For the Birds.....

Hello everyone: I'm back with my third card created with this super sweet and beautiful oldie but totally goodie stamp set from Stampin' Up! (2004), this time it's a line up of adorable birdhouses.

Ok, aren't these little houses just so sweet? I did pretty much the same as with my previous cards, stamping the images with gray ink, colored it with my Prismacolors and then re-stamp it using Versafine black ink for a nice, crisp outline.  The images are very small so it helps to keep your pencils nice and sharpened to a fine point.  The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley (retired), the sentiment is from SU set called "Wetlands", it's like the little birds are thanking the owner for their room and board.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment is from an old Flourishes sets called "Gerbera Daisies" and it's one of my favorites about friendship.

I would like to play with the following challenges.

Crafter's Castle
Anything Goes/option Spring.
April Challenge, "Animals"
I have 3 little birds on my card.

  1. Awww, so cute! It's impossible to pick a favorite from this set. I went back and looked at the other two to be sure. Nope, can't pick a favorite. I've always especially loved anything to do with birdhouses, though. Gosh, this is pretty, Maria! Hope you had a lovely Easter!
