Hello friends! Today I have to show you a card, a tag and a not-so-fancy bird house! I was asked to guest design at DYSU, the challenge this week is “Use your Scraps”. Here is the first of my three creations.
27092011432
All the PPs you see here are digi freebies. I tried to match a few pattern papers in my scrap box and I think these go well together.

For the sky I used, Clearsnap (Colorboxcat eye queues – french blue). The birdies are from Just some lines and are coloured with regular Faber Castell’s . I added a bit of sparkle to them.
The super cool red glittery sticker heart, purple glitter balls and jumbo chunky glitter is from Pie Lane.
27092011442 I added some hand stitching. All the panels are ink distressed (Archival Ink – Sepia)
Challenges for card: Creative belli, Divas by design,
Next up!

A matching tag! I love this tag! SO NEAT! The sentiment is handwritten. The thin yellow strip running behind the scalloped circle is a Pie Lane border sticker. It is totally fabulous to spice up your project! I think I should have added one more parallel strip.
And the last thing…

This bird house is made from scratch, I didn't use any template for it and I don't remember the measurements! LOL You can see the uneven hole? Awesome no?! haha I have used fabric dyes to colour the CS; originally Kraft.
The daisies are punched, the five petal flowers and vines are Silhouette cut. I added a few copper glitter balls as fillers. I wanted to make a fence and a cute little mail box but as I  made this for my aunt, she said NO. She wanted this one just like it is shown and I can go ahead make another one in blue with a fence and everything! LOL
The roof panels have been cut with fancy small-scallop scissors. The walls are embossed with sizzix texture plate – distressed. The roof panels are also embossed and the roof looks kinda tiled because I used a checkered texture plate.
Challenges for bird house: Stamp Insanity,
Hope you like these. I like the tag THE BEST.
Some of you asked which cell phone do I use to take pictures, its Nokia N97.
Have a great day!

I saw your lovely creations over at DYSU and just adore your bird house.

I too like using up my scraps - not because it's hard to get craft stuff but because I hate waste and want to try and use every little bit.

Amazing, Amazing, AMAZING!!! I can't even believe how lovely these are. They're cute and beautiful all rolled into one, well three... The tall card is incredible with all those teensy little bits around the circle & the gem bow & the sweet cut out birds & the stitched papers. Your tag is cuter than cute LOVE those colours together. And your house! I'm in Awe. Pure AWE! Thanks for the incredible inspiration, as usual-but better and better each time.
