Mix-It-UP! Monday

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but added a couple additional products (found in the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot-Light Sunday card on the left........
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the right........
To upgrade this card I wanted to add a couple extra layers and I think that worked out perfectly for this card.
I began this card exactly the way I did my Spot-Light Sunday card ........ And that sentiment (from the 'Stylized Birthday' set) was stamped onto a 4"x5-1/4" Whisper White panel.
I used the 'Swirly Scribbles' Thinlits to die-cut three large swirly circles for the front of my card.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight cardstock for each of these circles. Then after the circles were die-cut........I stamped each of these die-cut circles with the 'Swirly Bird' stamp set.  I used Watermelon Wonder, Pumpkin Pie and Crush Curry ink.
On top of each cardstock circle I die-cut a swirly birds nest circle to place into the center of each circle.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight cardstock to create my swirly birds nest circles.
On each of the swirly birds nest circles I punched out the smallest flower from the 'Blossom Bunch' punch in coordinating colors ....... And adhered those flowers to each of the bird nest circles.
Before I adhered down each of the three circles ...... I used the splatter stamp included in the 'Swirly Bird' set and stamped splatter marks all over my Whisper White panel.  Then when each of the circles were adhered down onto my Whisper White panel ....... I came in and added a couple leafs to each of the completed circles.
So there you have it friends ........ Two cards created with the use of the new 'Swirly Bird' stamp set and 'Swirly Scribbles Thinlits'.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday project with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. Lovin' that Stylized Birthday stamp! Such a pretty font and so sharp and crisp looking. Swirly Bird and Scribbles has become one of my FAVES. Love how you used the scribbles on your card.
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. THANKS Lynn! I totally agree.....The Stylized Birthday stamp is a FAVORITE for me.

  3. Darling texture the die cuts add layered over the blocks of color!
