Free As A Bird Card Set | New 2019-20 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue

Hi and welcome, today is an exciting day as the new 2019-20 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is now live, which means all the new (and returning) goodies are now available to purchase.

I have previously shared the below sneak peek card using a new stamp set from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue. The new product I used for this card was the Free As A Bird Bundle (which consists of the Free As A Bird stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies).

If you would like more details on this card, you can view my blog post by clicking here, or on the image above :)

Well, today I have some more inspiration for you using the Free As Bird Bundle. I decided to create a set of cards all with the same layout, but using different colours and 2 different sentiments. I was inspired to create this set of cards by this weeks TGIF "Create a Set" Challenge #214. The layout of my cards was semi inspired by a card I created back in June 2017 (click here to see my layout inspiration)

A couple of my colour combinations were inspired by some other challenges, including the Color Throwdown #545 (however I was a little slow in finishing my cards so missed out on entering my cards in the challenge..oops!) and the Fab Friday Colour Challenge #164. The rest I just grabbed some of my favourite colours and had a play :)

All the cards were made by stamping the bird image on to some Whisper White cardstock in Black Memento ink. I then cut out the birds using the largest Stitched Nested Labels die. Then I coloured the images using my Stampin' Blends (see below for the colour combinations used).

Using the same colour ink as my card base, I stamped the leaves image 3 times in each corner of the card front. And then using the same ink colour, I stamped my sentiment in the top left of my die cut label.

I attached some Silver Metallic thread to the back on my die cut label (using a little snail) and then adhered it to my card front using some Stampin' Dimensionals.

I'd love to know which of the cards/colours is your favourite.

My favourite colour is Blue, and one of my favourite SU colours is Bermuda Bay, so my favourite cards were pretty easy to choose (the Bermuda Bay & Balmy Blue versions), however I really love the bold Poppy Parade one as well as the Highland Heather versions.

Here is the Color Throwdown colour palette that inspired my first bunch of cards in this set. The Stampin' Up! colours I interpreted from this image was Rich Razzleberry, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green & Soft Suede.
