Bird Crazy - Here come the girls!

Before I share my work, I am a little sad today, this is my last Design Team post for Inspiration Emporium, as my 12 month term with them is up.  It has been a great experience for me and I have worked alongside some wonderful designers and great team-mates who I will miss very much.  Thanks so much to the whole team and to Joy Arevalo Kennedy and her family for their kindness and generosity over the last year!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on the Bird Crazy boys - now it is time for the girls!
Using Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy set of stamps and also the Accessories set,  I have created three 'girls' this time, again on ATCs.   They are all decked out, perhaps ready to go to Ladies Day at Ascot (horse racing in the UK), where the requirement is to wear a hat....


Meet Rose, Daisy and Fleur! 

Rose is the outgoing one in the group, she loves bright colours and went for a very sparkly Peacock Feather coloured shoulder bag and a rose on her hat (of course).  The shoulder bag is made from one of the balloons on the Accessories stamp set and has been covered with Peacock Feathers Distress Glitter.  A girl can never have too much glitter after all!
Daisy prefers a sparkly clutch bag and a more demure hat, adorned with daisies.  The clutch was made from one of the balloons cut down and glittered with Seedless Preserves Distress Glitter.
Fleur looks like the shy and quiet one but she has lots of attitude.  She chose a lovely bright gold handbag/purse and a matching hat with lots of daisies.  Her handbag is again made from the balloon stamp in the Accessories set of stamps and Mustard Seed Distress Glitter.  All the sentiments are from Tim's small talk stickers. 

The Accessories stamp set is such a fun addition to the Bird Crazy stamps and I can see me getting lots of use from them.  I don't have the Accessories die set yet but I am sure it will make things a lot easier for those who do not like cutting out small images.  I think the birds are such characters and I can just imagine making cards for friends who somehow resemble some of the birds.....I hope the 'girls' have made you smile!

Many of the items I used are available from Inspiration Emporium, I have added a list below.  If you do buy from IE, you can use my code Redanne for a 10% discount on your whole order.  Postage is very reasonable at $5 within the USA and $10 for international orders.

As always, thanks for looking!  I am taking a little blog break for about a month to deal with some things.  Apart from a couple of essential DT posts I may be very quiet and won't be around to comment very much.  I will do my best to catch up with you all after the break.  I am very grateful for my followers and hope you will understand!  

Big hugs,  Anne xxx

  5. Another delightful trio of characters! I must say, I'm not sure their headgear is quite extravagant (ridiculous!) enough to really make the grade at Ascot - but they're fabulous all the same. Very sad to hear this is your farewell for Inspiration Emporium. I know they'll miss your amazing creations.

I'm getting back slowly into the land of blog, so do forgive me if I still miss some, but not for long... hopefully back up in full swing-ish soon! :) Wow I just love these ATCs. They are just so cool, and can't wait to show my son these in the morning, I got the Crazy Birds recently, for him and me so we can play and be arty together. He was so excited! I know he'll get 'naggy' when he sees this :) Completely awesome! x
