Bird Ballad - My favourite!

Today's card features my favourite suite from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and based on feedback and orders, it is my customers' favourite too!

The suite is called Bird Ballad and features the Free As A Bird stamp set, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Designer Series Paper, Scalloped Lace Trim, Laser-cut Cards and Tin and Trinkets.  I haven't used everything from the Suite on this card, but it features the stamp set, Lace Trim, trinkets and dies.

Every time I make a card using this stamp set, I'm more and more in love with it.  No matter what colour you use for the birds, they are just beautiful!


  1. Cut Crumb Cake card stock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Pool Party card stock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.
  3. Stamp the bird image on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  4. Colour the image using Stampin' Blends.  I used Crumb Cake for the birds and branch, Mango Melody for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  I added a border around the entire image using Light Pool Party.
  5. Cut the stamped image out using the 4 5/16" wide label die
  6. Stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2" x 3" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Cut a flag end in one end of the sentiment piece.
  7. Adhere the Scalloped Lace Trim (6" piece) around the edges of the embossed Pool Party card stock using Snail.
  8. Adhere the embossed card stock to the card base using Snail.
  9. Adhere the bird label using Dimensionals
  10. Adhere the sentiment using Dimensionals
  11. Adhere the trinket using Snail
