I used the Birdhouse image for my first card today. After coloring it with Copic markers, I cut it out and glued a straw (which I had cut in half lengthwise) to the back -- to serve as the pole. The DP for both of my cards today come from a K & Company pad called Julianne. I cut a blue piece with Labels 13 to back my popped-up birdhouse, matting it in white.
I punched some greenery using a Martha Stewart punch and popped on a flower at the base of the "pole." To add some texture, I put some Ultrafine Razzberry Fizz Flower Soft on the flowers cascading down the side of the birdhouse.
I used the nested birds for my second card. Aren't they rather funky looking birds? I brought in some turquoise with the sentiment, matting and brads for the eyes. I added some ribbon and a charm. The diecut is Labels 4 -- both regular and small. I like that Spellbinders added some "small" versions of the labels. It's a lot easier than tracing around the edge and cutting by hand.
Don't forget to comment on all the participating DT members' blogs today for your chance to win today's set.
