Bird Builder Punch #117191 ~ African Gray Pin

 

African Gray Parrot Pin

As many of you know I am owned by an African Gray Parrot, Molly. She is our kid and believe me, she is with one of us constantly. A lot of people don't see what I see in her. They think that I am crazy ~ it is only a bird. Well she is my feather baby and tomorrow I will be with a lot of other people that feel the same way as I do. I will be attending the East Coast Avian Association Annual Summer Gala at the Bedford Legion in Bedford NS, between 10 am and 4 pm.
 
I made this Lapel Pin of an African Grey Parrot totally from Stamping Products and I will be wearing it tomorrow. I sound like such a Bird Geek. This is a way for me to merge the two loves ~ Molly and Paper Crafting. Besides, most times that I am stamping she is on my shoulder anyways.

Also, I wanted to show you how to use your Bird Builder Punch #117191 in a different way. Just think you could change the colors of the bird and make any bird you want to. Hmmmm! a Real Red Cardinal for Christmas!!!!

This project is a great way to use up your scraps of Card Stock that I keep telling you to save.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Punch a scrap piece of Basic Gray Card Stock using the Bird Builder Punch to make the Bird's Body. You will not need the Branch. Repeat this process and set the extra Body aside. You wil not need the Wing or the Branch for this one.
2) Using your Paper Snips cut off the Bird's Beak and a portion of the Tail as shown.
3) Ink up the Sponge Dauber using the Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the edges of the Bird Body and the Wing.
4) Punch a scrap piece of Real Red Card Stock using the Bird Builder Punch. You will not need the Branch. You will repeat this process 2 more times. You don't need all of the Real Red Bird's Body, so cut them off, but make sure that you leave a little tab on each Tail, so you can layer and glue the 3 parts together. Adhere them together using SNAIL Adhesive.
5) Punch a piece of Basic Black Card Stock using the Word Window Punch. Using the Paper Snips, fashion a Beak out of one end. You will not need the entire piece, but make sure that you leave a little tab to adhere the Beak to the Body. Adhere the Head using SNAIL Adhesive.
6) With the Beak in place draw the White part using the uni-ball Signo Gel Pen. Set aside to dry.
7) Punch a piece of Old Olive Card Stock using the Bird Builder Punch. You will not need the Bird. Repeat this process to make
another Branch.

10) Adhere the Wing on the Body using a Stampin' Dimensional.
11) Adhere the Tails to the Body using SNAIL Adhesive.
12) Adhere the 2 Branches by putting SNAIL Adhesive on the back of the body and adhere them to it.
13) Adhere the second Basic Gray Body to the other layers using SNAIL Adhesive.Try the second body first, because it may have to be trimmed so you can't see it from the front. Once it looks good adhere it using SNAIL Adhesive.
14) Adhere a strip of Stampin' Dimensionals to the Pin Back and adhere it to the assembled African Gray Bird.

Lest We Forget

 

IMG_6047

 

I would like to personally thank the men and women that serve in the Canadian Armed Forces.

My thought and prayers go out to the people serving in Afghanistan and in peace keeping missions around the world.

I can not forget the sacrifices of their families that keep things running smoothly at home, so our soldiers can focus on the task at hand.

I would like to send a special hello and thank you to my brother Sergeant Dale M. Eisnor. He has served this great country for over 30 years and has been deployed all over the world, including Afghanistan. Dale, we are all so proud of you.

This time of year we Canadians proudly wear Poppies as a sign of our support for our troops (past and present). The above photo is my rendition of the Poppy made out of Real Red Card Stock #102482, Basic Black Card Stock #121045, Full Heart Extra Large Punch #119883 and the 3/4" Circle Medium Punch. Everything is held together with SNAIL Adhesive #104332.

CIBC Run for the Cure

 

Nancy 2010 Run for the Cure Cropped

Every year I participate in the Halifax, Nova Scotia CIBC Run for the Cure.

This was my 10th Year!

As you can tell it was a beautiful warm day. Myself, my friend Maureen and about 8500 others  participated in this worthwhile cause.

Rubber Stamping isn't just for Card Making or Scrapbooking. There is a lot of things that you can stamp on ~ Wood, Glass, Silk Scarves, etc.

 Yes, you can stamp on Silk Scarves. If you look closely at my scarf you will see the Breast Cancer's Pink Ribbon symbol. I hand stamped this scarf with the Ribbon of Hope #115552, found on page 20 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue. I used the Rose Red Craft Stampin' Ink Refill #102915 and the Uninked Craft Stampin' Pad #122265.

If you would like to learn more about this technique, stayed tune as I will be holding a class about stamping on Silk Scarves.
