Crazy Birds Birthday

Over a year ago, my friend Christine at I Am Cocoa's Mom posted a Hallowe'en cascade card using these adorable stamps.  I resisted the urge to buy them until last week, when I couldn't stand it any longer!

The Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps and dies were perfect for a birthday card for a friend.  The accessory "Crazy Things" and "Crazy Talk" stamps were great fun for completing the card.  The dies that go with the stamps are extremely detailed and wonderful for giving cards a 3D look.
The eyes and balloons were cut separately and covered with Liquid Glass (Z679).  The separate wing, lifted up with 3D Foam Tape (Z1151), holds the balloon strings, cut with the intricate dies included in the accessory pack for Crazy Things.
The sentiment inside is stamped in Barn Red (Z2104) using the "Crazy Talk" verbage.  There is a saying for every holiday in this terrific collection!
Copic pens are such fun to use on these projects - I can't tell you what colors I used, there are so many on all the different little pieces of this card.  The edges of the front papers were all distressed to complement the wood texture of the background paper.
Other Close To My Heart products used in this project include:

Rustic Home Fundamentals Paper (Z3262)
Chocolate (X5643), Slate (X5930) and Colonial White (1388) Cardstock
Sanding Kit (Z1294)
Black Ink (Z2105)
Ponderosa Pine Ink (retired)
Neutral Baker's Twine (retired)

Thanks for following along on this project.  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know you stopped by to visit!

Yeah, Adrienne! Thank you for the 'shout-out' and I am so glad you splurged on the stamps and dies; you will use them over and over again. I absolutely love your card! The colors you chose for the birdie are perfect against the wood grain background and I love that you grounded him on a pine branch. The Rustic Home Fundamentals Paper is now on my CTMH wishlist.
