For this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge I used the lovely Soaring Swallows bundle and Flowering Fields DSP to create my card. The Soaring Swallows bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog is a beautiful and elegant stamp set that includes versatile sentiments with fabulous coordinating dies.
Start with a Thick Basic White cs card base. Cut a Thick Basic White cs panel layer and Flowering Fields DSP panel. Dry emboss the Thick Basic White cs panel with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folders. Glue the panels together and then to the card base.
Cut a Basic White cs strip and a Pool Party cs sentiment strip. Use paper snips to angle the left sides of the strips with paper snips. Stamp the sentiment from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Soft Succulent ink on the Pool Party cs sentiment strip. Use Stampin’ Seal to add the Basic White cs strip to the top edge of the Pool Party cs sentiment strip and then use more Stampin’ Seal to add the strips to the center of the card front.
Stamp the outline of the bird images (four birds two of each) in Soft Succulent ink and stamp the bird fill image in 2nd generation (stamped off) Pool Party ink from the Soaring Swallows stamp set on Thick Basic White cs. Die cut out the birds with the Swallow dies. Add Petal Pink ink to the birds with a Blender Pen. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add three birds to the card front overlapping the sentiment strips. Add Wink of Stella to the birds and to the clouds on the DSP for extra sparkle. Add a small dot of Shimmery Crystal Effects to the birds’ eyes for texture. Add Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.
Add a Thick Basic White cs inside panel for extra stability and to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in Soft Succulent ink and add a strip of DSP to the inside & back of the card to pull the theme through. I also glued the last bird to the bottom right of the inside panel.
