Swirly Bird Sneak Peek

Card Theme Challenge #194

Swirly Bird Sneak Peek created by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Flower Theme Challenge. #swirlybird #stampinup #whimsicalLet me tell you just how much I love the NEW Swirly Bird Stamp Set with coordinating Thinlits!  This set is so adorably whimsical and I think you’ll find it is very versatile!  I am in love and had so much fun with the Swirly Bird Sneak Peek that I am sharing with you today. The card also features the new In-Color, Peekaboo Peach and the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. 

The card front consists of Peekaboo Peach as the card base layered with Whisper White.  I started by stamping with the hardwood background stamp using Sahara Sand.  Next, I used the “line” stamp from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set as the stems of the flowers were stamped using the Emerald Envy Classic Ink which is another NEW In-Color that you are certainly going to love.  On this Swirly Bird Sneak Peek I then stamped the background of each flower using Watermelon Wonder for the center flower, Peekaboo Peach for the top flower and Calypso Coral for the bottom flower.

The Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set is another bundled stamp set available June 1st when customers can start ordering for the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalog unless you join my team TODAY, then you can choose BOTH of these Bundles as part of your kit.  Did you know that I need just ONE MORE person to join my team to help me promote to Silver Elite!  Will you be the NEXT person to join my “international” team?!?  Back to the Swirly Bird Sneak Peek… The Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set features a variety of words and short phrases which can be placed together to create a unique sentiment.  Each word is stamped using Peekaboo Peach then cut out and attached to the card front.
