StampTangle Birdy Wish - Have Fun!

Sending you a Spring-time StampTangle wish for you to Have Fun!!

JFF Stamps used:
StampTangle Cardinal

This little guy was stamped on white cardstock then embossed with black EP.  He was colored with a variety of Distress Stains and I added a bit of pen work with a white gel pen.  I stamped him a second time on a piece of vintage ephemera that I had die-cut into the oval shape.  The colored bird was then trimmed and mounted to the oval.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend....
Happy Memorial Day
(to those of you in the USA!)

Sunflower StampTangle

These sunflowers are a fun combination of the Flower Block and the flower from the StampTangle Cube.  Initially I stamped the flower block 6x's - I colored 3 of the flowers using Mustard Seed Distress Stain, I colored the centers of the remaining 3 flowers with a combination of Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Stain.  I then stamped 3 of the small flowers from the StampTangle Cube and colored each of those with Gathered Twigs DS as well.   I then stamped 5 of the StampTangle Leaf #1 and colored using Mowed Lawn DS.  Once everything was dry I assembled the flowers and embellished with a bit of Stickles Glitter Glue.

With Love StampTangle Fan Flourish

StampTangle Cube
(Fan Shaped Flourish)

Today's card was made using the fan shaped florish on the StampTangle Cube.  I stamped the fan in clusters of three and then colored specific areas red.  I also added Stickles in the centers for a bit of bling.  

The StampTangle Cube is such a fun stamp to have because you can use the images alone, combined or in various clusters.  Super for creating beautiful backgrounds, focal points or even shrink art jewelry!
