Spring Bird Daffodil - By Florence

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.

The Spring Bird Daffodil Set is one of three sets of rubber stamps released this month.  They are all fabulous sets and the epitome of Spring Time.  I don't know about you but I am definitely looking forward to Spring arriving this year.  It's been knocking on the door for a couple of weeks now and will certainly be met with a warm welcome.

 Below are two of the projects I made using the amazing  Spring Bird Daffodil  set.  I don't want anyone to miss out so please do check out the multi-buy offer which can be seen here.  The designs are exquisite.

To make this tag

Stamp the large daffodil and mask
Stamp the large daffodil again and mask
Stamp the large daffodil for a third time and mask
Stamp the Bird so it appears behind the daffodils and mask
Leave all of the masks on
Pat some Distress Ink on a piece of plastic sheet or acrylic block and spritz with water.
Swish the stamped tag around in the diluted ink and dry
Repeat the above process using a different color Distress Ink and dry
Remove the masks and color your stamped images
Finally, add a small sentiment.

Tip:  I used masking fluid on both of these projects. 

To make this card

Stamp the bird and mask
Pat some Distress Ink onto a piece of plastic sheet or acrylic block and spritz with water
Swish the card around in the diluted ink and leave to dry
Stamp the music panel so that it appears behind the bird  (I used Lavender Memento ink)
Remove the mask from the bird and color the image
Make up the card as seen using some pretty papers for mat and layering.

Unless otherwise stated, I used Black Archival Ink to stamp my images on both of these projects.

That's all from me today. I hope you like the projects.

Thank you for looking.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Wow They are both absolutely gorgeous.I like them a lot.

  2. Love both cards, especially your colouring on the first one. Also love how your backing paper perfectly matches the colours on your topper.

  3. These are beautiful. Makes me wish spring was really here.

  4. A gorgeous tag and card, lovely colours and very appropriate for this Spring like weather we are having just now

  5. The first is a super example of how effective masking can be - the little bird sits beautifully behind the cluster of daffodils. I particularly like your choice of colours picking up on the complimentary nature of mauve & yellow/orange. I had to look again at your images for I was struck by how different the two birds appear with the variation of the berries' colouring. The little trim left & right accentuates the die cut edging nicely too.

  6. These are just beautiful . Thanks so much for the masking fluid tip . I must try it

  7. These are both beautiful Florence and the placing of the daffodils and masking and then making the background has worked so well, and you have managed to get lots of nice variation of tone which adds lots of interest. I love the complementary colours you have used on both and the colouring is so pretty. The placement of the bird on his branch just above the flowers on the first is lovely as is the pretty background paper and topper on the second, and goes to show that the bird looks just as good alone. x

  8. Beautiful cards, thank for the instructions too, Kate x

  9. Really love the daff tag, the colours are just beautiful and the flowers look stunning X
