Free As A Bird

bird banterwm

I love this Bird Ballad Suite in the new annual Stampin’ Up catalog.  The stamp set that goes with it is Free As A Bird, and the Bird Ballad DSP paper is what I chose to use, as well as the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Directions to make it:

Pool Party cardstock (CS) measures 8 x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

DSP paper measures 5 1/4″ x 4″

scrap of Whisper White CS to cut out the label

Memento Tuxcedo black ink to stamp the sentiment with

1/8″ Whisper White ribbon (retired)

Steps to put it together:

  • Score Pool Party CS
  • adhere ribbon to DSP paper before putting it on the CS
  • adhere the DSP paper to the front of card
  • using a die cutting machine cut out the label and then stamp the sentiment on it
  • adhere to the card using stampin dimensionals
  • You may want to stamp a bird inside the card, but it is only opitonal.

Bee Thankful

20190518_153946.jpg

This was done using the Bee Thankful stamp set.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxcedo Black ink and than colored it in using Night of Navy Stampin Blends taking turns using the light and dark for every other letter.  Next I colored in the bee using Pineapple punch Stampin Blends as well as Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends for the leaves.  I used the retired 6×6 Neutral pack of dsp paper in Night of Navy as I made these before the paper retired.  I also used the Night of Navy Stampin Blends to color the clear rhinestones to match the card.
