Looking up the year...

I have a lot of older stamps and finally found a challenge where I can use them proudly...however...they require a year that the stamps were made.
At first I figured that's it, how will I know when they were made.
But the internet has come to the rescue again.


I started by looking up the year that this Stampin Up set was released...2011!
I stamped the birds using StazOn jet black ink on red, green and yellow card stock and punched them out using the coordinating punch.
The base card  is green and I die cut the tree with Taylored Expressions "Shade Tree Cutting Plate" and white card stock.
I glued everything together and to finish the card I used the verse that came with the set and the StazOn black ink.

  3. Isn't it great to be able get out your older stamps again? This is a fabulous card: so bright and cheery and clever. The die cut tree is a perfect nest for those vibrant birds.

  4. Using the Bird Builder set is perfect for this time of year! Love it! That tree is so cool!! And don't worry about the age of the set you use too much, we just want something approximate. Plus you can always look up Stampin Up sets in Splitcoaststampers. That's where I find my information. Thank you for playing along with our color challenge at Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon!
