Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Ballad

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had my family over again for an after Christmas dinner.  It was much more relaxed and unplanned.   Well, 2019 is coming to an end tomorrow and I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy this year is ending.  This has not been the best year for me other than meeting up with my team members at OnStage twice, so I’m ready for 2020.  Is anyone  a  New Year’s resolution person of do you just go with the flow?  I’m coming up with some new ideas for the new year, but I stopped making resolutions since they never happen and I would just get angry with myself.  My moto is what will be, will be and I go with the flow.

For today’s card I used some items from the Annual Catalog.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the new catalogs starting that we forget about our Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a Calypso Coral card front using Snail.  I stamped the large bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a mat out using the larger Stitched Nested Labels Dies from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock  I adhered the artwork to the mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I chose not to put a sentiment on the front of my card today.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small and medium flower image and the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set multiple times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
