I started with the layers before I got to my stamped and colored panel. I cut a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of Petal Pink Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White Card Stock panel. I added a 1-1/2" by 5" strip of Pool Party Bird Ballad DSP across the middle. I almost stopped there, it was so pretty!
Next, I cut a Whisper White Card Stock rectangle with a Stitched Rectangle Die. I stamped a sentiment from the "Free as a Bird" stamp set in Pool Party Ink onto the bottom corner. Next, I stamped the birds and branch image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the birds with Light Balmy Blue and Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends. The leaves are colored with Light Old Olive, the flowers with Light and Dark Petal Pink, and the branch with Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I tied on a length of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon before adhering everything to a Pool Party Card Stock card base. Gosh that's pretty, don't you think?
And now a word from our sponsor. Stampin' Up has TWO amazing promotions going on right now. The first is July Bonus Days: for every $50 you spend before July 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used August 1–31. How cool is that?
The second promotion gives you Extra, Extra Stampin' Up merchandise when you join my team during July or August. The cost of the new demonstrator starter kit is $99--but from now until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30--which means you can put $155 of any Stampin' Up merch you'd like in your new demonstrator starter kit. And the month after you sign up, you’ll receive a $10 coupon code to spend the following month.
Contact me today for details about either of these offers!
