Spring Bluebird

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a great weekend.

I’ve been quite active on the blogs in the last coupe of weeks sharing samples and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for your visits, comments and support especially as I know how busy you all are and how much you have got going on in your own lives.

This is another card made using CI’s stamp (Maria Kitano) Bluebird With Branch and Berries CI 505.


This card is very much along the lines as the card on the previous post but with the addition of the script CI 214 1893 Script.

Another easy card to make.

I stamped the image onto coated card stock using black Staz-On. I then used a liquid mask to cover the image. I stamped the script, again using Staz-On. I took the stamped card and swished it around in diluted Distress Ink and removed the mask. I coloured the image and mat and layered to finish the card.

Thank you for looking.

Take care,

Flo xx

      Hi Sandra, Funny enough Gerrina and I have said the same thing about these stamps. I think when the DT are saying that, it speaks volumes. They are absolutely fabulous stamps. They have gone into my top 10 of all time. I have enjoyed seeing your projects as well. That’s what is fun. I always looking forward to the first posts by everyone to see what they have made. Then I always think “wished I’d have thought of that”!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Take care, hugs Flo xx

    Flo, I’m trying to do a quick catch up. Such lovely cards you’ve presented this week. I like the red berries on one and now this softer version. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a red squirrel here – at least not since I’ve lived in Texas. We have the average grey squirrels, but they are the same in that they will find any and every which way to get access to those yummy seeds. They usually only eat the sunflower seeds in the batch. Your picture of the squirrel under the basket is darling. Thank you for sharing and I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend.

      Hi Marianne. Thank you so much. The first time I have ever seen a red squirrel is 12 months ago when we moved into the house. (12 months in the house!!! Where has the time gone) The garden was covered in snow and I saw the orange ball rolling around!! 🙂 Hope your week is going well.
      Hugs Flo xx

    I have been looking at all your beautiful bird cards on CI Flo and over the last weeks you have posting a lot, so as it’s been far longer than it should be since I visited I looked back to leave one or two comments, but I notice that it says ‘comments closed’, so do you have a time limit on leaving comments, if so I must bear this in mind. I always love what you do over at CI, you make such eye catching designs, and those birds are definitely on my wish list. x

      Hi Pat. Great to hear from you. Thank you for your lovely comments. When I post a lot of DT projects on a daily basis, like these few weeks, I set the comments to go off after 15 days. When everything goes back to normal I turn them back on. It’s just something I have always done. They are lovely, lovely stamps. Take care, Flo xx
