I loved these cute little birds and their fun cages the very first time I laid eyes on the Aviary stamp set! This made it from my wish list to my home thanks to my sister Kari, who gave it to me for my birthday! (Yes, I have a wish list too!) Kari is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator also.
The beautiful Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper inspired this bright, happy card made with the Aviary stamp set.
When using punches, you would stamp first and then punch it out looking through the punch ‘window’. When using the Top Note Bigz Die, I cut my shape and then stamp the images. It was easy to get good placement with the clear-mount stamps. I stamped a sample on a scrap paper first to decide on my layout, then cut my shape and added the stamped images.
The middle bird cage was stamped first, then I masked the cage with a post-it note and stamped the stand so that it ended at the base of the cage. (The stand is taller than I needed and would have stamped right through the cage.)
I wanted to add ribbon wrapped around the top note, but I didn’t want to cover the cages so I used an x-acto knife to slice a ribbon slot on either side of the image. (I don’t know why the ribbon came out such a funky color in the photo. It looks MUCH better in real life-I promise.)
And the final step is adding bling. I generously added rhinestones to the cages. Love it!!
With a Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and a Top Note Bigz Die it’s easy to add a decorative interior for including a personalized note. This is the inside of the embossed love card I showed you in the previous post. And making five to ten at a time saves you time later. Just pull a die-cut Top Note from your stash whenever you need one!

“Stunning!” That’s how a friend described the background of this card at my stamp camp on Tuesday. And those stunning results are easily achieved with the Finial Press Textured Embossing folder. The same embossing folder was used to create the Cherry Cobbler heart. After punching it out the the textured cardstock with the large heart punch, the heart’s surface was run across a white craft padto create the contrast.
The Love tag was created with the scallopoval punch and the extra large oval punch. Love was punched with the scallop oval punch and then layered on top of the large oval punch. Then I punched a scallop oval of Cherry Cobbler clipped it in half and adherred it under the tag hanging out on the ends with brads to decorate it.
