Simon Says........Animal Magic!

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog!


Our theme this week is "Animal Magic", and the team are all playing with Paper Smooches products.  If you have any, we'd love to see you using them, too, but you don't have to in order to enter.

I chose their Bird House die set, and as it turns out, my cards are made up of almost all dies!

SSS June 15


supplies: white, black, red, and kraft cardstock, dp from Basic Grey's Picadilly paper pad and a scrap of music paper, Paper Smooches Bird House dies, Memory Box Grove Branch, sentiment from Wplus9 Blanket Stitched Blooms, Simon's Stitched Rectangle die, twine

After determining I wanted to hang my birdhouse from the branch, I had the choice of stamping leaves around it or finding a suitable design paper, and I was happy to unearth this floral and leaf piece from a 2011 Basic Grey paper pad.  It's not too busy to compete with my music, allows the branch to stand out, and I like the colors, too!  The green scrap with my sentiment stamped on it is from the same paper pad, too.

There are 2 birdhouses in this set, and I used them both in my next card:
