I made time today to play along with the Twofer Challenge #12 which is "birds."You are to use the same stamp, die, or punch to make 2 completely different cards. I made a Valentine card along with an encouragement card using one of the Tim Holtz Crazy birds.
First up I made a Valentine, using some new stitched tag dies I just got yesterday. I used SU! dsp and real red cardstock, stamping the bird and coloring with Copics, while adding a twine bow. The heart the owl is holding was die-cut with a SNSS die and embellished with 3 little heart stickers. The Tim Holtz sentiment was heat-embossed with white on red and also embellished with 2 little heart stickers. Just for good measure, I covered up the tiny hole on the white tag with yet another heart sticker.
For this card I went simple. I fussy cut the bird after coloring and covering with clear detail embossing powder and placed him hanging upside down on the die-cut MB branch that I embellished with a few snippets of die-cut leaves from my stash. The sky was sponged with tumbled glass distress ink, and the sentiment is by SU!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is kicking off to a good start! We're anticipating the white stuff over the weekend along with some bitter cold temps, but I might actually get some stamping done while I'm hunkered down inside :)
Stay warm or cool - whatever the case may be where you live!
