Spring Birdhouse - Spring Has Returned here today with a birdhouse card. I'm using one of Suzanne's newest files which is so cute I couldn't resist. BIG GRIN. It's available on the Silhouette onLine store. Just click on the image to purchase.

I'm also using a quote, part of a quote and sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design. ("Sometimes I Just Look Up..."); ("Spring Has Returned..."); ("Just For You" 4pce set)

Scored and folded my white card to create a 5"w x 7"h card.

Embossed the clouds using Elizabeth Craft Designs  "Clouds" embossing folder, then hit the high points direct to paper with Distress "Tumbled Glass" pad.

Opened the file, increased the size so the birdhouse height was approx 7"h. Cut all the elements from white cardstock and colored with various Distress pads and markers. Assembled everything. Used a fabric ribbon of leafy vine which was white and I colored with Distress Stain "Mowed Lawn". Added golden yellow pearl centers to the flowers. Voila - so easy...

I used my Misti to do the stamping, both for the quote and sentiment, masking the rest of the quote around the word "Smile" and using Versafine Black Onyx, then clear embossing.

Inside: I stamped the bird (Stacy Stamps "Chipping Sparrow") using the black, clear embossed and cut around it. Colored with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. Adhered to inside.

Again used my Misti to stamp the words using the black and clear embossing.

Hope you enjoyed today's project.
