Happy Friday! Are you as sad as I am about some of the retiring products from the Occasions catalog? Jennifer asked us to feature our favorites this week for our Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog and I just had to use the super-cute Bird Banter stamp set. I paired it with the beautiful Sweet Soiree specialty DSP. Does the card layout look familiar? I used the same layout that my fellow designer Karla Anders used on her Fabulous Friday card last week (see that card here). This is such an easy one - just cut your DSP to 4" x 4" and then slice it on a diagonal using your Stampin' Trimmer. I attached it to a 5-1/4" x 4" panel of whisper white card stock, which makes the terrific center strip for your sentiment. Add a focal element and call it done!
Speaking of focal element, here is a close-up of my birdie - isn't he cute?! I have no idea what kind of bird this is but went with daffodil delight stampin' blend markers to color the body along with calypso coral for the beak (pulling colors from the DSP). I'm thinking this bird surely must be related to Woodstock from the Peanuts comics, am I right?! To make the image pop off the whisper white card stock, I used the light soft sky stampin' blend marker and outlined the image. I cut it out using the Everyday Label punch which is a carryover from the Holiday catalog (yay!) and attached it to the card front with a few dimensionals. Easy-peasy!
