Parakeet Party with Detailed Dogwood
A number of the larger flower/leaf spray from the Detailed Dogwood stamp set was stamped in Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ ink on Basic White card-stock. The bird in the Thoughtful Expressions Stamp set was stamped similarly. As mentioned, the Detailed Dogwood stamp set is a Sale-a-bration set that you can receive for free with a purchase of $180 of Stampin’ Up! products in one order. Some single flowers from the first mentioned stamps were stamped in Daffodil Delight Classic ink.
The dogwood spray was coloured with Stampin’ Blends, ie the leaves with Parakeet Party, the flowers with Daffodil Delight and Colour Lifter. The hummingbird was coloured with Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight, Azure Afternoon and Crumb Cake combos with the Colour Lifter.
The flowers and bird were all fussy cut. The Detailed Dogwood set is a stamp alone set so required fussy cutting and while the bird did have a coordinating die, I fussy cut it out for consistency sake. Two different small leaf sprays from the Notes of Nature set of dies were cut from Basic White card-stock. One of the scalloped border dies from the Basic Border dies was used to cut a B-side panel of the Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper (another free Sale-a-bration product with a qualifying order).
A Basic White card front was partially coloured with Pool Party ink and a Blending Brush, plus some splatters were added with a Parakeet Party Stampin’ Write Marker. The DSP die cut edge was popped up on Dimensionals. The flowers and leaves were arranged over the border and adhered in place with either Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Glue Dots. The hummingbird was popped up on double Dimensionals.
I do hope to see you next week when we will be featuring Petal Pink as we continue the weekly 2023-2024 Colour Creations Blog Hop series.
