I loved this stamp, like you have not heard that before. So when I sat down to make a card, this stamp was the focal point. As always I like layers, so I used my Cuttlebug to emboss Birds and Swirls on the aqua cardstock, I used my Spellbinders Large Labels Nestabilities to die-cut the watercolour paper for the birds stamp. I coloured the birds with a mix of my watercolour pencils and my atyou Spica markers to give them a little sparkle. I wanted to use a ribbon slide but the brown ribbon was not quite wide enough so I added the sheer pink. The stamped Hello phrase is raised on pop-dots.

Supplies: Cream, and aqua cardstock, metallic brown designer paper, Making Memories Noteworthy Audrey – Designer paper, Inkadinkado-Birds and Birdhouses, Inkadinkado-Hello, misc ribbon slide, Offray brown ribbon, Modern@home pink ribbon.


  1. You nailed this one PERFECTLY!

    The colors complement one another nicely and give this a true spring feel. The elements are placed nicely to draw the eye around.

    I enjoyed watching you build this one - I'm getting a true appreciation of what goes into each one of your pretty creations.

    Thx for sharing!
