Woooo! Hooooo!

Good good morning to you Stampers!

Can you guess why I am so chipper this morning? I FINALLY got my box pf pre-ordered goodies and the NEW CATALOG!!! All I can say is OMGosh! It is just fantastic, better than before and it is not leaving my side for at least a week! Stampin' Up ROCKS!

Ok now that I have you excited to know the catalog is so wonderful but bummed because you can't see it's something cute I made for my friend, Lynda's birthday today.

I used mostly retiring or retired product and stamps on this but love these colors together and the birds are just too cute. I really love to paper piece them like I did here.

For the card I used the Mojo Monday sketch of the week (yes, I know it's Thursday!)and the Color Throw Down to get me started. I started out with a Bashful Blue base and added some retired DSP I think it was from a Simply Scrappin kit. Next I added my Delicate Dots DSP from Sale-A-Bration, matted it with So Saffron and stamped my bird image from the A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set (LOVE IT!)on WW and matted that the same.
I stamped my bird again on a scrap piece of the DSP, cut it out and adhered it to the original stamped bird. Next I stamped and cut out the party hat and stamped my sentiment and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. I punched some Brocade Blue with my 1 3/8" Circle Punch and then some more DSP with my Scallop Circle Punch and popped it all up on a Dimensional. The final touch are the four Metal Stickers from the Joann's Dollar Spot in the corners.

For the box I used the same retired DSP and ran it through my Big Shot with the Box #2 Die. This is one of the best dies I have ever bought along with the Top Note! I put the box together with just one little piece of Sticky Strip, added some chocolate and decorated the front with some more paper pieced birds with party hats and tied some white ribbon around it.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to get the kids to school and then coming back to stamp stamp stamp with my new goodies!
