Ghosting with Swirly Birds

I cased this card from a fellow demonstrator. Sue Vine, you can see her original card here.

It was a LOT of work.. but as you can see it was totally worth all the work that was put in.


It started with stamping everything with craft whisper white ink ( item# 101731 $10.75) on Crumb cake cardstock. (item#120953 $10.00) I cut it at 5.25″x4″ because I knew I was going to put it on a card base. The craft ink does not dry quickly like Stampin’ Up’s regular classic ink so all these stamped items had to be set aside to dry.

After the white ink dried I stamped again over the white ink and off a tiny bit to create the white shadow. I used sweet sugarplum (item# 141395 $8.50), perfect plum (item#126963 $8.50), elegant eggplant (item#126969 $8.50), garden green (item#126973 $8.50)and wild wasabi (item# 126959 $8.50) ink.


If it’s not a kid then it’s this cat, but I always have some company in the craft room.

I popped a few of the little flowers on dimensionals (item# 104430 $5.35) and adhered the rest with mini glue dots (item# 103683 $7.00) I also added the bee and the tiny dragonfly from Detailed dragonfly thinlit dies (item# 142749 $41.00) cut out of basic black cardstock ( item#121045 $10.00) The flowers are from Swirly birds stampset (item# 141749 $31.00) with coordinating framelits Swirly scribbles thinlit dies (item# 141497 $35.00)  The card base is Elegant eggplant cut at 5.5″ and scored at 4.25″ (item# 105126 $10.00)

This card is really beautiful and I love the added bees and dragonflies, it was a really fun card to make, but I don’t think I’d do it again too soon, or make as many. That was a lot of running of the Big Shot (item# 143263 $136.00)
