Wednesday is my Linc n Learn day, and today we played with the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird set. This is set is also my Stamp by Mail theme, but I wanted to get away from the colour combo used in the suite.
I had pulled out Rococo Rose from my stash, and had Seaside Spray out already from something else I was working on. They looked great together. I was going to go for 3rd colour, but felt like a White base would work best.
I love that with this set you can even get away with cutting some of the image out of the frame, and it still looks good!
I’m back to building up my Happy Birthday Stash as I usually send out around 13-15 each month to my team members.

I am so excited to share projects with you from demonstrator friends around the world all using the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I am honored to be a part of this design team and love that we can all share projects using the same DSP. Make sure to check out all the blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy these projects from around the world.
This paper suits me pretty well, considering I live in a seaside town, and across the road from the ocean! I can even see a lighthouse from our front windows! There’s often days where we watch Dolphins, and can you believe it even a Whale once.
So onto my card….
I’ve started my card with a base of Balmy Blue, sponged around the edges and also stamped the seagulls on the top left and bottom right hand corners.
Next I’ve adhered a layer of the compass paper, and a smaller piece of the striped linen look paper.
I then cut out a stitched circle, sponged around the edge and stamped the seagulls again. I cut a strip of Night of Navy and cut V into one end and adhered it to the circle. This has helped tie in the navy from the paper. The circle was then adhered over the striped paper.
I’ve stamped the lighthouse onto Whisper White paper using Night of Navy ink, and cut out with the matching dies. I then took a slightly damp aquapainter and coloured over the image. This allowed the ink to bleed a little and fill the image in more without taking away from the detailed look.
The lighthouse is raised with Dimensionals. I’ve stamped For You from the Itty Bitty Greetings set, cut out and adhered over the lighthouse.
My card is finally complete with a little ships wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets pack.
It’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the Bird Ballad DSP. Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.
If you have any questions about the card, or would like to order any of the products I’ve used, please feel free to contact me.
Hey Everyone!! This week at Linc n Learn we created a card with Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Day coloured with Stampin Blends.
This was a card I found on Pinterest, and loved it. So much so, that I’ve now created 4 cards in different colours.
Colours of the Blends for the yellow butterfly are Mango Melody Combo and Daffodil Delight Combo.
I also changed the orientation of the card too!
Colours for the pink butterfly are Rococo Rose Combo and Flirty Flamingo Combo.
When you use colours from different colour bases, you end up sort of creating your own new colours. It is important to make sure you colour over all the layers, or your blending won’t turn out so well.
Here’s a replay of the Facebook Live I did Friday Morning.

REMINDER – Mosaic Mood Class by Mail closes 12th August
The other day for the Stamping Society Blog Hop, I created a box to contain some chocolate. The chocolate was part of a Silver Elite appreciation gift for those in my direct team who are Silver Elites.
Other items included a Dot Point Journal, Pen, Hair Treatment etc and a card. Can’t show you the card because it’s part of the Stamping Society Tutorial, but I can show you how I packaged up the other items.
For the journal I created layers of belly bands using both the Noble Peacock Specialty Paper and the Foil Sheets. The feather has been cut from left over ink blended card and actually moves from old olive into blueberry bushel. The clip is recycled from the Incentive Trip. They were attached to all our gifts. I’m so happy I had a use for it.
The hair mask is like a match book. It’s open on the sides, and stays closed by the gorgeous double sided ribbon. Finished off with a die cut from the Noble Peacock Dies.
