Hello! Today I have several cards to share with you. On this post, I'll show you a card I made with Bonnet Birdie Stamp Set 885 and some Tonic Studios dies. 

Materials used:
Bonnet Birdie Stamp Set 885;
Gypsy Red [GM2005], Cloud Nine [GM2000], Gecko [GM2045] Microfine Glitters;
Irish Sparkle Sparkle N Soft [SS113];
Imperial Blue Flocking [FL106];
Miniature Moments Hello [1250e], Jasmine Sunset Layering Dies [1110e] Tonic Studio dies;
Mother of Pearl [804N], Cornflower Blue [806N] Nuvo Embellishment Mousse;
Limoncello Jewel Drops [644N], Ebony Black Crystal Drops [650N], Honey Gold Glitter Drops [762N];.
Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Onyx Black Versafine Ink [VF-82];
Others: Promarkers, Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Seedless Preserves, Mowed Lawn), Memento Dual Marker (Tuxedo Black), Spellbinders dies (Sprigs, Cherry Blossoms), Vellum

I placed the image from Bonnet Birdie Stamp Set inside of the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and stamped it three times to the white cardstock pieces with Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I kept the stamp in the Platform while working with the images. Some parts of the Bird was colored with Promarkers. Her body was covered with Brushable Glue and Irish Sparkle Sparkle N Soft and Imperial Blue Flocking. On the second image, I covered her hat with Brushable Glue and Gypsy Red Microfine Glitter. To color the ribbon on the third image, I used Sakura Glue Pen to adhere Gypsy Red and Cloud Nine  Microfine Glitter. After everything was dry, I placed the images, one by one, back to the Stamp Platform and stamped them over with Onyx Black Versafine Ink. That helped to bring out all the lines which were covered with glitter. Colored pieces were fussy cut and adhered on top of each other. Her eyes were covered with Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops. 

The frame around the Birdie is cut with Jasmine Sunset Layering Dies by Tonic Studio. I die-cut two frames out of white cardstock. On one of the frames, I used another die from the set and cut the decorative holes to it. Two frames have adhered together with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Tape, which peeked out from the holes, is covered with Gecko Microfine Glitter. I added a piece of Vellum to behind the frame. It mutes the background which shows through.
My card needed something more, so I took out my leftover box and found some leaves from there. I think they are die cut with Spellbinders die (Sprigs) and colored with Distress Ink (Mowed Lawn). Little flowers are cut with dies from Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms set and colored with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. In the centre of flowers, I added Honey Gold Glitter Drops. 

Word bubble is die cut with Tonic Studios Miniature Moments Hello die. I covered the word from back side with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and adhered the Imperial Blue Flocking to it from the front of the die cut. 

I made my own embossing plate to create the background. I started by die cutting 24 Hellos with Miniature Moments Hello Tonic Studios die out of cardstock. Then I adhered three words on top of each other. I prepared a piece of cardstock by drawing diagonal lines all over it and then glued the words to it. I also added two pieces of removable tape to hold the paper in place while I'll run it through the machine.

My background layer was inked with Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Broken China). I added some droplets of water on top of it for the speckled effect. Before embossing it with my self-made embossing plate, I Spritzed the water back side of the background to moist the paper. It helped with embossing. After the layer was embossed and dry, I added Mother of Pearl and Cornflower Blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousses.

Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering the background layer in center of it, I covered rest of the tape with Gecko Microfine Glitter. 

Come back later Today to see the cards made with Pretty Blooms Stamp Set 873. Yes, cards. I made one card in three different colors.
