Guest Designer: Laurel Beard

Hey there everyone! Laurel Beard here today! I wanted to share this card I created using the Hello Hummingbird stamp set. Have you seen the stamp set? It’s awesome! There are a ton of layers you can add to really make this bird life like. Now, I am not the best when it comes to layering stamps! I admit it! I will even tell you I called up Effie herself to get her to walk me thru stamping it for the first time (she has since posted a video showing the steps) because, well – let’s face it! I need help! HAHAHAHA! But once I stamped it out I was like DOH! Makes perfect sense!!!! She didn’t leave out any layers! Even the little throat has a layer!

When I saw the design team use this set, I loved that some of them mixed colors to create a gorgeous colorful bird so I wanted to do the same thing. I used various colors from the ink line for the bird: Crystal Pewter, Hot Tourmaline, Cobalt Breeze, Soft Garnet and Soft Amethyst.  The bird is just awesome so I wanted to keep the rest of the card pretty simple.  The sentiment was heat embossed with black embossing powder so it would pop against the background.
