VIDEO | Perfectly Peaceful Day

Hello there, I was over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel yesterday sharing a peaceful scene card using the Stacey Yacula Peaceful Birds set. This is such a beautiful set! I love the birds as well as all of the foliage and birdhouse.

I started off my card by stamping the images from the MFT Peaceful Birds Stamp Set on to white cardstock using MFT Extreme Black Ink. I then coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) before die cutting out using the MFT Peaceful Birds Die-namics

While die-cutting, I also cut the images again from white cardstock and adhered them behind the stamped images using MFT On-Point Precision Glue, for added dimension. I took a 3.5" x 4.75" panel of white cardstock and added ink blending to the bottom using Tim Holtz Wilted Violet Distress Ink and an ink blending brush. 

I mixed a little water with Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White Paint and splattered it on to the panel. I also mixed Perfect Pearls powder with water and splattered that on too, before setting aside to dry. Once dry, the images were adhered on top, using more liquid glue. I cut the pieces overhanging the bottom and then adhered the panel to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. 

I stamped a sentiment from the MFT Peaceful Birds Stamp Set on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the card with a combination of foam tape and liquid glue. To finish off, I added white gel pen dots to the flowers. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

I think this card would be quite good for a new home card too, but I really like that sentiment. I think it could be used for lots of different occasions. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it.

  1. Beautiful card Michelle, the muted colours on the birds are lovely, especially against the vibrancy of the purple. Love all the pretty splatter too xx ❤
