Sadly, this is my last week as a guest designer for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Blog. I’ve so enjoyed being a part of this very talented team for the month of August! I look forward to playing along with their challenges in the future. 🙂
I used the Best Birds stamp set to create a fall themed card for the challenge this week.
Here is Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #63:
I started by adhering a panel from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP (available Sept 1) to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock with SNAIL and then to a Rich Razzleberry card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Best Birds photopolymer stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and I cut it out with a Layering Circles Framelits die. I adhered the Very Vanilla circle to scalloped circle cut from Rich Razzleberry card stock with a Layering Circles Framelits die with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the branch, berries and bird images from the Best Birds stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a panel of watercolor paper. I watercolored the images with an Aqua Painter and Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze inks. I let the images dry completely and then cut them out with the matching Birds & Blooms Thinlits dies.
I trimmed a little off the end of the branch and then adhered the die cut images to the Very Vanilla circle with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I adhered a strip from the Petals & Paisleys DSP pack to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock inside the card.
