A Wish For You

Good Wednesday, friends. Mindy with you to share my card for this weeks challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such. The theme this week is to use the inspiration photo and add a hummingbird.

I started with one of the new dies from Spellbinders titled, Fleur de Elegance and cut it twice from white card stock. I trimmed and folded down one die cut, and adhered it at the top and made a shaped card using the full die image as the base of my card. I then cut an oval from the Romance Paper Bloc by Joy! Crafts and adhered it to the base before building my flower stem and hummingbird.

The hummingbird was formed from a die in my stash from Dee's Distinctively, and colored with my markers. I then used one of the Build a Flower dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, also in my stash to build the powder puff flower the bird is feeding from. Both of these die sets are no longer available in the Classy Cards shop, but there are other die sets available that will give you the same feel to this card.

 The sentiment frame, also from the Fleur de Elegance die, was stamped with a greeting from the Mums Stamp Set from JustRite Stamps, then edged with adhesive backed pearls from Sleek Strips Pearls- Le Creme from Want2Scrap.  The pearls in this set comes in two sizes, so I used the smaller ones on the sentiment die and the larger ones at the top and bottom of the card base die.

Have a happy stamping day, and don't forget to participate in our weekly challenge for a chance to win a wonderful prize.


  1. Love your card Mindy!!! So very pretty, and I have been waiting to see which die the humming bird is one of the prettiest and realistic ones I have seen! Not that I need another HB die...but I just love this one!! Beautiful and creative flower too, a wonderful interpretation of the challenge!!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous, Mindy!! I love the beautiful hummingbird - I'm watching one on a feeder outside my window right now!! The dies you used are so fabulous!! That Spellbinders base die is now on my wish list!! Love this my friend!! Have a great day :)

  3. I love it!, it flows together so well. The 3D flowers with the hummer sticking it's bill into the flowers is so realistic. I almost feel as if I'm getting a secret look at the hummer through a window or reflected in a mirror with the lovely background!
