Birds & Blooms by Stampin’ Up!

I have a really weird “Déjà vu” about this card! I’ve been wanting to use one of the smaller bird framelits from Birds & Blooms by Stampin’ Up! as I think it is soooo cute! And so as  I was playing around making something else, I just grabbed the thinlits. And I cut out the cutie bird from Melon Mambo card stock that I had handy!

I also had the card front lurking around in my basket of unfinished projects. Yes I had gotten as far as putting on the washi tape and sliver of Silver glimmer paper before I ran out of steam. Anyway, I love the combination of Night of Navy and Melon Mambo already on the card, so I simply stuck on 3 of the birds I had cut out and slapped it onto a Night of Navy Card base. I love the little bird on the left facing the other way. It’s a really simple, but cute card. And I just can’t shake the feeling I’ve seen it somewhere before, hence the “Déjà vu” feeling. I searched Pinterest but I couldn’t find one similar so maybe it’s just my imagination. If not please do let me know, won’t you?

I have been having fun digging around in my basket of unfinished projects again! I had to empty it out, as it was getting a tad full. One of the unfinished items was the background on the card below. I had stamped out the grey butterflies using the wing details image from Watercolor Wings by Stampin’ Up!. And I had stuck on the strip of washi tape but that was all! I was stuck on it for a good while and then totally forgot about it to be honest!

I came across it whilst I was sorting out the basket of unfinished projects and I was actually about to throw it away, when I had a flash of inspiration! So instead, I grabbed my Melon Mambo ink pad and Watercolor Wings by Stampin’ Up! again and finished the card off! I stamped out the body of the smaller butterfly and then I added some bling with the butterfly cut out using Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies and Silver metallic thread. Then I spattered some Melon Mambo around with an aqua painter to lessen the whiteness. I really like it now. It’s a cute design. I don’t think I’ve noticed the wings being used as a butterfly background before, but I could be wrong! (I usually am lol!)

What do you think? I hope you like it!
