Hello Stampers ~ Today’s card turned out to be a great Masculine Swirly Bird creation.
I am enjoying my time with the girls. Remi always has me laughing and Zoie is full of questions. They love to go to the playground so I am certain if it isn’t raining we will be spending lots of time there. They are very active and I am usually tired at the end of the day trying to keep up with them.
The next stamp set on my Catalog Journey was the Swirly Bird. I wasn’t certain what I was going to do with this stamp set so I started looking at the images. I saw the bird, the nest, and the eggs. I decided to see if I can use the Woodland embossing folder. I had an idea I just needed to see if it would work. I began by embossing a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using the Woodland embossing folder. To highlight the embossed trees I used the Soft Suede ink pad and dragged it lightly across the embossed panel. I added this panel to a Balmy Blue card base using Tear & Tape. I stamped several birds using Pacific Point and fussy cut them out. I stamped one nest using Early Espresso. I also stamped a set of eggs using a second generation stamping using Balmy Blue. I cut out all the images. Now it is time to put my scene together. I added the nest first and then the eggs. One bird was perched on the edge of the nest. The other 2 birds were added to the background using the branches for them to sit on. To finish my card I added some sequins cause you know I gotta have some bling! Here is the completed Masculine Swirly Bird creation.
