Card Making with the Spring Bird – Crocus

Hi everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a card made using Chocolate Baroque’s new Spring Bird – Crocus rubber stamps.  Love these stamps.  I think this little bird could be one of my all time favourite stamps.

When I was little I can remember we had a little privet hedge around the garden and every year my Dad would trim the hedge and there would be an old tea pot sitting there, within the branches, that we had placed for the wrens to nest in.  Every year I would clean it out and put it back.  Isn’t it funny how some memories stay with you all your life.

I stamped the little bird image, colored it in and fussy cut around it.
The card is made up as seen with foam pads to attach the image and embellishments.

Thank you for looking.

Have a lovely weekend
Happy Stamping

  1. Love the combination of the dies and the stamps! I am neglecting my dies, find it hard to combine with stamping as it usually means that for combining them I have to stamp the image and then cut it out – I don’t really enjoy fussy cutting, takes up too much time, I rather play with ink… Love that teapot idea! We got a big hedge, I’ll keep an eye out for old teapots at fleamarkerts now!

  2. What a lovely story about the wrens, Flo … and such a wonderful card! Actually, it’s more like a work of art … it’s so detailed and so beautifully coloured! Hope you get some sunshine between the much needed rain! Anita 🙂
