Let's Craft Together Country Birdhouse


Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn!!  


Today I'm hopping with a bunch of AWESOME Australian crafters in our monthly blog hop.  

I was pretty excited to get crafting for our theme this month - mainly because I was super keen to try out this birdhouse!!  


Our theme this month is "Rustic" which I think is just a GREAT theme and has so much potential!


I just loved the look of this Country Birdhouse bundle - and went totally crazy with my project.  I've also used the Distressed Tile embossing folder for my card.  The folder was inked up with some Wild Wheat ink and then I embossed Crumb Cake cardstock.  After the embossing, I then swished over the panel using Old Olive ink, and then sponged using a blending brush with Early Espresso ink - and had so much fun!!  And finally I splattered the panel with white ink - cause it's supposed to be rustic!


The colours I've used for the birdhouse are:  Lemon Lolly, Pecan Pie with touches of Early Espresso and Wild Wheat for the stamping.  See the cute little embellishment the bird is standing on?  That comes from the Industrial Trinkets and I coloured it with a Pecan Pie Stampin' Blend.  The stamping for the birdhouse was actually done on some of the Country Woods designer paper for extra interest.  


And I used lots of gorgeous Rainbow Dots to make those cute lil flowers pop!! 


And inside the card has more of the embossed panel and some stamping around the greeting.


I hope you are inspired!! Now, make sure you keep hopping to see lots more amazingness!!
