Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect

Happy Wednesday, peeps! Today my husband goes for his quarterly scan and we are hoping for a good report but are prepared for otherwise. So, with that said, I want to bring you our favorite bird...



They are truly fascinating, aren't they? The patterned paper (Fabscraps) is a sheet given to me by a friend, cut at 3 3/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2". The circle is punched with the 2" circle punch. The fussy cut humming bird is from the retired Picture Perfect stamp set. It's a 4 part stamp and I used Marina Mist, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Tempting Turquoise inks. I adhered it with Tombow. I'm entering my card in RRCB83

RRCB 83

because my stamp set is from the 2016 Occasions catalog and it retired on May 30, 2017. I was sad. But I'm happy I can enter it in Seize the Birthday too!

The inside is a piece of Soft Sky cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". On a piece of retired Pistacchio Pudding cardstock cut at 3 5/8" x 5 3/8", I stamped a heart from Heart Happiness and the sentiment from the retired Stylized Birthday Wood Mount stamp. The ink I used was retired Certainly Celery (you could substitute Pear Pizzazz for both of those colors). I adhered that to the Soft Sky panel, which was adhered to the inside of the patterned paper.

  7. I love hummers too! I saw online that they are beginning to migrate back to our area, so I need to get out our feeders. Although it's still so cold, I can't imagine that they would want to hang around! Your card is very pretty, the papers are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber!

    1. Thank you, LeAnne, for stopping by to leave a comment on behalf of Retro Rubber. There is a museum in Tupper Lake, NY that has a hummingbird walk. It is a fantastic museum if you ever get to go.
