I couldn’t resist joining in the fun with The Paper Player’s theme challenge this week; birds. I especially liked the play on words, Happy “bird” day.


In this situation, alphabet lettering comes in handy, because it allows you to say exactly what you need to say. I put the Alphabest Bundle to work by stamping and punching the letters. First, I stamped twelve outlines, and one leaf pattern, in Balmy Blue Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Second, I cut the labels with the Best Label Punch. Third, I stamped h-a-p-p-y-b-i-r-d-d-a-y in Memento Black Ink within the outlines, and placed each letter on two Mini Dimensionals.

“Bird-day” was a tight fit, but by having the letters touch, it helped keep the word straight.

Happy “bird” day


The birds, from the Pretty Birds Stamp Set, were stamped in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. They were colored with Parakeet Party Ink with a “two-step” stamp from the stamp set, which I lined up with my Stamparatus. Then, I colored their beaks with a Mango Melody Marker, and the branch with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. After coloring, I used the Heart Punch Pack for cutting the birds, and the Balmy Blue, scalloped heart.


For the background, I embossed Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, with the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. This was glued to a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


Before attaching the birds, I glued Old Olive foliage, cut with a Dainty Delight Die. Then, I added three Parakeet Party Dots as a final touch.

Warning: the Alphabest Bundle was recently moved to the “low inventory” list, so don’t delay ordering it.
