OCC....Hey There Chickadee!
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card made with the Our Creative Corner Challenge, Hey Chickadee!
I took a very literal interpretation on the challenge. They had a beautiful winter picture of a chickadee. Here it is:
I have seen this bird made with the Stampin' Up two step bird punch and I knew I wanted to give it a try. I just googled for a chickadee image and made mine. I first punched the bird with whisper white and then with basic black and then with basic gray. I used a pencil and drew out the pieces for the bird. I cut away what I didn't need and glued it together. I punched out a basic gray wing and added it to the bird with a dimensional. I punched out the leaf stem with some chocolate chip card stock and cut down the leaves and used my 1/4 inch circle punch, (retired) and punched out some circles with cherry cobbler card stock. I added them to the stem with a bit of glue and then added some crystal effects over the "berries" to give them a bit of shine. The sentiment comes from the retired Really Retro stamp set and is stamped with black stazon. I punched out with the word window punch and then feed back into the punch to trim the ends. I punched out another word window with cherry cobbler and matted the sentiment. I wrapped one end around the edge of the panel and added some mini black brads. I pierced three corners with my piercing tool and mat pack.
The base of the card is whisper white and I followed that with some basic gray that was embossed with my Swiss dot EF. I added some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon and made a bow.
I am also using this card for this weeks CAS challenge on splitcoast, A Day in the Snow, chickadees are snow birds!!!
Well, that is all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
