Stamping with the Christmas Birds

Hi, guys!

Back again with a few more cards to share with you!

Today’s cards feature the Christmas Birds stamp set. Technique Tuesday is releasing some Christmas stamps and dies over the next few months, starting with this set I designed and some other products.

I wanted to take a little time today to share a few projects I made with the set.

This first card features the stamp set in its simplest form. I stamped the bird and presents on cardstock and then fussy cut them with my scissors. Then I stamped them again on my card, adding the fussy cut portions of them to it. One of the cool things about this design is it would work with either of the birds in the stamp set. Tweet-Holiday-Bird-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The stamp set has matching paper crafting dies available too! And so I used the dies to make this card. Not everyone is a master fussy cutter. That’s why I love matching dies. Cut a die, stamp on it and you are good to go. (Or stamp on a piece of cardstock, line the image up with the die, die-cut and you are good to go!)

Rather than turning the bird blue for this card, I wanted to do something out of my comfort zone. What’s that you ask? Yep. It’s simple. I used gray inks instead. I think it’s a fun look for him!

For this last card, I used the same bird three times. I was going for more of a scene. I could have masked the scene, but instead I stamped the bird three times on cardstock and fussy cut him (…or is it a her? You decide.). Then I stamped the bird three times on my card and adhered the large fussy cut portion of the bird to each impression.

To make the birds look like they are singing, I stamped a few musical notes and added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. Oh yeah, and I added a few sequins too.

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for stopping by.
