I hope you’ve enjoyed all the bird goodness that Our Daily Bread Designs has offered this month. The birds are gorgeous and the sentiments that accompany them are amazing. I have two cards to share using this months sets. This card from the He Watches Me Set has one of my very favorite quotes :-)
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs – He Watches Me
Paper: Bazzill, K & Co. – TC Blossomwood
Ink: Memento – Rich Cocoa, Blue dye based ink
Accessories: Spellbinders™ Standard Circles SM, Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG, Martha Stewart Daisy Fan Border Punch. Pearls, Ribbon
The next card is made using Our Daily Bread Designs You Will Find Refuge Set, with this charming little Chickadee. I colored the Chickadee with Copic Markers and sponged in the background while still in the Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals SM die. I slipped in a layer cut in the round using Martha Stewart Iron Gate Corner Punch. Quite some time ago I created a tutorial that shows you how to create a circle or circular frame using a corner punch – you can find it HERE; it works marvelously with the newer MS corner punches as well. Underneath that decorative layer I stacked another Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals LG and Spellbinders™ Classic Scalloped Ovals LG. One of my favorite shapes for sentiments (because it is the perfect size) is like a surprise bonus in the Spellbinders™ Polka Dot Frame. This shape comes from the inside of the smallest frame.

Thanks for stopping in to see what I was up to. You’re always welcome, friends!
ETA: Above I referenced a tutorial I created back in 2008 that teaches you how to create a circular frame using a corner punch. I received a question that I wanted to address quickly. The question asked was how to take the wings off of the Martha Stewart Punches and the answer is please don’t remove them. The Martha Stewart punches can be used just as if they were a regular punch, with the wings in, so there is no need to remove anything.
