Birdcage Card with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and Hampton Arts

Challenge #5 Pick a Stamp, Any Stamp is the challenge that starts today on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog!!!! Our sponsor for this month is Hampton Arts maker of stamps for 7 Gypsies, Jillibean Soup, Jinger Adams, Bella Blvd, Kelly Panacci, Authentique, Doodlebug Design, Spellbinders, Diffusion, Art Warehouse, Ditto, Outlines, Hot Fudge Studio, Graphic 45, Gloria Stengel Designs to mention a few. To get my card ready for all my wonderful stamped pieces I first layered all the pretty KI Berry Blast papers that I had distressed using my distress tool to the top of my Kraft card base.
I used the Hot fudge Studio Stamp Set from Hampton Arts along with Versamark and Chestnut Embossing Powder to emboss my birdcage. Once embossed I fussy cut it out placing it on my card front over the embossed paper that I made using my Tim Holtz embossing folder.
My border is stamped with Artsy Edges Stamp Set from Hampton Arts and embossed with Versamark and Seafoam Embossing Powder, fussy cut out and placed as a border on the front of my card. I added roses I inked with Broken China Distress Ink, a White Bow and small leaves I cut using my Silhouette.
To create the bird, stamp the bird from the Hot Fudge Studio Stamp Set twice on a piece of the KI Berry Blast Paper with Stonewashed Adirondack Ink, fussy cut them both out, layer one to the other and adhere to the front of the card. I hope you enjoyed my card using some of my hoards of stamps and play along with us on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog by linking up your projects using Mr. Linky and making sure to check out the rules HERE before you link up your projects....for more inspiration check out the rest of the CHACB Design Team...Hugs Pammejo
