Bird Frame CAS cards with Carmen's Veranda

Hello Everyone,
I made two more cards with the Bird Frame Stamp from Carmen's Veranda Stamps.  

Stamp: Bird Square from Carmen's Veranda Stamps
Ink: Black; Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, and Vintage Photo Distress ink
Paper: Mixed Media pad from Strathmore
CS: Blush Blossom, Cool Caribbean from Stampin' Up;  Cream; White
Bakers Twine


  • Make card from white or cream CS 
  • On mixed media paper, spray a very small amount of water
  • Ink the stamp with Tumbled Glass or Spun Sugar distress ink and stamp into the water on the mixed media paper
  • Heat dry the paper--make sure it is very dry before proceeding--I had to blot a little with a rag
  • Ink the stamp again with black ink and stamp directly over the fist stamping
  • Distress with Distress inks
  • Add the Baker's Twine and add to card base

See the other two cards made with this stamp here.  I really like the look of the top edge of the mixed media paper torn from the pad.  Adds a nice detail.
