Just a couple more days, and you too can own this fun, new, Swirly Bird stamp set from Stampin’ Up!
I thought it would be fun to use the Triple-Time stamping technique, but change it up a bit. First, I only used two layers, so I am calling this Double-Time stamping. Finally, instead of making the card layers straight, I rotated them to add some additional interest.
Check out the inside! I masked off the upper portion of the card with 3-M Post-it-Note tape, then stamped the swirly image to the card. Love the interest it adds! So very easy, yet it really adds some punch!!
Don’t you just love a bright and cheery card? This really makes me think of summers in Southern California and the many, many palm trees.
The Pop of Paradise stamp set, the Emerald Envy cardstock, and Emerald Envy ink are NEW Stampin’ Up! products.
They will be available for purchase on June 1, 2016, when the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog begins.
I wanted a background paper that went with the warm summer theme. But, I couldn’t find one that fit the bill. Therefore, I created my own using the pineapple stamp, versamark ink, and gold embossing powder. Love how it looks!
The inside is quite simple, just stamped the pineapple and let it go at that.
I saw this technique on YouTube some time ago and knew that it would be perfect for today’s card. Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate the video again, so I cannot give her/him credit. If this is your amazingly creative idea, thank you so much for sharing!!!
As I explain in my video, when aligning your die with the stamped image, be sure that the inside edges of the die touch the outside edge of your image.
You can see in picture #3 above that the top line intersects with his chest and the bottom line with his shoe. This step is vital! If the lines do not meet the image, the finished product will not turn out.
The rest is quite easy. Make your scissor cuts, insert your die, run through the Big Shot machine and fussy cut the stamped image. So easy, yet looks so intricate.
Isn’t this awesome!! Think of all the possibilities. . .

You have learned a new technique.
I hope you will make one and let me know how it turns out.
I look forward to hearing from you!
