{Spotlight Project} Monica and For The Birds #1

[Note: This month and next, we have several STAMPlorations girls guest designing and joining the regular Spotlight Project girls and sharing more awesome step-by-step projects that feature our 5x7 stamp club sets. We hope you get even more inspired!]

Hi everyone, it's Monica from Taylormadecards4u and I am here today to share with you a card I created using a great spring stamp set called For the Birds. This set is awesome and has some great sentiments that come with the set. There is also a matching die set!

I started with some vintage looking paper and it also had a bird theme.

I cut the paper down using a stitched die. I also die cut the bird from the die set out of another piece of paper from the same set that had a music theme.

My idea was to create a shadow background. I stamped the bird using one of the stamps from the set using black archival ink.

I then added the die cut bird using foam tape. The bird was a little off center as I wanted the black stamped image to show.

I also stamped a sentiment using one of the sentiment stamps from the set. This one seemed perfect since the bird did have musical notes.

Finally, I matted the finished design onto some black card stock and adhered it to the base of my card. Don't forget to use STAMPGIRLMONICA to get 20% off over at STAMPlorations.


We love hearing from fellow crafters. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
