Tulip Bird Builder Punch Card

 People are always stumped for inspiration to make a Card.I used this bouquet of Tulips to inspire this beautiful Tulip Card. I wanted to make a very special "Thinking of You" Card and I think that I was able to do so.

You can create beautiful Punch Art using Punches. They are so versatile and worth every penny. I used the Wing found in the Bird Builder Punch #117191 to create the Tulips, the Branch to create the Leaves and the Ornament Punch #119847 to create the Flower Vase. Read on for the full instructions to re-create this beautiful Tulip Card.

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.

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.
