Hello my stamping friends! I’m just gonna say it outright– You NEED this! 13 fast and super fun DIY cards!

Today I have a different type of post for you (and hopefully every Thursday) where I am going to “bring back” a stamp set that in the past I created a lot of cards with but have not shown the stamp set in a while….  I guess they call these “throw back” posts.  I know I always get so wrapped up in the “new stuff” that I forget about all the awesome stamps and projects I have made in the past.  And if you are NEW to stamping, NEW to Stampin’ Up! and/or NEW to following me, these are projects that you may have missed!  One stamp set & so many ideas is kinda my stamping mantra anyways, so this is right up my ally.  And it will be fun to bring back the old and forgotten….


Swirly Bird

I am going to kick off this new featured post by bringing back SWIRLY BIRD.  I used this set to death back when it first came out.  It has awesome big bold images and there are so many different things you can do with it.  And, there are also coordinating thinlits!  You will find the stamp set on page 159 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

One Stamp Set & So Many Ideas

Like I said, these are all cards I made and posted several years ago, but since this fun stamp set is still available, I thought I would share again!  Some of the colors, embellishments and “greetings” may be retired now, but you absolutely could copy these ideas and adjust a bit. As you will see, there are so many ways to use the pieces in this stamp set!



Please keep in mind that I am re-sharing old photo’s, so the sizing and photography may look differently than today.  But I hope you still enjoy getting all these ideas!


Just like I still do today, I love to grab just a few colors and a greeting set and come up with lots of ideas!





Free Tutorial

Swirly Bird Card Collection Tutorial and Video

This stamp set was featured as a card kit way back when.  Since I am showing all these ideas today, I thought I would also share the video & tutorial with you from when I did the card kit.  The video shows lots of tips for making the cards in the tutorial, but also for using this stamp set in general.  Just like with the pictures, keep in mind that this is an OLD VIDEO and may look a bit different than what you are used to from me.




More Card Ideas

Like I said…..I made a lot of cards with this stamp set!!!


Flying-Kite-Card-with-Green-Kite-and Red-Bird-and-Bright-Sunshine


Since these are all old cards, from old posts, I am sorry that I don’t have all the details and recipes….but I hope if you like this set, just seeing all these ideas will inspire you!  The set is fun and easy to work with and so very versatile.





Can you tell how much I loved this stamp set.  It is still available to purchase, but my gut feeling is it may retire when the new catalog comes out in June.  So, if you like it, make sure to grab it now along with the coordinating Thinlits (we all know how thinlits tend to sell out when it’s announced that they are retiring.


I would love to hear from you!
