Elegant Hummingbird and Flowers


Hey there and happy Friday! Today I’m popping in to share a card using a combination of the gorgeous Poppies Pocket by Spellbinders and the beautiful Hummingbirds stamp set by Hero Arts.

The Spellbinders Poppies Pocket die is just so darn pretty and detailed, that you could really go all out with it (there’s some amazing examples of this already!). I decided to keep it simple though, because I just loved how it looked in white.

Like this project? Pin it and save for later!

I stamped the Repeating Flower background on cloud cardstock with Unicorn ink, and then layered the die cut on top. Because of the white, it’s hard to see the dry embossing details in the pics, but so pretty in real life.

I layered the card with a hummingbird that I had leftover from THIS blog post. Even though the red bled on the top of this little guys head, I am not someone who goes to the trouble of coloring something and throws it away, if at all salvageable lol.


The bird was heat embossed with black detail powder and colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I used colors 20, 32, 51, 53, 58, 31, and 43. You can watch how below or on my Youtube channel.

If you liked this video, please give it a big thumbs up and share with a friend! Leave a comment too – I always love hearing from you!

Finally, a sentiment from Color Layering Fuchsia, heat embossed in white on black cardstock, finishes off the card. I love how detailed this card looks, when really, the most “difficult” part is coloring the hummingbird, and even that’s a breeze!

Good news! The Hummingbird stamp set is now back in stock at Hero Arts! So grab yours now in case they sell out quickly again. 😉

Thanks for stopping in today and God bless!

  1. Your card is beautiful. I love hummingbirds. I have a tattoo of one on my back shoulder. We hang hummingbird feeders out. They should be showing up pretty soon in our neck of the woods. Your painting of the beautiful bird is wonderful and the die cut flower is perfect and having just plain really makes the bird stand out.

  2. WOW Clare, this is amazing! I loved the video it is very informative and I learned a great deal. I am so glad I am not the only one who doesn’t waste scraps! (My friend makes fun of me for keeping the smaller ones but I , unlike her, do not have an income so I save where I can. Besides, why buy that stuff twice when there is so much else I want? Right?) LOL
    Is this beautiful hummingbird one of your designs? BTW, I like the yellow/orange background best for this one too.
