Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Birthday

First things first:  The Clearance Rack has just been updated.  The prices are incredibly low on these items so they’re sure to go fast.  Check everything out here.

Now on to today’s card…

My card today starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Myths & Magic DSP to adhere on an angle over it.

Next I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I first stamped the birds from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I then stamped the branches underneath the birds.  For a few of them I had to do the masking technique.

This is where you stamp the (in this case) bird on a scrap piece of computer paper (or Post-It) and then fussy cut it out.  You lay this paper over the stamped image (again, in this case, the bird) and then you stamp the other image over it (in this case, the branch).  This gives the illusion that the branch is going behind the bird.  (See the fourth bird down and the tail of the third bird down.)

I colored in the birds using a variety of Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I wrapped around some Bermuda Bay ribbon and tied a Linen Thread bow in it.  I adhered the Whisper White cardstock down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink and adhered it also with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenges.


RETIRING LIST:

Don’t walk – run…

That is to the Retiring List – it’s now live and there’s A LOT to see!

All items EXCEPT for Stamps are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!

NOTE:  You will see ALL ink pads retiring.

WHY?  Stampin’ Up! has reformatted their ink pads.  The new ink pads are easier to open and come with a new formula that prevents bubbling on the stamps!!!

There is a color revamp coming in the Annual Catalog.  Want a sneak peek?
