Hello friends! It’s release day over at Pretty Pink Posh and we are celebrating with a blog hop! This new release has a little bit for everyone and I am so excited to share what I have been working on with you all this month! But for today, I decided to make a pretty card filled with hummingbirds that combines the old with the new! Make sure to read on after my card for information on how to enter to win some prizes!
When I was deciding what to create for the hop, the cute little hummingbird from Spring Circles immediately caught my eye. The hummingbird from Hummingbird Thanks has always been a favorite, so I decided to combine the old hummingbird with the new on one card! I started by repeatedly stamping the hummingbirds from Hummingbird Thanks onto white cardstock with VersaMark ink. I embossed them with white, then blended Distress Oxides in Kitsch Flamingo, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio for a pretty background. After wiping the excess ink off the embossed images, I made fine splatters over the inking for a bit of extra interest.
I stamped the hummingbird circle from Spring Circles in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink on white cardstock and colored with Copics to match my ink blended background. I cut it out using the matching die, then cut the pretty tag shape that is part of the Spring Circles dies from more white cardstock. I used the new Mini Polka Dots stencil with Lawn Fawn Manatee ink to add a bit of interest to the tag, then added my Copic colored circle to the top of it with foam tape before adding the whole tag to the card. I stamped the “you are” from the new Flower Bouquets set in black, then die cut the “special” from the You Are Special Script dies three times from black cardstock to finish the sentiment. For a little something extra, I scattered a few Pearl White jewels around for sparkle.
