Sometimes you need some inspiration to give you an excuse to get a stamp set besides the fact that it is cute – so why not see some creative uses of the stamp set.
I love this Sweet Hummingbird stamp set and & I think you will love all 4 unique ways I have used this stamp set . And I think I found enough extra ideas to make sure you get the most use out of it.
My first idea was to create this Screen Panel Card.
I created the Screen Panel in design space, using Artbooking & basic shapes & cut out the medium stitched rectangles & sponged them with Almond Ink. & stamped the designs onto them & coloured with watercolour pencils. I stamped the birds again & fussy cut them (you can get matching thin cuts with these stamps if you are not into fussy cutting) & used 3D foam tape to raise them up & added some clear shimmer brush to them. The card turned out super pretty.
The next idea I have was to use it in this interactive Peek-A-Boo Card
I got the cutting directions from a peek-a-boo design from Jennifer McGuire – she always does amazing clear instruction videos & I want to be like her when I grow up. I used a basic circle for my window, decorated with the Scalloped Circle Thin Cuts Die which made it look very pretty. Simple colouring in with markers. Check out my Facebook video to see the card in action.
My next card, I wanted to make a feature of one of the sentiments & to do that I thought I cut out an oval window & decorate around it.
I cut the stitched rectangle first, then placed my oval where I wanted it & cut that. I stamped over the card stock with the small leaf in the background. I stamped the saying directly onto the card & added foam tape to raise the background. I then stamped, coloured & fussy cut out the bird & flowers in watercolour pencils & added some shimmer with the shimmer brush.
The next idea I wanted to do something simple but also feature some of pattern paper.
I cut up a strip of paper of pattern paper 4.5cm which is nearly 3inches wide & added some shimmer trim on either side. I then stamped the small dots along one side – this is in the stamp set & is easy to miss. Added a sentiment to the scallop circle & stamped & coloured the bird & flower with alcohol markers this time to try a different colouring method. Once I fussy cut them out I added them to the card along with some gold sequins.
