Designer Paper Birdhouse and Bird…

Here is another card we made at my Friday’s class similar to a swap card I received. This one can be made from all of those small scraps of designer series paper you have. You know we all have lots and lots of scraps in a box and this is the “Perfect Project” to make with them. This was a fun card to put together.


I first cut a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pretty-in-Pink Card Stock and scored  it at 4 1/4″.

I then cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Wild Wasabi Card Stock (available July 1) and a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of So Saffron Card Stock for the layers.

For the birdhouse I cut a 3″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper for the roof and a 2-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Tea Party Designer Series Paper for the bottom. Along one long edge of the roof piece I scalloped it with the Scallop Edge Punch.

Out of s scrap piece of Regal Rose Card Stock I used my Big Shot and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit to cut the embossed heart as the birdhouse opening.

The bird was cut out of piece of Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper with the Two Step Bird Punch.

I stamped the “Wish Big” from the Short and Sweet Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink onto Very Vanilla Card Stock and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. I then layered it onto a piece of Garden Green cut out of the Scallop Punch.

I layered the card as shown and adhered a Sweet Pea Felt Flower on the roof.

Make sure you make lots of these for spring birthdays, Mother’s Day or any other occasion you can think of. Don’t forget to send me any cards or projects you make using Stampin’ Up! fabulous products. I will feature them on “Your Gallery Page.” “Your” meaning you so, get busy and leave me a comment from time to time.

Thanks for taking the time out to visit with me.

Three Hearts and A Bird…

This is the final Valentine’s Day Card. For the saying on this card I stamped “Heartfelt Thanks” from the Sweetheart Stamp Set, because I needed a thank you card. In the class we stamped “Love” from the Wonderful Words Stamp Set (retired). Both were embossed with White Embossing Powder.


Because I love the Two-Step Bird Punch and the Scalloped Heart to Heart Embosslit so much I decided to make another card using them. 

For this card I cut pieces of:

      Real Red Card Stock (10″ x &” and scored it at 5″) and

                                                     two (3″ x 3″) squares

     Blush Blossom Card Stock (4-1/2″ x ^-1/2″), 

     Regal Rose Card Stock (3″ x 3″) 

I punched the Two-Step Bird out of Real Red Card Stock and with The Big Shot and the Scalloped Heart to Heart Embosslit Die I cut two hearts from Regal Rose Card Stock and one from Real Red Card Stock. I used 5/8″ Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon and Hodgepodge Hardware to complete the card with the perfect touches.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects. Come back next week for a sneak peek into the garden class coming soon in March.

Thanks for visiting!

Two Birds & A Heart Valentine…

This is a card I made for a swap. I also included it in the Valentine’s Day Class. For this card I wanted to play around with the new Stampin’ Up! Two-Step Bird Punch, the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder. 


Here’s What I did:

1. I cut pieces of: 

        Real Red Card Stock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored it at 4-1/4″)

        Regal Rose Card Stock ( 5″ x 3-3/4″)

        Blush Blossom Card Stock (4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″)


2.     I punched two birds with the Two-Step Bird Punch. This punch id fundamentally! The storage is so very nice because of the new punch design. I found the punch easy to use and because the punch is two-step the variations you can achieve are endless. 

3.   After I punched the birds out I placed the wings inside the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die to add texture to each wing. If you do this you need to remember to turn one wing around so the texture is facing up on the wing when you assemble your card.


4.       I then ran the piece of Blush Blossom Card Stock through The Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder. Love, Love, Love this folder!!!!


5.       Next, I cut the heart using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die and The Big Shot which I might add, cut and embossed the heart beautifully as you can see from the picture.


6.        I cut a 1-1/4″ piece of 5/8″ Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, folded in half along the long edge, adhered it and attached to the back of the heart.


7.         The card was then layered together as shown. For the  birds’ wings and heart  I used Dimensionals to pop them. I also added a red rhinestone to the heart.


Thanks for stopping by and look for one more Valentine’s Day Card to follow.
