Cardinal Brings Cheer


This little bird is from the Painted Glass bundle, and I turned her into a cardinal with Stampin’ Blends. I stamped her in Black ink, colored in with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler for feathers, and a bronze beak. She was easy to cut with her die that’s in the bundle.

Also in the bundle is the die I used for the window, which is cut from Crumb Cake cardstock. TIP: Use teeny tiny spots of Tombow Liquid Glue for adhering.


The cardinal wanted to bring cheer to someone in the house, and found just the right words in the Merry Christmas to All bundle. “Merry” is cut with a die from Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and “Christmas” is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. A label die from the same bundle cut a perfect window sill for the cardinal to perch.


The Whisper White house was made with the Simple Stripes embossing folder, which I adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base. There’s a “stripes” theme going on over at Festive Friday, so I’m joining in this week’s challenge.


The two sprigs of Garden Green pine were cut with a die from the Night Owl die set. I added some Linen Thread, decorated the envelope flap, and called it complete.

My supply list is below, but I see I forgot two items; the Cherry Cobbler ink pad, and the Bronze Stampin’ Blend. Oh, and the medium envelope and Under the Mistletoe DSP.

Have a wonderful day!
