Bird Crazy Birthday

Hi there! I'm back today to share a birthday card I made for my nephew.


This card was totally inspire by Jennifer McGuire's clear shaker card. You can find her tutorial HERE.

I have had these Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps sitting on my desk for months and knew they would be perfect for this card for my nephew plus I had just got t the WRM Fuse Tool and I wanted to try it out.


I colored my bird with Copic markers and filled my clear pouch with various sequins. I mixed several from different companies and then added a gift card before sealing it all up!

Perfect for a 15 year old boy!

I cannot wait to try this again and I just ordered the thinlit dies to go with these birds so I think I will be working with these birds again!

Hope you all have a good day!

My Sunshine



Hi there! I'm stopping by real quick to share this Cutie KaToodles Sunshiny Bear card. This file is from KaDoodle Bug Designs to create a shaped card. 

These files are so cute!! 

I added some Yellow Stickles to the sun on her belly and some Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose. Before adding the Glossy Accents to the eyes I added some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella pen. Love the look!!

My sentiment is stamped from Craftin Desert Divas Beach Bound stamps. I love the font on the sentiment and it fit perfectly on my cloud.

Hope you enjoy my card!
