A Very Merry Thank You

Let’s say you are looking for a sweet, little bird to showcase with gorgeous Spring papers that showcase soft colors and floral designs, where do you begin? You start by looking at your Christmas stamp sets that are still part of Stampin’ Up!’s Online Exclusives, of course. I was happy for this little bird from the So Very Merry stamp set to land on today’s Spring-filled card. Here’s my card:

So Very Merry, Flight & AIry, Stampin Up!, Brian King

Here’s a look at the So Very Merry stamp set – there’s a lot of Christmas in there, but the sweet bird is universally adorable:

So Very Merry, Stampin Up! 162345I stamped the sweet, stain glass bird with Night of Navy ink and colored him with a mix of Stampin’ Blends (Boho Blue, Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Medium Deep and Lemon Lime Twist). Here’s a closer look:

My card started with two panels of the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper – a pink panel and a blue panel (both with pink and blue flowers). This is one of the items you can select for free with a $50 order during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration event. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper:

Sale-a-Bration 162977The two floral panels (one is 3-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ and one is 4″ x 2-3/4″) serve as the base for the colorful card, but I another design from the papers for a subtle accent on my card. Three 1/4″ strips of the Boho Blue watercolored page add a little action behind the bird.

My bird and sentiment are stamped on a die-cut rectangle from the Everyday Details Dies. I had originally wanted holes from the die to showcase the paper behind the element. At last minute, though, to add another element of Night of Navy, I glue a penal of cardstock behind the die-cut piece. I love these dies – they are a MUST-HAVE from the new Mini Catalog. Here’s a look at the Everyday Details Bundle:

I added three Night of Navy dots from the Ombre Matte Decorative Dots (three shades of Night of Navy where one is a rich Night of Navy and one is close fit for Boho Blue). So sweet!
