Fly Birdie, fly! …the Petal Cone Die ‘soars’ to new heights with endless possibilities!

I know, I know you can't believe that I'm back twice in 24 hrs (I couldn't resist coming back after the fun Lennon and I shared this afternoon)!  Are you also amazed that this cute little 'beak' is made with none other than the Petal Cone Die!  Seriously, this die amazes me!  The possibilities seem to be endless! With birthday parties on the brain, I can just imagine all kinds of pretty fabric and paper and the 'masks', beaks, party hats & more that can be created so simply with the use of this die!  

Now this 'beak' is pretty simple and if you see it in person you can see what started out as a carrot …Lennon was helping me work on some samples for my upcoming Petal Cone Die class and when he pretended to eat the carrot I looked over at him and realized how much it looked like a beak. … needless to say, my prepping time was out the window and we started having fun coming up with a beak for him to play 'dress-up' with!  How fun!  You can see he enjoyed himself and with the glory of digital photography, he was able to see how his flying skills improved from one photo to the next!  

I must share the excitement of these new found flying skills!  Enjoy! 


I can guarantee, we'll be back with more from the Petal Cone die and in the mean time, I'm off to go craft with my little Super Bird!

What great pictures!  Love the beak too., and that Lennon is such a character!
I am sure that you could also create many other types of masks and costumes with the Petal Cone Die and a combination of Stampin' Up's other dies and punches.  Here is an idea….Maybe someday you could have some sort of contest to see who can create the most interesting costume or mask. and have your followers  and club members take a vote.  I'm sure that we would see some interesting uses for all the dies and punches come out of THAT:)

These photos are fantastic! Lennon sure loves to pose for them. They both are good subjects to photograph and you get to use your classes in photography to use. I agree with Susie~a contest/challenge would be a good idea. Glad I can get your blog on my phone as I can’t sit at the computer yet, but when I do, these photos will be even better. Thank you for sharing your precious memories. Brenda
