Sneak Peek: Sweet Songbirds in Tahitian Tide

It is time for the Festive Friday Challenge!  What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.


I chose blue, pink, music, patterned paper, and rhinestones from the Inspo List for my card.


I used the soon to be released Sweet Songbirds bundle (2022-23 Annual Catalog debuting May 1). Since blue was one of the items on the Inspo List, I had to use the beautiful new In Color, Tahitian Tide.  It is a bright and happy blue.  I used the 2023-24 In Color DSP (6" x 6" paper)  for the wing and the panel.  This new DSP comes in all the color collections and I love the designs which include a plaid, polka dots, flowers, and a dashed stripe.  The pink is represented in the Polished Pink Loose Flower Flourish.  In the center of each flower I added a rhinestone.  The musical notes are part of the Sweet Songbirds stamp set and a perfect way to represent music from the Inspo List.


All the stamped images are from the Sweet Songbirds stamp set.  There are 24 photopolymer stamps in the set which includes 7 sentiments.  The Sweet Songbirds stamp set can also be purchased as a bundle which includes the Songbird Builder punch.

Oh my goodness, this is darling Sharon! The Tahitian Tide Songbird is so cute, but then you added the details of her DSP wing, flowering branch, musical notes continuing off the circle and awesome fun fold! You’ve sold me on this set!!💜

So sweet and adorable, Sharon! Now that I have seen what you did with this bundle, it is definitely going onto my wish list! I LOVE this new In cheery! Have a wonderful weekend!


Sharon, this is absolutely adorable. Your little bluebird singing up a storm reminds me of the birds in our garden! I love this little scene you created


Just adorable Sharon! I was so sad we didn't get that set on preorder initially here in the UK and your card is a great example of why I NEED it in my collection! The blue is so vibrant but it's the little details such as the flowers and birdsong that really make this card. I love it!

I love your tweet little songbird and that shade of blue is wonderful. I love the plaid paper and all the little details you’ve added especially the blooms and the musical notes.
