Thinking of You - Nature Walk

I've been working on the cards that will be made at my Occasions Mini Stamp-A-Stack next month, and this is going to be one of them. I CASEd this card from someone, but I can't for the life of me remember who. I've been searching online, but I haven't been able to find her.

The stamp set I used is Nature Walk (p. 27 in Occasions Mini). I stamped the birdcage and used a marker to draw the cords to make it look like it was hanging on something. The flowers were inked with markers, and I stamped them two or three times before reinking. I "stamped off" the bees before stamping them on the card. Stamping off is when you ink up a stamp, stamp it on a scrap piece of paper, and then onto the project. It gives the image a soft look. I then sponged the edges of the piece with Pear Pizzazz ink.

The greeting was punched out with the Designer Label Punch (p. 30 in the Occasions Mini), and then sponged with the Pear Pizzazz ink as well. I punched another label out of Pear Pizzazz card stock. I cut the shape in half, and attached one piece to the top, back of the greeting, and the other half to the bottom, back of the greeting. I tied on the Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon (p. 16 in Occasions Mini), and then attached the greeting piece over it with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 197 in big catty).
