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?
