The Swirly Bird Stamp Set and coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (Bundle & Save 10%) can even make FLOWERS!!! You know my love for flowers is strong and while this set doesn’t look like a floral set, IT IS!!!! I love all the different things you can create. You can check out some other samples here, here and here!
I started with a Flirty Flamingo card base! Then I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the largest swirl from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set in the left corner in Flirty Flamingo. Then I took the solid circle stamp and stamped off once in Flirty Flamingo and then stamped it on the card. I took the medium swirly image and stamped full strength Flirty Flamingo over the circle to create the flower! I stamped the little 6 petal flower in Crushed Curry and the small swirly in Perfect Plum. Using the small and large leaf, I stamped near the flowers. With the leaves, I also stamped twice a few times for a variation in color. I love how you can get lots of different colors from one ink pad just by stamping off. I made sure to leave the upper right corner empty so that I could put my greeting there and it would pop some more! Also, remember that when creating a background be sure to fall off the edges of your paper so that it looks like the pattern continues on and on rather than stamping just in the middle. For the greeting, I used the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. I stamped the border and greeting in Perfect Plum onto Flirty Flamingo. Then I used the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits to die cut the label. I took some of the Silver Metallic Thread and wrapped it around my 4 fingers about 8-12 times. Then you will slide the loops off your fingers and gather them into an “8”, twist in the middle, and then lay them on the back of the greeting. Place Stampin’ Dimensionals over the top of the thread to hold it in place and then add to your card! I really found that the twisting helps to make the loops flare out more (even though the sample above doesn’t look very flared). I am really starting to LOVE the thread/twine/ribbon loops behind a greeting or focal image. It can be tricky but the more you do it, the easier it gets! I love the texture and bling it adds to a project!!! Do you like the look? Let me know in the comments below!
