Blooming Blossom Birdhouse

With spring finally here Hand Stamped Sentiments has a Blooming Blossoms Challenge.  Make any project with flowers.  Now how can you pass this up!  There are so many possibilities and endless ideas for this challenge.  I moved my craft area to a room in my house where I have a window and I can see and hear birds chirping.  It’s such a wonderful sound.  Recently I had a cardinal right outside my window.  I happen to love these birds with their bright colored red feathers. You can’t miss them.  This week my project is celebrating flowers and Cardinals.

I wanted to use bright happy colors so I went with Stampin’ Up! In Colors – Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade.  Love, Love, Love these colors.  At first I wasn’t sure I liked them together but as I was creating my project it all came together.  My birdhouse card features a large Blushing Bride flower punched with the Blossoms Petal Punch.  I also used the retired Trio Punch for the small flowers.  I was sad to see this punch retire but a good substitute is the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I also used the Fancy Flower Punch to frame the opening of the birdhouse.  For the branch and the Cardinal I used the Two-Step Bird Punch.

I’ve seen the Cardinal on many blogs so I made mine with the Two-Step Bird Punch.  I punched two wings and used one for the crest and colored the face with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker, sponged the edges for depth and added a Basic Clear Rhinestone for the eye.
