It's made from punches. I used three circle punches for the body, and the two step bird punch for the 'parents' wings and the branch part for the little birds wing. I used the photo corner punch for the birds becks. Also the hats are created by punching out a circle then cut a wedge. I just drew the legs on. I love the 'little family' that you can create with this idea.
The little sentiment is from the current level one hostess set in the Autumn-Winter mini - you can earn the whole set by hosting an event/workshop with orders or personally order yourself a minimum of $350 worth of products.

A version of this card was shown to us at a recent training session. Isn't it neat!! The stencil is made from the circle Big Shot die and then I sponged thru it followed by stamping in Stazon thru it with the Circle Circus stamp. I tweaked it a bit to finish it off two what Sophie demonstrated but I think it gives it a real Retro look. It's great to see the same set used in different ways.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Yesterday I had a fun day crafting with a friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demo Bron Helsop http://bronheslop.wordpress.com/ and we made our own DSP (Designer Series Paper) using the Circus Circle stamp set and the yummy in colours -Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Soft Suede. We decided we would make the lovely album set that was shown to us at our Auckland Regional Training by Sandee Everette. This cool WOW project is made using the scallop envelope die and the wonderful Big Shot machine. The album is 6 envelopes tied together with ribbon and the little wallet that holds it is made using 2 envelopes. We made a card to match - aren't they cute!!

here are three more samples of my Medallion stamp cards. The Soft Suede one I wheeled the Very Vogue wheel inked with Soft Suede over the versamarked Medallion stamp instead of using the spritzer.

I will get my teenage son to see if he can work out why - isn't it handy having one of those at home! lol Speaking if which last night my son's rock band had a gig, it was the first one for the 3 new band members although Aaron has done a few before. He even invited his 'little sister' on to the stage to sing one of the songs. The band writes all their own music and Kelly often writes their lyrics which is pretty good as they are all under 16! I was a very proud mum that's for sure. I will post a pic later today - so you know who will be rocking the music charts in a few years!! lol look out for "THE THIRD SYSTEM"!!!!

I love Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip together!!
I don't know why they go so well together but they just do!!
All the stamped images on this card are from the set Always. I stamped the image in versamark first then onto the coloured ink, so after I stamped it I covered it in clear embossing powder and heat set it. It just seems to give it some more depth. I did a bit of sponging with the Baja Breeze.
The top of the card is embossed with the Big Shot Lots of Dots embossing folder. A bit of Chocolate Chip DSP, a big Chocolate Chip bow and it's all done!
The sentiment says - Always in my mind, forever in my Heart - which is such a lovely statement. I did originally start to make this card for my daughter who turns 13 this week but she saw me making it so I will have to sneak in and make another card for her - but the sentiment would still be the same! :)
Thanks for stopping by.

I am sure you are like me and LOVE getting roses! This set called 'A Rose is a Rose' is one of the sets that Stampin' Up! has on special at the moment. Isn't it beautiful - it's so easy to get the depth of colour as shown here.
On Whisper White I stamped the base colour - Regal Rose - then the out line stamp I stamped in Versamark then in Rose Red. Using my Stampin'-ma-gig I stamped it over the base. Then I quickly covered it with clear embossing powder and heated it with the Heat Tool. While it was still hot I dipped it in the clear embossing powder again and reheated it. This just gives it a greater gloss. I did this for the leaf too. I used Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss for the leaf. The background DSP is one from Bella's Rose and the card is based on Kiwi Kiss. The sentiment is from the Hostess Set Sweet Little Sentiments. I stamped it and then cut each word out separately. I did some sponging around the DSP and I put it thru the Lot of Dots Big Shot embossing folder.
If you would like to order this or any other of the sets listed in the previous post, contact me ASAP email@example.com
