Bird Ballad Scalloped Note Card Set

I’ve got a note card set for you today using a lovely set of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes from the new cataloue.

Both the envelopes and note cards have a dainty scalloped edging and there are 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This gives you 20 note cards and envelopes for $14.00 which makes it .70 cents a set. 

Decorating these were easy with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The colours were just perfect for these note cards. I used the same simple layout on all the cards. 

The other day I spent a bit of time fussy cutting several images from these papers. I mixed and matched the birds with my cards today.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my frames. For the bottom layer I first tried Basic Black but felt that was too harsh so opted for Basic Gray and liked this much better as it was a softer look.

First card is Old Olive and I’ve added the lovely floral paper on the base. 

This is the Light Pink card and for my die cut square I used Petal Pink which coordinated with the paper I had used for the background. Are you loving the designs on the paper as much as I am?

Terracotta Tile card base but I did my die cut square in Calypso Coral. Can you tell? Someone didn’t read the back of the pack very well!

The Gingham Gala sequins came in just the right colours to embellish these 4 cards. Stampin’ Up! are spot on for coordination. I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays and Detailed with Love (retired but I had missed moving it out of my currents) stamp sets for the sentiments to cover a variety of occasions.

Big Wishes Fiesta Card using Stamparatus

This was a bit of a backwards card. Why backwards you ask? I had no final card in my mind when I started. It first started with me playing with my Stamparatus to create the border. I am loving using our positioning tool. It was so easy to align from the Detailed with Love stamp set to create this fun border. It was just a bit of an experiment and then I built my card up from there.

I wanted to highlight some of our new and returning colours and Poppy Parade is lovely and bright and really went well with my border. My card was beginning to look a bit like a Mexican Fiesta with all those colours. The Big Wishes stamp set is exactly that – big, fun wishes. It has big sentiments with balloons, candles, streamers – party. The Fiesta was definitely happening!

I added some balloons in Highland Heather because every party needs some balloons right? Daffodil Delight ribbon adds some extra fun colour and the black helped to tie it all together. Definitely a card a bit different to the ones I’ve been doing lately. It’s been fun trying out new tools and vibrant colours.
