Good Saturday morning. I have a homey bird and birdhouse scene to share with you today using several new Taylored Expressions dies that I just received in the mail this week. I used the Shade Tree Cutting Plate, Birch Tree Accessories, Build a Scene Rolling Hills and the Build a House set and paired them with Impression Obsession Leaves and Stems, Fence Border and Tiny Flowers, I couldn’t resist using my favorite color combination of red, white and green.
I cut the tree using white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The Shade Tree cutting plate creates a tree within a frame of it’s own but I decided to cover it with a red frame to bring another element of red to my scene. I attached one of the rolling hill sections to the back of the frame and then applied strips of mounting tape. I sponged light blue clouds on the card base and then attached the second rolling hill section. I mounted the frame and tree over the scene base.
I cut the little birdhouse and roof, applied brown ink to the house section and assembled. I applied tiny leaves and a flower to the roof of the birdhouse and then attached it to the tree limb. I finished by adding a tiny portion of the picket fence to front of the birdhouse for another touch of hominess.
I cut the sign post twice, cut the sign portion off of one and attached it over top of the other to add a level of dimension. I applied brown ink to the sign with a mini applicator and then attached the letters with touches of Crafter’s Pick glue. I added a few sprigs of foliage and flowers to the sign post and inserted it in front of the tree trunk with mounting tape. I inserted a few more stems of flowers across the ground area and attached the white picket fence. I finished by attaching the birds together on the tree limb.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
