From the Heart

From the Heart stamps run a fantastic monthly progressive challenge and this month’s image is just right for many occasions, I decided to go with a birthday card. SAM_1699(watermarked)

Materials used: From the Heart Stamps – Apple Blossom Birds stamping card scalloped oval dies (x-cut) Happy Birthday acrylic stamp snippet of pink ribbon Copic pens enamel accents- black DL card blank made from Centura Pearl card

Method: I printed out two images and coloured them in with Copics. I cut one image using the die, edged it with a black pen and put a small drop of black enamel accent in each scallop. (Confession: the enamel was not in the original plan but in edging the card the pen slipped so I needed something to cover the ‘accident’!) I cut the two main flowers from the second image, shaped and glued them onto the first image so that the leaves on the left side over hung the die. I attached the ribbon to the card front and a separate bow before adding the topper and stamping the greeting with Black Archival ink.

Thank you for visiting. Take care. Pippa

I would like to enter my card into: From the Heart Stamps May – Apple Blossom Birds

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    I love the coloring! Is it based on a certain kind of bird?
