Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Fussy Cutting Card

I put my fussy cutting skills to the test with today’s card.

The beautiful Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog has pages full of bird images perfect to be fussy cut out.

This paper is included in my Paper Share which gets you a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper – more details below.

You’ll definitely want to cut the images out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips as they’re  ideal for small, tight spaces and they’re also very sharp.

My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a Peal Pink stitched circle and then used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a scalloped circle from Whisper White cardstock.

I used Paper Snips to fussy cut out a one bigger bird image and one smaller flower image from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink.  I tied a Linen Thread Bow through a Bird Ballad Trinket and added a few Petal Pink pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls around the card.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

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.

Enjoy!
