You're my type card and a Happy Easter!

Hello there,

 I created this card using a new stamp set and embossing folder that I just purchased. First I embossed the background and applied some Distress ink to most of the card. Stamped the typewriter in black, added the sentiment on the typewriter paper. Die cut the sentiment, added some embellishments and here it is. Supplies used: Jillibean Soup clear stamp set - jb0097 Elizabeth Craft Designs embossing folder - 108 - Feathers Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me die and stamp set Vintage photo Distress ink Dooodlebug Design Kraft in Colour cardstock Luxe arrow from Pink Paislee

Little birdie!

Little birdie

Hello everyone, I made this card for the current challenge on Virginia Lu's blog which is to use stencils
For my card I used a stencil from The Crafter's workshop.
I decided to try Jennifer McGuire's idea of tinting my embossing paste. I used white an added a light orange ink until I had the desired colour.
Before the paste was dry I added some glitter and set it aside to dry. Once dry I heat embossed to bring out the sparkle.
The bird is from QuickKutz which I used a Memory Box stencil to add a little pattern to the bird.
Added some vellum, sentiment and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look.

Supplies used: TCW222s mini Tri Mosaic stencil
QuicKutz bird DS0442
Memory Box Rhapsody stencil
