Winter Bird: Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas

Happy Day 3 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas! Today I bring you a very pretty card. Not dark or macabre. Just plain old pretty. I hope you agree!

Winter-Bird-1

I have this beautiful set of birds from Inkadinkado (you will probably see more of them this month)…and I just love them. They are really fun and inspiring to work with. I stamped that first, and created the rest of the card around it.

Winter-Bird-2

Sorry that this pic is a little dark…I did use true white cardstock though. I embossed the bird, used my one and only Spellbinder shape (I really need more of those!), and chalked the edge.

Winter-Bird-3

Then I stamped the snowflakes directly on to the card using a pearly blue ink. Added a bit of patterned paper, and a line of Stickles. Easy, but again…pretty.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. And may I ask a favor? Will you please check out my post from yesterday? It gives the info about voting for your favorite Bombshell DT creation…plus I put up a pretty cool card! Thanks!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

WOW! This is beautiful. I have this set and haven't used it near enough. In fact, I don't think this bird has even gotten inky. Might have to take yet another cue from you and your creative and talented brain. Just Stunning Alison!

It's so beautiful and serene! Love that Spellbinders set--it was my first and, I gotta say, I pretty much want them all but love to use the few I have. TFS, Paula

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
