A Pair of Twittery Bird Cards

Hi Everyone,

Well – here it is – the post I’ve been promising for days! lol I recently received a new order from Stampin’ Up which included a pile of items I’d been drooling over in the catalogues for some time and finally, with the help of some Birthday money, was able to buy myself.

One of which was the Elegant Bird Bigz die! Here it is…


I’ve used the some old DP and cut a whole pile of different patterned papers with the two different elements on the die – bird & wing, then mixed and matched the papers. The first card (above) used a pile of different products and I really love the Antique Brads that I purchased, they go so well with the Victoria Lace Ribbon.


For the second card, I utilised my new Scoring Tool – it’s called Simply Scored and it comes with 1/8” score tracks, OR you can buy an adapter plate with 1cm score tracks, which suits me as I’m a bit of a metric girl and all those inches do my head in!
Well I’ll be off to play with my Simply Scored and make some of those lovely scored pinwheel flowers I see all over the place.

The Elegant Bird is part of the Twitterpated Suite of products that are found in the current Winter Mini Catalogue. You only have until July 31st to buy this one so – pull your finger out and place your order today! Contact me anytime, anyhow to place your order. All my contact details are on my Stampin Up Website.

I absolutely love this die and look forward to using it with some fabric too – perhaps to decorate a cushion cover or quilt (now I’m really dreaming – quilt? I’m not that good! lol)

I'd like to share these cards with the world, so will enter a few challenges I think
