Kylie's International Highlights | Winners Blog Hop | August 2021

I am once again honoured to be hopping with Kylie into the Top 10 for Kylie's International Blog Highlights Hop for August. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to pop on over to the blog and vote for me in the gallery.

When the time came to create a project for the Top 10, I was in a blending mood, so pulled out the "unused as yet" Garden Birdhouse Stamp Set.
I love Smoky Slate, so I chose that as my 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base. I also trimmed a piece of Smoky Slate the same size as the card front and randomly stamped the flowers on the bottom and the branch over the top using Versamark and set aside.

Next, for my panel, I trimmed a piece of Basic White 4" x 4 1/4". I stamped the branch randomly across the top and the birdhouse post with Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder, and blended the entire panel with Balmy Blue.
On a scrap piece of Basic White, I heat embossed the birdhouse and blended with Smoky Slate, fussy cut and mounted at the top of the birdhouse post.

Lastly, I white heat embossed the greeting and single bird on Vellum and wrapped around the panel, adhering at the back, finishing off with wrapped white thread tied off in a bow and attached to a Basic White mat piece measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". This is then attached to the Smoky Slate panel and mounted on the card front.

As always, finish off with pearls/rhinestones as desired.

Once again, thank you for voting me into the Top 10 and here are all the other winners:
