Two Step Bird Punch and other cards

These were cards from a recent class I held.

This one used the two-step bird punch from the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue:

Two Step Bird punch (Top Note, Inspired by Nature, scrumpled background, Tangerine Tango), Two Step Bird punch (Top Note, Inspired by Nature, scrumpled background, Tangerine Tango)

I have used the “scrumpled” paper technique often before for backgrounds, but the idea for this one came from a site that I can’t remember at the moment – I’ll include a link later if I can find it!

Edited to add: Here was the source of my inspiration for the background.

Card: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, photocopy paper
Stamp Pads: Soft Suede, Cameo Coral, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Three Little Words, En Francais (background)
Other: Big Shot, SU! Top Note die, Extra-Large Two-Step Bird punch, word window punch, dimensionals

This next card also used the two-step bird punch, but this time just the wing, to make the tulip petals and the branch to make the stems. The leaves were cut freehand! I’ve seen quite a few tulip cards using this punch, not sure where I saw it first.

    I love your version Jan! Chocolate and Tangerine go together beautifully, like Jaffas, LOL. This is lovely.
