Nesting Tip Sheet
1. The circular vine/leaves can be stamped directly onto the nest or layered over the top using the coordinating dies. There is a leaf vein detail image that you can also add, stamped in a darker color, for even more detail.
2. There is a two-step egg image included in the set. Stamp it in neutrals, or shades of blue to mimic a robin’s egg.
3. Stamp the eggs in bright spring colors and add them to the nest for a pretty Easter card.
4. The birds included in the set have three steps - the main body, breast and wing details, and the eye/beak/feet.
5. Use the rock ’n roll technique to add shading to the nest image for a realistic touch.
6. The nest can rest nicely in the curve of the large branch included in the set.
7. The two birds can also be used on the branch. This, paired with the “Love” sentiment would make a beautiful wedding or anniversary card.
8. There are several sentiments that can be built from the various words and phrases in the set, covering many different occasions. Here is a complete list:
Bless you on your special day
Bless this nest
Love builds the warmest nest
Love lives here
Welcome to the neighborhood
Welcome little one
Go ahead & fly, I’ll be here when you need to rest your wings
9. Try heat embossing the branches with white embossing powder, then using an ink blending sponge to sponge color over them to create a soft effect. Perch a bird or two on the branches for a sweet touch.
10. Use the leafy vine image without the nest as a pretty way to frame a sentiment.
11. Try tucking a small note or tag into the opening of the nest.
Finding a perfectly formed nest filled with tiny eggs is one of the joys of springtime. This pretty set includes a multi-step nest, perfect for filling with stamped eggs and sweet birds. The sentiments cover many different occasions and recipients, from babies to brides, new neighbors, and even those loved ones about to take flight for new adventures. The branches provide the perfect perch, or they can be used to stamp pretty backgrounds. Fill the nest with eggs, or even tuck a small note or tag into the opening of the nest for an interactive detail!
