Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Congratulations

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked on Saturday and yesterday I worked around the house.  I thought about going for a nice long walk, but when I walked outside and couldn’t breath, I changed my mind.

For today I played along with another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I just got the Birds & Branches Bundle last week and couldn’t wait to play with it.  My cousin’s son just had a baby boy so I thought I’d send her a congrats on being a  grandma card. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #599.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #463.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #277.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the bird nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the 1st step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2nd step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the first image.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the images out using the Birds & More Dies.  I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the circular die from the Birds & More Dies.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the back of the die cut Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the birds nest to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I adhered the bird to the nest using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the birds eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the panel and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels that I colored using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branch.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink above the branch.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st image.  I stamped the birds legs in Gray Granite Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!
