Balmy Blue Nested Friends Bird Card

Balmy Blue Nested Friends Bird Card

Welcome to week ten of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!

This week we are showcasing Balmy Blue, which is a really lovely soft blue. My card is a CASE (copy and selectively edit) of these gorgeous Nested Friends cards, created by an amazing Dutch Stampin’ Up! Artisan design design team member, Berdien Weideveld.

Many of the products Berdien used on these cards have now retired, so I’ve merged the layouts of both the cards, switched the layout from vertical to horizontal and used current products for my Nested Friends card.

Old Olive and Early Espresso cardstock replaces retired colours Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede. Flower dies from Around the Bend dies replace Berdien’s fussy cut flowers and my Balmy Blue DSP is from the current Subtles DSP 6×6 assortment pack.

Instead of the now retired frond and branch dies Berdien used, I’ve used the nest and leaf dies included in the Nested Friends dies, using my paper snips to chop up the nest to make branches.

As the brick embossing folder has also retired, I instead used the crosshatch embossing folder from the online exclusive Basics 3D Embossing Folders pack.

At the centre of the flowers I’ve popped a few of the brown Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins for a touch of sparkle.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!
