Paisleys &Posies - I thank you for your part in my journey.


Before I share my entry for this week's Global Design Project - TWO WORDS - Hostess Code! The new code for September is available and if you want a special thank you gift in the mail, add it to your next online order!

This week it is a CASE the Designer challenge (#gdp052) and the designer none other than Teneale Williams! I loved everything about her card and decided to follow her sketch to a T.

I love the new Paisleys & Posies Bundle in Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Catalogue and have been playing  with it quite a bit! Today I share a rather cute little bird build with some of the Paisley patterns from the bundle!

The Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series paper is so beautiful...

I simply had to stick to this stunning sketch by Teneale!

Kraft Cardstock and Copper really go together!

Love the Burlap Ribbon!

My Product List


  • Although it would have been easy to cut out the Copper embossed images with the coordinating framelits dies, I decided to cut by hand. It worked better in this case for my little birdy's wing/body proportions!
  • I cut 3 strands of the Burlap ribbon for a narrower ribbon - it really cuts easily!
  • As for my little bird's feet, I used and image from a retired set and used the little raindrop shapes from the Paisley Framelits Dies for a beak!
  • By now I have a stash of Stampin' Up! sequins and found different ones for my eye and to add more sparkle to my card!
  • An extra Vellum layer makes my bird pop even more!
I really hope you like my idea! Let me know if you want to own this beautiful set or go to my ONLINE SHOP!

Take care! I hope this week treats you well!

  1. What a clever idea about making a bird out of the Paisley shapes and how good it looks. The vellum layer certainly makes the bird pop even more.
    Great card!

    1. Thanks Tracey! I'm working on a heart shape and hope to share soon!

  2. Look forward to seeing the Paisley heart shape soon then😃
