Ppa31 bird inspiration


  • Stampin up elements of style hummingbird Are these stamp images from Stampin' Up!?  Not yet but they will be.  This is an early sneak peek of "Elements of Style" from the Summer Mini Catalog (available May 1).
  • The floral image really grooves when embossed in white.
  • Like this style but can't wait for the set?  Try any of Stampin' Up!'s
    background stamps or any large stamp image as an alternative.
  • To create the three panels, stamp first on card stock in a width that's easily divided by three.
  • Length can be whatever you need.  For this card, each width is 1 1/8" wide.  My original image was stamped on 3 3/8" wide card stock, then divided.  Make sense?

  1. Amazing card Mary. I had to make my own version as the cutting the background stamp into 3s was something I had to try. Thanks for your inspiration. Your fabulous card has been linked from my blog to yours. Cheers!

  2. okay I just have to ask, how do you get new stamps before they come out???? What’s your secret Mary???? Have a great day today! Barb
