These little birdhouses are so cute, and the tiny birds are even cuter! Today I’ve used the Garden Birdhouses stamp set to make a birthday card that has some sponge daubing and some ink blending 🙂
On top of a Cajun Craze card base is a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White cardstock.This piece was colored with Blending Brushes, using Balmy Blue ink on the top half and Granny Apple Green on the lower half.
Then the birdhouses were stamped with Crumb Cake ink, and the little birds were stamped with Cajun Craze and colored in with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.
Now, for the cute little leaves! They are from the Sparkle of the Season Bundle. This is where I used the Sponge Daubers. I sponged three different ink colors on each leaf stamp: Cajun Craze, Flirty Flamingo, and Crushed Curry. After I sponge on the colors, I “huff” on the stamp with my mouth. This moistens the ink so that it stamps perfectly! The leaves were then cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
