ID: DT Apr/14 - eCut Chickadee - Sing As If - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: April 19, 2014

Love the chickadee - one of the newest eCut designs from Quietfire Design and can be found on the Silhouette Online store. Chickadee & Sing

I'm also using part of a quote stamp from Quietfire Design on the outside and the Illuminations & Italic Alphabet sets on the inside.


Side folded my white cardstock. Used a Memory Box stencil ("Brilliant") and lightly sprayed the back of it with Krylon Easy Tac, then carefully sponged Distress colors (Mustard Seed, Dried Marmalade & Worn Lipstick). Used a piece of scrap cardstock as a mask and sponged some of the orange around the edges.

I eCut the chickadee (it's 4"w) and then eCut it again as a blackout. The blackout I colored yellow and the cut out I colored with a black Zig Writer marker, then applied Versamark and clear embossed. Adhered the two elements together. Adhered to card.

Colored a piece of 90# watercolor paper on both sides using Dylusions dye ink sprays (Sunshine Yellow, Pomegranate Seed & Cherry Pie) and lots of water. Tilted the paper to merge and blend colors, then dried with a heat gun. Die cut with Die-Namics "Mini Royal Rose" die set. Used a bead making tool to coil the flower, then let it expand and glued it down. When the glue dried I adhered it to the card.

eCut the word sing, then again as a shadow. The top layer I sponged with the Distress pads, then with the Versamark pad and embossed with Sticky embossing powder, sprinkled with Distress "Star Dust" glitter and heat set again. The shadow layer I colored with the black marker, then adhered the two elements together and onto the card.

Stamped the rest of the "Sing" quote with Versafine Black Onyx.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday (10 tiny stamp set) with the black and cut it out like a speech bubble, sponged a bit of Distress around the edges and used a colored pencil to outline it, then adhered to card.

On the inside I stamped the "Illumination" border with the black, then the Italic capital "D" then the rest of the word all using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing. Used colored pencils (red & a yellow) and a Lyra Splendor Blender to decorate the letters. Wrote in the rest of the saying with a Zig Writer.

Used the scarp cardstock and the sponge to color the edges.
