SU Best Birds with Birds and Blooms Thinlits

August 22, 2016

Happy Monday, everyone! I wanted to get in on the fun at Pals Paper Arts #314 this round.

Here is the sketch that inspired my card:


SU Best Birds Gold Foil

Those birds are so sweet, aren’t they? Did you notice the tiny little hearts in the upper right corner? They came from the birdie’s tail:)

So, I stamped the sentiment crooked on the pretty paper from the AWESOME Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. Boy, was I bummed since the gold embossing turned out great:(

To fix my mistake, I just punched the sentiment out using my retired oval and scallop oval punches. I  then mounted it and liked it better after my mistake (frown turned upside down:)

Can you believe I did not even notice until this weekend that the Birds and Blooms framelit/thinlits not only framed the stamped images in the Best Birds stamp set but also had three birds that are just cut out! Yea! Take a look…and they come in a bundle with 10% off both of them!

  3. Sometimes there are hidden treasures in those framelit packages, I’m glad you found one because this card is gorgeous! I love the green and gold combination. I love your interpretation of the sketch with thin and thick lines instead of having them even, I LOVE that you shared the technique of popping out a piece of the designer series paper for the sentiment; brilliant tip! Thanks for sharing this!
