Hello – Garden Birdhouses

It’s Sunday!  And another challenge deadline has snuck up on me…so, indulge me.

Working with the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Sketch (#568), the Colors suggested by Creative Colour Challenges (#50) and picking up two elements from the Just Add Ink (#617) Choose Two Challenge.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) Early Espresso cardstock.
  • Center Panel: (2¾” x 4) Starry Sky Gingham patterned paper from the 2022/2024 In-Color Collection Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The Little Floral Stems from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set were stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder across the lower portion of the panel.
  • Accent Mat: (2⅞” x 4⅛”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Side Tabs and Flag: Flirty Flamingo cardstock scraps.
    • Three (¾”) small stitched Circles and the (3⅜” x 1”) stitched Banner were die-cut using dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
    • The three Circles were tucked behind the Center Panel.
    • The edge of the Banner was trimmed and added across the Center Panel.
  • Sentiment Circle: Early Espresso cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, hello, from the same stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and also heat-set with White Embossing Powder
    • The sentiment was die-cut with another of the stitched circle dies (1⅝”) from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.

All of the elements were assembled and adhered to the card base.  The sentiment circle was popped up with Dimensionals.

A challenging combination of colors and I opted to feature the Early Espresso and pop it up with the Flirty Flamingo.  The patterned paper color, Starry Sky, acts as a nice foil for the little white flowers for friendly Hello card.

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

  1. I love this card. The colors and sketch really go well together, but I think that I love the floral stamps peeking out from behind the pink strip of paper and the sentiment. Thank you for joining us for this challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday and look forward to seeing you again soon!

  2. A lovely idea to emboss over the designer paper with the pretty floral image. The bold hello works really well too. Thanks for playing along with our Choose Two challenge at Just Add Ink.
