Die~Namites Bird Houses

Hello Everyone!

There are so many great new spring dies  at Die~Namites; I am up on the Die~Namites blog today and it was hard for me to decide which new die to use.  I settled on this wonderfully springy and whimsical  Fancy Birdhouses Die~Namites Die; I paired it with a brand new sentiment stamp of mine that makes a perfect house warming card!

Flowers were added to the tree branch, using the Spring Blossoms Die~Namites Die.  I added more whimsy to the card by using felt for my flowers and leaves.

I made a few of the flowers a darker yellow by pressing them into my yellow stamp pad. 

To make the birdhouses, I selected several patterned papers that I thought went well together.  I cut the houses out in the variety of papers, then pieced the different patterns together.

  Each house is layered onto a  cardstock base a couple of layers of cs thick.  This not only gives a solid base to adhere pieces to (so none of my little pieces fall out), but also adds a bit of dimension to the card.  I wanted to pop the bird houses up a bit but felt that dimensionals would be too much.

Once my die cuts were complete, I free hand cut a couple of clouds from some adhesive masking paper and then sponged in a sky.  To finish off the card, I then adhered the die cuts, stamped my sentiment and added a multi-looped Hemptique twine bow, embellished with two buttons.

To recap, my card was made using these two Die~Namites Dies~
