I'm going to show 2 different birds today.  The first is a chick in an egg using only 2 punches. I used Daffodil Delight for the chick and Summer Smooches DSP for the egg.  More Mustard and Basic Black Markers add the final touches.

Punches used:  Extra-Large Oval and Bird Builder (only use the bird)
Cut top of egg as shown and cut off tail of bird.  
Glue bird behind egg, attach top of egg with a Stampin' Dimensional, then color the beak and eye.  
The second project today uses only one punch - the Bird Builder Punch (well, and a little flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack).

The small flower is from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  The wing was punched from Summer Smooches DSP and 2 branches were punched from Lucky Limeade card stock.  I used Real Red for the bird and flower.  
I trimmed the stems off the leaves, then placed them like a mirror image.  
Attach the wing with a Stampin' Dimensional to pop it up, glue the flower on then add a  little bling with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  
Glue the leaves behind the bottom of the bird.  I've added another sample with a different color theme.

Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of card stock that has been punched over a coordinating card stock for a reverse effect. The large cutting surface of our punches give you better punching leverage and cutting precision, and the sleeker body makes it easy to store.
