Today’s card is another sneak peek of new products available this Thursday on January 4th! I used the Thoughtful Expressions Bundle #162822 which includes the Thoughtful Expressions stamp set and Thoughtful Expressions Dies. I also used the Softly Sophisticated Bundle #162947 which includes the Softly Sophisticated stamp set and the Softly Sophisticated 3D Embossing Folder. This Bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!! 

I’ve shared two other cards using this layout and you can see them here and here BUT please note that I did change some of the measurements and I didn’t add the extra piece of Designer Series Paper. 




I started with a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock for the base of my card (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). Then I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder (free with a $100 purchase during Saleabration) and adhered it to the front of the card. I cut another piece of Basic White cardstock and embossed it with the same embossing folder and then adhered it to another piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock. Then, I added it to the front of the card. 



I stamped the hummingbird from the Thoughtful Expressions stamp set in Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock. Then I colored the hummingbird using the following Stampin’ Blends: 

Body: Dark Parakeet Party & Light Azure Afternoon (I laid down the Parakeet Party first and then blended Azure Afternoon into it).

Wings: Dark and Light Boho Blue

After coloring the hummingbird, I cut him out with the Thoughtful Expressions Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 



I stamped the sentiment in Orchid Oasis ink onto Basic White cardstock using the Thoughtful Expressions stamp set and then cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies. I cut the same shape, but larger out of Orchid Oasis cardstock, adhered the sentiment to the front and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back (only on the part that would be on the same piece as the hummingbird) and adhered it to the card front. 



To complete my card, I added three Tinsel Gems around the hummingbird and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
