Angry Birds

After seeing so many Angry Bird items this year, I came across a cute card made mostly from punches.  My friend Amanda got me hooked on punch art so I am always looking for fun things to make out of our Stampin' Up punches.  Although my bird doesn't quit fit my usual size envelope because of his feathers, I still added them in for dimension.  Didn't he turn out cute?  I can't wait to send one to my great nephew Nate who is an Angry Bird fan.
The following punches were used.  The word window punch for the feathers.  The petite pennants punch for his beak. The 1 1/4 and 1 inch circle punches for his eyes along with the owl builder punch for the smallest part of his eyes.  As you increase the number of punches you have, you will be amazed at the number of things you can make from them.  The eyebrows were made with a 1 inch square punch.  You can use a 3 inch circle punch or our 3 inch circle die to cut out the lower section 
of the card.

I am back with a cute Thanksgiving card for the upcoming holidays.  This card is made with the Stampin' Up Oval Framelits and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  I also used the Polka dot embossing folder to add some dimension to the 'pumpkin'.  You can use any sentiment you want on the front depending on what you are using it for.  This fun card is an eye catcher and everyone you send it to will enjoy it.  To shop for the Framelits or Bigz Die, click on the shop now button to the right.
