Flying by... say hi :) Each month i fall in love with a new set of stamps and this month is no exception! How cute are these little birdhouses! Im even wondering if i can incorporate some of the stamps when i decorate the chicken coop!
I covered the houses in glossy accents to give a shiney rounded look. The birdhouse was stamped and then cut so that when it was placed on the card with the ribbon between the pieces, it looks like the poles holding up the houses are longer than they actually are on the stamp.
I threaded the buttons with the twine and then attached to the ribbon with glossy accents.

Supplies used all Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated.

Bird Watching Stamp set
Rustic wood buttons

Rustic White Cardstock
Chai ink cube
Cream rustic button twine
Hibiscus ink
Basic Grey patterned paper
Corrigated card (misc)
Espresso adirondak ink

Glossy Accents
Stampin Up ribbon


  1. What a pretty card! I love the birdhouses.

    My husband is oldest of four boys (and I'm not quite sure they're grown up yet!) So I know you must have your hands full!

  2. This is a lovely set - may have to be my next purchase. The card is lovely and the use of the ribbon to extend really clever.

  3. Wow Debbie,

    This is lovely and the paper piecing on it looks perect. What a beautiful card x

  4. Gorgeous Debbie - I get my Pti order today yay! I didn't order the birds set (was trying to be good!) but now I want it lol! Have a great weekend!
