The Greetery June Release: Robins & Wrens on Blooming Branches

Welcome back to another day of The Greetery June Release week! Today’s sets are spectacular and honestly I love them as much as I love the sets on every other day. I wouldn’t be able to tell you my favorites since each of them are unique and stunning individually! But one thing for sure is these cute, chubby birds are seriously adorable.

Ah, I really love these wrens every time I look at them! Okay, so here all the nitty gritty details. The images were stamped in the following colors:

I stamped my branches first, die cut, and then stamped the flowers and leaves after. The birds were stamped first, then die cut. I kept the warm scene going by ink blending some soft clouds in the background with Tea Dye oxide ink and a cloud stencil.

Once I had my arrangement decided, I stamped the sentiment ‘sending caring thoughts’ from the Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You set. There’s just a peaceful feel to this scene that I thought was a perfect for a sympathy card.

The stems and birds were then added on with thin strips of foam tape that I cut from my normal 1/2″ in foam tape. I love dimension so to me it’s worth the effort! And where there’s flowers, I love to add some Nuvo drops to the center and here I used Buttermilk Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I’ll be back tomorrow! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by The Greetery blog and other fabulous designers below for more inspiration!
