Crazy Things, for Bird Crazy!

Hello friends!  I'm so happy you've stopped by today!  I'm really excited about the NEW Sizzix thin die set for Tim Holtz "Crazy Things" Stamp set!  The collaboration with Tim Holtz, Sizzix and Stampers Anonymous is a HOMERUN in my book!  I've made several cards using the NEW Crazy Things die set and I had so much fun!
The new dies cut out all of the images from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous "Crazy Things" stamp set!
 The details of the balloon strings are incredible!
 I love that the hearts can be used as a trio or you can break them up and use as singles.  He looks so handsome in his glasses and bow tie...

Looks like that broom stick is flying away with all the Halloween candy! {wink}
It's very easy to match up the stamped images with the coordinating dies.
Most of the backgrounds have been achieved with second generation stamping and water droplets.
You could easily make the glasses into sunglasses with a little bit of a metallic.

All of the birds and accessories have been colored with Distress Inks, a Waterbrush and blending tool.

The precision and intricacy of the dies just amaze me!


Look at how teeny tiny that pencil is!
 The combinations are endless, I can't wait to play more with all of these stamp & die combinations.
I hope you have been over to Richele's blog!  She has made so many great Bird Crazy cards with the great new Crazy Things dies too, go take a peek!!!   I have listed links for all the products that I used in making my Bird Crazy cards below.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day! xx

    I saw the list of supplies you used - but i don't see anything for cutting out the word blob (like POP). is there a set for the thoughts stamps? do you know what it's called?

    1. Hi Sandy, thanks for stopping by! I hand cut the word blob "pop". The Crazy Thoughts stamps do not have coordinating dies to cut them out, hope that helps. Bobbi
