The Stampin' Up! Two Step Bird Punch Extra Large produces an exquisite element in a snap. I suspected the Baja Bird would perch happily on the lattice die cut–kind of reminds me of a leaded glass window. Oh man, just got a new idea for the lattice!
It was a delight to to find the time to jump in on the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge (SC297) this week.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Stampin' Up! 2-Sided Designer Series Paper is perfect for popping out a coordinating pattern for the birds wing.
- Are you new to Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper? Consider a Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack in one of the core color families to get started (forty 2-sided sheets in 10 colors for $19.95). I choose Baja Breeze from the Subtles collection.
- Layer it! It's amazing how layering a several punches turns up the "wow" volume on a sentiment.
- Don't be afraid to layer color on color. For example, I layered the Baja Breeze Little Leaves Sizzlits Die stem over Baja Breeze card stock . . . the texture defines the accent . . . not a contrast in colors. Cool.
