Hummingbird Love

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.
Today I have a beautiful card to share with you using some 
sweet Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies.
For my card I used the 
and the Love Shaker Die.

I started with a square card base made from white card stock
measuring 4" x 4". I then took the largest die from the Kat Scrappiness
Stitched Scalloped Square Dies and cut a panel out with white card stock.
The next step was to use the PPP Love Shaker Die and place it in the center
of the scalloped square die and run it through my Vagabond.
I also used the Love Shaker Die and cut out 4 more pieces
in white card stock so that I could layer those die cuts on top of each other.

Once I glued them all together I had a thick die cut
that was as thick as a chipboard element.
I took some watercolor paper and loosely painted some
Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.
I trimmed down my watercolor panel to a heart shape to fit behind the 
Love Shaker panel. While I had my watercolor paper and inks
out, I stamped 2 hummingbirds in Gina K Amalgam ink 
and watercolored them with the same 2 distress inks from above.

After I glued my scalloped square on to my card base, I took 
my Love Shaker element with the watercolored piece behind it 
and glued it down to the base as well.
The hummingbirds were mounted with foam tape to the top
and bottom corners of the card.
To finish off the card I used PPP Sparkling Clear Jewels
to add some sparkle and shine.
For the last step I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pens
to add some glimmer to the hummingbirds and love die cut.

It's hard to catch the glimmer in a photograph but in real life
this card really does sparkle and shine!

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed
