Hi Everyone!

Today I used paper from the dcwv Songbird 12" x 12" block to create some all occasion cards. There are 2 pages each of 18 designs in the block. One set of pages is filled with birdhouses that are different colors, sizes, and shapes. Some of them are glittered. I used some of those birdhouses on today’s cards and have lots of them left to use on another day. I think they’d look wonderful with a little holly on them for Christmas cards. I will try that one of these days. Oh, and a little snow on them would be great too! Maybe snow created with a white Puffy Velvet Fabric Marker.

The Songbird block is only available in Michaels. I saw some ideas for it on the dcwv blog.

I used a Hero Arts wooden stamp called "Sweet Bird" on this card. "Hello" was created with an A Muse Artstamp.

The other birds on these cards were created with stamps from the Hero Arts
"Decorative Birds" set. There are 4 different birds in the set. Some have long legs and others have short ones. The legs can be masked and then some of the birds will appear to be flying.

The tiny bird on this card was created with the "Tiny Bird" stamp from A Muse Artstamps. "Happy Bird Day to You" is a stamp from Stampabilities.

Have a great night!
