Birds of a Feather by Lori!

Hello again! This is my final turn on the Creative Team here, sniff, sniff. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and I want to thank you for the lovely comments on my projects.
I have a few projects for you today...I couldn't decide on just one!  Here's the first:


I used the Birds of a Feather and Free As a Bird stamp sets here. The house bases were cut with the Sizzix house die, then covered with 7 Gypsies Conservatory paper. I also used the Sizzix On the Edge dies on the roofs of the houses, and the Bigz Branch Tree (one branch!) for the bird perch. Oh! And some pleated tissue tape under the roof of the big house.

And, here are some cards that I made using the Gibson Girls Small plate and Birds of a Feather set.

I used diffuser plates to allow for a flat stamping surface.  Then, some distress ink and extra embellishments for the finishing touches...simple but beautiful!

I'd like to thank the wonderful crew at the Artistic Stamper for having me during the month of September, it's been a fantastic experience!

Completely scrummy! Love your little trio of houses, the papers and jewel like colours; and the cards look great - diffusers have to go on my Christmas wish list I think!
