Use faux or real stitching on your project".Thanks for stopping by!
I don't sew at all, in fact you are looking at someone who failed 'Home Economics' in the sewing component because my mother sewed all my sewing projects. One of projects was a bag, mine was twice as big as everyone else because I didn't read directions very well. So you know the old saying measure twice cut once... it didn't apply to me. So we given this birdhouse apparently I really have trouble following instructions, this image is called bluebirds. I made them doves using Stampendous 'Shaved Ice' to colour them and Tiger Orange glitter for the feet. I started off using Chocolate Chip as my base which is a 5" x 7" finished card size. I used Bo Bunny's collection called 'Little Miss' for the rest. I added two layers and then cut out bird cages from the same paper collection called 'Little Miss Maree'. Then I used a green paper which I ran thru a Stampin'Up Embossing folder called 'Delicate Designs Folders'. I then took out my paper piecing tool along with a mat and poked holes long the scalloped edge. I popped this up using pop up dots. I then took another piece called 'Little Miss Jamayka' and cut it out using just the left hand side of paper as shown. Again added some faux stitching along the left side & popped it up using pop dots. I cut out a bird cage using Spellbinders 'Bird Sanctuary' using the same green paper and then added some glitter using 'Aqua Marine' Glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle'. I colored the Bluebirds using my Prismacolor pencils and added some glitter to the flowers using Purple Portion and Black Suede for the hole in the bird house. I added some peach bow and ribbon to the right hand side of the card by May Arts.Pin It Now!
