Aviary: Finding Inspiration

Published by under cards | Dec 03 2010


The Aviary stamp set is one of my faves from the brand new Summer Mini Catalogue. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, and have hardly put it down since!
I chose the clear mount version for this set even though I often go for wood (I'm a traditionalist at heart) and it's been so easy to line up the stands, birds and cages. Great for those moments when you want to whip up a quick card like this no-layer version.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I was in a homewares shop today and I caught sight of this….

It's a "peg bag and plastic bag saver" set, with an uncanny resemblance to the Aviary stamp set!

My 7yo daughter asked me how they made the bag with 'Mum's Stampin' Up! stamps'. LOL. Freaky, isn't it?

But the moment I saw this I had a flash of inspiration (how could you not!) and thought of the tree from Thoughts & Prayers (p108 IB&C) or even the beautiful flourish from Baroque Motifs (p100) or Scribble This (p67). Will have to try hanging the birdcages from them! See, we can find inspiration from anywhere – even laundry accessories. Stay tuned for the finished version.
