A Joyful Season Cardinal

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – A Joyful Season Cardinal

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - A Joyful Season Cardinal Dazzling Diamonds

So a couple of days ago I mentioned about having a list that I scribble colour combinations onto. Well today I have another one from that list.  I wrote down Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler and Vanilla, but had no idea where I was going to take that!

In fact, I took it in 2 ways and in a couple of weeks you’ll see the other card that I made using the same colours!

But today is a festive card for you.  I knew that I wanted to use the Joyful Season stamp set early on into the Autumn/Christmas season, mostly because of the font used in the wording. I love it.  Not too strict, not to stark, just lovely.

And of course, the cardinal is a huge bonus!

It’s a 2 step photopolymer stamp, so you create the outline first (I used chocolate chip) and add the branch where you like. Then layer over the bird, then the beak.  I initially added white ink to the berries, but changed my mind and used Dazzling Diamonds instead.

Finishing it with the wording stamped in Mossy Meadow, I rather like the card with its simplistic layers and stamping.

  2. Beautiful card Sam, love the sparkle!!

  3. Very pretty. I had not noticed this stamp set until a few days ago when you posted the branch for something like a sneak peek and poured through the mini catalog to look for the stamp. That is when I saw this set and thought, I need to get it! Love the dazzling diamonds look! Thanks, Sam!

  4. Thanks Sam so much for your videos. They really inspire me especially all your little boxes and packaging. I was wondering if you would consider doing up a tutorial on the little matchbox suitcases I see on Pinterest. They would be adorable for teeny treats. Thanks.
