Oh, the simplicity and beauty of using the Stampin’ Up! Bird Builder Punch!   The cropped bird silhouette in Night of Navy really pops against the polka dot pattern from Flower Pot Designer Series Paper.

Here’s my post and video (click above) from yesterday in case you missed it.  I shared tips on how I created this card and the delightful possibilities of embellishing designer series paper.


  • The WOW! factor for this card is the Stampin’ Up! Antique Brad on the wing.  Don’t you agree?

  • Today’s card highlights a number of Stampin’ Up! retiring products, including the polka dot pattern on the background and wing from Flower Pot Designer Series Paper.
  • Also headed for retirement are the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies.  I used one to crop the polka dot pattern below the bird.  There are 6 sizes for layering!  The collection of six dies are 50% off while supplies last!

  • The sentiment is from Lots of Thanks stamp set, a great basic to have on hand and also headed for retirement.  Retiring stamps are available for purchase through May 26.

    Love your use of designer paper in unusual ways….it inspires me to think out of my box! Thanks, Mary!

  4. I totally agree with you Mary, those brads are simply gorgeous, they add a touch of elegance to your design. And the fabulous Bird Builder punch is so fabulous, I love mine, specially because there is a ton of things, besides the pretty bird, that you can create with it.
    Oh, and I just got my Windows Collection dies, Woo Hoo!! that completes my set, I wanted this final set because of the awesome paper piercing pack, I just love it.
    Thank you Mary for sharing this really beautiful and stylish card.
