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.
Thanks for joining me today!!!!!
