Stampendous Holiday Birds

Do you love birds?  Do you love to stamp and color birds?  Then you’ll love this set!  It’s called Holiday Birds Cling Stamps & Dies by Stampendous and it’s just beautiful!  I’m always drawn to realistic images and these were a joy to color and create with!

I began by inking up the fabulous Pointsettia Collage stamp (by Stampendous too!) with Forest Moss distress oxide ink, spritzed the stamp with a mist of water then stamped it onto a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock.  I set it aside to dry and stamped out both bird images onto another piece of Bristol Smooth and heat-embossed them in gold.

I loved coloring them with my Zig markers, using a water brush to move and blend the ink.  After coloring the image, I cut them out with the convenient dies!

To construct this card, I wrapped a length of gold ribbon around the watercolored background panel and taped it down on the back.  I sponged more Forest Moss oxide ink around the edges then attached it to my base card of olive green.  On a scrap of olive card stock, I heat-embossed the sentiment (from Stampendous Merry Words Clear stamps) and then die-cut the glittery pine needles from a Gina Marie Designs die.  I tucked the pine needles behind the bird then attached it to the ribbon with a couple pieces of foam tape.  The sentiment was adhered just below the Merry Christmas sentiment which is part of the background stamp!

This card was done exactly the same way except I used the little wren instead of the cardinal.  I think they’re both very festive and may tuck these away for personal use!  Thank you so much for visiting!  🙂

  1. These are so beautiful, Sharon! Shared them today. We’re sold out of this bird set, but they still have it on amazon, so they’ll be so excited to get the extra boost as well. Thanks for sharing!
