Snow Day Stampin'

I haven't been stamping for days. Snow days, sickness, cabin fever, getting on each other's nerves... I finally dragged myself to the stampin' room. Krystal and her team know how to get to me with their inspiration challenges!

My daughter and I were watching the birds hopping around the newly fallen snow this morning, going after the bird food. That helped determine this card.

I brayered the sky and snipped out a birdhouse. I created the bird by stamping on the back of my DSP and cutting him out. A bunch of sponging later, here ya go!

Stamps: Season of Friendship, Cheep Talk; Paper: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Love Impressions DSP; Ink: Early Espresso, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip marker, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Brayer, Heart-to-Heart punch, Crop-o-dile, Sponge, Texture Plate Kit #4, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by!

Love that little bird house--hope that cute fowl is just fluffy, cause otherwise it's going to be a tight fit! Very fun. . . .

The paper-pieced bird is so cute as is the birdhouse. So cute! And I love the variation in color on the background/sky. Looks like when the light is just barely shining through the clouds.

An adorable card! It's so nice when the inspiration comes from just outside the window.
