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!
The words are so useful
That wee bird and the little splats and shine from the sequins
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
