Hummingbird Beauty

This might be my favorite card I’ve created. Ever. I just love it!

I used the Picture Perfect stamp set, which is a multi-step set. This means you use several stamps and colors to create a very detailed and beautiful stamp. Usually the stamps are stamped from lightest to darkest, which is what I did here.

Picture Perfect - Stampin' Up
A Beautiful Hummingbird Card

I had to use my Misti stamping tool to get this lined up perfectly, because my eyes are old and I had trouble doing it cleanly by hand. The Misti is my friend, and I LOVE HER! The tool lets you perfectly place cling stamps so they end up exactly where you want them. Awesome.

Now on to the how-to of this card. On a Whisper White layer,  I used Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, and Night of Navy for the bird, and Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Real Red for the Roses. The leaves are Garden Green and Mossy Meadow.

So, to make this beauty I stamped the first hummingbird stamp (they’re marked 1 -4) in Pool Party. The second stamp is the bird’s neck, and I skipped that one. For stamp 3, I used Lost Lagoon. Stamp 4 was Night of Navy. Then I went in with a Real Red marker and colored the bird’s neck a bit.

For the roses, I stamped the first layer in Blushing Bride, the second in Calypso Coral, and the third in Real Red. I really love this color combo!

The leaves are Garden Green first, and Mossy Meadow second. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in Basic Gray. I think it’s so sweet.

All of the materials are available in my online store. I hope you’ll try this card. It’s a real winner.

Happy stamping,
