Hi stampers! What do you think of this new stamp set? Isn’t is so darn cute? I thought it would make a fun alternative to standard Father’s Day cards! This is a new host stamp set that will be available in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. You can get this or any of the hostess sets by having a party, or placing a qualifying order in my online store. I can provide more details if you would like, just send me a note at Rachthestamper@gmail.com .
I used several different ink colors and a blender pen to color in the birds. I gave one a much more “DAD” colored feel, and the other I made a daughter 🙂 You can change out any of the colors, you could also use the watercolor pencils instead and go over with the blender pens to smooth out the color. You could also use Stampin’ Write markers to fill it in too!
I added a “nest” I made from the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. I snipped out the threads that connect them, loosened them up and the adhered them with TomBow liquid glue so I was able to place it just where I wanted it. I then added some of the Kraft Rope Trim to give it a bottom. The rope trim is in the Clearance Rack by the way and it is REALLY on sale! So…..ya might wanna hurry 😀
I filled in the leaves on the branches with two different colors of marker: I used Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky, and I think they turned out so pretty!
I will try to get a little mini video done for how I made the NEST and masked the birds to add the branches behind them very soon!
Hope you enjoyed this out of the box style card, please let me know what you think!
