I Love You Birdie!!

Hello everyone!! I’m here with a brand new stamp company based in Germany called Create A Smile.  They have fun designs, cute images and punny sentiments that you will love.


Over on their Create a Smile blog, they are having a Guest Designer Search for their September Release!!

How exciting is that!!  When I saw that, I knew I would love to be Guest Designer for them.  So I created a project with their free digi birdie to be included in the running!

Take a look at my card:

I Love You Birdie

When I saw this little birdie on their blog, I fell in love with him.  He is the cutest bird I’ve seen.  His big eyes pulled me in.

I used Copic marker Y13 and Y19 to color him in.

I fussy cut him out because I wanted him to pop him off of my card.

I created my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

I stamped my “I Love You” sentiment from Papertrey Ink Building Blocks stamp set in Versafine Black Ink. I added foam adhesive to the back of my birdie and adhered him to the tag.

I used my white gel pen to create eyes on my birdie.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag and add some retired So Saffron ribbon and Tempting Turquoise bakers twine.

For my card base, I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil to create a subtle background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and my mini distress blending tool on a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added foam adhesive behind my tag and WaLa, I was done.

So what do you think?  Will my card win over anyone’s heart?  I hope so!!

Let me know what you think below.

    • Hey Samantha! Thank you so much for your kind words. I had a lot of fun working with this little birdie!! I have to admit when I first started working with the bird I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with him. Then as I colored him it all just fell into place. I like that feeling.
