When I first saw the Swirly Bird stamp set my immediate reaction was of dislike. All I saw were different shapes of pieces that did not seem to fit together to make any sort of coherent card. Whenever this happens to me I challenge myself - challenge myself to make something with these different elements. I first went on Pinterest to see what other demonstrators were making , so I began to experiment.
I was happy with the few cards I put together, and then decided to make the first card making class of the season a "Swirly Bird" class. Talk about challenging yourself!!
After I completed the cards, I had bits and pieces left over, so gathered them together, and in the next 4 minutes I had 4 cards-a Halloween one, 2 Christmas ones, and a masculine birthday.
My intent now is to display these cards to demonstrate to the students how versatile this set with its coordinating framelit/dies is.
Here are the four cards:
Challenge yourself!! See how many different cards you can make using this stamp set , a stamp set that on first viewing I disliked so much, and ended up doing so much with.
