Elegant Bird Die – Stampin’ Up!

Elegant Bird Die – Stampin’ Up!

I LOVE the Elegant Bird die from Stampin’ Up!

This is a simple little gift card/treat holder for Valentine’s Day and I love the vintage feel it has.
And here is a closer view of the bird –

Steps Used to Create This:
I started with the Primrose Petals Core-dinations Card Stock and the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Using The Stampin’ Sanding System,  I sanded the paper lightly, to give it a vintage, distressed look. 
 Next, Using my Big Shot, I cut two heart shapes using  the large scallop heart from the Hearts Framelits.  I used my sewing machine to stitch these two hearts together – but left an opening at the top to slip in a gift card or treat.  Quick and Easy!!
For the bird,  I used the Elegant Bird die with my Big Shot and cut a Crumb Cake body, and used First Edition paper for the wing. 
I added some bling by using a strip of rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.   They come with adhesive on them , so all I did was pull them off the sheet and placed them as a fun embellishment around her neck. Gotta have the bling!!
The small heart was cut using a scrap of Primrose Petals Core’dinations paper and the Hearts a Flutter framelits.
The little Happy Valentine’s Day stamp is from Teeny Tiny Wishes – a must have stamp set!
I attached my bird to a clothes pin that I had covered with First Edition Paper and sponged with crumb cake ink, and clipped her to the heart.
She can be removed to see the contents of the heart pouch – and I even took her off and placed her on this beautiful rose petal heart that I have hanging on a cupboard in my home.
Pretty?  I think so! Hope you like her too!
Here’s another bird using the Elegant Bird Die that I shared last year when I was asked to present at Stampin’ Up’s Columbus, Ohio Regional.

Here’s a really pink (primrose petals) Valentine using lots of products from the Spring Catalog.  I love pink and I often think God blessed me with four daughters because of my love of pink! 

The large heart is cut from one of the sheets of the More Amore Designer Series Paper – each pack contains 16 of these awesome hearts in Primrose Petals and 16 in Real Red.

I love the Delicate Designs Embossing folder – it’s a quick way to add a lacy, fancy edge to the Very Vanilla Card Stock.

The striped banner and the two smaller hearts are all stamped and cut using the Hearts a Flutter Bundle – which includes the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set and the Co-ordinating Framelits – (save 15% by purchasing these in a bundle)

I had to add a flower from the 5/8 inch flower trim – can’t seem to get enough of these!

Here’s a pretty little Valentine I made today using some more new product!  The heart stamp is a new release and is available as a single stamp in clear mount between now and Jan. 21.  It was made to use with the Full Heart Punch and I added a scallop edged heart that I cut with the new Hearts a Flutter framelits.

For those of you who loved the core-dination card stock that was available in the holiday catalog, we now have it in some fun new colors – I used primrose petals here, but it is also offered in real red and pool party!
YEAH!  I used it with the honeycomb embossing folder. 

Also new on this card is the beautiful 5/8 inch flower trim – here’s a close up of them –

They come in a 2 yard length and can be cut as you wish!  They are so soft and feminine!  Love them!
Have a good weekend everyone!  And as always, thanks for stopping by!
