You Got This! By Judi Kauffman for The Queen’s Ink

Today’s tutorial combines Tim Holtz’s Crazy Birds with ‘You Got This’ from RubberMoon, a stamp that is always within reach on my work table.

Simple cards with an upbeat message are one of my favorites to make and send.

As you can see from the photo gallery, I left a narrow halo around the sentiment when I fussy cut around it and the birds have been hand cut, also leaving a narrow halo (I don’t yet have the matching die set). I snipped off the birds’ (stamped) tails so I could replace them with feathers pulled from a yard sale boa!

Solid color cardstock, patterned paper and pieces of washi tape round things out. For all cards, the birds stand on some kind of ‘ground’ – tape, a rectangle, torn paper. 

The cards vary in size and shape, ranging from A2 to 4.5” x 9”. The sample with only one bird is an ATC (2.5” x 3.5” Artist Trading Card), not a full-size card. It uses the same background as the card with three birds, giving you a sense of scale.

Spend a bit more time on your version of the cards –
Color the birds!
Add wiggle eyes.
Get out some stencils and paint and create unique backgrounds to mix and match and layer.
