What can I say about these set of TWEET dies!? Each die in the set is easy to use and self-explanatory.
I started out with creating Sweet Birds first.
Sweet Birds on a Branch Etched Dies: this is part of the Birdhouses Through the Seasons by Vicky Papaioannou. This set has nine thin metal dies creates many bird designs! There are six bird motifs from standing forward, side to side and even one in motion. Wings, bellies, and feet can be cut separately to add dimension or for different colors. Other accents are 4-inch branch and four leaf shapes.
I then use pattern paper and created the birdhouse. If you have some random pattern paper, this is a great and easy way to use them. I used Essential Rock Paper Pad (Altenew).
For the background, I took out Altenew Leaf Bed Stencil and partially stenciled the backdrop for the birdhouse. You can have the birdie peeking out from the inside of the birdhouse. However, I like the bird so much, I wanted to show off the yellow bird. Isn't it darling?
I kept the color schemes simple and used Poured Acrylic Paper Pad for the flowers and rooftops.
What do you think? I have more to share with the Summer, Fall and Winter collection. Be warned: If you are interested in this release, you must act fast. Some of the items are already sold out.
