Christmas in July 2022 – Day 3

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 3 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using products sent to me by Penny Black.

When I saw the sketch, I thought of the beautiful bird in the Nestled die set (51-722) so I pulled it out and got to work. I have to confess I coloured him a few times first with distress inks and then with my beloved Twinkling H2Os. In the end I chose to use the one coloured with Twinklings. I used a couple of Distress Oxide inks to create a background strip and added a couple of the branches from the Nestled set before adhering the bird to the card base.

To complete my card I used a sentiment from the Hearts Come Home mini stamp set (30-849).

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. What a gorgeous bird and I love the delicate sprigs and soft colors behind him! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.


  2. Beautiful bird and coloured so well! I have Twinkling H2O’s that I’ve had for at least 15+ years and I really should pull them out and put them to use. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
