Happy BIRD-Day!

Happy Tuesday, friends!  
I have an interactive card up today at 
using the Flirty Flamingos Stamp Set and the new 
Spiral Circle Pull Card die by Karen Burniston!

I stamped the flamingo onto the pink patterned paper by Echo Park 
and then cut the body of the bird out.

I restamped the image, cut out the wing and attached with foam adhesive.  
I shaded around the bird with a dark pink pencil.  
The floatie was stamped and cut from yellow paper and colored in with
watercolor pencils.

The die set also comes with small hearts, which I cut from different
colors and attached to various parts of the spiral.

The sentiment from the stamp set was stamped and cut into a banner shape.
I was sure to attach it so that the tail end of the banner showed when the card was closed.

Visit Newton's Nook Designs for shopping and to see other ideas!


  1. I have to say that this card is SHEER GENIUS!! From all the coordinating pattern paper choices to the button details to the little hearts!! WOW all I can say is that you totally rocked this and that flamingo is so cute - you did good girl!! Hey I also wanted to tell you that your measuring tape cards over at the May Arts ribbon blog were awesome - so impressed and thought the ways you used that ribbon on the cards was so super cool and impressive!! You just rock!!

  2. This is super cute! I just love the big surprise you get when you open it up!!

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)

 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
