Cardinal Friends

Hi there!! Happy hump day!! Brenda here with you today!! I hope you are having a great week!! I was away last week, so I’m trying to get caught up…whew!!!

I absolutely adore the Cardinal Friends set & couldn’t wait to ink it up and get coloring!! Hopefully, you  have some of the new Fall Release in your hot little hands!

I began by stamping the cardinal, large branch and several of the holly branches from the Cardinal Friends stamp set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. I used Copic markers to color all of the images before cutting them out with the Coordinating Dies. I chose a blue cardstock for my background and splattered white paint onto it. The two largest dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle (Lg) Dies were used to cut a frame from white cardstock. Once the paint splatters were dry on the blue background, I stamped the sentiment, also from Cardinal Friends, with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white. Next, I adhered the frame, large branch and cardinal with dimensional adhesive. I adhered the holly branches around my cardinal, directly to the background panel. Lastly, I added some Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall to the holly berries.

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!
