I’ve been thinking about the Global Design Project sketch since Monday, and now it’s Saturday night. My husband is at a Pares game with some friends, so I’ve had time to play. Here is the sketch I’ve been pondering:

I needed to decide what my three objects would be and chose the precious, little bird from the Painted Glass stamp set. I stamped three birds on Whisper White cardstock, and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. For the sake of time, I didn’t list the colors I used, but all of the Stampin’ Blends are now available at my store. Yay!

Graceful Glass Birds


The birds are resting on a branch from the Petals & More die set.  It was cut from Soft Sea Foam cardstock, making a nice resting place for the birds. Did you notice they landed in a “square-like” fashion, mimicking the sketch?

I was anxious to use the new Stitched Seasons dies, and determined to work that into the design somehow. I used the largest die in the set to cut a frame from Soft Sea Foam cardstock, matching the branch. This fabulous die set is available to demonstrators in July, and will be available to everyone in August. You can check it out in my product list below.

My favorite, little sign from the At Home set is tied to the branch, enabling the birds to say “hello.” I embossed the Whisper White cardstock layer with the Subtle embossing folder after stamping the string in Basic Black ink.

I placed the birds and sign on Mini-Dimensionals, and that’s all there was to it. Now, off to post this to meet the deadline at the Global Design Project challenge.
