Next I took the large heart and the letter dies from the Birdhouse die set. I lined them up on the front of the house panel. I ran the whole thing through my die cut machine and removed the cut pieces. On the back side of the house panel I glued some gray cardstock just behind the letters. I also cut the roof piece out of the same gray cardstock twice. One piece I adhered straight to the panel. The second piece I used a texture embossing folder on it to give it some, well, texture. I added bits of foam tape only on parts of the back before adhering it over the piece on the house panel. I rubbed my teflon folder over it so the cardstock would bend a little between the pieces of foam tape.
Next I added silver splatters. I also used the same silver to lightly paint the roof.
I cut another light purple panel using the main house die. This will be for the back of my bird house. I grabbed a stencil from my stash and applied purple ink with a blending brush. This way it won't just be plain when you look through the heart shaped window.
I set the panels aside and stamped out several elements from the Oopsy Daisy 6x6 stamp set and the Spring Birds 6x8 stamp set. I used a Copic markers to color them all. I scoured the internet for pictures of yellow birds. I used a yellow Finch and a yellow Oriole as my inspiration.
I love the adorable bees from Oopsy Daisy! I added tiny touches of Unicorn Stickles to the bee wings and the flower centers.
I just love the Slimline Birdhouse Pop Up die! It's so unique!
