A little toucan (Bird Banter)

Just a little toucan

Hi, today I am sharing another cute card using the new Bird Banter stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue (available to Customers from 03 January 2018 and Demonstrators from 01 December 2017). Whilst there are different birds to choose from in this set, I am still loving the toucan.  I’ve coloured him a slightly different way; still using the Stampin’ Blends but you could easily use any other colouring medium such as the Stampin’ Write markers.

I wanted to place the toucan on the branch which also comes in the stamp set. I started by cutting a panel of whisper white cardstock to the size I wanted and then stamped the branch (in Memento ink as I am using the Stampin’ Blends to colour the image).  I added some additional leaves to the branch to fill in space a little more. I stamped the toucan twice: once directly on to the panel so it looks like he’s standing on the branch and another time on a different sheet of cardstock so I could colour and cut it out. I wanted to ‘pop up’ the image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Wink of Stella to the finished bird to make him shimmer.

I thought the panel looked a little stark so I added a wash of blue ink (in Tempting Turquoise) to create the sky. When the panel was finished, I adhered it to a black panel.

For the card base, I stamped all of the birds with Calypso Coral ink onto Calypso Coral cardstock. I love this tone on tone look. It is subtle but effective. The panel was then adhered to this base. You could pop the panel up using Stampin’ Dimesionals but I decided against it this time. The sentiment (which was stamped and embossed in white on Basic Black cardstock) was added to the top of the image.

To finish the card, I used some rhinestones (of course!) which I coloured with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends markers so it matched perfectly.

Here’s the card…

This really is a simple card and one you could make mass produce easily, especially if you don’t pop up the bird. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
