Stamp Review Crew: Free As A Bird Edition

Free as a bird

It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Free As a Bird Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop, whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Free As a Bird set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from the amazing Mary Haugen.  Isn’t her work awesome!  After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Charlet Mallett. I always loves what she does. Be prepared to be inspired as you travel along on today’s hop!

Colors of the Day

For those of you who faithfully follow my blog, you know that I am in love with the Free As a Bird Suite.  The paper is beautiful, with today’s card pairing floral with dots in a front flap card.  The inside of the flap is simply adorned with a single blossom…

  1. Super pretty card Ann. Love the way you’ve draped the ribbon – beautiful! Kelly x

  2. These cards are just beautiful. Also, thanks so much for sending the Jar of Love and various ribbon spools from your “retirement sale”. They arrived Saturday and are wonderful.

  3. Oh my goodness! What a line up; so much eye candy. Your projects are simply gorgeous as always.

  4. Another fabulous Bird Ballad card to add to your growing repertoire Ann – you have me hooked on this set too now! A great SRC hop today – lots of fabulous inspiration.

  5. Fabulous cards, Ann!

  6. Wow you have a whole flock of cards to look at here…..beautiful!

  7. A full time job just trying to keep up with your creativity. It is one winner after another I simply have to make. Your talent is a gift from the Lord you have chosen to magnify; your willingness to share demonstrates your love for him and his children.

  8. Sweet, sweet! I love the lace corner frame and the addition of the pearls. Your coloring is amazing, as usual. And, as usual, another beautiful card.
