Hello Little Birdy

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Anne Harmon.

For our challenge this week Anne has given us the theme ... Emboss! Use any technique that involves embossing - wet, dry, resist. Whatever appeals to you.

I wanted to play with my Concord & 9th Hello Turnabout stamp which I have had for a month or so and hadn't had a chance to use it as yet and also the new Distress Oxides. So I used the inks to stamp my background and the layers of the bird. For the fourth stamping on my Hello Turnabout background I stamped it using VersaMark ink and then gold embossing powder.

As you can see I have created a Pull Card using the Pop it Ups Oval Pull Card from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The bird is a freebie I got from a magazine which includes the outline of the bird and then the stamps to add the colored details to the inside of the image.

When you "pull" the card open it reveals a message and another bird which is attached to a spinner from the Rectangle Pull Card die set.

I also added a Nuvo Drop to the closure tab of the card.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Your cute little bird looks right at home in the midst of that great background. I've been looking at those Concord & 9th turnabout stamps with interest. Super card, Frances!
