(Video) Stretching Your Holiday Supplies For Tropical Cards | Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello, everyone and happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I’ll be sharing an idea to stretch your holiday stamps to create a tropical feel. I’ll be using the ever-so-cute Season’s Tweetings Stamp & Die Set for today’s card.

So, when is a cardinal not a cardinal? When it’s a tropical bird of many colors, that’s when. I have to say I really love how this turned out. I stamped the birds from Season’s Tweetings Stamp Set in a variety of colors, skipping the face part of the stamp to give these a more versatile look.

For the background I used the branch from Season’s Tweetings Stamp Set but mixed in some tropical leaves from Forever Ferns Stamp Set. It’s a really quick and simple background to do, but I love that it looks as though the flock of birds is perched in the forest canopy.

The sentiment is from Holiday Tag Sentiments Stamp Set.

For a video to see how this card came together, please watch the video below. Or head over to YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this post gave you some great ideas for stretching your holiday supplies to use all year-round!

OK, why didn’t I think of using a cardinal stamp to make different color birds? Guess that’s why I need you to keep me straight. This would make a great “thinking of you” card with the pastel colors. Love it!
