Class Projects

Birdhouse & Bird Card

I always forget to blog what I've made for my class, so here's what we did in my 3 classes this week, which centred around the 2-step Bird Punch from Stamping Up!

It's such an adorable punch, the bird is so lovely and I was quite sure my ladies would love using this punch - and phew I was right!

The first project we did was the birdhouse, this isn't my design but a fellow SU! Demonstrator very kindly shared the template a while ago on In Love With Stamping, it's quite easy to make, if a bit fiddly and is perfect to put the bird on.

All Stampin' Up! used as follows:

Cardstock - Regal Rose; Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red
DSPs - Sweet Pea (I'm so in love with these papers!)
Stamp - Dot, Dot, Dot (on the wing using Versamark)

The card was then made, we did two versions of this, one using the waste from the bird punch as a template and chalked in the bird, this proved to be a bit of a challenge keeping it neat (I think with hindsight ink may have been better) so we also punched out the bird, which is a much stronger image and looks better in the photo.

SU! used:
Cardstock - Whisper White; Chocolate Chip; Really Rust
Stamp sets - Vintage Vogue; Trendy Trees (for the sentiment)
Eyelet Border punch, Word Window punch & of course the 2-step Bird punch

Other - brads & nesties.

Really enjoyed the class, Jan, it was fun :). It was lovely to make something different and I can't wait to try this out with different cardstock and paper, maybe with flowers and a butterfly instead of a bird... ooh, the possibilities are endless!
