Snowbird

PP524 – A Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Claire

This card is a CASE of something Angie did recently. Thanks for the inspiration Angie, I love your original card and couldn’t resist using it as jump off point for my own. I used several stamp sets to create this card. As the challenge is about snow I remembered I had an older set from GKD that was designed for frames and it had a curved snowflake stamp. I used this to create the circle of snowflakes in tumbled glass ink. From another older set from GKD I took the smaller tree stamp and after stamping off the forest moss on a piece of scrap I stamped the trees into the background. Then I took one of my new Divinity Designs stamp sets and used one of the birds to stamp onto a scrap piece of CS which I then coloured with a combo of Sakura Glaze pens and some Inktense pencils. Using the matching die I cut him along with two blanks so I could glue them together for some definition. He was glued to the card front against the trees. From the same stamp set I took the snowbird word, stamped in white on the black and heat embossed in more white. From another Divinity Design set I took the final sentiment and stamped directly on card front using Hickory smoke ink. I used one sequin snowflake to cover up a stamping booboo. All in all I’m happy with how this card turned out.

  1. This made me laugh as “snow bird” has a totally different connotation here in Arizona. Especially when I grew up and the family business was r.v. parts and repair. I love your bird in it’s warm hat and scarf. You show off your snow beautifully.

  2. This is such a darling card! I love the circle of snowflakes and your cute little bird. He looks rather chilly and not fond of winter. Lov the CAS scene you created too. Thanks for being with us at The Paper Players.
