Handmade cards using Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper



Well, how did that happen? It's been 3 years since I last posted on this blog, 3 years!! I must admit, I stopped crafting for a while but I am back and have fallen in love with being creative all over again! 

With a lot of my favourites retiring from Stampin' Up! in a few weeks time, I thought I'd better showcase them now, before the new crowd comes in! 


The beautiful birds that feature on all of these cards have been cut out from the lovely Bird Ballad DSP which retires on 2nd June. I never used to be a fan of fussy cutting but I have been using this technique a lot more recently and strangely, I find it quite therapeutic.


I've paired the birds with patterned paper backgrounds that coordinate with colours in the Bird Ballad paper, with just enough white space to make the birds pop! 

There are so many of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours in the Bird Ballad DSP - Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede & Whisper White. 

I will certainly be sad to see this one go! Luckily, I have plenty left over so I don't need to buy anymore.
