Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Swirly Bird

At last week’s Card & Cuppa we once again used the very versatile Swirly Bird stamp set.

This time, we used the boat images and created this project.

Swirly Bird Stampin' Up! Card & Cuppa

We used Sponge Daubers for the Sun and Sea and Sponge Brayers for the sea and sky.  Sponge Brayers are great for creating fabulous effects really quickly.

Firstly we created our beach and then the sun from a piece of cardstock with a hole in the middle.  We then used the cut-out ‘hole’ to mask the sun before brayering the sea and sky.

As I couldn’t decide which card I preferred, I gave the attendees the choice of making a landscape or portrait card.  It was a 60/40 split.

Which is your favourite?
