Sneak Peek of Free As A Bird Stamp Set

Today I'm doing another Sneak Peek from the upcoming Stampin' Up! new annual catalog.  I'm using the Free As A Bird stamp Set, part of the new Bird Ballad Suite.  The bundle in this suite includes the stamp set and the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  And this Suite also includes Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin, Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and Bird Ballad Trinkets.  Whew!  That's quite a suite!  Today's card is just a quick peek at what you'll be able to create with this set.  You are going to LOVE working with all of the different elements in this set.       

This card couldn't be easier.  I used one of the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards from the beautiful Bird Ballad Tin.  Then I cut an insert of Purple Posy and attached it to the Laser-Cut card front.

The die cuts are from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies -- a must-have from the new catalog.  I cut off the top point on the large Stitched Nested Label and use it to form a "pocket tab" at the top of the card.  I stamped the bird images in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I broke out both assortments of Watercolor Pencils to color the birds, branch and flowers.  I used Old Olive, Balmy Blue, Pumpkin Pie--for the beaks--, Gorgeous Grape, and Whisper White.  I always forget how much I love to use Watercolor Pencils.  I have so much more control when coloring small images.  And the Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils has such rich pigments for excellent coverage and blending.  

I fussy cut the three stamped flower and attached them to the die cuts as accents.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento, and popped up the sentiment on Dimensionals.  On the pocket flap, I added one of the new Purple Posy 2019-2020 In Color Faceted Dots.
