Swirly Scribbles Suite Sayings Card

It has been a couple of weeks of celebrations around here lately. My great-nephew turned 2, and my youngest son turned 16! Parties and fun times were had all around. This card was not given to either one of them (because I feel that the colors are a bit too feminine for either one of them), but it is a card that could be given for a birthday, if you wanted. It could also be a card for any other celebration-worthy event. I hope you like it!

All supplies are from Stampin' Up!:
Stamp Sets: Suite Sayings, Swirly Bird, Watercolor Wash
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Archival Basic Black
Card Stock: Whisper White Thick, Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker, Decorative Label Punch, Linen Thread, Brights Sequin Assortment, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Dimensionals

On the Whisper White panel (underneath the Flirty Flamingo swirls), I used the Watercolor Wash Background Stamp. It is kind of hard to tell, because I stamped it off twice before stamping it on my panel. I used Daffodil Delight, but I wanted it to look very much like a watercolor wash had just been used on it. You can see it a bit better in real life, but I like it. I didn't want it to "jump out" at you, and take away from the other elements on the card.

I hope you all have something to celebrate today!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I love it. I think the swirly die is so versatile.

    1. Thanks Phyllis! I've had it for a while and this is the first time I have really used it. I think I was intimidated by all the amazing cards and things I was seeing. But I like how it turned out! Thanks!
