Best Birds

For the next few weeks I'm featuring stamp sets and other products that will be retiring at the end of May.

Today, I've used the Best Birds stamp set.  I love to colour so I used the Stampin' Blends to colour in this sweet little bird as well as the Pearlized Doily.  You can colour on the back side of the doily with the Stampin' Blends to coordinate perfectly with your card.  In this case I used Granny Apple Green.

A little bit of Wink of Stella on the bird adds a little bit of bling!

I'm very sad that this stamp set is retiring when the new Annual Catalogue is released in June.  Now is the time to get yours if it is gone!  

Here's the instructions so that you can make this card for your self.


  1. Cut Thick Whisper White card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score in half to make card base.
  2. Cut a piece of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper - I used the Vellum to 3" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the card base using Snail.
  3. Stamp the bird image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  4. Colour the bird image using Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody Stampin' Blends. (TIP - I always start with the lightest colour, in this case Light Crumb Cake and colour the whole image.  Then go in and add darker colours and go over them to blend with the Light colour again).
  5. Cut out using the coordinating bird Framelits using your Big Shot.
  6. Colour the back side of the Pearlized Doily using the dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend.
  7. Adhere to the card base using Snail.
  8. Adhere bird image using Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp the sentiment using Fresh Fig ink on a 3 1/4" x 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.
  10. Adhere to a 3 1/2" x 3/4" piece of Fresh Fig card stock.
  11. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Adhere pink flower embellishment.
