Hi there! Recently, I had a couple of birthday cards to make; so I decided to use those cute Bird Crazy stamps by Tim Holtz. I love them! I haven't bought the dies or accessories stamps for them yet, but they are on my list. Both cards use papers from Tim's Wallflower collection.
First up is this sweet little bird that I made for a dear stamping friend. The pattern paper was adhered to a kraft cardstock base. The image was stamped onto Ranger watercolor paper with black Archival Ink. I colored the bird with Copic markers and inked the edges with Squeezed Lemonade and Tea Dye Distress Inks. After adding some gold beads, I adhered the panel to kraft cardstock. A bit of lace and paper string from Tim was added to the left side. The Tim birthday sentiment was stamped onto a piece of cardstock with the edge embossed in clear embossing powder.
Next up is a card made in a similar way. This time, though, I did a lot of fussy cutting with the bird, some flowers and the butterflies. The sentiment was stamped onto kraft cardstock and attached with foam squares. A bit of Stickles was used to add highlights to the flowers and butterflies. All edges were again inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
This card was made for my husband's birthday. I like the dimension it gets from the fussy cuts.
With Easter just a few weeks away, I have had to change gears a bit and make cards for that occasion. I'll be sharing those soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate the kind comments you leave and look forward to reading them. Enjoy the week ahead!
