I’ve got my silly head on today!

Birdbrain features in this month’s image for the free stamp of the month challenge over at From the Heart Stamps. For some reason this image just tickled my sense of humour!

Materials used:SAM_2407(watermarked)
From the Heart – Deck the Halls Birdbrain
white stamping card
patterned paper and card from stash
A5 white card blank
Copic pens
square dies

Print out the image and sentiment to the size you require.

Colour image with Copics then die cut the image and trim the sentiment to size and edge with a black pen.

Die cut a mat slightly larger for the image and cut a mat for the sentiment out of patterned paper and again edge with a black pen before attaching image and sentiment.

Attach both toppers to the front of the card.

SAM_2412(watermarked)For the ATC print and colour images as for the card. (I cropped out the bauble and resized it to make the inchie.) Cut images to size and edge with a black pen.

Cut and ATC blank from patterned card and attach toppers to it.

Hopefully you are not groaning at the terrible humour! Thanks for stopping for a while. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    This is one cute image! Love the change-up you did with this design, just by using the different papers too. Adding the tiny ornament on #2 was a nice design touch! Both cards are adorable. TFS & Hugs
