Humming Along Meets Wink of Stella

Hello and welcome to the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop.  You may have just come from Jenny Hayward.  Great project, right!

My name is Jo Anne Hewins and I'm from the United States.   For this hop, we feature the same stamp sets that used in the tutorial!  That gives you extra ideas to use with the tutorial!  I'll be using the Humming Along stamp set and an idea shared by Wendy Cranford using Wink of Stella.

Humming Along and Wink of Stella by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Bermuda Bay.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold.  Stamp over the front of the card with the large hibiscus stamp.  I stamped in Bermuda Bay and stamped off so the image would not be as dark.  This is from the Humming Along stamp set.

A strip of Melon Mambo paper measuring 1 x 5 1/2 is added just below the midline of the card.  This is from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.

Stamp the hummingbird in Tuxedo Memento Black on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Stamparatus to stamp to make sure that my image is dark and crisp.  Color in the hummingbird using Watercolor Pencils.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo.  Go over the sections with the Wink of Stella.  This will smooth out the coloring and add a little dazzle.  Between colors rub the Wink of Stella on scrap paper to get out the color from before.

Cut out the bird with the Hummingbird Framelits.

The sentiment for this card is from the Birthday Cheer stamp set.  Stamp in Melon Mambo.  Once again I did use the Stamparatus for my stamping.  Cut this out with the Stitched Shapes largest oval.

Add the saying and the bird with dimensionals. 

Add some of the Melon Mambo Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Here is the inside of my card.  I used a piece of Whisper White that is 4 x 5 1/4.  Add a 1/4 inch strip of the Melon Mambo How Sweet It Is DSP.  Next add a piece of Bermuda Bay with the hibiscus stamped off.  This piece measures 1 1/4 x 4.  the saying is from the Birthday Cheer stamp set.
