Free As A Bird

Keeping up with my “work”.  “Work” is subjective and mine includes the pleasure of crafting, hanging out in the Studio and generally making a mess…that is until I put everything back in it’s place.

So two more combined challenges:  Try Stampin’ On Tuesday (#518) for the sketch and Colour INKspiration (#105) for the color scheme.

Here is the result:



  • Right Block Panel: (4⅜” x 4”) Very Vanilla cardstock.  The Birds image from the Free As A Bird stamp set was stamped with Sahara Sand ink onto the panel.  Using Mango Melody, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Ivory, Bronze and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, I colored the scene.  Details were added with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  The image was then die-cut from the center of the panel with one of the Scalloped Edge Rectangle (4⅛” x 2⅞”) dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  The remaining frame of the panel was then dry-embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Side Panel: (⅞” x 4”) Very Vanilla cardstock.  The panel was also dry-embossed with the same Embossing Folder and a string bow was added using the retired Old Olive Linen Twine that I still have in my stash.
  • Sentiment Label: (1⅞” x ¾”) Fresh Freesia cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, The world needs…, from the same stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.  The sentiment was then die-cut with the small label die from the Harvest Dies set.
  •  Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock for a tone-on-tone look. 

Another soft and subtle card.  The finished card is giving me serious Easter vibes with the use of these colors.  With that said, I want you to know that all of you “Peeps” are necessary to me and my little world!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
