There are many, many gorgeous new products in the latest version of the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, but Swirly Bird gets my vote for the set that does it all:
- Stamps: Swirly Bird, Tin of Cards
- Color Palette: Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, Very Vanilla
- Accessories: Big Shot, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I love the variety in the images, and I love the versatility of both the stamps and the thinlits. This card is quick and easy to put together and I already have a few ideas for changing it up. I also love that Stampin’ Up! brought the original 2015-2016 Tin of Cards stamp set back, but also added a new Designer Tin of Cards set for 2016-2017.
I want you to note that I avoided the (very strong) urge to make this a blue and green card. It would be gorgeous with Pool Party or Island Indigo. I’m making an effort to expand my horizons, and since orange isn’t exactly at the top of my list of favorites, I stretched.
I inked the Swirly shapes in Peekaboo Peach and then tapped the edges with Tangerine Tango. Each one came out a little differently from the last, which is what flowers do in real life, right? I like that.
