Focal Friday Challenge ~ Inspirational Photo

Hi Friends, each week I choose some sort of Inspirational photo for us all to design with. Last week it was a card sketch and this week it is this photo of a bird door mat. It made me think of the Free As A Bird stamp set and I had a lot of fun coloring up the birds to coordinate.

Here is my interpretation of the Friday Focal inspirational photo above.

After coloring the stamped image I simply fussy cut it out and attached it to one of the Stitched Nested Labels using dimensionals. Both our Regular dimensionals as well as the mini’s were used here. I will have them linked below. Now lets take a look at the full card…

This card has such a elegant feel to it and it is all because of these stunning Laser-cut cards. You can purchase them in a designer tin and they also include coordinating envelopes. See photos below for more details.

I am IN LOVE with this tin of cards. These are part of the Bird Ballad Suite that is found on pages 90-92 of the annual catalog. If you wanting the entire suite simply order item #152190 or purchase the tin of card separately by using item number #149595 – everything is linked below 🙂 I hope you have enjoyed this weeks focus on the Bird Ballad Suite. I could design with this suite of products forever. I just love it so much. Happy stamping my friends! Melanie

Monday’s Melanie’s Must-Have ~ Bird Ballad Suite

I have chosen the Bird Ballad Suite for this weeks focus. This lovely suite includes so many beautiful things. I will share all my projects this week both here as well as my Facebook Page

Bird Ballad Suite Item # 152190

My project today features some coloring with our Stampin’ Up!® Stampin’ Blends® Alcohol Markers.

The Stamp and Die bundle, Item # 151123 includes the beautiful Free as a Bird Stamp Set as well as the Stitched Nested Labels. I am finding I am using these label dies with all my projects. They are small enough for sentiments as well as focal images as shown here in my project.

This above photo shows the details of my coloring as well as the Stitched Nested Label Dies.


Such a lovely color scheme. I will post all supplies below. If your order is under $150 I would realy appreciate you using my monthly Hostess Code: 67YGHK7Y when checking out. Thank you so much! Melanie
