This card was “quick & easy” with the Free As A Bird Stamp Set. I have birds on my mind, because I’ll be receiving the new bird stamp set with dies from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog tomorrow. If you like birds, you will love it, and I can’t wait to give you a sneak peek as soon as possible!

Framed Birds


I began today’s card by stamping the bird image in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green & Light and Dark Pool Party. A Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write marker was used to color the flowers. 


After coloring, I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, which gave the birds a pretty frame. Don’t you think?


To add some texture to the Thick Whisper White card base, I embossed the card front with the Scripty Embossing Folder.

“Thank you” is from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink.


I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.
