Pootlers Team Blog Hop | Free as a Bird Thank You Card

Join the Number 1 Stampin' Up! Team in the UK

Hey folks! It’s a special day here today, the first Pootlers Team Blog Hop of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue! I absolutely LOVE taking part in these blog hops, the girls always work so hard to create some fabulous projects to inspire you with some of the new stamps and goodies in the catalogue. I also coordinate these hops, and with the recent birth of my daughter I did consider not running the hop this time, but, they are so much fun I couldn’t miss one!

This time I thought I would share a fun way of using the Free as a Bird stamp set. This stamp set is one of my absolute favourites in the new catalogue, and it forms part of just the most gorgeous suite of products. Bird Ballard includes a bright and fun pack of Designer Series Paper, pretty lace trim, some lovely embellishments and just the most beautiful tin and notecards. I’ll list all the goodies in this suite at the bottom of this blog post.

This card was inspired by my friend Stacey Marsh and a card she made using another new stamp set, Sailing Home. I just really liked the diagonal stamping, here I’ve used the pretty flower stamps from Free As A Bird and stamped in Stazon ink onto Shimmer White card stock

Then each flower was (very) loosely watercoloured in either Rococo Rose for the large flowers, or Mint Macaron for the smaller ones.

I did actually originally stamp the sentiment straight onto the card, but it just didn’t quite have the right impact. So, I stamped it again onto a scrap of card stock the same width as the stamped panel and popped it up on some dimensionals.

Now, I love this stamp set, but I do have one issue… it doesn’t have coordinating dies! So, that flower was fussy cut. But, it does actually cut out quite easily, or it does when you only cut one anyway!

Thank so much for checking out my blog today, I would be so grateful if you would check out the projects the other ladies have created for the Pootlers Team Blog Hop. Just click on the images below to be taken to each of their blogs, and I hope to see you again very soon!
