Outside my stamp room window, I have been watching the birds play in the bushes. I love that I can see them but they can’t see me so I can just relax and know that they aren’t frightened away. Today, while listening to them sing (probably because they were enjoying the 74 degree weather), I decided to stamp some birds. I hope you enjoy these bird cards and they will inspire you too! For those in my Stamp Clubs, you will be creating these cards in June. 🙂 This first one is a pull card…pull the ribbon and the bird “flies” over to her friend. Isn’t it cute? I love this style of card! I also used a technique for making the clouds. Very simple but very fun, don’t ya think? Stampin’ Up artists are the BEST! I love Cheep Talk! It just makes me smile! This card is called a Locking Card. I don’t know if you can see it, but the flap rests underneath the birdcage “locking” it in place. This stamp set, “Aviary” is a lot of fun to play with and I also added a touch of the “Always Elegant” stamp set also. Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, and Crumb Cake. It’s so soft and pretty. I was singing, “Mister Bluebird on my shoulder” while I was making it…. but I couldn’t remember the words. Zippa–dee Do Da, Zippa–dee-a…something something something…. I must tell you that this card didn’t photograph well. When it’s sitting up it looks like a birdhouse but in the picture, well, it looks odd. Anyhoo, I used the Two-Step Bird punch, the large scallop circle punch and the 1 3/4″ circle punch. Oh, and can you see the wood grain texture on the roof? Texturz Plates and the Big Shot! LOVE it!!! This is sure to brighten up someone’s day!
