One More Time: You’re On My Heart

Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone!

Last week I posted this card featuring the new “You’re On My Heart” die that was recently released as part of the Simon Says Stamp “Hello, Gorgeous” release. With everything going on in the world right now, it feels like you can never say this enough… so I decided to make another card with that sentiment.

For this card, I decided to create a little scene using some super cute bird and birdhouse dies from My Favorite Things.

I ink-blended the bird house, sentiment, and the background using Distress Oxide inks and used Copic markers to color in the little birds and the accents on the bird house. For Copic colors, I used:

Hearts & Flowers: R29 and R39
Bird Bellies: E11, E33, E08, and E97
Bird BodiesW0, W1, W3, W5, W7, and W9
Leaves: YG03, G94, G99

For the background, I die cut a stitched panel of card stock and lightly ink-blended the top 2/3 using Salty Ocean Oxide ink. I then applied the cloud stencil and ink-blended again with the same color. Once dry, I spritzed it with a bit of water to give it a distressed look.

After getting all the components ready, I assembled all my pieces on the panel. I popped the birds up using foam tape, added a few red confetti sparkles to the center of the flowers, and used my black glaze pen for the eyes of the birds. The entire panel was added to my card front using foam tape.

I just love this little scene and I hope you do too!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

    • Thank you! For the birdhouse and lettering I used Salvaged Patina and Peeled Paint – both with a VERY light application. The peeled paint has a yellow undertone which comes out more when applied lightly. I have links to both of these in my supply list, if you are interested.

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
