Hi! I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend! I have a Mother’s Day card I would like to share with you. It’s for our challenge at SSCC. This challenge we are using a sketch that our very own design team member Sheri has designed. I just love sketches! They really help me when I’m in a rut! Now if I could just figure out a quicker way on choosing which papers that I want to use I would be set lol!
I’ve really been obsessed with birds lately! I hope you are not getting tired of seeing them! I used the 50 States cartridge for this one. I love this cartridge but I do wish the layering was a little different. I cut this out three different times and did some cutting so I could get the tummy to stand out a little more. I also used my copic markers to add some shading. The bird nest is from Create a Critter and I got the eggs off of the From My Kitchen cartridge. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the branches. I know I’ve said this before but I’ve just got to say it again I LOVE MY GRAND CALIBUR!!! It just makes using your spellbinders dies so much easier! I used the Spellbinders dies Lacy Squares, large squares, scallop circle, classic circle and labels #8 along with the matching Spellbinders stamps Lacey circles and Label Accents. Here is another picture of my card from the side.
And here is a close up of my bird. You can see his eye a little better in this one and that I’ve added some white specks to the eggs with my white jelly roll pen:)
Thanks for looking and also for stopping by to visit! Have a wonderful day!
