I just love her little nest... I simply added a few colors
of brown Distress inks to my clear heat embossed images, and stamped a sweet little gingham sky using the EBE Plaid Maker set.
There is only one Cardinal in the set. Yes. I did do a little mirror stamping! and I checked with my favorite birding site for a guide to coloring my sweet little pair. How simple would it be to make him into a Blue Jay?
Thanks for stopping by today ... get ready for even more sweetness from the March Essentials by Ellen release on Friday!
You little enabler, you. This looks like something I soooooo NEED in my collection. Mirror stamping must be your forte because those cardinals look amazing.
Thank you for 'The Sneak Peek'!!! Gorgeous designs, both of them, love the cute images, the plaid and the sentiments x. Fun idea with the cardinal and mirror stamping, so creative x.
Wow!! You mirror stamp like a boss!! This is so cue!! I am loving the gingham background!!
Fabulous cards and fabulouser mirror stamping my friend, you have truly made this set shine!
Thank you for the sneak! Your cards are so creative and cute!
Total sweetness!! you have created the most adorable backdrop with that gingham! and I love your mirrored cardinals! gee whiz Michele!! to the top of the class with ya!
These are wonderful Michele! I like the gingham backgrounds so much. Can't wait to see some of our feathered friends making their spring debuts. Come on warm weather!
So sweet--love the gingham for your base! And I adore those birds. You did an amazing job coloring the female cardinal!
Wonderful cards Michele, fantastic sneaky peek. Great job on the mirror stamping and the coloring of the cardinal pair. I wonder if they mate for life?
Wow, wow, WOW!!! I love these cards. That first one, oh so sweet and charming. That nest looks amazing! The soft colors lend to the charm. The second card is wonderful with the bolder colors! Love the green gingham. And the mirror stamping looks fabulous. So do the colors of the birds. Fantastic work, Michele!
Adorable cards Michele! You have showcased the new stamps to perfection!!! Sweet birds ... I love the one in the next with the eggs. Can't help but smile when I saw it. :) The gingham backgrounds are awesome!! xx
Oh goodness, I love these sweet little birdies!!! The one with the nest is so pretty, you have colored up this sweetie so pretty and I love the nest with the eggs. I really love those gingham backgrounds too! Never thought to make my own gingham look-now I gotta give that a try! Love the cardinal's as well, you have colored the male and female up so perfectly!!! Looks like a fun release and I am loving this one as it is just in time for spring...when it finally gets here! Hugs, Brenda
I can never get mirror stamping to work for me, Michele, but yours worked perfectly to give your cardinal a mate. The other little bird is so cute perched on the nest.
Fabulous, Michele! And kudos on pulling off a reverse image -- something I haven't managed to do well YET! Love that cute little bird in the nest!
So happy to see birds.....even the inky kind! Sweet cards! Hope some birds have started their trek north!
Oh my, what a great sneak peek, Michele! I love that you used your plaid maker set for the background on both cards and that you successfully did some mirror stamping! I've failed at that technique too many times to count :) Beautiful cards, my friend!
