Birds on a Limb


While designing today’s card, I kept this week’s CAS(E) this sketch in my mind.

I was thrilled to discover today that my card from last week’s challenge was chosen as a winner! Here it is, in case you missed it.

Woodlands Birds


I began today’s card by stamping the birds in Soft Suede Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, fussy cutting the image, and coloring with Stampin’ Blends. These are the colors I used: Light and Dark Soft Suede, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Calypso Coral, and Dark Cajun Craze. The Cajun Craze was for the beaks.


After this, I pondered what to use for their background, and it struck me that I hadn’t used the Buffalo Check Stamp for a while. So, I inked it up with Sahara Sand, stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut it with the second largest Rectangles Stitched Die.

It was a keeper, and I glued it to a Sahara Sand card base. Oh, prior to gluing, I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink, Organdy Stripe Ribbon around it.

TIP: I use Scotch Tape to attach ribbon to the back. This makes for easy testing and removal, which I often do!


Finally, the sentiment, “Best Wishes from all of us,” something the row of birds wanted to say. It’s from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Rectangles Stitched Die.

After gluing everything in place, I added the Petal Pink Frosted Flower. What a sweet embellishment! It comes in three colors, which you can see in my Product List below.
