Tomorrow I have my Extra Large Bird Punch class and this is one of the cards they are going to make. I have seen people making different kind of birds with the punch, and I loved the look of the chickadees. I don't use my grass image from Inspired by Nature enough and this card was perfect.
I also have been saving my Stampin' Up! boxes, and any other cardboard boxes I can get my hands on. I bought something the other day and the box had really tiny bumpy cardboard things inside so I am excited to see how it tears. Don't take much to get me excited does it?
Stamp Set: Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Going Gray, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Paper: White confetti, Old Olive, Sweet Pea DSP, Going Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White
Misc: Cardboard, Top Note Die, Old Olive grosgrain, My Way punch, Extra Large Bird Punch, Cardboard, White gel pen
I hope they like it.
Have a super Saturday and thanks for stopping in!
The chickadees are gorgeous…now did you go to the National Geographic site to get the right colour combination for the birds..or do you have some flying around your back yard that perched on your window sill long enough for you to get the colours ironed out!!
Either way – it's great.

Beautiful card! I love the colors and the way the edges look on the cardboard. Your work is so unique. Love it!
Kim Burmeister says
Wow, this looks great Di! I bet your class is awesome. Have fun.
Cute! I love how the cardboard tears. Starbuckes coffee cup sleeves also work great in the Big Shot!

Love these chickadees and love the use of the cardboard. My hubby laughs at me for the things I save to craft with. Hey, his trash, my treasure! Hey, recycle those boxes.
You know, I adore chickadees!!! This is stunning! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent~
Very creative and totally cute!!

oh, I don't think they will like it…I think they will LOVE it, they are adorable! And what a clever idea to customize the bird to be a chickadee. Cute, cute, cute! Jan Hoyt
