R2C Day2: 12 Designers of Christmas – Snowbird Chickadees

I’m Sandy Allnock – otherwise known as “honored to be one of Honey Bee Stamps’ 12 designers of Christmas” this year! Be sure to watch the blog and follow along with all the others too!

12 Designers of Christmas – Snowbird Chickadees

When I saw the little Snow Bird set (ok it’s a big set, but with cute little birds!), I knew exactly what I wanted to do – make them chickadees! I made a few cards, and videotaped one of them; all three use the same colors though.

Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Construction for the ornament card below: Diecut the pieces, and stamp image on the round circle. Pop it on dimensional adhesive on ornament card base created by hanging the edge of the die off of the fold when diecutting. Add ornament top with dimensional adhesive.

Construction for the ornament card below: Stamp image on card base; add snow curve cut with Hill Borders. Cut background shape from acetate and attach to back of frame using Be Creative Tape; put thin strip of dimensional adhesive around the frame to build up space to create shaker. Add Ice Chips Glitter.

Construction tips for globe below: Stamp image on main shape, add Hill Border snow shape. Cut background shape from acetate and attach to back of frame using Be Creative Tape; put thin strip of dimensional adhesive around the frame to build up space to create shaker. Add Diamonds. Attach base of snow globe.

Hope you’ll try out cards with chickadees – or snow globes and ornaments! And I truly hope you’ve made great progress on your Christmas cards….get busy addressing them soon!

Today’s charity

I’m making donations each of these 12 days of Christmas, just to keep that “shopping rush” from making me feel all gross inside…giving keeps my heart soft and my mind thinking of others! Since today’s card has birds on it…I’m giving to the Audubon Society. I used to do fundraising events with them many years ago when I was in San Francisco; I belonged to a sailing group who taught people to sail, but also did these fundraisers; we’d let the local Audubon Society collect donations from their members, and we’d take them out on the San Francisco Bay to do birdwatching on the water! We’d “raft up” for nice potluck lunches with other boats in the event, and it was a great way to meet some wonderful people who care about our feathered friends.
