Flight of a Humming Bird

This is the second card for my upcoming "Emboss Resist" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three different cards in this class. To see the first card please click here, I am still working on the card number three. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, May 14th from 11-2pm
Thursday, May 14th from 4:30-7:30 pm
Saturday, May 30th from 12-3pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class.

Since this is a technique class, the Class Kits will not be available.

This card measures 6" x 6"..

Instead of stamping images on the plain cardstock, this time I stamped them on the designer paper instead. This gives an instant background and creates a "collage" type of feel. This paper is from Basic Grey and is the same paper that I have used to make this card, can you believe it?

The Humming Bird stamp is by Inkadinkado, 92647-X. The image was stamped and embossed, and then I used my new favorite medium, Smooch, to color in the bird. The Smooch gives the images nice shine with the pearl accent. I used Smooch in Green Apple and Pumpkin colors.

Flower stamp is by Penny Black called Leopard's Bane, 3873F. The flowers were stamped and embossed. I added gold microbeads in the centers of the flowers.

The main layer was sponged with yellow and orange inks to give it some depth.

The nice accents on the large layer are from the same stamp set that I have used to make this card, it is by Hampton Arts and is called Blooming Memories.

The filigree corners are the Cuttlebug die cuts.

All of the supplies used to design this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you don't live in the area, please call the store during the business hours at 408-736-9151 to place your order.
