Good Morning everyone.  I am late posting today and I apologize to my early morning followers.  The post that I thought I scheduled last night did not post.  That is because I put the wrong date! DUH!!!  And then the internet was out.  So here we are.

Today’s card is a really quick and easy one.  It is all about the Flight & Airy DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  I love sharing how to make quick and simple cards.


Stampin' Up!, Flight and Airy, Notes of Nature, Bakers Twine 3 color pack, Pecan Pie, Jackie Beers



This card is all about the papers for sure.  The focal bird piece is fussy cut from a piece of DSP from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper.  There are a couple of sheets with bird images as well as several more general pieces on the back.  I do not mind fussy cutting and this one was pretty quick to do.  There are two important things about fussy cutting.  First is to have sharp scissors.  And our Paper Snips from SU are awesome.  The second tip is to turn the paper and not your scissors.  This keeps the line going smoothly without the stop and start marks.

There are only two sheets of the DSP used here.  The bird is the also the opposite side of the greenery layer.  And I love the Pecan Pie hexagonish design.  That may not be correct, or even a word.  But I love that design!  It brings out the branch beneath the bird.  And the Pecan Pie card base really helps to pull out that brown.


This being a very quick card, there is only the sentiment that is stamped on the front of the card.  This sweet “just a little note” seemed to fit with the bird.  I hope you catch the humor there.  The sentiment is from the Notes of Nature stamp set.  It is another great set, and bundle, in the Mini Catalog.  There are wonderful background builder stamps with that set.


To finish this card I added some of the Lemon Lolly  Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Three Color Pack, also in the Mini Catalog.  I wanted to bring out a bright color and the chest of the bird with that pop of yellow seemed perfect.  And I love Bakers Twine for creating small bows.  To add to that, I added a trio of Adhesive Backed Solid Gems from the Annual Catalog.

I appreciate you stopping by today!!
