Faith in Wings

Today I want to share a card made with my favorite stamp From Sparkle N Sprinkle November Reveal - Winter Blue Jay 809. I can only admire photos of this bird - sadly we don't have them in Estonia.  I actually didn't even knew that such birds exist...

Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Promarkers for coloring. To his feathers I added small strokes with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and covered the glue with Denim  Microfine Glitter. Leaves on the branch are 'colored' with same glue pen. After glue was dried to tacky I added Sunkissed Copper  Nuvo Gilding Flakes on top. 

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder.

Flower is made with Creative Expressions Delicate Daisies Open Petals die set. I added some color with Salty Ocean Distress ink. In center of flower is a glitter dot made with Dazzling Blue Nuvo Glitter Drops. I didn't add Glitter Drop directly to flower center. I made a big drop to the Tear-ific Tape backing and let it set. After it was dry I placed it to the flower. I love this color. 

Leaves are cut with Creative Expressions Faux Quilled Leaves die out of Sticker Paper. They are covered with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes.

Edges of the image layer are inked with Salty Ocean Distress ink. Then I took Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen and added glue all around the edges. After glue was dry I adhered Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes on top. 
I love to make glittered matting layers. I placed 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to all around the matting layer edges, adhered image layer on center and covered rest of the tape with Denim Microfine Glitter.  To finish off my card I added some small dots of White Nuvo Crystal Drops and Dazzling Blue Nuvo Glitter Drops.

Hugs & smiles,


  1. This is so pretty! I love the colors and your use of the gilding flakes. These birds are beautiful in person, and you captured their beauty so well! Way to go, Eret!!

  2. So elegant Eret! Gorgeously colored and the gilded edges are so perfect for this little card!

  3. This is beautiful! You've colored the blue jay perfectly, especially since you've not seen one before. Love the added Sue Wilson die cut flower too.

  4. Beautiful card! Love everything about it! Yes, bluejays are beautiful but they are mean to other birds. I saw a baby bluejay trying to fly one day while I was walking. The parents were hovering nearby to keep an eye on him. So cute with his little crest on his head!


Thank you so much for your comment. It is always so nice to read them. Hugs and smiles. Eret
