Punch Cardinal

Birds and birdhouses are some of my favorite things so I have been playing with the chickadee from my last post and trying to come up with other birds. Today I got the cardinal to where I was satisfied with it. There is a bluejay in the making, watch for it in the next few days.

After I had my cardinal put together I made this card for him using the retired set, Peaceful Wishes. I cut the pinecones out and used a dimensional on the front one. I also used my :Dazzling Crystal on the cones.

Punch Creation

Today I made this chickadee using a pattern I found on Splitcoast yesterday. Here is the link to her website. The card opens on the scalloped edge. I used crystal effects and DDglitter on the snowflakes. It never shows up in a scan like it does in real life. He needs something to sit on, but I'm not sure how to accomplish that. Any ideas?

This morning we had a beautiful sunrise that inspired this card. The trees glitter and glisten. I made Dazzling Crystal, with a 1/2 bottle of crystal effect and 3/4 container of DD glitter. Just remember to shake the bottle well before use as the glitter settles to the bottom. I have been using this on almost everything I've made lately. Appling glitter this way eliminated having glitter everywhere.

Top Note Tags

I'm finally back. After a number of trips with my computer to the repair shop and
still having the same problem I finally bought a new computer. Hopefully I will be able to post on a regular bases now.
For my next stamp club I plan for my gals to make some of these tags with the Topnote die and different punches. These ideas are not original with me. I want them to experience some more of the Bigshot.
