For my last post of May, I’m showing you another way to use the new Birds & Branches Bundle. This circle die is truly amazing! Just use it to cut through the card front for a “peek-a-boo” card.

The card base is our new Just Jade color. Isn’t it pretty? And, the great news is, you get to order it June 3rd! That’s when our 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live, meaning we all get to order everything we love from the new catalog! You can see details of this bundle in my Product List below.

After cutting the circle, I used a second fabulous die in the set to cut the edge. Can you imagine the fun you’ll have with this die?!


I created the pretty bird by stamping her in Mango Melody Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cutting with a third die in the set. I glued her to the bottom of the circle, and backed her with a plain white die-cut on the back for support.

Next, I used a fourth die in the set to cut some extra branches from Just Jade Cardstock to surround the circle, adding foliage for the bird. 

And, I completed the card front with a few, little Pearls.


The inside has “happy birthday” from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink.

TIP: I made sure the sentiment was in the right spot before stamping, because of the “peek-a-boo” circle.


I’m really excited about the coming month of June. I love the warm, summer days with long daylight hours. And, I love what Stampin’ Up! has in store for us!  Come back tomorrow when I’ll announce the winner of May’s drawing for the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and Small Bloom Punch.

Plus, you’ll get to see June’s Host Code gift and the stamp set for June’s drawing.


Thanks for visiting me today. Bye bye May, hello June! See you tomorrow!
