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?
Check out yesterday’s blog post here.

Stampin’ Up! is doing a whole color revamp in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!!!!

They are discontinuing 13 colors, as well as the 5 retiring 2016-2018 In-Colors.

The new color collections will feature new and returning colors.

In order to get your hands on all the new/returning colors, I’ll be offering a Color Revamp Share. Check back early June for more details or click on the option in the menu above to get my newsletter and be the first to hear about the share!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter – GDP#132

I love Stampin Up’s Designer Series Paper.  It’s one of the first things I ever purchased.

It’s really high quality and I love that the packaging tells you what colors are used.  I’m a little OCD and I love that it makes creating a matchy-matchy card so easy!

The cloud pattern comes from the Myths & Magic DSP and is so fun.  It really could be used for so many images – rainbows, birds, scenery – the “skies” the limit…did you see what I did there?! 😉

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I layered with that fun cloud pattern from the Myths & Magic DSP.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the branch and the two birds from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using the Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and a tiny bit of Light Bermuda Bay (for the center of the flowers) Stampin’ Blends markers.  I matted this on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  adhered the cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink and added a few Glitter Epoxy Shapes around it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge which is a CASE (copy and selectively edit) the Designer challenge.  I was definitely inspired by the colors in Stesha’s card, as well as how everything was tucked into one corner.

Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Birthday

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times.  I’m such a sucker for punny sentiments.

It’s for that reason that Bird Banter Stamp Set immediately caught my eye in the Occasions Catalog!

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, which is FREE and available right now through March 31st with a qualifying order!

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the branch, leaves, bird, and balloon from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral Stampin Blends Markers.  I adhered this on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and then onto the card front.

I stamped the balloon on a separate piece of Whisper White, colored it in using Calypso Coral Stampin Blends, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampi Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment (which I LOVE) on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock in Memento Black ink and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Card

Hello my name is Jaimie and I am such a sucker for a cute sentiment.

Honestly, because of this, it was only a matter of time before I bought the Bird Banter Stamp Set.

I started my card with Pool Party cardstock.  I then cut out a pattern from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP to adhere over the card front.  Next I took a smaller panel of Pool Party cardstock and stamped across the front of it the flower image from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Ink.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the branch and bird image from th Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral Stampin Blend Markers.  I cut this out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I wound around the inner piece of cardstock some Pool Party Baker’s Twine in a bow.  Then I stamped the sentiment on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.
