Heartfelt Stampin' Up Event: What Fun!
More Christmas In July Class Cards

Elegant Bird Die Meets Mocha Morning: Christmas Cards

Time to share some of our Christmas In July class cards with you.  Today's card uses the Elegant Bird Die which I had not even noticed until Beth Stewart  showed us some beautiful cards featuring it at Convention in May.  Thanks Beth!


Some retiring products featured here - Many Merry Messages stamp set and the Triple Layer Doily Punch plus the always elegant Mocha Morning Specialty DSP. 

Here's another version - we had lots of choices for this one.


This one features the chunky champagne glass glitter on the wing.  We used the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive sheets - stick some to cardstock, run through the die, then peel the backing off and dip in the glitter - too easy!

Other cardstock:  Crumb Cake base for the first one and Soft Suede base for the next two cards.  Also Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. And some lovely brads - neutrals glimmer brads and antique brads.  Plus some little ones for the eyes.

To make these cards we stuck strips of cardstock and DSP to a rectangle scrap of cardstock - we used gluesticks.  Then we ran this through the Big Shot with the elegant bird die (which will be back next month!)  Strip side down if you want your bird to face right and strip side up if you'd prefer it to face left.

And one more version before we sign off for today.  This one features a lovely fine dark brown glitter from a multipack.  Very sparkly. 


Retirement list orders are still coming in - it is not too late to order if something has caught your eye from the retired list.  (Unless it is one of the out of stock items listed above.)  Get in touch before the end of the month if I can help with an order.  We are experiencing a bit of a longer than usual shipping time. The warehouse crew are working overtime I believe to get them out as fast as they can but we might need to allow a few more days than usual while pacing for the postie!

Happy stamping!

Cheers, Sue



These are lovely Sue! Very inspiring. :)

Thank you, Sue...I've been searching for the glittery-winged Elegant bird for my SAS on the weekend...and found her on your page! I just had to remind myself which way that wing went. Saw it at Convention and fell in love. I've been stockpiling Champagne Glimmer paper since the new catty came out...jsut waiting for this weekend. XXmaz
