Bird on a Branch......

It was Janette's Workshop last night - Big Wave :-) Kellie liked the look of the cards in the Mini Catalogue which were made with the Bird on a Branch stamp set, so thats what we did for the Make and Take. The base card is Sage Shadow and the paper is the Day and Night paper pack - Delish! You get two sheets of printed Acetate with black dots. Stock up on this as this paper won't be available after the 30th September.

The paper layer is 5cm x 10cm. The white layer for stamping is 9cm x 6cm and the black layer is 9.5cm x 6.5cm.
First stamp the branch in the middle of the white layer but going off the edge in Black Stazon. Stamp the bird in Black stazon sitting on the branch. Stamp the flowers in Sage Shadow. You can use the Stamp a ma jig to do this and the flowers and bird will be perfect! Or just eye ball it! and it will still look great.
Tip: I found that by stamping the branch going the way in the above card, the flowers match up to the branch if you stamp them with the word Stampin up is running along the bottom of the sticker on the front of the stamp!
If you stamp the branch coming off the left hand side of the paper or like in the top card, You need to turn the flower stamp up side down so that the sticker has the word stampin up on the top and then the flowers will line up with the branch.
Hope that makes sense.
Once you have stamped the flowers, stamp all over the splatter image in sage shadow. Then you can add the sentiment in Black stazon. Pop up the layers with 3D foam pads and add to the middle of the card.
We added an insert which was decorated with the sweet serenity wheel that co-ordinates with the Bird on a Branch stamp set.
Kellie did her card in Summer Sun and it looked stunning. I will have a play with that colour today.
Hope you all have a good day,
Thanks for looking,
