Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is the great outdoors. We aren't supposed to use flowers, but that's okay, we still have everything else outside to choose from! Boy, that covers a lot of territory, haha. Since the bluebirds have been busy raising their babies in our nest boxes (so much fun to watch!) I took that inspiration and ran with it.
I started by creating a background using sponge daubers to dab colors randomly on white cardstock. I was trying to give the illusion of trees and some blooming trees peeking through the die cut tree trunks. Granny Apple Green spatters were stamped over and it was adhered to the Coastal Cabana card base. The die cut tree trunks got popped up on mini dimensionals over it.
That Perched in a Tree stamp set features this chonky little fellow, who looks like he hasn't missed a meal at our feeders. 😂 He was stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends then die cut and popped up on more dimensionals after I adhered the branch and greeting.
That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
