DIY Paper Little Yellow Birds

Happy Saturday!!

I made this clean and simple card the other day while stamping with my friend Peggy.  She had the idea that we should stamp our own paper and I love doing that.  So this is what resulted.  I kept the card very simple because I really love how the paper turned out, with those cute little birds!  What do think?  Does it need more embellishing or layers?  I sometimes think I keep my cards too simple.


Paper: DIY stamped on whisper white, kraft Stampin’ Up!
Ink: Tim Holtz broken china, SU! summer sun, basic black
Stamps: Bird on a branch, Spring Solitude, Fresh Cuts (sentiment) all Stampin’ Up!
Accessories: So Saffron Ribbon, mini brads, prismacolor pencils

I kept forgetting to tell you all how much fun I had for my belated birthday celebration last Saturday!!  My best friend took me out for the day, we went strolling and shopping in a quaint village along the Lakeshore, which included a visit to a great scrapbook shop, after having a lovely brunch.  Then out for a glass of wine (or two) at a fun wine bar, before meeting more friends for dinner at Miso (a sushi restaurant).  It was a really great day, and I was really touched that she had put so much thought into what I would enjoy and planning this wonderful day for me!

This week just flew by for me! How about all of you?  Are the days getting shorter??  There just isn’t enough time for everything I want to do!  Maybe if I slow down, time will slow down too?  🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Beautiful card! I am so glad to hear about your birthday celebration. What a fun time you had!!! I agree…days are much shorter now. I find it hard to fit everything into one day, as well. If you learn the secret of how to stretch time, please share! LOL


  2. This is so pretty – it’s not too simple – I think it’s perfect! I love that you made your own patterned paper – TFS!


  3. So, Deena, what a lovely idea to stamp your own paper! It looks gorgeous, I should try this!
    I’m glad to read that you spent a lovely day with your friends!
    Hugs, Alina
