Swirly Bird Card

This card was fun to make!! Again I saw the idea for this on Pinterest.

It is your basic A2 card with Whisper White cardstock for the base cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored and 4 1/4. Then I wanted to showcase all the new Stampin’ Up in- colors. Each color was cut at 1″ x 3 3/4″ except for Flirty Flamingo which was cut at 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″.  They were then adhered to another piece of Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″. I started with emerald Envy first at the bottom and worked my way up to the top.  So the next color is Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, and Flirty Flamingo. The top layer was also 4″ x 5 1/4″ using Whisper White. Using the wavy thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinklits I put it in the middle of the paper.  I ran that through the Big Shot and ended up with three separate pieces. before adhering to the card I stamped Happy Day from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set using Dapper Denim Ink on the right had side of the card. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to put the outer pieces on the card while using the Fine Tip Glue to put the middle wavy section down onto the in-colored piece.

So, to recap how to assemble the card you adhere the in- color strips to one piece of Whisper White and using Stampin’ Dimenisonals to put that piece on the front of the card. Next, you cut out the next Whisper White piece with adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the outside two pieces and adhering the wavy section using the Fine Tip Glue to the in-color paper.

Swirly BirdCard

Happy Friday!

Today’s card is one that I did in the Swirly Bird Class.  We used the Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies.

I saw this on Pinterest and just loved the color combinations.  This is a basic A2 card and the measurements are as follows:

Smoky Slate card base cut 8 1/2 x  5 1/2 scoring at 4 1/4.  Whisper White layer is 4 x 5 1/4, the  Sweet Sugarplum layer is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, and the Smoky Slate paper from the Neutrals Designer paper pad is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.

The big swirl in the middle was cut out using Basic Gray paper and one of the large Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  Then on a scrap of Whisper White we stamped the swirly flowers and leaves from Swirly Bird stamps and cut them out using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits. Inks that we used were Sweet Sugarplum, Daffodil Delight,Flirty Flamingo, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. The sentiment was stamped using Thoughtful Banners with Rich Razzleberry ink and cut out using the Duet Banner Punch.  Pearls were added in the middle of each flower.  The sentiment and the diagonal striped piece of paper were adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
