Birds & Branches

If you like birds, you’ll LOVE the Birds & Branches Bundle! I have the bundle pictured in my Product List below, and I’m not even showing the stamp set and die set separately, because you really need both. Plus, the bundle gives you a 10% savings.

Today’s card is monochromatic, with the exception of the flowers.

Birds & Triangles

 

 

Instructions

Cut Gray Granite Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your card base.

Creating the triangles is a bit tricky. Cut a piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper a “smidge” smaller than the card front, so, 1/16th” smaller than 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. Using your Paper Trimmer, line up the points with the track, and slice it from corner to corner.

Turn the paper, holding the halves together, line up the points, and make a second cut. It should look like this.

Glue the top and bottom triangles to the card front. Save the other two pieces for another card. Pretty cool, huh?

Stamp the two birds from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, and cut with the Birds & More Dies. Also, stamp the feet for the bottom bird, cut with the die, and glue to his backside.

Place two Dimensionals on each bird.

 

Use the Birds & More Die to cut the branch from Gray Granite Cardstock. Before gluing the branch to the card front, glue the top bird to that one leaf, then remove the Dimensional backings, and attach the branch and one bird. Then, you can attach the bottom bird.

 

The pretty flower is also from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set. Stamp three flowers in Rococo  Rose (I “stamped off” for a lighter shade) on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Birds & More Die. Attach with Dimensionals, and add Woven Threads Sequins to the centers.

The sentiment is from our other great bird set, Free As A Bird. Stamp “thank you” in Gray Granite Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

 

My inspiration was Freshly Made Sketches.

Prized Peony For The Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

 

Can’t you see a garden filled with gorgeous peonies? Today’s “thank you” card has step-by-step  instructions, plus my supplies in the Product List below. Enjoy!

                                                                                            Step-by-Step Instructions

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your card base.

Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Prior to gluing the embossed layer to the card base, tape a strand of Linen Thread to the back, positioned as shown.

 

Cut a panel 2 1/4″ X 5 1/4″ from Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Crumb Cake, and glue in the center of the embossed layer.

Cut a second panel 2″ X 5 1/4″ from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, trim the sides using a Peony Die, and glue in the center of the Designer Paper.

 

Stamp the peony, from the Prized Peony Stamp Set, in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock. Sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

Color with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, which is SO MUCH FUN! The embossing keeps the color within the lines, which you’ll have to try to see what I mean. Use the darker Stampin’ Blends to add definition to the petals. After cutting with the Peony Die, place the flower on Dimensionals.

Stamp three leaves in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with Peony Dies, and glue in place.

 

Using a Forever Flourishing Die, cut the sprig from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and glue in place.

“Thank you” is from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink, and fussy cut. This means I used Paper Snips to cut by hand. Glue the “k” to the flower, and attach the remainder with Dimensionals to be the same level as the flower.

Add a few Woven Threads Sequins (white tone), and your card is complete.

 

Thanks so much for visiting me today. I wish you a garden filled with peonies!

Product List

You’re the G.O.A.T.

Who knew that calling someone a goat was a compliment? Being called a G.O.A.T. is actually a “super duper” compliment! Don’t miss what’s in the parentheses.

Also, I used my July Host Code gift on today’s card. See if you can guess what it is.

By Su Mohr for TGIF and Fab Fri; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Way To Goat Stamp Set, Ornate Layers Dies, Forever Flourishing Dies, Square Vellum Doilies; #waytogoat #stampinblends #foreverflourishing #ornatelayers #goats #goatsoncards #humorouscards #greatestofalltime #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting                                                                                              G.O.A.T.

 

Today’s Step-by-Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Use the largest Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock.  Emboss with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder, and adhere to the card base.

 

Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black Ink onThick Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the smaller Ornate Layers Die. Stamp toward the left side, leaving room for the goat.

Cut a 1″ section from a Square Vellum Doily, color it with the Dark Mango Stampin’ Blend, and glue it to the back of the sentiment label. Attach Dimensionals for later placement.

 

Stamp the goat from the Way To Goat Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and color with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. Hand cut with scissors, or use a die for cutting a simple square or circle to surround him.

Glue the goat on the end of the sentiment label.

Cut two pieces of foliage with Forever Flourishing Dies from Whisper White Cardstock. Using Sponge Daubers and Ink Pads, color one Granny Apple Green, and the other Flirty Flamingo. Trim the bottoms to a proper fit, and glue to the card base, leaving the tops free.

Attach the sentiment with goat, and you are done!

 

My layout was inspired by Fab Friday.

And, my colors were inspired by TGIF.
