Christmas Red Bird


I loved this Hero Arts stamp from the first time I saw it.  I mean, how cute is that little bird?  I thought it would go well with this week's Inkspirations colours so I finally inked it up.  I fussy cut the bird from Cherry Cobbler paper and put some Glossy Accents on him for some shine.  I also added some Stickles snow to the background which you can kind of see in the picture.  
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:   (Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler) Stampin' Up, (Cream) Craft Supply

Stamps:  (Image & Sentiment from Merriest Christmas Wishes set) Hero Arts
Ink:  (Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler) Stampin' Up

Dies:  (Nestabilities Labels 3) Spellbinders

Imression Plate:  (Sunshine) PTI
Other:  (Frosted Lace Stickles) Ranger, Glossy Accents

Gorgeous card Jen! The sweet little birdie looks fabulous in his sparkly scene & the red Nestie frame is striking. :)

Oh, I am loving that starry/snowy background!!! Such a classy way to add some sparkly. Love the impression plate you used, too, and how classy *that* looks--I only think to use it on "funky" cards.

Gah, the more I look at this card the more I love it!

I keep eyeing this stamp, and your card might push me over the edge. I *love* how you made the background with the Stickles. So pretty!

Lindsey said...

This is so, so gorgeous. One of those cards that looks deceptively simple. And how you managed to photograph the sparkle? Genius. I love the red frame, and the glossy cardinal, and the SPARKLE! (Caw, caw...me loves some shiny stuff :P)
