Birthday Surprise

Hello everyone! Chris here with you today and I hope you had a great start to 2019 - Today, I have a Birthdaycard to share with you, with the brand new Bird-Stamps.

I wanted to create a group/scene card for a while. The sweet little birds are great for that - it takes a litte time but I think it´s worth to give it a try.

  • for a card like this I prefer to create a "Dummy"  before I stamp it for my card 
  • (look at "Tipps & Tricks)
  • Things that are in the foreground are first stamped then masked - step by step - for masking you can use Post-it notes or masking paper.
  • This card I colored  the images with Distress Inks and for details used some Colorpencils and a white Pen.
  • cut out 2/3 of the "group" 
  • Background: Distress oxides (seedless preserves, spiced marmalade and fossilized amber).  
  • used the brand new Word-Dies "birthday", one in black/grey (to create a litte shadow) and one in white
  • glued down the "group" and arranged the sentiment and a little black label - that´s it :) 

A small "Dummy" on cheap paper is often helpful, like this one 

The super cute Birds "From my nest"  - "Aus meinem Nest" are stamps from the new Januar release  and available on friday 11th.

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafty time.
