Hummingbird

Hummingbird - 4

I have a standing order for hummingbirds for Mother’s Day. I broke down and bought “Humming Along” by Stampin’ Up. So glad I did. Since I’m not a stamper or good at coloring I decided to stamp on paper that was done like watercolor! Then I used the dies to cut it out. I used the abstract image that comes in the die as the background. It took me a little bit to figure out how to do it since the gold was thin and when it went through the xyron it would be hard to put it on without it ripping. Finally glued the gold on some plain cardstock and then cut it.

Even though the sketch showed ink I did a die cut….which is more my style!

Hippo Mother’s Day Card

Hippo Mothers Day

I have been making one of the guys at work Mother’s Day cards for his wife for the past 6 years (if not longer). He likes to have his kids represented on the card if possible. This year I found out she likes hippos so I remembered Gerda Steiner cute Hippo Stamp. It is no longer a digi stamp so I had to buy the clear stamp – Hippo with Butterfly. Now most of you know I am not a stamper and coloring is not my thing. Well I tried to color him and it looked horrible. After telling off my friends (Karen & Ro) that make stamping look easy God reminded me that wasn’t nice and to do what I’m comfortable with!! So I stamped on cardstock and paper pieced!! I love how he turned out. I found this color combo and used it for my inspiration.

I then had my husband design the saying for the shirt and I ran the shirt through the printer to print it on the shirt.

I used sketch #2 from May 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. I flipped it upside down and then added balloons coming from the original image.

SUPPLIES:
Stamp: Hippo with Butterfly @ Gerda Steiner Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill
Accents/Tools: Lawn Fawn Party Balloons, black string, EK Success 1/16 pop dots
