Tonight is the February Papertrey Bloghop
This months challenge is to put a little "spring" into your step, by incorporating the flowers, familiar sights and colors of spring into a project. This is what I came up with.
I started by printing out this birdhouse template and cutting it out of Papertrey Stampers select white cardstock. Then I used a small nestabilitie circle die to cut out the window and added a piece of acetate on the back. The next thing I did was mask and stamp the flowers from the Forest Friends, With Sympathy, Little Lady, Women of Life and Beautiful Blooms Sets on all sides of the box with,Plum pudding,Lavender Moon, Berry Sorbet,Summer Sunrise, and Raspberry Fizz Perfect Match Inks. I stamped the stems and leaves from the new Beyond Basics Borders Set with Spring Moss and Leaf Green Perfect Match Ink. When I was done with that I colored around the flowers with SU Pink Passion and Pixie Pink Markers. The word Welcome was stamped with the Simple Alphabet Set and Perfect Match True Black Ink. The little bees are from The Flower Garden Sentiments set and were stamped with Perfect Match True Black ink then colored with a Y15 copic sketch marker and a white gel pen. For the roof I started by making the pattern that came with the template bigger. I cut a piece of Stampers Select White Cardstock 1 1/2 x 4 3/4. Then I colored it with a Pink Passion marker. Next I stamped the tiny polka dots from the Polka Dots Basics set with Snow White Ink on top of that piece and then used scalloped scissors on the edges. After that I attached the roof on one side with Score tape and then filled the box with gummy bears. I added repositional tape to the other side of the roof so it could be opened to get to get the gummy bears out. You also could fill these little birdhouse boxes with seeds if you wanted to. I hope this little birdhouse has helped make you feel like spring is on it's way. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night.
