Crazy for Crazy Birds!


Hey there Friends!  So sorry it has been so long.  Life has been a bit crazy!

Speaking of crazy... I just LOVE those Crazy Birds from Tim Holtz!!  They are just too darned cute for words.  I played around with them for my Christmas cards in December, and just made one for a dear friend for her birthday.

Hope you enjoy and find some inspiration!

I started with a 6x6 square card and cut the right edge with the new Heartfelt Creations Regal Borders and Pockets Die.  I used it to cut each layer of the matting as well.
Those Crazy Birds and hats are coloured with Gelatos.  I used a Distress Marker for the Pomegranate Martini and topped each glass with Liquid Glass.  The glassed and sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set: Girls Night Out.

added another fun bird on the inside as well.  I actually ended up adding a few more balloons to the inside, but forgot to take the photo before I gave it away... OOOPS!

A few fun techniques with this one...
The top border was cut with the Snow Flurries On the Edge die by Tim Holtz.  I cut it out on white paper and used Silver Inka Gold for the metallic finish.  I added some Liquid Glass to the snowflakes and sprinkled chunky glass glitter over the top for dimension and sparkle.  I believe the sentiment was from Stampin'Up!
The background was embossed using a Darice folder.  I went over the top of a few of the flakes with my Sukara GellyRoll pen Stardust.
The bird is colored with Gelatos, Distress marker and Puffy Velvet pen for the fluff.

As always, I love reading your comments and feedback!
Until next time.... Happy Scrapping!
