Here’s a fun, happy card to start the week! This very cute parrot is from the Bird Banter set in the Occasions catalog. It contains a bunch of different birds, as well as some very cute bird themed sentiments, perfect for many different occasions! If you love birds, then this is a perfect set for you! Here’s a peek at the full set:
Isn’t is great? My card today uses the parrot, in blues, yellows, and greens. I used Pacific Point cardstock for the base, which is a color I don’t use too often, but I probably should. It’s such a pretty color! Every stamp I used on this card came from the Bird Banter set. So the flower I used to stamp the background, the branch, the bird, the hat, and the sentiment are all included in this one set!
Other products I used on this set include the Layering Circles Framelits, Triple Banner Punch, Silver Baker’s Twine, Metallic Enamel Shapes, and both Brights and In Color Stampin’ Write Markers. The markers I used to color the bird are Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight. I initially had colored the bird with Pacific Point, but I thought it looked too dark. So I stamped it again and went with the Tempting Turquoise, which I liked much better! Plus I like how the lighter blue adds a little extra contrast!
This card was a lot of fun to make! It’s something a little different for me, but I love how it came out. I actually won this set at OnStage, and I’m so happy I did! Hope you like it too!
Have a great day!
