Happiness Always - card using Bird House stamp set

Did you see my story on Instagram the other day with black and white image of card? I hope you did. Today is the reveal of that card :)

Yes, it's a colorful, vibrant card and I have used several different techniques in this one. Read on :)

Key Ingredients:

  1. Bird House stamp set (on | on

  2. Maker Forte Grateful to You stamp set designed by me (for the sentiment)

  3. Coloring medium - watercolors or others as you like

  4. Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink


  1. Use MS PowerPoint to plan, size and print images. For the birds I used same image, just sized them differently and flipped one of them horizontally.

  2. Color in all the images - I used Altenew watercolors for the bird house and some Gansai Tambi ones for the blue bird. For the yellow bird, I used Copics, because - why not? :) Well, really because I like the coloring of my yellow Copics.

  3. Add details with a black fine liner pen and flower centers with a gold paint pen.

  4. Fussy cut or use an electronic cutting machine like Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the bid house.

  5. On a landscape A2 cardbase add clouds with the Clouds Slimline stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

  6. Adhere the bird house with flat adhesive and birds with foam tape.

  7. At last use MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Grateful to You stamp set and call it done.
