Stampin' Up! Birds of a Feather Stamp Set

Why are these Christmas birds so cute?  I can't stop myself from using the Birds of a Feather stamp set!  Today I've paired it with paper from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  This is one of those paper you just have to touch.  The trees in the print I used today have 3-dimensional icing on them!  I grabbed my Holiday catalog to reread the description of this paper and found Stampin' Up! indeed described the wonderful little surprise in this package of duel-purpose paper...and I completely missed it.  One side of these papers have winter themes with glittery images, and the other side has basic patterns for year-round use!  How great is that for stretching your crafting dollar! 

The basecard for this card is Coastal Cabana.  Then a layer of Flirty Flamingo.  Then a print from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.      


I  stamped  three of the Christmas Bird from Birds of a Feather stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored the birds with Blends Markers, and hand cut them (fussy cut them) and popped them up on Dimensionals.  The mini Dimensionals really came in handy for the smaller shapes on the birds.   

I stamped one of the sentiments from the Birds of a Feather set on Whisper White using Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo ink.  One one version, I omitted the bottom line of the sentiment to show the versatility of this set.  Each end of the sentiment includes a small Glitter Enamel Dots.  On one card I used Coastal Cabana.  On the other I used Melon Mambo        

You'll find so many creative ways to use the  Birds of a Feather set, as it includes birds for Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentines (or Anniversary).    You'll love everything you make with this stamp set.
