Hi friends. With spring just a few months away, It’s time to start thinking about singing birds and cute birdhouses. Sunny Studio Stamps has a cute new birdhouse die set called, Build-a-Birdhouse that has a number of fun design elements to make one-of-a-kind houses for our feathered friends. There’s two darling birds in the set, too.

To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I splattered watercolor paints in vibrant colors on a white card base. I added a cloudy sky with a stitched cloud design. Sunny Studios offers a cute stitched cloud die set called Fluffy Clouds to make a fun stitched sky background with as many clouds as you like. I applied Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass and Salvaged Patina for a varied sky color.  I attached the blended background, bordered with 2- 1/8″ strips made from green pattern paper from the  Spring Fever paper pad on the top and bottom, I attached it to the splattered front panel.

I made three birdhouses, mixing and matching the die cut pieces. Each one was colored using shades of pink, oranges and aquas. Additional details were added like scalloped roofs, hearts, flowers and more. Each birdhouse was attached to the card on white posts. I added a number of blue birds to the houses, too.

Using the Big Bold Greetings stamp set and coordinating dies, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” in two tones of blue and cut it out. I attached it with foam tables to make it stand out. I added additional flowers around the greeting and a few sparkly sequins, too.
