Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird in Eden!

Hey there! Today's card was created simply for fun, and I love how it turned out! I combined three stamp sets: Free As a Bird, Garden Birdhouses, and Eden's Garden Bundle to come up with this earthy but spring-like card!


After I adhered a layer of In Good Taste Designer Paper to the Crumb Cake card base, I then cut Soft Succulent Designer Paper with an Eden die and added it with tiny dots of liquid glue. I then used a Blending Brush to apply Crumb Cake ink over both layers to give it an aged, vintage look. I stamped the birds on the branch from Free As A Bird (I love those birdies and this set, I have my fingers crossed that it doesn't retire from the catalog next week!) with Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake, then singled out just one birdie to color with Stampin' Blends Markers. I cut him out with Paper Snips and darkened his eye with the fine tip of a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker before adhering him above the birdhouse with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I created the "sticks bow" by wrapping Linen Thread loosely around about three fingers a couple of times, tied in a bow, then cut the loops apart. I adhered below the bird with a couple of glue dots.


I stamped the birdhouse from Garden Birdhouses with Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake, cut with my snips, and then colored with Naturals Stampin' Blends. It was also adhered with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.


I cut Soft Suede card stock with the label from the Eden dies, then stamped and heat embossed the Eden's Garden greeting with white embossing powder. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (carried over from the Holiday Mini) to pull it all together.


Inside I stamped a Free As a Bird sentiment on In Good Taste designer paper with Soft Suede ink before adhering. I cut a bit more Soft Suede designer paper with another Eden Die to add below the sentiment with liquid glue. I finished off the inside with more Crumb Cake ink and a Blending Brush.
