Wildflower Meadow Card #1

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Day 11 of my Hummingbird update........
Well the babies are so big now that they have just about out-grown their happy home. Check out my Spike and Gizmo.....
They really are still very tiny......but the nest is small and they have managed to fill it up completely.  Momma is doing a great job of keeping up with the feedings ...... but since they are soooooo big ... there's very little room for her on the nest. 
It's really cute to watch Momma feed Spike and Gizmo.......all you see is their little months WIDE OPEN and each taking their turn with the feeding.  This whole experience has been nothing short of a miracle!  I have an AWESOME PICTURE to share with you tomorrow that Bill took on Sunday afternoon of Momma feeding her babes. (can't wait to share that with you......)

My share today is one of the most popular cards at my Open House on Saturday.  Check this out.....
This card used the new Wildflower Meadow Stamp Set and the coordinating Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder.
The sentiment is from the Bloomin' With Kindness set and I stamped it in Soft Suede.
The magic of this set is you stamp the Wildflower Meadow image onto Whisper White card Stock (I used Bake Brown Sugar).......and then you run that stamped image through the embossing folder and WOW.....You have this amazing a very detailed embossed image.
I added some 7/16" Natural Trim Ribbon around the bottom portion of my card and that gave me the little something something I was looking for.
Here's one last look at the amazing and gorgeous detail that is picked up when you run your Whisper White panel through the embossing folder. 
This has to be one of my FAVORITE bundles that Stampin' UP! is offering in our new catalog ...... and I would STRONGLY SUGGEST that you give these two items a second look when your flipping through the new catalog.  YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
I'll be back tomorrow to share four other samples that I made with the Wildflower Meadow stamp set.  Hope you can make plans to come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. Gorgeous card, and I'm still loving those baby hummers. We are in a second floor apartment, and I miss bird watching.

  2. the combination of baked brown sugar and white is striking. coordinates with your hummers!

  3. That embossing folder is the coolest idea! So fun to emboss a stamped image! I'm going to Love Baked Brown Sugar!!

  4. With a picture of the hummers from a different angle, you can almost tell how small that nest really is. I wonder what it is made out of as I don't see the normal sticks and twigs like other birds use for a nest. And, it is not the normal brown color. It is almost like a blondish color. They sure are filling it up and getting big. You would think they would get a neck ache from holding their heads up all the time. =) Mary's comment is funny! Such a hoot!

    I think I am going to like all the In-Colors. I love the matching embossing folder. Very elegant card. Thank you so much for sharing!
