Whimsy Wednesday ~ Hello Hummingbird

Hey there lovelies, I'm back again as promised with another Whimsy Wednesday Inspiration post. I've been playing with those gorgeous Hummingbird papers again. I couldn't resist doing another creation with that lovely paper. I used some green ink around the edge to finish the paper edges before sticking down the paper to create my CAS design for this week. 

I've used a lovely Chipboard Element from Make It Crafty to embellish this card. Did you know you can buy these Make it Crafty Chipboard Elements from Whimsy Stamps? There are lots of wonderful extra elements available at Whimsy Stamps, so be sure to click on their 'Supplies' button when you next go shopping to check out those fab extras. 

I coloured the base of the words in a lovely soft green, to tone in with the hues in the beautiful paper. I've glued the two seperate parts together with a light coat of Olba glue and then adhered it to the paper the same way. I've used Nuvo Drops to create the water droplets around the sentiment and in the card corners. Just a little bit of texture and interest on an otherwise very CAS card. Below you see better the dimension the chipboard element adds. 

Thanks for popping into my blog, I hope you enjoyed your visit. I'll be back before long with another Whimsy Stamps crafty adventure. I've been busy working on the June New Release creations, so I'm really excited to share what's coming up! Ooh you're so gonna LOVE this next release. I'm bursting to share what I've been working on! In the meantime, I need to get cracking creating my hubby's birthday card and one for my darling sis who had her baby a few weeks ago. They share their birthday ~ May 26th, so we will be having a double celebration for them both this weekend. Quite a special one for my sis, her first birthday as a mummy and it's her big '4-0'! So we're putting our party hats on this weekend. (Just between you and me, a special one for my hubby too, as it's his last year of being in his 40's!)

For a closer peek at the lovely elements I've used to create this card, just click through on the thumbnails below to be taken straight to the store. Check out the full May Release by clicking here for the Rubber Stamps and dies or here for the Digital Release. Hugs and happy crafting! xoxo
