Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop

Today is the start of STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop!

I recently ordered Shirley's (Bees Knees) STAMPlorations "Birds of Paradise" Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.  Here is a card I posted to my blog using the stamps and dies.

I am adding this card to the Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop.  It is a birthday card for our soon to be 8 year old grandson.

This was a fun and easy card to make using this fun birds.   I did not die cut the birds this time.  I did Die Cut my sentiment with my SU Word Bubble Die and used my CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die to die cut the card front.

First I smooshed my card front with T. H. Distress Inks: Scattered Straw and Mermaid Lagoon.  I then stamped my birds using Archival Black Ink and my MISTI.  Next added Washi tapes and attached my layer to SU Whisper White thick CS and popped up my sentiment.  Easy, Peasy.

Enjoy and hope you get to play along with Stamplorations Blog Hop.   Hugs...
