Today I have a card I made for a special birthday. When I saw my December Paper Pumpkin, I knew it would be perfect to pair it with Bird Banter from the new 2018 Occasions catalog. Did you know that you can now order this stamp set and many others from Stampin’ Up! starting today? That’s right! The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration starts today and runs through May 31, 2018.
The leafy frame, glimmer paper and sentiments are from the Paper Pumpkin kit. And how cute are those parrots? But all that fussy cutting? Not! I also got to finally spend a lot of time playing with my new Brother Scan N Cut machine this past weekend.
Oh my gosh, I love it! I just stamped the images on Whisper White thick card stock, scanned them into the machine and then let it do all the cutting. A few minutes later, this:
How cool is that?!
I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the parrots and flowers and added them to my card with dimensionals.
And the inside of the card. Great sentiment!
This is one of the very few times I stepped out of the “red” box 😉 and used my Paper Pumpkin kit to make something other than the kit project. It was fun, I really need to do that more.
Thanks for stopping by!
