On Board So Tweet

Stampin up on board so tweet saleabration

How tweet it is!  Stampin' Up!'s new On Board So Tweet ($14.95) includes six 9" x 9" chipboard die cut sheets with more than 80 images of retro birds, owls, pears, flowers and more (scroll down for photo).  This card is for my nephew's new baby girl.  However, think how versatile it could be for birthday, thank you, spring or even Easter creations.

This is the first time I have owned Stampin' Up! On Board die cuts.  I was a little nervous about how easily I could cover them with Designer Paper.  No worries.


  • Cut a piece of Designer Paper larger than the chipboard object you are covering.
  • Adhere, making sure the side you want exposed is showing.
  • Using a Paper Snips, trim excess paper.
  • Sanding tools soften and blend any rough edges. 
  • I discovered a Crop-A-Dile (the larger hole) pops out the eye perfectly.

TIP:  You can use Stampin' Up!'s sanding blocks (103301) to blend the edges.  However, I used 
sanding tools from BasicGrey, featuring nifty shapes to sneak into and sand crevices.  Click Precision File Set ($6.99) for details.

This design is attributed to Splitcoast Sketch Challenge, SC213, and my demo downline challenge "Have a Heart."  TIP:  My favorite daily challenges are linked for your convenience on my left side bar. 

What simplified the design was playing with the coordinated patterns from the Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, an exclusive Sale-A-Bration product (one product free with every $50 in Stampin' Up! merchandise.  Starts Feb. 1). 

The sentiment (Bashful Blue) is from Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess Level 1)  TIP:  All hostess rewards and free merchandise are available when you place an on-line order beginning at $150 in Stampin' Up! products.  Combined with Sale-A-Bration, it's a smart time to stock up or order with friends to earn these fabulous free items.

Sale-A-Bration runs Feb. 1 thru March 31 (all free items are available with on-line orders)

  • The Sale-A-Bration brochure will be available for download on my blog on Feb. 1 OR email me, if you would like a FREE copy.
  • Earn free Sale-A-Bration stamps, ribbon or designer paper with every $50 you spend.
  • Bonus:  Receive a free Sale-A-Bration product (in addition to above) with orders of at least $300, $600 or $900.
  • Join the Stampin' Pretty Pals (my virtual downline) and receive a FREE stamp set of your choice (up to $47.95 value), plus all the other demonstrator benefits.

  1. Adorable, adorable, adorable!! After reading the cattie cover-to-cover 7 times, I finally noticed these last week. I work switchboard at our hospital and quite often read the cattie throughout my shift. I never tire of viewing it and am thrilled there are adorable stamp sets this time around. The last cattie was disappointing. In the last six stamper’s 12 group I’m in, I only bought two stamp sets. These birds are on my list to buy.

  2. P.S. I usually adhere paper to chipboard using the SU glue stick. It dries quickly, so you can’t delay once you cover the chipboard with glue, but it holds the paper down beautifully. And I always sand the edges, which is where the Basic Grey sanding set comes in so handy.

    Hi Lisa: Fabulous tip. I have added the Anywhere Glue Stick (104045) to my order list for when Sale-A-Bration starts tomorrow!!! Hugs, Mary

  3. Mary, I ordered all the same stuff as you…we are so smart! I can’t wait to use it, not here yet but hopefully Monday! Love this….might case it just a little…LOL!

  4. I just recently discovered your blog and I am in awe. You do such a terrific job with all your creations and I love that you use a lot of SU stamps and supplies. The information you provide is such a plus. Thank you for this blog.

  5. Awwww….what a tweet card! Mary, my wish list is so long already. Don’t tempt me with anything else!!!!

    I can’t wait for SELLABRATION!!!!!!!

  6. Oh this is adorable!! Love the color mix. The use of these chipboard pieces fit this week’s sketch perfectly!

  7. You did a GREAT job … and I LOVE the details you provide for each of your projects, so that others can easily replicate them. You are a REAL inspiration!! 🙂

    I do have one question … What adhesive did you use to cover the chipboard pieces with designer paper?

    Thanks again for sharing your creativity!! I LOVE … ABSOLUTELY LOVE … your blog!!

    Hi Judy:

    I use an ATG adhesive gun (not as dangerous as it sounds). It’s very large and pricey on the front end ($40’ish). However, the adhesive reels as long (less changing) and cheaper than a snail refill when you calculate cost per square foot. It makes sense for me with the amount of adhering I do. They are VERY reliable about keeping things in place, too. No “wardrobe failures.”

    Here’s where I purchased mine and continue to buy the adhesive tape reels by the dozen. http://www.framingsupplies.com/3M/TapeDispenserGuns.htm

    With that said, it was a little tricky using it with the chipboard. Sometimes the chipboard came up a little bit. I just played with it a little bit and everything turned out fine. I may try glue next time just to compare. Anyone else have a suggestion?

    Thank you for your question.

    Hugs, Mary
