Happy Bird-Day

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful last week of October!! Anyone have any fun Halloween parties to attend this weekend? If so, are you dressing up?


I have been in love the with Tim Holtz Crazy Birds since they first came out. I don't know why it took me so long to purchase them. I used the Crazy Birds stamps and dies and the Crazy Things stamps and dies for these cards. I kept the cards pretty CAS for my first attempt at using them. I hope you don't get tired of them because I'm going to use them a lot :) For the backgrounds, I used the TH Splatter Stencil, which was one of the things I won from the TH September 2015 Tags challenge.


For this bird, I used Distress Markers in Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw and Squeezed Lemonade, along with a TH Water Brush. The background was created with the same colors of Distress Ink, plus a touch of Walnut on the edges. Happy is a My Creative Time die and the banner is a Lil' Inker Stitched Banner die. The sentiment is from an old K Andrew Designs stamp set.


This birdie was colored with Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great week :)

Like the TH Bird creations. I just recently bought the TH Bird stamps, dies as well as the accessories stamps & dies and have yet to use them. I bought them the same time as I bought the 3 Halloween dies: Zombie, Vampire & Monster and have used all 3 of those.

My sweetest friends, your cards are so adorable and perfectly colorful! You colored these stamps so beautifully... the blends are truly seamless and impressive. I love the hues you chose and the splatter background is perfect for the designs. The abundance of color for the background is a marvelous way to do CAS without feeling so CAS. :o) Fabulous work as always, my dearest Lisa! Have a twinkly night. :o)

I haven't been by in so long but I had to tell you these are incredible! Beautiful blending!

Kathy Krug said...

Well, If you would have put these cards in a group of other cards and asked me to choose your design, the only way I might have picked these out is that there were two different cards using the same materials, but with different results. Love these cards. You are so talented, and I love that you are never caught in a box...your always outside.

These are great cards. I am in love with the designs. Thanks for these inspirations of such cute cards. I have to host a bird themed party for my daughter’s 6th birthday and these ideas will be amazing for it. I have booked one of party venues in Chicago and looking to do other arrangements.
