Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - May

Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm participating in Kylie's Demonstrator Blog Hop with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Using the links at the bottom of my blog, you'll be able to "hop around the world" and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.  You are currently visiting Melva Peters from Ladysmith on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.  Please take some time to check out all of the blogs on the list below!

My card today features one of the amazing new Suites from the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue - Bird Ballad.  This suite is so pretty.  I hope you enjoy the Sneak Peek!  You'll be able to order this Stampset and Suite starting June 4th.

For this card, I stamped the bird image 3 times on Whisper White card stock and coloured it with Stampin' Blends markers.  Then I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to cut out different parts of the image.  Isn't this card so pretty!


  1. Fold Pool Party card stock (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") in half to form card base.
  2. Stamp the bird image 3 times using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  3. Colour the images using Petal Pink, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.
    1. For the birds, I used Light and Dark Petal Pink and Dark Crumb Cake
    2. For the tree, I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake
    3. For the leaves, I used Light and Dark Old Olive
    4. For the flowers, I used Light and Dark Calypso Coral
  4. Cut 3 different sections from the coloured images using the small rectangle framelit (1 3/16" x 1 11/16")
  5. Adhere each of these sections to a piece of Petal Pink card stock (1 15/16" x 1 6/16") using Snail
  6. Emboss a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Pool Party card stock using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and your Big Shot
  7. Adhere the coloured images to the embossed card stock - approximately a 1/4" from the top.  (Tip:  I adhere the middle image first in the centre and then align the other two images on either side) using Dimensionals
  8. Wrap a piece of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim around the embossed card stock and adhere with Snail
  9. Tie a bow using a small piece of the Lace Trim.  
  10. Attach 2 Bird Ballad Trinkets to a piece of Linen Thread and tie through the bow of the Lace Bow in a Bow
  11. Stamp the sentiment on a 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere under the Lace Trim using a Glue Dot.
  12. Adhere the embossed front to the card base using Snail
  13. Stamp the left hand side of the bird image on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Colour with Stampin' Blends.
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card.
If you live in Canada, I would love to be your demonstrator!  You'll be able to order the supplies to make this card as of June 4th when the new catalogue is released.  If you live in Canada and would like to receive a copy of the Catalogue and you don't have a demonstrator, please email me to request a copy.
