For the Birds - The Stampin Up Bird Punch

I didn't show off my bird punch last week.  I am obsessed with Castle and Bones - they are shows.  I can watch Castle over and over and over and it comes on in the afternoon on TNT.  If I sit down and do not MAKE myself get up and go to my craft room - I will sit there and watch as many episodes as they will air.  It is very sad, but very true.  I have also developed this obsessive compulsive habit of watching Bones on Netflix.  I am on season 2.  I just cannot tear myself away.  So I let my 'design team' carry me last week. 

This weekend I forced myself out of my chair and down to my craft room.  I am so glad I did.  I used my Stampin Up bird punch for the first time.  Here are the results:
I used Archival Ink by Ranger for the stamping.  And I used the stamp set 'Birds and Bees' from Cardztv for the sentiments. I just love Mary's sentiments.  I inked around the edges of the birds with Colorbox Chalk ink in chestnut.

I have several birds cut out and ready to go.  You'll be seeing more of them -  I assure you.

Thank you for stopping by.  Stay tuned for my next 'Under the Sea' card tomorrow.  Have a great day and be inspired.

  1. They call that "binge watching" where you just sit and watch one episode of another of one show. I'm trying to watch less TV overall so I can craft more. It makes hubby crazy as he saves shows for me on his DVR and they get older and older and older. I'd rather craft and several shows I don't mind if I see them or not but he's a purist. Must see every episode.

    Anyway, LOVE the punched birds cards. I have this punch and was wondering if I should keep it or not as it has been a long time since I've used it. Now you show me that the answer is YES I should keep it. And I should make some darling cards like these. I especially like the purple birds.
