Welcome to the Pals’ June Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Winged creatures are a favorite subject matter of mine, and I couldn’t wait to share ways to use the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.
It’s hard to beat white as a background, because it makes all the other colors pop. I embossed Whisper White Cardstock with Layered Leaves embossing, and glued this layer to a Thick Whisper White card base.
I located three, pretty, birds on a sheet of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper that I was able to cut with a Stitched Nested Label Die, without including any surrounding birds. By choosing the right die and birds, there’s quite a few possibilities.
Next, I used my favorite Seasonal Layers die to cut a branch from Soft Suede Cardstock.
After cutting the branch in half, and planning how it would look beneath the bird’s hexagon, I glued it in place. It’s positioned to look like it’s attached to the branch in the DSP at the bottom, and the top is part of the tree. I fussy cut some leaves and blossoms from the DSP to add to the branch.
The sentiment, “We’re the best of friends,” is from the Free As A Bird stamp set, which I stamped in Soft Suede ink, and cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die.
I loved this idea so much, I quickly made a second card.
I chose birds from a different location on the Designer Series Paper, and gave them a background of Petal Pink, Bird Ballad DSP. This is the backside of the bird print.
The same Stitched Nested Labels Die was used for cutting the birds, and a Rectangle Stitched Die was used for the background DSP.
The card base is Sahara Sand, as well as the Seasonal Layers branch. This time I left the branch in one piece.
“Hello” is another sentiment from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set, and I used the Classic Label Punch for cutting.
I thought the dotted DSP called for some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, as a finishing touch.

You did a wonderful job framing the birds for beautiful cards! The tree branch from seasonal layers looks like to belongs with that bundle. 🙂
Both cards are wonderful, Su !!! A great way to showcase the bird ballad suite without the intimidation of coloring the birds too! I will be CASE’ing this card for my friends!! Thanks for sharing!!
Fantastic showcase Su! My favorite is #1 the birds against your white, embossed background is beautiful.
I really like your cards…there’s simplicity with a touch of eloquence.
Love your coloring of the birds
So pretty! This embossing folder is one of my favorites and so appropriate for the birds on the branch.
Such pretty cards, Su! Love how you were able to find just the right birds on the DSP for each one. The rest of the details are wonderful. Love it!
Both cards are awesome. What a great way to show different looks with the DSP! This is my favorite new paper!
