Hello Birdie {04.13.2016}

Hi! Today's card is a little card I made for the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog. Us SNS designers got to play with the amazing Sparkle N Sprinkle glitters and embossing powders, and combine them with Want 2 Scrap chipboard and bling ... and boy oh boy did we have fun!
My card here is a little birdie saying hello. Let's say hello:
Want 2 Scrap Small Bird and Rhinestone Swirls
The first thing I did was cover one of the chipboard birds from the Want 2 Scrap - Small Bird Flourish [4310] pack, which comes with three birds, with Versamark Ink [VM-001]. I then heat embossed several layers of White Detail Embossing Powder [EP298]. Once the chipboard was covered in white embossing, I layered some 1/2" Double-sided "Tear-ific Tape" [SAT04] over the bird and removed the release paper. I cut strips of the Pearl Mesh - Small, and adhered them onto the tummy portion of the birdie. Once I had several rows adhered, I pressed in Tyrian Glitter [G1089] onto the remaining adhesive. And, I also added in a little eye with a dot of Liquid Pearl.
Small Bird Flourish W2S I wanted a speech bubble, and something fun and bright for the background, so I used some distress inks and a flower stencil to create a background. First, I used a light ink and blended it with an ink blender all over the white cardstock. Then, I layered a flower stencil over the cardstock, and inked it again with a darker ink. Once the stencil was removed, I had a two-tone background of happiness! I pulled out a speech bubble die from my stash, and die cut it. I layered it over a card panel, placed the birdie below the speech bubble, and added in the HELLO letters from a puffy alphabet set in my stash.

After I had the speech bubble adhered, I blinged up the joint! I used Want 2 Scrap Rhinestone Swirls. Because the swirls are pretty big, I cut up the swirls a little bit to better fit the two areas I wanted to add the swirls. I used one to make a branch effect under the birdie, and more swirl bits within the speech bubble for extra pizazz.

And, for a teeny bit more fun, I added some Hydrangea and Pearl Liquid Pearls to some of the flower centers.

There is a lot of bling on this card, and I really enjoyed adding as much as I could to it! I hope you enjoyed it too.

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
