Little Bluebird and Riding Hood Mother's Day

Here are a couple more cards from last Saturday's workshop. I've been buying some special accessories and made a point to use some of them. This card uses Hidden Garden Rub-Ons, Kiwi/Vanilla Satin ribbon, Button Bouquet, Bella Rose Designer Paper, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White cardstock. The button has a bit of crochet thread tied through the center. The sentiment is from All Holidays and the flowers on the corners of the sentiment are from Eastern Blooms.
This was one of my favorites from Saturday. We sponged Sahara Sand and Baja Breeze on Glossy White cardstock, then stamped the vase and pussy willows in Close to Cocoa. We stamped the vase again on a sheet of Parisian Breeze Designer Paper, cut it out and glued it on. The large white grommet is from the new Occasions Mini Catalog, which is also where you'll find this stamp set, Scene in a Garden. After punching a 1/2" circle in the Baja cardstock, you put the grommet prongs through the hole and bend them back with a bone folder. After gluing the Baja to the background Kraft cardstock, we stamped the little birdie on glossy, colored him in with a blender pen and Baja ink, then punched him out with the 1/2" circle and glued him inside the grommet. For the last touch, we used the White Gel Pen on the pussy willows. Very easy card, yet it looks more involved.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station once again. I'd love to hear from you!
