Bird Banter for Fab Friday #131

Fab Friday #131

I knew Bird Banter would work just perfectly for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Bird Banter is one of those stamp sets that makes you giggle. Everyone needs a laugh now and then.

Here is the sketch:

So simple, yet you can doll it up if that suits you. I chose to stay with the simple sketch but to add some details to the elements. Here is my card:

 #2108 Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog #Ginny Harrell #Bird Banter

The Berry Burst base is a standard A2 size. Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” Adhere to the card base. Cut the DSP 2” x 4 ¾” and use the Triple Banner Punch to make the tag. Use the Layering Circe Framelits to create the Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst elements. Stamp the parrot and color with Blends. Fussy cut the parrot. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and cut a notch on one end. Now you are ready to assemble your card. Tie a fluffy bow of Berry Burst Crinkle ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.

This crinkle ribbon is so yummy. It ties a soft and pretty bow.

 

Once you reach a “certain age” funny, sarcastic cards are the perfect choice and Bird Banter certainly is a funny stamp set. I absolutely love this stamp set!

I appreciate you stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday, Birdie!

Have you been looking for something other than flowers for your cards and scrapbook pages? Look no further. These funny little birds will steal your heart. I love the playful nature of these birds and the sentiments are priceless.

Aren’t they cute?

I knew I had to have these birds for another reason. A few years ago we met our neighbors down the street and they own cockatiels. We have “bird sat” for them several times since then. Bird Banter will make fun cards for me to give them or send for special occasions.

Here’s my card:

I wanted the birds to be perched on something other than a branch. They fit just right on the Happy Birthday Thinlits. Mixing the Happy with a sentiment from Happy Celebrations gives the card some visual interest.

Do you know someone who would appreciate a little bird humor?? Create a card and send it to them!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy stamping!

Bird Banter for GDP#115

Today I am sharing a sneak peek at one of the new stamps sets that will be released January 2018. Bird Banter is so very cute! You will love the many different ways you can use this set.

Did you know birds are high maintenance pets? They need fresh food, water and interaction every day. Just like all pets!  We have neighbors who own birds and when they travel they have called upon us to pet sit or just stop in and talk to the birds – they get lonely for a human voice.

GDP#115 challenge this week is Christmas Joy.

I thought Bird Banter would make a joyful, funny Christmas card for our friends.

What do you think? Is this joyful enough? I know it will bring a smile and a laugh.

The tree branch is from Best Birds and the ornaments are from Carols of Christmas. It is fun to combine sets to create unique cards. Creating cards is one of the best jobs I have ever had!

I know this set will be a big seller from the new catalog. Put it on your wish list today.

 Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!
