I just have to say, "I am lovin' this card!"

Sometimes what you have in your head actually translates to paper.  This was one of those times - it worked.  What worked?  The birdhouse. The minute I saw the new What's Up Punch in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog - I immediately envisioned a birdhouse.

How to make Dawn's "What's Up" Birdhouse:

  • Stamp Hardwood image with Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock
  • Punch 1/4" circle in the previously stamp piece.  Use the new 1/4" Handheld Punch 
  • Then punch the "large arrow" shape (aka birdhouse) from the same shape, positioning the negative 1/4" circle space in the lower part of the birdhouse. Sponge with Crumb Cake ink
  • Punch 2 more "birdhouse" shapes - another from Crumb Cake, and one from Coastal Cabana (cut off triange "roof" and sponge with Crumb Cake ink)
  • Adhere roof onto birdhouse. Then adhere that layer onto last punched Crumb Cake "birdhous" shape with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Decorate as desired
  • you need a "How'd She DO That" video?  Sometimes things are easier to show than to write out.  Let me know.

Additional tips from Dawn:

  • To get the "thinking of you" greeting positioned correctly on the arrow...I stamped the greeting upside down and then punched with the What's Up punch (discovered that via trial and error)
  • To adhere the sequins: I "rolled" up glue dots to give them a slightly raised look.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it! 

Happy Stamping~Dawn O
