Bird Crazy – crazy birds

After a bit of a hard time the past 3 weeks I treated myself with the lovely stamp set from Stampers Anonymous by Tim Holtz. I was extremely happy, that I got them at all in Germany, where we get all new things 1 year later usually.
So just before the weekend I got my little package and started directly stamping and painting. I also got back my good mood directly. I am not much of a stamper, but these little character birds are just too cute and funny and it was so relaxing to sit in the sun messing around with color.

Tracing and cutting with my Cameo worked very well with PixScan. Then today I made some cards for next weeks birthdays, a mix of Cameo-cut words, parts of my own collage sheets and die cut elements out of my Bigshot. Now my workshop is a mess! So I start the new week with tidying up…

Have fun!

It smells like fish…fishy underwater notecards

They just fit into the vacation and beach time: colorful underwater themed aquarium fishes.

I made these printable collage sheets and found my test prints on A3 coming out too big for embellishments. And I messed up the print and cut marks for the Silhouette Cameo to cut them with the machine.

But the fishes looked so cool, so I decided to cut them by hand with a little border and making note cards from it. I am not the worlds best stamper, but tried some things and it worked. I fixed leather and silk bands and ended up with a couple of pretty usable gift tags.

You can get the collage sheets here

Have fun!

snow flake stamps – book marks give-aways

For next week I need a number of little inexpensive give-aways. Ok, everybody is reading a book once in a while so I made book marks trying out the new Silhouette stamp material I just got.
I cut little snow flakes and christmas tree stamps.
Then I cut 4 different book mark shapes from black heavy card stock.
With a white pigment ink pad you can make beautiful stamps white on black.
I used some of my snow flakes die cuts and colorful protection rings to decorate the top.
Then I added a ribbon each with a knot in front and one in the back and done!

Have a great Sunday!
