Bird House

Good Morning!

Just a lot of wind and rain so far.  Hopefully this storm will be a bust!

This project will be entered into the Papertrey Ink Challenge, Create And Decorate A Bird House.

A template is supplied on the PTI Post. 

This was a nice way to spend a winter afternoon.

I have been obsessed with this Designer Paper from Papertrey Ink, Green Boutique.  It must be because of the 'sea like' colors.  It is beautiful!  I used the stamp and dies sets, also from PTI, Daydreamer and Garden GateSwiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.

I created the roof panel by using 2 Spellbinders die sets; Fanciful Lattice and Long Classic Rectangles.  I had to crop the Lattice one just a bit.  Inks in; Black Licorice, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise.

Cheery Lynn Fancy Flourish die.  Thick Twine, Sparkly Ribbon and Iridescent Sequins for accents.
6 days til Spring?  Hope I can hold on!


  1. Now isn't that the cutest thing ever!! How fun it would be to receive this as I am sure they would LOVE it...and yes those papers are beautiful, very 'calming'!! I just might have to get my old (very old) papertrey out and play with it, when I have, whenever that is ...lol!!

  2. Awwwww....what a sweet little birdhouse Donna and I just love how you've decorated it all in blues! Someone will definitely be smiling if you can bear to part with it! :0)

  3. This is adorable! The blues are beautiful and I love the way you have decorated it. Any bird would be proud to live there. lol Beautifully done!

  5. When it snows in Cape Cod, you make tons of cards. I can't keep up with the comments. Lol
    You know this has been my only complaint. This is so adorable and cute. You did a great job on a fascinating project. I wish I had your energy and motivation.
