Quite Curvy Ivy Hello

by Joanne James12. April 2021 15:39

Happy Monday everyone! Not sure where today has gone so this post will be a quick one as The James Juniors are back to swimming this evening so I need to go at prep the dinner! I promised a second card using Jen B's Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week and I'm also entering another card over Just Add Ink, this time with a 'feathers and leaves' combo: 

    

I went with another border die for that wonky central column - this time from the Curvy Dies set:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

The ivy-leaved die produces an embossed column with the ivy leaves diecut out. So I decided to use another of the dies in the set to create a hard border alongside so that I could overlay a white panel onto my Old Olive base, and then ran the die through my diecutting machine again, this time in Mossy Meadow, and then I paper-pieced the leaves into the gaps, adhering each one at an angle from the base - hopefully you can see what I mean from the photo below:

 

I added my sentiment from the 'Quite Curvy' stamp set directly to the cardbase, adding a bird from the same set that I perched onto the 'hello' itself. I coloured my bird like a blue tit and added another to the inside of my card too:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Short and sweet from me today; I'll be tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Until then, happy stampin'!

That's a pretty curve. The beautifully coloured bird perched on the word is just perfect!
