ID: MC Oct/15 - Sparrow - Sing As If - HB card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: October 17, 2015

Love this newest stamp I got... (Stacy Stamps "Chipping Sparrow")

I used a sentiment stamp on the inside and broke up the rubber stamp quote by Quietfire Design  

 ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set ); ("The Woods Would Be Very Silent" 5pce set)



I scored and folded my white cardstock. 

Cut a slightly smaller piece of white cardstock, inked the folder (ECD "Bouquet") with Versamark, ran through my machine and then embossed using white embossing powder. Hit the high points using Distress pads "Scattered Straw" and "Wild Honey". Adhered to front.

Adhered a piece of orange/white polka dotted ribbon, then a piece of the pearl ribbon.

I had created an eCut file of the sparrow stamp, cut with my electronic cutter and stamped using Versafine Black Onyx, colored with Prsima colored pencils and Gamsol to blend. Adhered to card front using 3D foam tape. Added an amber rhinestone eye.

Stamped the "sing" with the black, clear embossed, die cut with Spellbinders oval die set and sponged the edges with the yellow and honey. Adhered with 3D foam tape.

Inside Left (pic below): Stamped the dogwood branch (Magenta "Botanicals") using the black. Colored with the Prisma pencils and the Gamsol.

Stamped the rest of the quote with the black, clear embossed, trimmed down and adhered to inside.

Sponged some straw around the edges.


Inside Right: Stamped the dogwood branch (Petaluma "Dogwood Botanical") using the black, clear embossed and colored with the Prisma pencils and Gamsol.

Stamped the sentiment with the black, clear embossed.

Sponged the straw around the edges.
