Bird Banter Long Note Cards

Spring is just around the corner and the Bird Banter stamp set is so reflective of Spring.
I hope you enjoy the 4 long narrow note cards I made using that stamp set.

I used the Whisper White long narrow note cards featured on Page 19 of the Occasions catalogue to make these 4 cute cards.  They are colourful, easy to make and what's great is that they're gender neutral.

Birthday:  "A Little Birdie Told Me it Was Your Birthday".  The birds and balloon were stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock, fussy cut and adhered on a stamped branch.  All images were coloured with the Blendabilities.  The background was stamped with the dot stamp from Timeless Texture.  I used the tutti-frutti adhesive backed sequins as embellishments.
The focal point was backed with Daffodil Delight before adding it the front of the note card.

Thank You:  What a wonderful thank you note to give to family/friends etc.  I just love this parrot.  A strip of Tutti-Fruitti DSP is added at the bottom and the art piece if adhered to a piece of Tutti-Fruitti DSP before adding it to the note card.  Again, the adhesive backed sequins are used.

My son groaned when he saw the sentiment for this one - "Just a Little Toucan of my Appreciation".  The toucon was added to a stitched oval, the background of which is again stamped using the dot stamp from "Timeless Texture".  A strip of Tuttit-Fruitti DSP edged with Daffodil Delight cardstock punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch.

These little Budgies reminded me of the Budgies I used to have.  These little birds were so smart they knew how to open the cage and would hang upside down on the edge of the cage door.  They provided hours of entertainment for myself and my husband.
I used Bermuda Bay to mat the focal piece, and again adhesive backed sequins were used.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Bird Banter, Timeless Texture
Inks:  Black Memento, Blendabilities, Bermuda Bay
Papers:  Long Narrow Note cards (Whisper White), Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Tutti-Frutti DSP
Accessories:  Stitched Oval Framelit, Oval punch, Adhesive backed sequins (tutu-fruitti), Decorative Label Edge punch

Easter Bunny

All I need to know about life I learned from the

don't put all your EGGS in one basket
walk softly and carry a big CHOCOLATE bunny
everyone needs a FRIEND who is all EARS
don't count your CHICKENS before they are hatched
there's no such thing as too much CANDY
all work and no play can make you a BASKET case
let HAPPY thoughts multiply like RABBITS
walk softly and carry a big CARROT
everyone is entitled to a bad HARE day
some body parts should be a little FLOPPY
keep your PAWS off other people's jelly beans
good things come in small SUGAR coated packages
the grass is always greener in another's basket
An EASTER BONNET can tame even the wildest hare
to show your TRUE COLORS you have
to come out of your shell
sometimes you have to HUNT for
the  GOOD THINGS in life
