Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Congratulations Card

I recently had to make a congratulations card for a team member and decided to use the gorgeous new Bird Ballad Suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

It includes the Free As A Bird Stamp Set, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The Bird Ballad DSP is gorgeous!!  It’s included, along with all the other new DSP, in my Product Share.  For more details on my Product Share, check below.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Bird Ballad DSP on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the bird image from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using Petal Pink (birds), Pool Party (leaves), Poppy Parade (flowers), and Crumb Cake (branch) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the new (and in my opinion, must-have) Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Little Elephant Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Poppy Parade cardstock.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.


The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is pretty amazing and filled with lots of new goodies.

To help you get your hands on all the new Designer Series Paper and Ribbons & Embellishments (without having to buy one of each), I’ve set up a product share.

How it works is I buy one of everything, cut it up, and repackage it in individually wrapped and labeled for you.  I have a number of options, including some with free shipping and free product.
