Cute Honeycomb Happiness Bird and Balloon Card | A Work of Carte

November 2018 VIP Host Code: CQHEC9EJ

Hey Stampers! Just a cute and simple card for you guys today! Here’s a card I made with my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Honeycomb Happiness! I adore this little bird!

The background on this card is a sheet of the new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper which I cut to fit the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card.

I stamped the bird on a 2″ piece of Watercolor Paper in Basic Black Archival Ink. The balloon, also from Honeycomb Happiness, was positioned with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to end above the birds wing. I drew a little extra string under the birds wing to give it the affect that he was holding the string.

I watercolored the bird using Mint Macaron ink and the balloon using Calypso Coral ink. If you need a watercoloring refresher, check out my video, Sale-A-Bration 2016 Honeycomb Happiness, where I show you how to get rich colors from Stampin’ Up ink. I colored his beak and feet with a Crushed Curry marker.

The banner in the back is a 1-1/2″ piece of Mint Macaron. I have to admit that I eyeballed the length of these banners. The finished Mint Macaron banner, which was embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, is probably 5-1/4″ tall, while the white banner is around 4-3/4″ tall. Both have been punched using the Banner Triple Punch.

Last, I used an old favorite from the 2014 Holiday Catalog, Four Feathers with their coordinating Feathers Dies. Sadly, these are now retired but I love them just the same!
