Swirly Seasonals

OMGoodness! Have you used your Swirly Bird set lately? If not, bring it down from the shelf, dust it off, and get stampin'!If you don't have the Swirly Bird Set, you need to fun to my online store and get. one. now.! I am continuously amazed at the versatility of this set, and today was no different.

Check out my Swirly Seasonal Thanksgiving Card!

Isn't that turkey adorable? I was going for a country look, and I love, love, LOVE how this turned out!

Here's what you need:
  • Stamp Sets:
    • Swirly Bird
    • Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Paper:
    • Very Vanilla [101650] - cut to 81/2" x 5 1/2" to use as your card base; strip for front of the card cut to 1 1/2" x 5"
    • Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack [141642] - 5 1/4" x 4"
    • Neutral paper scraps for the turkey body, head, and feathers. I used scraps I had leftover of Sahara Sand [121043] and Smoky Slate [131202]
  • Ink:
    • Bermuda Bay [131171]
    • Calypso Coral [126983]
    • Chocolate Chip [126979]
    • Old Olive [126953]
  • Extras:
    • Pearl Basic Jewels [119247]
    • Linen Thread [104199]
    • Stampin' Dimensionals [104430]
    • Multipurpose Liquid Glue [110755]

Here's what you do:
  1. On your scraps (I used Smoky Slate and Sahara Sand), stamp the base from the sail boat 5 times in Bermuda Bay & Calypso Coral. Cut around the stamped image to create the turkey feathers.
  2. Using Chocolate Chip, stamp the turkey body and turkey head with the Swirly Bird set.
  3. Glue the turkey feathers to the turkey body. Use a Stampin' Dimensional to attach the turkey head to the turkey body.
  4. Glue your Serene Scene paper (tan with white dots) onto the card base. Offset the paper slightly.
  5. Wrap your linen thread three times around your Very Vanilla strip and adhere on the back with glue or tape.
  6. Stamp "Happy Thanksgiving" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set onto the Very Vanilla Strip.
  7. Stamp the feet for the turkey on the Very Vanilla strip.
  8. Glue your Very Vanilla strip to the front of your card.
  9. Using a Stampin' Dimensional, attach your turkey on your strip above your stamped turkey feet.
There you have it! Easy! Fun! Cute! What do you think?
