This week our March host, Cindy Burgess, has challenged us to create this adorable bird house. The idea and template was created by Brenda Quintana. You can check out more of Brenda's samples here. Everyone is invited to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.
On my project sample, I printed out the template on kraft cardstock and cut out. The cut out template was then stamped using my sanded block stamp by SU in chocolate chip ink. The edges were then sponged with close to cocoa ink to age the bird house just a bit. Since I forgot to punch out a hole, I added a circle using my SU circle punch and then rolled a piece of cardstock for the bird to sit on.
After putting the template together, I then printed out my images from a NEW digi set by Stamps and Smiles called Love Birds. The images were colored up using my Copics and then cut out and added to the bird house. Pretty simple and LOTS of fun!!
I hope you were inspired by today's sample, please join me Thursday with another fun project & card. Don't forget to stop by Stamps and Smiles - Project Tuesday, the Design Team have some fun samples to show you.
Before I go, I would like to announce the winner of my card & ribbon giveaway. Congratulations to Linda Coughlin. Please email me so I can get your goodies out to you. Have a fun week!
