What is That Stamp Image?

What is That Stamp Image? 

It’s been the talk in many chat rooms on Facebook lately among my demonstrator friends…. What is that weird image in the Swirly Bird stamp set?

It’s a Kite.  Yes, the cutest kite ever.

The “mystery image” in the Swirly Bird stamp set creates a Kite.  In fact, it’s the kite you see above.

I kept this card very quick and simple.  The greeting is what truly stands out.  I love this.

I did a little fussy cutting on the kite, but nothing hard.  I stamped the kite string lightly and stamped a few bows on the kite to coordinate.

Another love of mine on this card… Layering Love stamp set.  Oh jeez.  The words.  The fonts.  The the the… It’s AMAZING.  Christmas gifts will easily be created using this stamp set because the word art in this set is perfection.

The main colors used for this card was Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight.

I had every desire to go nuts with this card adding more layers.  Truth be told, once I attached the kites, I realized this card did not need anything else.  Isn’t that a beautiful thing?

Are you making your wish list? I hope Swirly Bird is on it.

A Boy and His Kite

A Boy and His Kite

I can’t tell you the last time I actually flew a kite but after stamping this card I had the itch to find a kite and fly it.

I pulled out my Happy Home stamp set again and the little boy flying the kite is precious.

If you missed the last card I created with this set you can check it out HERE.  It was more frilly for a girl.

So much cuteness in this set.  I love the small images that create a scene.

Tips & Tricks

  • I started this card by using stamping the image on Whisper White cardstock and then punching the image with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  The other circles were die cut using the Circles Framelits.
  • The missing you greeting was stapled onto the circle layers to keep it together.
  • The acrylic dots were laying on my desk from a Project Life accessory kit.  I keep a small basket with little trinkets like this that I can find little treasures to use on cards.  They are usually remnants from a kit or something I’ve stamped and didn’t trash.  Love using these little trinkets.
  • The image was colored using a Sponge Dauber for the sky and a Blender Pen for the grass.

Travel News 

Today I probably wish I was flying a kite.  That’s not happening.  Todays the day I need to have it ALL done.  All the packing, lists for the house sitter, house picked up (HA HA HA-like that is going to happen!)  I feel like I will never accomplish everything on my list, but I’m keeping it ALL real and telling myself that even if I don’t get it all done, we will survive.

Honestly, the hardest part of this has getting things ready for the couple staying in our home.  They have a job let me tell you.  Dogs, cat, Guinea Pigs, and my 150 gallon fish tank.  These poor people.  I feel better that someone will be able to love on the fur babies while we are gone.

The kids are cracking me up.  Brandon cannot contain his excitement.  Alexis, still very excited is only worried about the outfits.

Okay… It’s time for me to finish up the last minute details.  XOXOXO

PS- Coming next week… ALL NEW stamps coming.

PSS- If you have ordered from me this year you should have received a FREE catalog.  If you have not, and you wish to order contact me using the link at the top of this page and I will send you a catalog when I get back.
