It’s so funny how sometimes one of the new stamp sets just doesn’t trigger any creativity…until you see a card someone else has made. Does that happen to you? This was one of them for me…I’m not sure if I even noticed it was in the Occassion Catalog!
I was at Onstage,(the biannual Stampin’ Up! conference for Demonstrators), and one of the Demonstrators presented this stamp set with several really cute cards. I knew right then and there, I would have to play with this set!
This set has a lot of great sentiments to go with it, mostly birthday greetings. I used the “STILL SUSPICIOUSLY YOUNG LOOKING, I SEE” stamp for a card I made for a friend that just turned 65 but looks 50…or less. I’ve used the sentiments from this set on non-Bird Banter cards that I’ve made.
I used the masking technique on several of these cards. Here’s an example of masking on a card that I didn’t put in the above collage. I just stamp the image on some full-sticky Post-it notes. Then I fussy-cut right on, or just inside the line of the image. Then I have several masks that I can use for different cards. The mask is usually re-usable.
