Sense of Whimsy

Fuss Free Friday with Swirly Bird

It’s Fuss Free Friday … and Swirly Bird stamp set is a great set to be fuss free with.

Fuss Free Friday with Swirly Bird

I have utilised the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #042 for the layout of this card. Here is the sketch.

GDP042 Sketch Challenge

I used the Swirly Scribble Thinlits for the circular element and all the stamping on the Whisper White layer is done with various images from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set. Super quick and easy to create multiples. And don’t forget that the stamp set and dies are available as a bundle at 10% discount on both.

The greeting is from Thoughtful Banners stamp set, cut into banner shapes as per the sketch. And instead of a heart feature, I have used Swirly Bird flowers and leaves to create a floral feature.

Peekaboo Peach Close Up

I used Peekaboo Peach and Rich Razzelberry in this card, but decided to try some different colour ways  …. here is Take 2.

The Pool Party ink creates a lovely contrast to the Rich Razzleberry swirl and background card.

The curved banner is from Thoughtful Banners stamp set, punched out with the Duet Banner Punch … grab these two as a bundle at 10% discount on both.

The third card uses Island Indigo with the Pool Party ink … and a slightly different layout.

So many different possibilities … this will make a great standby card when I need something in a hurry.

In the end, I chose this version for my submission to the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge.

  • Yes!!!! I just love these colours Cheryll!!! Well done!! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge xx

  • I love then all Cheryll, I think why number 3 seems to be a favourite is due to the colour. The blue seems to pop out so much more than the other colours, on the white. You have done a good job on all three. Thank you..

  • Thanks Paula. Haha …. number three looks less “I just got out of bed dishevelled” than the other two. That must be all in how I have placed the swirl! 🙂
