A Bird Banter Birthday

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!
