Hi readers! Happy Tuesday to you! We’re popping in today for a sweet little inspiration from Simon pal and designer extraordinaire Lucy Abrams! I love the pretty patterned paper she used underneath the die cut to make it pop even more! Enjoy & read on for more details!
Hello. It’s Lucy Abrams here with a quick and easy card featuring some of my favorite new products from Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts.
To create this card, I first die cut the cute little bird from the Songbird Branch set repeatedly from some recycled cardstock then added a die cut stitched edge from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes die set. I adhered this panel to some Pebbles patterned paper which I had taped to a notecard, then spritzed it lightly with Calico Shine Mister Huey’s.
Next, I die cut some small Greeting Blocks frames from pink papers, then stamped the sweet sentiment from Hero Arts’ Hello You stamp set, before adhering the frames together with foam tape and adding some looped silver thread. Finally, I added my sentiment panel to the card with more foam tape.
I love the way that this one small Songbird die can create a whole feature background. Tip: to keep my birds straight, I drew out a grid lightly in pencil. It helped a lot!
Thanks so much for stopping by.I hope I have inspired you to take a look at your small dies and see what you can create. Have a happy day.
Very cute! I like the birds. That’s a lot of work.
Wow, EVERYTHING about this card is awesome, the birds, the tags!!!

Such a sweet card! Love those little birdies!
HOW PRETTY!!!! And even a piece of silver thread for the bird to build a nest! They DO like sparkly!!! LOL ;)
Wonderful! Love the subtle silver thread…and adore the bird cutouts.
This is really pretty. You have me looking through my small dies to see which I can try to repeat die cut for a similar effect. Hopefully it won’t turn out too wonky…

Love how Lucy used a die I wouldn’t know what to use for into a general card. I usually stay away from images and things that I wouldn’t be able to use like these birds for example. But seeing this does that I could pretty much use it for anything.
Is there a way we can add other products to the card kit of the month!
I want that bird!!! Gimme the bird!!!! Fantastic, Lucy!!!
