Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch

Welcome to my latest card and I trust the photos above tell the story. My eldest daughter, Dana is wearing her most favourite t shirt, which is the colour inspiration for my latest card using the brand new extra large bird punch in the Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue. Dana is also standing next to my scrap drawers, which I purchased from K Mart. these drawers have proven to be one of the best storage items I have bought as they ensure no scraps go to waste. I can also let my children use whatever they like from these drawers without having to ask. I might share some of their creations with you over the Easter Holidays. I had a lot of fun making this card as it was a fun, colourful & whimsical card, using white embossing (friends 24/7) & Polka Dots Embossing Folder. FYI the word on the birds wing were stamped using the new 'Tiny Tags' Stamp Set.

Below is another whimsical creation - just having fun punching out my scraps - stamped images that didn't go to plan, a magazine page, and a bit of bright green for impact. Add a couple of buttons and I'm pretty happy with this cute card.

The card below is 'cased' directly from the NEW mini catalog and I had fun making this too. The Polka Dot Embossing Folder is used to texturize (is that a word? - well it is now!) half the card and the bird looks fab on the top note die.

Below is a card from Leonie's Blog made by Leonie's sister Jackie - how clever is she to make the bird punch wok as a Christmas Card. You can check out the full description by looking up Leonie's post at

The next two cards are made by a US Demonstrator Ann Fitzgerald. Now she is one clever lady, figuring out that you can modify the bird pieces into a heliconia and a chick. Ann's full posts can be found on the following link

Extra Large Bird Punch for a Wedding Card

Here is another card I made with the NEW extra large bird punch. Thank you to Ellie for the inspiration at our latest demonstrator get together, where she punched the bird from stamped images - I loved that idea! The NEW 'Heard from the Heart' Stamp Set is one of those perfect word stamps that has beautiful script and just seems to fit effortlessly onto lots of card designs. I have also purchased this stamp set as a clear mount, and so lining the words up on the white rectangle was a breeze! Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White make a really classy analogous colour theme. I also sponged the edges of the Whisper White bird, so as to make it pop. I can see myself using this bird punch a lot - I love it!
