Autumn Bird

Yaaaaaay! I'm over the moon to find out I made Top Addict at Addicted to Stamps, with my blossom branch through the frame, so a "Big Thank You" to their DT.

My card today is for three challenges

First, Addicted to Stamps want something

Second, is  CAS Colours and Sketches  with these colours,

and lastly, Friday Mashup have this sketch and/or want us to use a 
                         NEW STAMP SET    

This is my card

I've had this stamp set, Four Seasons, for a while, but not used it. I love the chubby birds in the centres of these designs, and so out it came today. (I think this is the Autumn Stamp judging by the acorns and leaves.)
I coloured the round design with my Write Markers, and layered it on the three Nesties. I then used the larger leaf in the set to create my own chevrons, and these were laid on some brown card cut with decorative scissors. I used an Ivory card as white seemed too harsh against the brown. What do you think?

Supplies :
Card = Choc Chip, Summer Starfruit, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, and Ivory base FMS
Stamps = Four Seasons and Tea Shoppe
Inks = Choc Chip, Summer Starfruit, and Crumb Cake
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Fiskars Scissors

Thanks for dropping by, and I'll be back soon


  1. Congrats on your win last week! And this is another great entry. Love the colour combo and your own chevrons-the leaves are perfect for this. Thanks for joining us at ATSM

  2. Congratulations on the win Bev. You deserve to be Top Addict with that card! I loved this stamp set and have used it quite a few times. How clever of you to make your own chevrons with stamping! Another great idea. Vx

  3. Hi Bev - a great use of our colours this week at CC&S - thanks so much for joining in - Jacqueline xx

  4. Nice job combining the challenges! I agree with you - sometimes ivory provides a much softer, nicer look than white. Thanks for sharing your card in this week's challenge at CAS - Colours and Sketches.

  5. I love this set and you did a wonderful job with it, great coloring!

    Thanks for joining us at The Friday Mashup!

  6. Great idea to stamp the chevron shapes. I love your colors, perfect for that stamp set! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  7. Well done on your win -that's fatastic Bev! Great use of the colours from our colour challenge at CC&S. The little bird stamp is gorgeous, perfect stamping too! Thanks for playing along this week
