Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Better With You Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches stamp set bundle and the Tasteful Touches stamp set from the upcoming 2020-21 Annual Catalog to create my card to share with you today.  I did a video tutorial for making this card on my Facebook page yesterday.  I’ve also uploaded it to my YouTube Channel so you can view it there too!

My card design was loosely inspired by the Fusion Challenge sketch this week:

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP (available June 3) to the front of a Pool Party card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set (available June 3) in Pacific Point ink on a panel of Pool Party card stock.  I embossed the panel with the Subtle Embossing Folder and then adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.

I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the branch die from the Birds & More Dies (available June 3) and then colored the die cut with Light Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mongo Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the branch with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.

I stamped the bird, bird wing and feet images from the Birds & Branches stamp set (available June 3) in Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody inks.  I colored the Bermuda Bay bird a little with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and then cut the images out with the coordinating Birds & More Dies.  I adhered the feet with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the birds with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Pacific Point and Mango Melody inks on a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this card, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
