The Pretty Birds Bundle is in my “top 10,” and today’s card is great news for those who don’t enjoy coloring. I simply stamped the birds in black ink, and the color is provided by the flowers and leaves.

The background for the birds was created with a trellis die, one of the Organic Beauty Dies, cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock. After cutting the trellis, I glued it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Pretty Birds in black & white


The birds have nice detail, and stamp beautifully in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After stamping, I used their Birdhouse Dies for cutting.


The flowers and leaves were cut with Blossoming Happiness Dies from Hues of Happiness Designer Paper. We love it when Stampin’ Up! gives us dies to cut images from designer paper, don’t we?

I glued the leaves to the flowers, and attached them with Dimensionals, along with the birds.


The bird holding the sentiment thinks he’s pretty special.”What’s new?” is one of the Charming Sentiments, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, and cut with a Sentiment Silhouettes Die.

If you like birds, you’ll need to add this bundle to your collection. I already have an idea for a design I’ll be posting on Sunday, showing “two-step” stamping.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
