Bird Houses

A stamped bird house, birds and flowers on my card today and it wasn't until I saw the picture on the screen that I realised the birdhouse itself was slightly wonky so I stamped and coloured another one and put it over the top, but straight this time so that the finished card looks better..  Quite a few snippets used in the making of this card so I will be popping along to the Playground with it.  Everything came from my various snippet boxes apart from the base card and the woodgrain background.  I used a snippet of tan card and embossed with brick texture, cut various circular windows into another toning piece of card and a brown piece to back it.  The various images were stamped onto scraps of cream card and coloured using pencils - these pieces were then put into place behind the little round 'windows' before assembling the card using thin foam tape for a bit of dimension..  As usual there is a great prize for the lucky person whose name is picked at the end of the two week challenge.


  1. The circles all look so cute and I love the birdhouse too with all the flowers and birdies! Great design for this birthday card!

  2. Great card for the Snippets Playground, it’s one of those optical illusions where I can’t tell if the circles are innies or outies until I read your post :) xxx

  3. Cute birdie card using your snippets Val


  4. Hi Val,
    I tried to comment yesterday but Google was having tantrums and not letting me comment on some of the posts.
    So I gave up and thought it would be better today which it is.
    It also wouldn't let me post my card it was also playing silly B excure the swearing.
    Love your wonderful card and what a great way of using snippets too.
    Love all the stamped images inside those circles.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. What a great snippets card. Thanks for submitting homework to the Snippets Playground.
    If you fancy trying out some mulled cider, I understand Carol L is going to try and smuggle some in. Meet us round the back of the bike sheds! x

  6. Great snippets card Val! Like Lesley, I couldn't tell whether your image circles were 'innies or outies' either. They kept changing when I looked away and back again. A lovely design and a lot of fiddly work as wel.
