The Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp set (which also has matching Thin Cut dies) is the sweetest little bird stamp set & it has very versatile sentiments, so I thought this would b a perfect product to showcase what you can create with it.
My first idea was to used the stitched rectangle frame & have the the bird with the pine tree leaves sitting in the corner. I added an embellishment cluster at the top. There is no sentiment as I haven’t decided what I use this card for yet but I like how it turned out.
My next idea I thought the bird needed a house, thus this idea of a birdhouse came about
This next idea I wanted to create a winter scene & used a bit of mixed media to complete this idea. I used direct to paper ink using a mixture of blue inks, stamped over with embossing ink & embossed with White Super Fine Embossing Powder to create snow & added tree trunks that were cut from Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection, with added colour using Espresso ink & made a snow bank with torn paper covered with Opaque Matte Texture Paste. I loved how this all turned out & how the bird sits in well with this winter scene.
My final idea I wanted to try out the Card Front Spinner Thin Cut die with this stamp set. I kept the design simple as the interactivity is the main act on this card. The words are from the Rainbow Wishes stamp set & the background paper from the Spruced Up Paper Packet collection.
I hope you like my ideas using the Spruced Up – Cardmaking Stamp Set and that I have given you lots of ideas to go & create with it.
Below is a couple of ideas from the Close To My Heart Art Department.
So this sweet idea was shared over on my Terrific Treats – CTMH Technique Blog Hop post. I thought the bird made the sweetest addition to this box base bag.
