Alaska Achievers Blog Hop Bird Banter

Aloha & welcome to another Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop.  I’m so excited to be a part of this group of hard working & talented demonstrators who have all earned the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Alaska!!  Follow along the hop and you’re sure to find many wonderful & creative new ideas!

The star of my blog post today is this charming little bird from Bird Banter!  The birds in this set all have different personalities.  Just love them!  Found the idea for this card on Pinterest, made by Carolynn Saunder.  And this was perfect for my Stampin’ Blends class!  We had fun coloring those birds.

Here’s the details to make my card:

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White(5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4), Real Red (5 3/8 x 4 1/8), Night of Navy (5 1/4 x 2), Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper -FREE Sale-a-Bration item! (5 1/4 X 2), Real Red & Whisper White scraps

One more reason I love this stamp set…

I try so hard to be organized, but I’m always running behind!!  So this is perfect for all those late birthday cards.
