Stamping 411 Sketch – Aviary

Time for another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge!  A really fun and easy sketch this week…it came together pretty quickly!  We invite you to play along and upload your creation over on Stamping 411.  And, check out what the other Design Team Operators did this week!



And here is my card using the fun Stampin' Up! stamp set, Aviary!



I started with a base card of Daffodil Delight.  Then I cut strips of Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist and ran them thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I layered them onto Early Espresso cardstock.  I cut another strip of Early Espresso used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch, then placed it along the left side. 


For the center, I stamped the Birdcage from Stampin' Up!'s Aviary stamp set in Early Espresso on Whisper White, then added the Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight birds inked with Stampin' Write Markers.  I punched it with the Wide Oval Punch and then I punched Marina Mist cardstock with the Modern Label Punch, cut it in half, and placed it behind the Wide Oval.  I added two Rhinestone jewels to each side.  I wrapped the 1/8 Taffeta Daffodil Delight Ribbon to the back and tied a bow at the top of the birdcage.  Finally, I stamped "let's celebrate" from On Your Birthday stamp set in Early Espresso, then punched with the Small Oval Punch and placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I had lots of fun playing with this Stamping 411 sketch…hope you do, too!
