I am finally getting around to using a coffee cup die set that I won from Top Dog Dies in the Summer coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I received my order for Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps and dies Tuesday, but just found time to work with them Wednesday afternoon. I must say, getting to know your stamps and dies takes some time. I have all kinds of ideas for both and am looking forward to making many cards!
I had no one in mind when making this card. It has a kraft card base and is matted with white cs and a Pool Party top and a designer paper band in the same color. I stamped and die cut the bird, die cut and water colored him. He does have a separate wing, eyes and nose. Added to that is some 3mm and 5 mm sequins from my Etsy shop(the 3mm are not listed yet). I love this bird character. Two years ago my daughter made some Squirrely birds for her doll convention tables. I then made a card with Funky birds, my own hand drawn birds. When I saw Tim Holtz Crazy birds I knew I had to have them!
It's reaching the end of July and just getting hotter here, hope you have a beautiful Thursday and thanks for stopping by for a visit! If you have a July or August birthday, may your birthday be blessed!
