I've got one final Swirly Bird card for you this week. I think it is one of my favorites! You must really be enjoying these samples, too…..every order from the new catalog that I've received (so far) has included this bundle! It is incredibly versatile and will pair with any greeting stamps that you may already own.
I began by stamping some of the smaller images (swirl, splatter, flower) in Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, and Mint Macaron ink randomly across the top part of the card. I stamped off the Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaroon to give a lighter shading on those stamps. I also stamped the large, solid circle off in Sweet Sugarplum and the larger swirl full strength in Peekaboo Peach….both along the left side of the card.
I die cut several of the swirls and leaves from Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, and Mint Macaron card stock. The leaves were also stamped with Mint Macaron ink using another image from the Swirly Bird stamp set. The final touches are a few of the White Perfect Accents and "hello" from Endless Birthday Wishes stamped in Basic Black ink.
We've got another crazy weekend planned for the Stout household which includes a few graduation open house parties. I'm a little sad that my son missed his graduation ceremony, but so thankful for the wonderful support he received before he left. Next weekend is Bella's ballet recital, then maybe, just maybe, life will begin to return to normal. I feel like we've been on the go forever. It'll be nice to take a break and slow down.
For those of you that are local, don't forget the New Catalog Launch Party on Sunday, June 12th from 2pm–4pm at Stout Chiropractic. Hope to see you there!
