I think I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I have several bird feeders in our backyard.  When I saw the Garden Birdhouses stamp set, I knew I had to have it.  Cute birds and birdhouses? Yes, please! 


Garden Birdhouses


Garden Birdhouses stamp set


I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock and Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I layered pieces of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper to pieces of Balmy Blue cardstock and then adhered them to the card front.  Sweet Symmetry is one of nine Designer Series Papers on sale until August 2nd! 



Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper


I stamped the branch and birdhouse onto Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and the Garden Birdhouses stamp set.  I colored the birdhouse using Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends.  I used Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to fill in areas of the branch and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the leaves. At the last minute I decided to add the bird and stamped it with Memento Ink and colored it with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. 

I layered the birdhouse onto a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and then added Stampin’ Blends to the back and adhered it to the Balmy Blue/Designer Series Paper panels.  The sentiment was stamped  in Memento Ink and cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies (these dies can be used with Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine).  On the back, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right-side only and adhered the sentiment below the birdhouse.
