Once Upon a Springtime Bird House

I saw this little bird houses at Joannes and thought it would make a cute decoration.  I just love this Graphic 45 paper "Once Upon a Springtime."  The birdhouse was only $1.00 and I used most of my scraps left over from the Easter Baskets to cover the bird house.  I used Nellie S. punches, Martha Stewart punch and Glimmer mist.  At one of Irina Blount's workshops she showed us how to make vellum flowers.  I could only find clear so I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to give it some color. I distressed the papers with brushed corduroy, rusty hinge, and picket fence.  The Graphic 45 cutouts are added on the top and sides.  I used pop outs for the sides.  The little bird is from Vintage Trinkets. This was fun to make.  I have two other styles that I am going to do.

Easter Place Card Basket

This little basket will go at each person's table setting at Easter with Easter treats.  One done and 12 more to go.  Basket recipe:  Once Upon A Springtime paper, glimmer mist, and Martha Stewart Punches.  The flowers are punched with Nellie S. punches.  I used distressed ink on all parts of the basket.  I like the way the handle of the basket turned out.  I think this is a new Martha Stewart punch.

Good For A Hug Birthday Card

This is a simple 5 x 4 1/4 gift card holder for a 9-year old.  On this birthday card I used one piece of dp paper and one piece of cardstock.  Recipe:  Three Bugs In A Rug dp paper, Tim Holtz number, ribbon, stickles and sentiments.  I did paper piece the cupcake but it is hard to see online.  For some reason I could not get a good picture.
