‘Hope & Dream’ May 2021 Release Instagram hop and prizes to be won!

Hi everyone, we are excited to bring you another Instagram Hop + Giveaway today for our latest release “Sending Smiles” :) If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :)

For my stop, I created this slimline card. Our stamp set “Bird House” this month includes not only the larger image with the whole scene (birdhouse + flowers + the bird), but also each image individually. I used the individual elements to create my card. Also when I created my card for the Mental Health Awareness Instagram hop, I had printed the background Mandala twice on dark blue cardstock. I used the other one for today’s card.

Key Ingredients:

  1. Bird house stamp set (on | on

  2. Mandala stamp set (on | on

  3. Spellbinders Hemstitch Slimline Etched Dies


  1. Use PowerPoint to size and print the Mandala on dark blue cardstock.

  2. Similarly print the images from Bird House stamp set and a sentiment on Canson Multi Media paper.

  3. Watercolor using Inktense pencils and Gansai Tambi watercolors.

  4. Fussy cut them out or use an electronic cutter like Brother ScanNCut. Cut the sentiment using a die or fussy cut. I used an old banner die from my stash.

  5. Assemble the card on a cardbase and add chunky glitter for flower centers + a few gold gems (all linked below).

Easy-peasy :)
