Bird with a Heart ~ Video

The challenge last week at StampNation was to create a card that makes you think of Spring.  Before moving to WA the things that made me think of Spring were Easter, pastels, flowers and green everywhere.  Now that I live up here, Spring comes much later.  The birds are the first sign of Spring for me now.  So, I made a card with birds.


The card base is River Rock cardstock.  I embossed the bottom with the Needlepoint embossing folder.  The leaves were punched out using SU Bird Punch in Lucky Limeade and Pear Pizazz cardstock.   I attached them with my Tombow Mono Multi glue.


The heart feathered bird was fun to make.  It's hard for me to explain so I filmed a video for you. ;)  One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that I sponged the birds using Baja Breeze ink. 

***Note*** If you are viewing this post in your email or blog reader you may need to go to my blog to view the video.  Click on the post title "Bird with a Heart" above and it should take you to this post.


Now I challenge you!  What reminds you of Spring?  Make a Spring card using anything that makes you think of this delightful season.


Creative Blessings,
