Swirly Bird Kite – Perfect for Summer Fun!

Use the Swirly Bird stamp set by Stampin' Up!® to create a fun summer scene. It will make you want to go fly a kite!

Designed with fun in mind, this Swirly Bird stamp set is sure to help you unlock your creative potential – you can even create a kite!   Mix and match the fun and bold designs to make your cards into artwork.

When I first saw this stamp set, I could not figure out what the 2 rectangle images were for!  (They kind of reminded me of the war machines from Star Wars!)   So I played for awhile and finally figured out that they created a kite!  Duh!!!  *Ü*

Swirly Bird Kite Card

Since it’s summer, I decided to go with a traditional July color combination:  Real Red, Night of Navy and Garden Green.

I created my own templates for the clouds & hills by using Window Sheets.  I free-handed the “hill”for the grass, and I used the cloud from the Tree Builder Punch for the cloud stencil.

  • The base card is a half-sheet of Night of Navy cardstock, cut 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, folded in half at 4-1/4″.
  • The two mats are Real Red (4″ x 5-1/4″) and Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″)
  • I used a sponge, the grass stencil, and Garden Green ink to create the grassy hill.
  • I used a sponge, the cloud stencil, and Soft Sky ink to create the clouds.
  • The Happy Days (from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set) was stamped in Night of Navy ink.
  • The Kite tail & bows were stamped in Real Red and Night of Navy inks.
  • To create the Kite, I stamped the Real Red solid piece first, then stamped the lined Kite using Night of Navy ink and hand-cut the kite with scissors. I then mounted the kite onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card is a lot easier to make than it looks – and a lot of fun!   You could even use this card as an invitation to your 4th of July party – how fun would that be?
