We Create March Blog Hop March To The Beat

Welcome to the We Create March Blog Hop as we celebrate the month of March. Whether you are looking forward to Spring or maybe your love of music (marching along to the beat), there is something for everyone to enjoy this month. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative.
For my card, I decided to create a Spring themed design using the Sweet Songbirds Bundle. Here in Colorado, we welcome the birds back to our neighborhood in March and I love hearing their sweet music. I wanted to create a bright and cheerful design to celebrate their return and to help cheer me up on this cold and snowy days. It is a reminder that warmer days will be here soon.

This sweet card design features several of the beautiful 2022-2024 In Colors, including Tahitian Tide, which I used for the card base and the accent layers. For the card front, I chose to use a piece of Starry Sky Designer Series Paper from the Tea Boutique 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. I love the subtle texture in this design and this beautiful color helps make the bright colors pop. For the bird, I chose to use Crushed Curry Classic ink to stamp the images onto Basic White cardstock and used the coordinating Songbird Builder Punch to punch out the images. I colored the beak with a Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker and stamped the eyes with Soft Suede Classic ink . To create the background for the focal circle, I stamped the branches, musical notes and bird's legs with Soft Suede Classic ink onto the Basic White cardstock circle. For the leaves, I stamped the images twice onto Basic White cardstock with Parakeet Party Classic ink and fussy cut them out. I added them to the focal image using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I stamped the image with Soft Suede Classic ink onto the Basic White label and then layered it onto the larger Tahitian Tide cardstock label. To assemble the card, I attached the focal circle to the center of the card front and added the bird to the circle with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, lining it up over the top of the stamped legs. To embellish the card, I a colored several of the Pearl Hearts with the Dark Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the card front. I just love how bright and cheerful this card design is. It is a wonderful way to send someone a touch of Spring to brighten their day.
