One fun new In Color for 2022-2024 that I've fallen in love with is Parakeet Party.  So it was just natural to pair this new fun color with the Pretty Birds Bundle, which features a flock of parakeets!  The Birdhouse Dies include a lovely birdcage, and I used my Stamparatus to stamp the parakeets, which is a two step stamp from the Pretty Birds Stamp Set.  I used the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder to create a texture on one of my Parakeet Party layers, and I created an image layer using the Beautiful Shapes Dies.  I used a sentiment from the Go To Greetings, and adding a few Matte Black Dots to complete my card.   And it turned out to be sucha bright, cheerful card.   You'll enjoy creating unique looks with this stamp set using different die cuts, coloring medium and different accessories.  Add it to your Shopping List today!

I then Die cut a Basic Black bird cage using the Birdhouse Dies  I used the Beautiful shapes Dies to create an image layer of Basic White matted with Basic Black.  I also used the Beautiful Shapes Dies t create a die cut for my Sentiment.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the group of parakeets from the Pretty Birds Stamp Set.  This is a two-step stamp.  *I stamped the bird outlines in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and then I stamped the Parakeet Party ink to color the parakeets.

Today I wanted to highlight another fun kit:  A Little Smile Card Kit

This kit includes 8 cards and envelopes; and a small carrier for storing these cute Summer gift cards in your purse.  These cards are perfect to use while on vacation to thank your waiter or waitress, your hotel service personnel, or your shop clerks while shopping. Or take them with you to thank people during your next doctor visit.   Fun to craft at your own pace or with friends.

Take a look at the kit contents, below:  Everything from the stamp set, to the clear block, an ink spot, die cuts, base cards, envelops and accessories are all included in the kit!  Make this kit and you'll have gift cards on hand when you need them rather than making that last-minute trip to the store.  With Summer  vacations about to begin for many, this is the perfect kit to take along on a trip or to use this summer. 

Want even more fun sharing time with friends who love to stamp?  Join us for our twice or three times monthly social event where we craft with our Kits -- both from the Stampin' Up! Kit Collection and our Paper Pumpkin Kits--or other projects we want to work on.
