Modern Birdhouses Cards with Vicky P. Birdhouses Through the Seasons Collection | Video

Hello, crafters! I am thrilled to share several modern cards featuring a new die collection by my friend Vicky P. with Spellbinders. This year Spellbinders has teamed up with some fantastic designers and cardmakers to bring you unique influencer collections. And Vicky’s collection is one of them.

This collection is called Birdhouses through the Seasons and it features 4 different birdhouses die sets, each designed to work for a different season – summer, fall, winter, and spring. There is also a set of birds and a set of sentiment stamps – so you have everything you need to make the Seasonal Birdhouse cards. It is a very clever collection and it is very well designed, too.

I have a slightly different approach to these products, my cards use the birdhouses in a different way. I wanted to make floral birdhouses for Birthday and Thank you cards. These are the types of cards I seem to always lack in my card stash and I always have the most need for them. And I know everyone loves flowers, plus I am kind of obsessed with the Spellbinders’ new floral dies, so I wanted to pair the birdhouses with the floral dies, then add some simple foiled sentiments and a dark dramatic background.

CARD DETAILS

I used a different birdhouse die set for each of my cards – Fall (for the card below), Winter (for the card with yellow flowers), and Spring (for the card with pink flowers) and paired it with pretty flowers from 2 floral die sets – Mini Blooms & Sprigs and Simply Perfect Layered Blooms.

I also added foiled sentiments using plates from 2 different sets – Scalloped Rectangle Glimmer Essentials Set with Sentiments and Mini Everyday Sentiments set. My foiling was don in Copper foil.

Vicky’s collection was an absolute delight to work with. I am looking forward to using her Summer Birdhouse die to make several Lighthouse cards – these dies are just too cute to resist!

    1. Yana, these cards are simply wonderful! I watched Vickie’s video yesterday and ordered the winter set and the birds. Can’t wait until they arrive. I love the way you added the flowers. Perfect!! I could watch you create all day. Your videos always offer great tips. Thank you for sharing your art with us!

      1. thank you, Diana! Yesss, Vicky’s video is so inspirational! I now can’t wait to play with the Summer one – the lighthouse, it is so clever 🙂

    1. Wow!!! These are Gorgeous cards!!! I’m so happy for Vicky!!!

    1. These were such pretty cards and the birdhouses made me think of Spring. It is coming some day, although, Friday’s snowstorm in NH makes me wonder. Thanks for all the tips and especially like watching you foil.

      1. We’ve been having snow still, so I can relate to your weather. Spring can’t get here soon enough! Thank you, Patricia.

    1. Love the way you used the birdhouses, with the florals. Absolutely gorgeous. I already ordered mine. Can’t wait to get them.

    1. Wow! Your cards are gorgeous! I just love the way your birdhouses/florals pop off the dark backgrounds! The foil sentiments are perfect. 🙂
