Tuesday T&T About Those Birds!

No need to say I am really in love with the dkdesigns and this is what I did quickly with two of the birds:

FTB4 (2)
Bird Collage 1 - E13043, Happy is the Heart - B11073, Elegant Flourish 2 - A8688, Cover-a-Card Sm. Quatrefoil - CC125

Okay, so he looks like a Gingerbread Bird!!!  I used the items below to create my images.  For the Bird Collage 1, I used a really simple stamp technique known to most as "Kissing".

Background and Image stamp area:

Background Image:

FTB5 (2)

  1. CAC Sm. Quatrefoil was inked with Memento Bamboo Green ink and stamped on Neenah Natural (off-white, ivory, cream, etc.) cardstock using my Mega Mount. (The Bird Collage image was stamped in the vacant space left on the cardstock.

Bird Collage Kissing:

  1. The Quatrefoil stamp (laid flat) was inked with the Memento Bamboo Green.
  2. Bird Collage 1 was inked with Memento Desert Sand and then pressed (kiss) to the Quatrefoil stamp.
  3. The Bird Collage was stamped 3 times to vacant areas on the Natural cardstock.
  4. The rose and leaves were painted with twinks, but dyes, other watercolors, or Copic/ShinHan markers can also be used.
  5. One was trimmed around.  On the second I trimmed around the rose with leaves. and mounted to the bird with 3D pop-dots.
  6. I used an olive green marker around the edges of all but the rose petal edges.

  1. The background was mounted to another piece of natural cardstock.
  2. the ribbon was laid diagonally in the center.
  3. The bird was mounted to the sentiment.
  4. The bird with sentiment was mounted to cardfront with 3D pop-dots.

  6. Pearls were added to the bird as shown.  A little bit of Viva Decor Clear Glass was added to the flourishes around the rose.

On to my second card for the birds:


Cover-a-Card Toile - CC127, Bird Collage 4 - E13046, So Thankful - B11072, Elegant Flourish 2 - A8688




  1. Maybe this was too easy!  All the images were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on an 8.5"X11".  The Bird Collage 4 was stamped 3 times. (One extra for layering and one for the inside of the card)  The roses were painted with a pink
  2. Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles (the two middle dies) were put through the Cuttlebug and then sponged around the edges edges with Rich Cocoa, using the die as a stencil.

  2. The roses were painted with a darker pink.
  3. A remnant piece of ribbon was placed across the middle.
  4. A Bird Collage 4 was trimmed and mounted to the largest Romantic Rectangle.  The tail was left loose so the sentiment could be attached.
