Day 4: 10 Days, 10 Cards

Moving on to Day 4 with a card you can send to a friend just to say "Hi" and offer a little encouragement.  It also utilizes a punch of the hearts I had left over from the Day 3 card, our Valentine Wreath.  This card is relatively simple using a clean layout.

For this card you will need:
  • Stamp Sets:  Cheep Talk
  • Card Stock:  Bashful Blue and Whisper White
  • Designer Series Paper:  Tea Party
  • Stampin' Pads and Stampin' Write Markers:  Chocolate Chip, Glorious Green, Brilliant Blue, Dusty Durango, and So Saffron
  • Tools:  Small Heart Punch and Heart to Heart Punch
Use a sponge to apply a small amount of Brilliant Blue to the background of the Whisper White.  For the branch, I inked up the leaves with the Glorious Green and then wiped off the branch portions and added the Chocolate Chip with my Stampin' Write markers.  I added some of my leftover hearts as flowers to my branches.  I stamped too birds in Brilliant Blue using a similar technique described for the branch, wiping off the smaller elements (beak and legs) and then adding the additional colors.  I cut these birds out and added them to the branches. 

I cut the Tea Party DSP to size and adhered it along the side and bottom of my Whisper White with my birds and branch.  Using a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped my "hello there" sentiment with two flowers in So Saffron on either side.  I glued this to the bottom piece of Tea Party DSP.

Pretty simple, but very sweet.  Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me a comment and you're one visit closer to another entry in my "Stamp Away the Winter Blahs" contest.

God Bless and Happy Stampin'!
