Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning! It's another Thursday with Lindsay - Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I don't know if I've ever said this, but I am absolutely blessed by being able to design for this wonderful lady! She's so sweet and so generous. I am honored to be a part of this team (and the other teams that have graciously extended me the offer to join them).

I am excited to get to share with you a new set that she's released this week. It makes me feel like Spring is definitely coming. I made this card for my monthly card group, too and I was so excited to see the different elements in this new set, Birds and Branches, and that they worked so well to create an easel card.



Here's the front and part of the inside of the card. I even pulled out some more old patterned paper to create my card. I used some from Spring Flowers (I think that's what it was called) from Stampin' Up! over my Close to Cocoa base. I colored the images with Copics. I added some mustard yellow grosgrain ribbon and three buttons to finish off the front of the card. I printed the bird's nest and layered onto another piece of card stock to give it some stability, cut it out and then pop dotted it onto the card to be the "stopper" for the easel.



Here's a view of the inside. I added a text box above the branch to put in my sentiment. This card went together in minutes - I love it when that happens!

Please be sure to visit Lindsay and the rest of the team because I'm sure they have amazing cards and projects to share with you. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Wow what a card! There is so much detail! I love the inside! I'm such a lazy person when it comes to doing the insides of the card. I never go to that much trouble.

Just perfect, Melissa! As always I'm just floored by your hand cuts and the bird nest is another wonderful example. Beautiful coloring. I've been wanting to try the easel card but just haven't gotten around to it yet. Great job with yours!
