For day 3, we are showcasing the Hummingbird stamp set and coordinating dies.

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.


I ink-blended an A2-size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks that matches the colors of the Hummingbird and the flowers.  I used my distress sprayer and sprayed some water on this panel and used some paper towel to pick up the water droplets.  I adhered this colored panel onto an A2 size card base.

I used a border die from my collection to die-cut the two scallop panels and foam mounted them on the card.  I adhered the flowers with some liquid glue and foam-mounted the Hummingbird for added dimension.



I used my Sakura glitter gel pen to add some flecks of glitter on the Hummingbird’s wings.  To finish my design, I added the sparkling clear sequins to the card.  I also added the sentiment that was stamped on some black card stock and die-cut using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set.
