Tweet Tweet

Oh boy, here's that bird again, huh, and another card from the Leadership boards. Can you believe there were so many beautiful projects on these boards? I still have tons left to share with you -- they are like the energizer bunny -- they keep going and going!!! Let me tell you about this card!

One of the elements that attracted me to this card was the use of the bird with the Bella Birds DSP. I remember when Stampin' Up! was a little weak on their DSP (background papers), but they certainly are on track now and everytime I see a new catalog, I want practically all of the DSP!!! The catalog just doesn't do the paper justice because it is so much prettier in person (I learned that over the past year or so). This year Stampin' Up! offered us a little sampler of all the DSP and yup, I want it all! Let me tell you also about two items used with this card -- the Good Friend Stamp Set and On Board So Tweet. If you remember, I showed another post earlier this week with the Good Friend Stamp Set and the bird. The difference in this card is that the bird is NOT from the stamp set, it is from the On Board So Tweet. The background flower and word phrase is from the Good Friend Stamp set. Yup, I heard you ask -- what is the On Board So Tweet. It's a new package on pre-cut chipboard! This really gives you such a great 3-D element to your card and is pretty simple to create! Just select your chipboard piece and trace it on your DSP, then cut it out. You then adhere it to your chipboard using adhesive. The Stampin' Up! Glue Stick is my adhesive of choice for chipboard. Once you do that, just take you rSanding Block and go around the edges to give you a nice and smooth look!!! Ta da!!!!

Below is a picture of the On Board So Tweet chipboard. You'll notice a few of the items missing, because it's so hard not to use when you get it!!!! You'll also see that you get birds and owls ... and this chipboard also coordinates with the Good Morning Sunshine DSP!!! Gotta love that!

The On Board So Tweet is located on pg. 183 of the 2009 Spring Summer IBC and sells for $14.95. What a bargain for all the chipboard elements you get in this package!!!

I hope you are enjoying all these ideas! On a side note, don't overlook the layout of the card above -- I love that! Well, actually I love everything about this card!!!!

Have an awesome day!!!

p.s. My order is scheduled to arrive today with some of the new goodies from the 2009 Spring Summer IBC. I can't wait to play and I'll let you keep you posted on the goods!
