Winter Birdhouse

Have you seen all the new Stampavie Christmas images?  Stampavie just released 35 new images and 5 new sentiment set.  Aren’t they all so cute?!  I love all of them and can’t wait to ink up each one.

I decided to ink up this Winter Birdhouse image from Tina Wenke first.  It’s such a pretty image.  I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers.  I used these marker colors: R27, R29, R46, R89, YG95, YG97, Y35, BG000, BG01, BG02, E21, E23, B52.

I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s Good Cheer paper pad and added lots of stitching.  I also added some 25mm Deep Red Open Roses, White Sweetheart blossoms, and small filigree silver corners from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added some white liquid applique to the snowy parts of the image and used my heat gun to make it all puffy like real snow.

I also finished the inside of my card with more of the patterned papers I used on the front and more silver filigree corner pieces.

Have a great day!
