The Nested Friends stamp set didn’t have my heart at first glance. However, I liked the variety of sentiments in the set and ended up ordering it. I can tell you, I have got my money’s worth out of this set, especially with this bird, using it so many times.

I created a background for my card with Versamark ink which was heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I blended Misty Moonlight ink around the edges. Adding this to a card base which I applied the same technique of blending created depth for this tone on tone background.

My card was been inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. To form the strips I used the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This is a great sketch to use up those scrap pieces of patterned paper or cardstock I know you have lying around.

This pack of 12″ x 12″ papers is a bumper pack with 48 sheets in it. Usually selling for $53, during our June Designer Series Paper sale you can get it for $45.05.

The bird was stamped in Daffodil Delight and I added some detail with Watercolor Pencils. I used Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Balmy Blue and Early Espresso.

The berries and leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Some extra shading was added with an Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. The smaller Soft Sea Foam die cut leaves were also individually highlighted the same way.

A small sentiment was added to flow in with the arrangement of sprigs whilst not detracting from the pretty paper.
