Tweet Chirp by Alison Hall


Hello Crafters! I have a couple of cute birdie cards to share with you this week. I hope you like them.








Here's what I used...


Dina Wakley Cling Mount Stamp Sets - Scribbly Birds, Primitive Icons


Here's what I did...


If you're like me, and you have a boxful of backgrounds and Gelli Plate prints, it's very easy to make quick and easy cards, with just a couple of contrasting backgrounds, and some stamps.

For the background of my first card, I'd applied Distress inks direct to a stencil, spritzed with water, then laid it face down onto white card. Then I took a secondary print, and this is what I've used here. 

Then using the Primitive Icons hearts border, I stamped a little row of hearts. I then stamped Dina's scribbly bird, perched on the hearts. I stamped the bird again, onto a Gelli Plate print, cut out his body, then adhered him on top of the bird on the background.

I popped some washi tape below the hearts, stamped the quotes, added a little black gem to the bird's eye, then finished off by matting onto black card and a white card blank. Simples!

Here's another card I made in the same way, with a different birdie and border, and Gelli Plate prints...






Have a wonderful, creative day!
