We are back today with more fabulous inspiration! We hope you’ve enjoyed all the cards and projects this week so far. If this is your first time here, click here to start at day 1. Let’s get started with introducing our Free Stamp Set called Summer Warbler.
Introducing our Summer Warbler set! Every release, we introduce a free set every two months! This is our newest addition! This is a 3×4 size set with one extra large gorgeous warbler and a beautiful sentiment to go with it. For more details on our Stamp Of The Month, please click here.
Here’s our coordinating cut file that cuts out a perfect outline of your image. You can click here for more info on this cut file.
My first card uses distress markers again and easy simple coloring. I began by using Antique Linen ink and just dropped color onto my bird. A tip: make sure that your brush strokes are going in the direction of the feathers. This gives the bird a more feathered look when it dries.
Here’s a super up close look of my warbler. There are about 4 layers of distress markers on this pretty bird. I then used black for her feet, beak and eye after my ink dried. This gorgeous sentiment can be found from yesterday’s new set Sun-Ripened Grapes.
There are so many different color warblers and this what makes this set so versatile! You can color this gorgeous bird any color that matches your card. For my second card, I went with yellows and grays. This time using my watercolors and no distress makers.
As you can see, watercolors do offer more details in your work then distress markers. And you can see my brush strokes using a 00 brush.
I then added some Crochet Tape and Christmas Ribbon Collection. This gorgeous sentiment can be found from our Grapes set introduced yesterday.
For my last card, I grabbed our Autumn Blessings stamp set and used the sentiment from today’s newest set.
I began by stamping the autumn wreath and flowers from our Autumn Blessing set. Next, I stamped over the wreath in black ink.
I then added some sequins, crochet trim and also some silver twine. A perfect card to send to someone that needs encouragement.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s newest stamp set. We are so excited to be offering this as our free stamp of the month too! Now onto our amazing designers that have created some beautiful cards today! Here they are and if you see something that you are inspired by please leave them a comment.
