This week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, our challenge was to create something that had a bird on it. I chose to create a birdhouse ornament with spring colors. I used my latest, favorite stamp set from Paper Trey Ink, With Sympathy (see...this is set is super versatile!). I also used the Bird House Pattern and tutorial I got from Nicole Heady's blog (founder of Paper Trey Ink), this birdhouse was actually created as a Christmas ornament originally...
So I printed out my pattern on the paper, cut the birdhouse house, stamped it and assembled it. Now I didn't have the LONG rectangle Nestabilities that was called for the roof, so what' a stamper to do? Fudge a little of course! I actually just got out my scallop scissors (they FINALLY have a use other than collecting dust!) and I cut my roof out like that. I then threaded my string hanger through my roof before I put it on my little bird house. I added the base I cut out from my Cricut Mini Monograms cart and some swarvoski rhinestones to the side of the little bird house. Then tied some pretty ribbon on my hanger. I stamped and cut out my bird and glittered it, then I double pop dotted it off the birdhouse (see photo #2). It was really a quick little project, I thought these would look super cute on someones Easter tree... recipe below as usual, thanks for dropping in!
