Crazy Birds....My Newest Obsession!

Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy dies are all the rage now.  I loved them from the first time I saw them.  So I conjured up a big batch of them for birthday cards, congratulations cards, and just for fun cards.  Then I was excited that the dies for the accessories were being shipped.  Well, I accidentally re-ordered the dies for the birds, and when they came, I was so disappointed.  So I grabbed some of the props from my Elizabeth Craft Designs' Critters designed by Karen Burniston, and dressed up these two Crazy Birds with the snorkeling gear.  With a little trimming and adjustments, they worked fine!  I used clear packaging to cut the mask's clear area, and in person, it looks really cool.

I love how the wings can be cut separately. I used this plus to make the little short bird look like he is holding all the gear underneath his wing.  

I am off to make some more fun cards with these fun little stamps and matching dies now that the accessories dies are in my possession!  Watch this blog for more in the future.
