The Two Step Bird Extra Large punch (#117191) is one of my favorite punches! It also coordinates with the Hostess level 1 clear stamp set Punch Potpourri which is how I was able to give this adorable little bird it's decorative design of whisper white swirls.
Springtime Vintage DSP, Baja Breeze, and Old Olive are the coordinating colors.
Used the same punch to make "branches out of Old Olive and Pear Pizzaz"
The "nest" was tricky. Punch out a small oval (#119863) using Crumb Cake, take Tombo Multipurpose liquid glue (#110755) and some pieces of Hemp Twine that you have wet and roughed up a bit and glue them to the small oval punch. The "egg" is the bird's wing of the punch that I had inked and situated so that it is oval and just peeking slightly out from underneath the Bird.
The Two layers are 4 X 4 and Tie 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon (#114319) around the whole front face of the card.
Soft Suede, Pretty In Pink, Wild Wasabi, and Very Vanilla is the color combo that I used for this card.
The new and fun Tulip embossing folder for the Big Shot made a beautiful border.
Be My Valentine from the new Occasions mini was inked in Pink Pirouette and using a blender Pen I gave the image some low lights in Rose Red. Note: After you ink the stamp with Pink Pirouette take a Q-tip and spray it with stamp cleaner then use your Rose Red marker to color Be My Valentine back in.
Again using the Punch Potpourri clear stamp set, stamp the Boho Blossoms in the color combo mentioned above and punch them out with the coordinating punch, Boho Blossoms Extra- Large #119858. Basic Pearls gives them a darling and 3-d center.
Scrunching ribbon is a cinch! Take a piece of ribbon and on either end and pick out one piece of thread that will run down the middle long ways. When you pull on it you will see it will start to "scrunch". Adjust it to your liking. Put a Piece of sticky Strip where you would like to adhere the ribbon and stick it down. We will be learning this in our next class!
