Best Birds and Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies

BestBirds

 


 

What a fabulous bundle from the new Stampin’ Up! 2016 Annual Catalog!  Best Birds stamp set is combined with Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies to create a pair that you’ll just have to own!  There are so many ideas floating around in my head for this great bundle – I’m sure I’ll have more samples for you in the future.

 

  • I started out with a Sahara Sand Cardstock background and used several different colors and textures for the pop behind the image – Cucumber crush 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and a sliver of Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.
  • The sentiment and small flower are stamped in Tip Top Taupe ink and the little flower is watercolored with an Aqua Painter and Watermelon Wonder stamp pad.  Three tiny Pearls set off the center.
  • One of the hot new accessories in this catalog are the 2015-17 In Color Doilies.  Here I’ve used Delightful Dijon to set off the bird which is stamped in Tip Top Taupe on Whisper White Cardstock and watercolored with Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe stamp pads and an Aqua Painter.

I can see so many possibilities in coloring in these darling birds, but right now I’m obsessed with the beautiful music that a robin family is making in my back yard.  Nature is at its peak here in New York State, and I’m feeling the love for this bundle!

Celebrate Summer Sorbet

Summer Sorbet heart

 


 

Lots of different Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and accessories going on in this simple card.  Sometimes one set just won’t do!  Summer Sorbet is a set of really great bold images, but you’ll need to grab your sentiments elsewhere.  And who can resist using the background stamp from Best Birds on everything.  You’ll need that stamp set just for this great stamp alone!

  • My color scheme is a bit unusual for this card, although I think it works – Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Peekaboo Peach.
  • The pretty designer paper is from A Little Foxy Paper Stack.  Remember to use the plainer papers with other stamp sets – it doesn’t just coordinate with the fun Foxy Friends stamp set!
  • Love this fun-shaped heart, stamped using a Rose Red stamp pad.  Just cut it out quickly with Paper Snips and pop it up on Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment comes from Thoughtful Banners and is bundled with the Duet Banner Punch to save you 10%.  This combo will become a staple in your card designing!
  • I miss the scallop border punch like crazy.  But fear not – your Layering Squares Framelits will do the trick!  I’ve added a Peekaboo Peach Heart Enamel Shape to coordinate both with the Peekaboo Peach scallops and the heart motif.  These little shapes are so easy to use with self-adhesive backing – you’ll want them in ever color!
