Chickadees and berries

Hi All!   I made this chickadee card back in December and thought I had posted it but I didn’t!  I was trying some new scheduling of posts only to find out I goofed it up.

Luckily the chickadees are still here in NC and so are some of the berries that inspired this card.   We only had one weekend of snow here in western North Carolina but these cuties are still on my feeders!

I used my Cherry Stampin’ Blends markers to color my pearls for the berries.

I also added just a touch of smoky slate and crumb cake with a blender pen since chickadees are rarely pure white.   I used the Petal Palette bundle from the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog.  It’s a pricey bundle at $62 for the clear mount.  It’s a 2 box set of stamps and the framelit dies so it’s a lot of product in one bundle.  The stamps are etched so it creates a beautiful watercolor look.

I hope you are finding time to stamp today!

    Hi, Linda!  Where are you?  I’m in Charlotte/Pineville.  If I walk across Park Road, I’m in Pineville.  :))) God bless you, Hon!!!  :)))  Oh, and I’m jealous.  We tend to get nothing but ice, freezing rain, and sleet now-a-years.  😦

    His, joy
