Recently, one of my regular stampers requested projects for kids. I looked at what I had on my shelf and found stamps suitable for feminine or baby cards, but not really for KIDS.
Off to Pinterest, the Black Hole of the Internet!
I found some great ideas and they weren’t even in mason jars!! Score.
This was inspired by THIS great card, and I CASED it pretty liberally. The Red Bird is punched from the 1 3/4″ circle, and the Yellow Bird is the old style Heart Punch. I think you could get that shape using a square and a corner rounder.
The white body portions are 1 3/4″ circles punched twice. The orange beak is the Itty Bitty Heart (trimmed) and the head and tail feathers are from the retired Boho punch. I think you could get the same look from the Flower Fair framelits.
The eyebrows are the end of the stem from the bird punch. The birds aren’t angry until you add those eyebrows, so work them!! The eyes are from the Owl punch, and I used the 1″ square for the yellow beak.
The Word Window and the Woodgrain TIEF make up the slingshot, and the linen thread finishes it off. I trimmed a strip of Garden Green with Fringe Scissors, and the embellishment at the top is from Amazing Birthday. We had to stamp SOMETHING!
These are last year’s bags – the current bags are plain, so you could even add some clouds as Sarah-Jane Rae did to her card.
Everyone loved the end result – but we agreed that these birds take a lot of little pieces!
