Swirly Bird Stamp Set

Swirly Bird Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

The Swirly Bird Stamp Set in one of my favorite new sets in the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.   I love the bold images and how simple it is to make fast & easy cards.   If you often need cards in a hurry, then this stamp set should be at the top of your Wish List!

Swirly Bird Stamp Set – A Simple Birthday Card

My card was a variation of a card I saw by talented Demonstrator, Becky Roberts.  Becky’s card was a very clean & simple card, stamped on a half-sheet of White White cardstock.    I decided that for this card, I wanted a lot of color — so I designed this entire card around one of my favorite new color combinations:  Bermuda Bay, Peekaboo Peach and Emerald Envy:

 

I started with a half a sheet of Bermuda Bay Cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″), which I folded in half to make the base card.  I then stamped all over the top of the basecard with the “outline” swirl using Bermuda Bay ink.  (My pad was brand new, so I ended up tapping off most of the ink on my scratch sheet before I stamped onto the cardstock.)

Starting with a 3″ x 4″  piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the large solid swirl in the lower left corner of the cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set (one of my personal favs!) beside the flower, slightly overlapping it, using Memento Black ink.

I then stamped the small bold swirl several times using Peekaboo Peach ink.   I added various leaves using Emerald Envy ink.  And because I felt there was too much white space, I added some speckles using the speckle stamp from the same set, using Soft Sky ink.

I layered the white cardstock onto a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece Peekaboo Peach cardstock and mounted it onto the card using Stamping Dimensionals.  I was going to add a large Rhinestone in the center of the bold swirl, but decided to use a small piece of Peekaboo Peach ribbon that I tied into a knot and adhered onto the card using a glue dot.

A fast & easy card that makes quite a statement due to the dramatic use of bold color!
