Free as a Bird Collides with Mosaic Mood

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the June Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom. You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Nicely done, Sandra!  Welcome one and all.

The theme for our blog hop this month is anything, anything at all, from the new 2019-20 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. You have seen the new catty by now so you know that is quite a universe to draw from -- my pick is Free as a Bird stamp set (see AC pp. 90-92).
This sweet card starts with a Mint Macaron Cardstock base that coordinates with the colors in this beautiful sheet from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (see all of the designs of this SDSP packet, AC p. 167). Using Memento Ink stamp the single bird on Very Vanilla Cardstock and color using Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake Dark and Light, Calypso Coral Light) and easily fussy cut (we can't have a die for everything!). The branch is a die from Seasonal Layers (AC p. 195) in Soft Suede and the leaves are punched using the Leaf Punch (AC p. 187) in Mossy Meadow and Vellum Cardstock.

The flowers and leaves images are stamped on an angled cut piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using the new 2019-21 In Color Rococo Rose and Garden Green. Use the Subtle 3D embossing folder, then sponge the edges with Early Espresso. On a separate piece of Very Vanilla stamp another flower, lightly sponge the center for some color and easily fussy cut. Stamp your sentiment and Punch+ using the Everyday Label punch (AC p. 187) and sponge the edges with Early Espresso.
Definition of terms:
  1. In Color - Stampin' Up! introduces 5 new colors every year that have a catalog life of two (2) years. These new colors complement the 40 exclusive colors that historically stay current for several years.
  2. Punch+ means to trim using punch or scissors to create a new shape. 
I have not stamped the inside sentiment or the envelope, but I will use the same color scheme. A detailed instruction sheet is available upon request with any purchase of $20 or more through my online store using this month's host code. (See below.)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my card using products from the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.

Hope you were able to subscribe in time for the June Paper Pumpkin kit.  The July Paper Pumpkin kit will coordinate with 3 new suites (collection of stamps, paper, dies, punches, DSP, ribbon, embellishments) from the 2019-20 annual catalog that will surely step up your projects! The kit is already packed with goodies to make 9 full-sized cards. Follow my Facebook page for discussions with other Paper Pumpkin subscribers. Not a subscriber already? No problem. Contact me and let's get you signed up by July 10 so that you do not miss out any more!
If you placed an order from me last year, you received a copy of the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog in the mail.  If you did not receive one, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and get a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas. As always, if you have any questions, or need any assistance whatsoever, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
