Another month of Swiss Pixie adorable-ness! This is beautiful Rainy Day Birgitta… sweet, sweet, sweet… keeping dry under her leaf umbrella! Birgitta is illustrated by Christine Wooden for her stamp line CC Designs. I stamped Birgitta with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Promarkers.
I’m sure you’re dying to know about the new dies I’m showing today!!! Well… I’m dying to tell YOU! Aren’t they awesome?!!! Awhile back Christine asked the Design Team gals on our forum what ideas we had for dies! Guess what I asked for… hehe.. yep… a flower border! I couldn’t be happier! It’s totally charming!
The Grass border is separate from the Flower border and then there is the Fence… purely fun! I will make a video on how I shaped it for dimension. Easy, I promise and the video will be short! I stamped the fence with a woodgrain stamp… so cool and then inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink and the ink blending tool. I added some copic colored grass to the grass border die cut and some copic pink to the flowers in the flower border… I did do some paper piecing to the dies also… yep… true love… I ❤ these dies!
The Happy Spring Words and Hello sentiments are from a new for this month AmyR Stamps sentiment set called So Wordy…. cool name even and fun fonts too! The flowers I used in the word border are from the NEW Watering Can Logos set we’ll be showing tomorrow… I know… I got a head… just a bit! hehe I used my trusty ‘ole stamp a ma jig to do the word/flower border… no pattern paper was harmed in making of this card! Oh, there are two flower stamps…one solid and one outline… cool… more stamping!
The die cut clouds are CC Designs Cutters cloud dies. I also cut one of the top one to use as a mask to make a cloud background. Following Tracy’s tutorial on the ATS blog, HERE… only I reversed it… used blue paper and white distress stain! I really liked it when I was done too… there is always that chance, it’ll be a bomb ‘ya know… so happy when it isn’t! hehe Always fun to try something different anyway!
