This little, brown sparrow from the Petal Palette  stamp set is wishing someone (a “one of a kind” someone) a happy birthday. He was stamped in Basic Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, and cut with his own die from the Petals & More die set.

Petal Palette Sparrow


This little sparrow likes to be camouflaged among the leaves and branches. He is perched on a branch that was cut with a Petals & More die from Copper Foil. The background leaves are from a sheet of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. The paper is in black and white, and it’s really fun to color the white part with Stampin’ Blends. I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Bronze to color the leaves. This made the sparrow very happy.

I discovered that this paper is very forgiving when coloring with the Stampin’ Blends, because you can go outside the lines a bit, and it doesn’t matter. You’ll just have to try it to see what I mean.



The Tic Tac Toe challenge inspired me to add ribbon, and I chose a strip of Burlap Ribbon that I attached with two strips of Tear Tape. This ribbon will stay intact, even after the sparrow flies away. Tear Tape provides a very strong hold.


I chose the left row down, so last, but not least, is the sentiment I found in the Lovely Wishes stamp set. I stamped “You are one of a kind” in Basic Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, and cut it with a die in the same Petals & More die set. I ended up using three dies from the same set, and I have to say, this “bundle” is a favorite of mine.


Here is another card of mine from the Petal Palette Bundle. A “bundle” is when the stamp set and die set are sold together, and Stampin’ Up gives you a 10% discount for ordering it that way.
