Little Birdie Crafts - Happy Bird-Day

Hello friends, thanks for stopping by today - it is a beautiful autumn/fall day here in the Nations Capital - 32C degree's and a great day to be creating.  I am a little excited as I am using new line of products that has trickled into Australia but is here BIG time now - Little Birdie Crafts - their range is gorgeous - and the flowers - divine.  

My card today is whimsical - what is not to love abut this darling little bird from the Happy Bird-Day stamp set.   The image, along with the party hat and sentiment have been stamped using Imagine Memento Tuxedo Black Ink  and coloured using Chameleon Pens and fussy cut/hand cut using scissors.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Swirl Frame Etched Dies On the Wings of Love Collection by Joanne Fink - this has been cut/embossed using the  Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and adhered to white card stock.  Next it has been popped into a slightly larger pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.

The card front has been lightly sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Summer Sky and Bamboo Leaves using a Sponge Dauber.  White paint and Imagine Fireworks in Danube Blue have been randomly splattered into the background.

The image and the sentiment have been popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Small white 3D Foam Squares.  

The beautiful Beaded Flowers have been glued to the top of the frame and to each corner to complete the card.

Little Birdie Crafts are available at Choice the Discount Store in Noosaville as you can see in this Video by Little Birdies Craft Queensland Retail Educator and artist in her own right - Amanda Mason
