Saturday Showcase | Birdie

By | General, Saturday Showcase | No Comments

Let’s take a closer look at the Birdie stamp and die collection!

 

 



 

“My yard is filled with trees and as autumn arrives, I love watching the leaves change colors and begin to fall! For today’s card, I created a “window’s view” type perspective with the depth and size of the branch and leaves! I loved using so many of the new release products on this autumn thank you card!”

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

“Birdie is such a sweet and peaceful set. I love all of the bits and pieces included for building a beautiful tree branch. But for today, I chose a cheery, non traditional autumn color palette for my card and focused on just the flowers to create a pretty floral border. I also mixed it with a couple of must have dies from a previous release!” 

“Overflowing with flowers, sweet birds, lovely bird cages, and heartfelt sentiments…how can you not be smitten with the new Birdie set?  I created a soft and airy design that would would work for many different occasions.  I combined this charming set with a couple of previously released products that I felt complimented each other very well!”

“More than any other season, summer makes me think of bright yellow–probably because it’s associated with sunshine, flowers, and, of course, lemons!  I chose to make some especially bright yellow lemons with bright green leaves for my card today, shades that would be certain to evoke happiness and delight to whoever receives this card.”

 

 

 

 

 

“Lemons are such a happy, cheerful  fruit and transition from spring through summer and right on into early fall which is what I was thinking of when making this little chalkboard tag.  A sweet way to send a hug with the new student!”

“Simple stamping and bright colors always seem to be my go-to and that’s just what I created for today with the Watercolor Textures: Brushstrokes. The large brushstroke image created the perfect background for my sentiment and images to sit on!”

“I chose a very soft and subtle color palette for my Watercolor Textures:  Brushstrokes tags.  I love seeing how colors blend when stamped over one another and the images in this stamp set are such a fun way to explore color and add your own personality to!”

“I absolutely adore the watercolor background look and I enjoy it even more when it’s quick and easy to achieve!  This set is perfect for so many different techniques but my favorite is a simple watercolor look!  With just ink, water, and watercolor paper I created a colorful and festive background.  I already know that this simple but essential set is going to be a staple for me!”


“I created the watercolored texture by inking up my stamp in Tropical Teal ink, stamping it once on scrap paper, and then stamping it on a panel of white cardstock.  It gives it a soft, textural appearance and I welcomed the “imperfections” this technique left in the brushstroke images.  The card itself went through several variations until I stripped it down to just minimal details–the stamped brushstroke pattern, a simple sentiment, tiny pink hearts, and a pink bow.  It’s simple, but it’s just right!”
