects are divided into simple, casual and avid stamping.

But, this time I seem to have created along the borders of those categories.

This simple stamping / casual no layer card,

uses Free As A Bird stamp set images to create a soft background.

Then using the sentiment from Seriously The Best with my Stamparatus, I added the sentiment.

By stamping the sentiment in Memento, you’re free to create whatever background you choose as the black ink will easily work over top.

For my second card casual and avid stamping meet.

To create the background splatter, use a stamp from Waterfront in Bermuda Bay.

Add a Soft Suede branch cut with a Seasonal Layers Die.

Then, stamp flowers from Free As A Bird and color with Stampin’ Blends.

After fussy cutting the blossoms, add them to your branch.

Use a Stitched Shapes die to cut a circle from Whisper White.

Then add a random pattern of Free As A Bird flowers.

Stamp leaves and the bird on Whisper White.

After coloring the bird with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut the leaves and bird.

Stamp the Seriously The Best sentiment on Basic Black and heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Then cut it out with a border so that it has the same feel as the title words on the Mini Catalog.

Tuck in a couple Bird Ballad banner strips

and some frayed Whisper White Flax Ribbon.

    I adore your casual/avid card Sara! Your little blue bird reminds me of a budgerigar! A family pet when we were kids! xxx

      Thanks, Cheryll! How awesome to have had bird inspiration right at your fingertips! I took mine for the bird right from the Bird Ballad designer paper. Glad he looks kind of real.
