There is a whole lot of "casing" (coping and sharing) going on with the following 2-step bird punch examples. Fortunately, as a Demonstrator it is a pleasure to work with a company and other Demonstrators who embrace the "Statement of the Heart" as their motto. I thought I would post it here for you today:

Another example of how I used the 2-Step Bird punch and the extra large Flower punch together....this time on one of my Scrapbook pages.

2-step Bird Punch Tropical Flower with Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss (both retired, but very much a favorite of mine)
And here is my Clown made with the 2-Step Bird Punch. Cased from Technique-Freak. I just used a leftover scrapbook stack to put this together since I was playing. I made another one for St. Patrick's Day shown below. Again it was made with leftover scraps.
I love both of these new punches....well, what can I say, I love all of the Stampin' Up! punches. There are so many unique creations we can make with them. Have fun!
