Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


I used the Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter stamp set to share with you for our sketch challenge for the blog hop today.  When I saw Bird Banter at OnStage in November, I fell in love with the cute images and sentiments.  I know you will. too!  Bird Banter is available to order on January 3, 2018.

My card base is Bermuda Bay.  A panel of Bubbles & Fizz DSP (FREE during Sale-a-Bration!) was adhered to a panel of Whisper White, then a smaller panel of the same Bubbles & Fizz (the back side) was adhered to a panel of Daffodil Delight, then adhered to the first panel with liquid glue.  Both were then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the parrot and birthday hat, from Bird Banter, in Tuxedo Memento Black ink onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  I colored each image in with my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.  I also used a Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker for an accent on the wing feather and hat.  After coloring them in, I fussy cut them out with my Paper Snips scissors.

The sentiment was stamped in the top right corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then, I stamped the branch in Tuxedo Memento Black and colored in the leaves with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.  The two short branches with leaves were then stamped and fussy cut.   I used my Everyday Label Punch to cut out a label shape from another panel from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP and cut it in half horizontally.  The halved label was adhered to the back of the art panel with liquid glue, then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The parrot, hat and leaves were then added wit more Stampin’ Dimensionals and one Bermuda Bay Enamel Shape heart was added for some bling.

For the inside, I used the Happy Birthday Thinlets Dies to cut 2 Bermuda Bay and 1 Daffodil Delight sentiments, adhered the 2 Bermuda Bay cuts together with dabs of liquid glue, then offset the Daffodil Delight just a little before adhereing it to the other two to create a shadow effect.  Enjoy!
