More Bird Crazy Cards

Does anyone else make cards but then not send them?  I've been a little bit obsessed with making cards with the Bird Crazy stamps - but I am bad about sending them!  Another item to hoard?  Hopefully not!

I have been using up tons of tags that I made when I was practicing a new technique.  I didn't want to throw them out, but I wasn't sure how to use them on a card or project.  May Flaum (www.craftwithmay.com) to the rescue (again).  I took the "Camp Scrap" classes this summer, but didn't get through all of the lessons until now (she provides a lot of content!).  Some of the lessons in the technique section focused on getting those tags used.  So I am feeling good about getting them onto cards.




Having all of the painted tags on hand and ready to go, makes the card background come together really fast.  I tore 6x6 paper pads for the middle layer and picked a coordinating paper for the background (then adhered to a pre-made white card from Michael's).  The birds take a little more time, but are so much fun to make it seems easy.  The birds all have 3 dimensional pieces (wings, eyes, beak, accessories) which really make a huge difference with the final product - hard to see from the pictures I took.  

Hope you can have some fun making something today!
