Sharing the Love Day #1 ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well. I managed to do a little crafting over the weekend, especially for some challenges, so I have several creations to share with you this week and here is my first one …
I said the last time I used this stamp I adore it and I think the versatility of it is fabulous!
Those cute little birds and all those great words!
A final look

I was inspired by the second of Shay’s cards, seen her. I really recommend you go take a look especially if you love your dies. The way that Shay has used a large background die is gorgeous, unusual and inspiring. I will be die cutting some of my dies to see how they look behind vellum or parchment
I don’t have a large background die, currently, so I got my W&W Happy die and die cut it three times onto a piece of A6 card. I used a snippet of PP to back the die cut card then I attached a snippet parchment on top of that. I glued my panel onto an A6 card. I stamped the words from the W&W stamp set onto snippets of white card and glued them onto the layered panel. I stamped the bird onto two snippets and coloured them with my Spectrum Noir ATs. I splattered some ink onto the layered panel; I am obsessed with doing that right now. I fussy cut the birds out and attached them onto the layered panel; I added a little sparkle with my Sakura pens and added several sequins to embellish my card.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
