Swirly Bird 07

Fun, messy times in the craft room!  I used a piece of watercolor paper for this Swirly Bird card and stamped it in Peek a boo Peach, Blushing Bride, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum.  Then I watercolored all over the piece to soften and blend the colors.  Splatter the colors over the finish piece and once it dries (important – let it dry!) I stamped the sentiment in Stazon and some more swirls in Stazon and Tangerine Tango.  I also added some die cut swirls.   To finish it off, I added the washi tape (told you I was using it!) to the side.

Hello Swirls

Swirly Bird 06

You’ve probably seen this design all over the place – cause it’s cute! 🙂  This uses more of the Swirly Bird stamp set and die and this time I inset the die pieces.  By using the positive piece I was able to quickly place the negative pieces.  I used the Hello You Thinlit  covered in Crystal Effects for the Hello and Crazy about You to finish it off.  And sequins – lots of sequins!  Some things just need to be repeated.  Hugs, Fran

Peek a boo Thanks

Swirly Bird 05

Swirly Bird Thanks!  I used the Swirly Bird stamp set (again) to make some background paper in Peek a boo Peach and added some swirly roses in Peek a boo Peach and Calypso Coral.  The “Thanks” is the Hello You Thinlits die cut in Peek a boo Peach and covered with Crystal Effect. I just snipped off the “s” and added the “you” from Crazy About You in Calypso Coral.  Hugs, Fran

Remarkable Swirly Bird

Swirly Bird 03

I’m going to share some Swirly Bird cards over the next few days.  This one has a slice down the middle to show the card stock underneath.  It came about when I couldn’t find any matching ribbon in the size I wanted!  The colors here are Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry.  To do this design, I just cut the Whisper White piece 1/4″ smaller than I wanted the front to be, stamped away and then sliced the paper underneath the sentiment.  When I layered it on the Mint card stock, there is a 1/4″ space showing.  I adhered it flat to the card stock and popped it up on the card front.

Swirly Bird 04

For this one, I only subtracted an 1/8″ and used Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry.  Then I popped the stamped pieces up on the Crushed Curry and adhered it to the front.  Slightly different looks.  Hugs, Fran

June Pop It Ups Designer Challenge – Ahoy, Dad

PIU Circle Accordion 03 front

Day 2 of the Pop It Ups Designer Challenge brings me to Father’s Day.  I used Karen Burniston’s Circle Accordion Album  and Stampin Up’s Swirly Bird to make a fun Father’s Day card for any sea loving dad!

I also used Stampin Up”s Guy Greetings for the middle of my card.  I love how the Ring Album die lets you chose the length of your card!  Hope you enjoy this nautical look.  Make sure to check out Karen’s blog to see the other summer cards!  Hugs, Fran

Swirly Boat

Swirly Bird 08

Ahoy, stampin friends!  Swirly has a cute, little boat image and the matching die makes waves!  I chose Dapper Denim, Real Red and Daffodil Delight for this scene.  The bottom of the red mat and Whisper White piece were also cut with the wavy die.  Just line it up below the piece you want to cut and it makes a nice curve.  I embossed the sentiment in white.  Hugs, Fran

More Swirly Bird

This set is addicting!  Here’s a sweet card – design copied from an On Stage display board and colors totally changed.  I chose Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo with a touch of Peak-a-boo Peach.  Linen thread is wrapped around the circle for a nest.  The swirled background paper is from the stamp set.  Hugs, Fran

This is my take on another Display Board card at On Stage.  I used Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride for my card and the very versatile Swirly Bird stamp set.  This is going to be a “must have” stamp set!  There are so many thing you can do with it!  The sentiment is from Friendly Wishes.  I stamped mine on a 5 1/2 x 4 piece of Whisper White.  After stamping all my swirly flowers, I added some dots using a Wink of Stella gold pen – and then some sequins!  Adhere it to a Flirty Flamingo card base and tie a gold ribbon around it and you have a cute card.  Hugs, Fran
