Tweet Holidays Cards

Happy new week, everyone!  I have 5 Christmas cards today, all using the same Tweet Holidays images.  At this time of year, when I need so many cards, I've taken to making multiple variations of a card.  So I stamped these birds, colored them either as robins or bluebirds, and then built a card around them.

supplies: white, Audrey Blue, and Peacock Teal cardstock, MFT Tweet Holidays birds, PTI Mix & Mat frame die, Wplus9 Woodland Wreath and Hand Lettered Merry die, stamped sentiment from Simon Merry & Bright, Audrey Blue ink, Nuvo Creative pens to color images

This next one is a CASE of a card by Karolyn Loncon.  I love her idea of adding them to an ornament!

supplies: white and Audrey Blue cardstock, Tweet Holidays birds and holly, sentiment from (retired) Simon Yuletide Holiday, Audrey Blue ink, Stitched Circle die. red and white twine, Nuvo Creative pens

In my next examples, I colored my birds to be bluebirds.  The first one uses the littlest bird in the set, and I think this one is my favorite card.

supplies: white and Surf Blue cardstock, a bit of snowflake dp, Tweet Holidays bird and holly, Echo Park Snow Flurry embossing folder, PinkFresh Studio Adore Alpha dies, Wplus9 Hand Lettered Holiday sentiment, Nuvo Creative pens to color

supplies: white, Lipstick Red and Schoolhouse Red cardstock,  Tweet Holidays birds and holly leaves, the same Snow Flurry embossing folder, Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Die set stamped sentiment and die, Nuvo Creative pens

white and Cornflower Blue cardstock, Tweet Holidays birds, holly, and sentiment stamps, a holly embossing folder, Nuvo Creative pens 

There are matching dies for the Tweet Holidays set, if you'd like.

Thanks for sticking with me today - how goes your card making for the holidays?  I think I'm ready!

Lin, I love your collection of Tweet cards! This is the way to get those holiday cards made in a hurry, without repeating one!
I especially love the bluebirds [after our snow fell, I had 7 perched in the little tree in our front yard] and that lovely embossing folder - can you believe I don't have this one? lol
Well done, my friend!
