Smooshing Crazy Birds!

A quick share as it’s Summer here this Spring and I’ve just home from work and then the beach and have so much ‘crafty’ homework this month that I can’t wait to share with you…  won’t be long, promise!   And obviously as you can see I had heaps of fun playing with these Crazy Birds and was so happy to have them published with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.  Beware… photo heavy post.

  1. These are just incredible Therese! Absolutely stunning! Love that set and more than that, love what you have created with it:)

  2. These little guys crack me up and you have done an amazing job with them. Love your smooshing. Can’t wait to see all your crafty homework. Keep cool my dear. xx

  3. Stunning cards, each and every one. I wish you would stop buying the same stamps as me. I have mine ready to go for Kathy’s 30 day colouring challenge. But not the die cuts, did you get the die cuts. Super love your backgrounds, they work so well with the birds. Cant wait to see the video.

  4. Oh, thank you for doing this project! I have been wanting to use the ink smooshing technique with these stamps, but just haven’t gotten around to it. I look forward to your video.

  5. So great to have these birds in my inbox this morning, Therese … just fantastic coloring, and design – LOve the one whose tail extends off the card!

  6. Glad you had fun with those funny little birds. I just looked at my cards and thought that I’m getting more and more simple in my style every day.. (loving it by the way). I’m so glad that we are partner’s in that crime together.. The first one is my favourite (of course), although all of them would be fun to receive! 🙂

  7. Firstly, CONGRATS on another publication, Therese! Well deserved, too! I really love how you colored your Crazy Birds, and your backgrounds are the perfect way to showcase them! I think I’ve put off buying this set long enough…they’re just so fun 🙂
    By the way…you can share a photo heavy post anytime, for me…I love every, single thing you create!!! Enjoy your warm weather!

  8. Thank you, thank you, I have this stamp set and love it….you’ve given many ideas … color away.

  9. Ha – these are extraordinary done – LOVE them all. Hope you do a video of how to achieve the lovely backgrounds. Congratulations on ANOTHER publication Therese – you are amazing 🙂

  10. You’ve coloured them all so beautifully! I love all the water colouring and that you used such bright colours to bring them to life. You’ve made these crazy birds look gorgeous!!

  11. Love these birds! I just picked up the stamp and die set 2 weeks ago. Haven’t had time to play with them yet but seeing your post makes my hands itchy..LOL! Love your work!

  12. A veritable aviary full of fabulous crazy birds, Therese … love the colouring, love how you’ve set them against those awesome backgrounds! Gorgeous, gorgeous! Hugs, Anita 🙂
