Bird Bath with Birdies Card

We have lots of snow here today, but I am dreaming about Spring and being out in my flower garden after creating this Bird Bath with Birdies Card featuring Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms Collection.


I colored the image with Copics and to create the pink hydrangeas I created my own mix by combining Peony Pink Flower Soft, Ivory Flower Soft and a little bit of Art Glitter's Warm White Chunky Transparent Glitter.  For the yellow/light green hydrangeas, I used Lemon Chiffon Prills from the Spring Bling Prills package.  I added Burnt Sienna Ultrafine Flower Soft to each birdie's belly.

Other Products: Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Classic Ovals LG; Other Paper: Curious Iridescent - Cryogen White Paper; Ink: Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black; Copics: B0000, BG10, BG34, C00, C1, C3, C5, RV00, G40, G43, G46, B91, B93, B95, E31, E81, Y17; Embellishments: Flower Soft Ivory, Pink Peony and UltraFine Toffee; Art Glitter Warm White Chunky Transparent Glitter; May Arts Ribbon

Instructions:  Begin by creating a 6" x 6" side opening card base.  Next take a 6" x 6" card front from the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection and wrap 1 1/2" wide ribbon around the middle, securing on the back, before adhering the card front to the card base.  Add a bow to the left side on the ribbon. On Cryogen White Paper that has been die cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG, with Memento Ink stamp the bird bath image from the Hydrangea Bird Bath Set and color with Copics.  Add Crystal Glitter with Dries Clear Adhesive to the water in the bird bath.  Add Toffee Flower Soft to each birdie's belly.  I created my own Flower Soft mix by adding equal parts of Ivory Flower Soft and Pink Peony Flower Soft plus a small amount of Warm White Chunky Glitter.  I added this Soft Pink Flower Soft Mixture to half of the hydrangeas in the image that I had colored with RV00 and to the other half of the hydrangeas that I had colored with E81 I added Lemon Chiffon Prills from the Spring Bling Prill Package. Adhere the colored image to green Birds and Blooms Paper that has been die cut with the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Die and then add it to the card front with Double Dots.  With Memento Ink stamp two leaves from the Fluffy Birdies Set and die cut with the Birds and Blooms Die.  Shape leaves with the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Molding Mat.  With Memento Ink on Cryogen White Paper stamp the birds from the Birds and Blooms Set, color them with Copics and die cut them with the Birds and Blooms Die.  Add Crystal Glitter to the bird's wings and Toffee Flower Soft to each of their bellies.  Add leaves and one bird to upper left corner and one bird to the edge of the bird bath with Double Dots as shown.  Using the Luggage and Tags Die cut out the "Birthday Wishes" tag from the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection and add the Soft Pink Flower Soft Mixture and Prills with Dries Clear Adhesive.  Add the tag to the card front with Double Dots.
