delay in the sale of little bitty bird
love lives here

these sweet little birds will be worth the wait

Welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. Even though there will be a delay in the sale of Little Bitty Bird, I have a few projects today to share with you that use the set. Fillable Frames #11 will be available for purchase as scheduled on December 15th. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. I promise that Little Bitty Bird will be worth the wait!


For the first card I have to share, I die cut the bird body from Ocean Tides felt. I got a little detailed with this little bird embroidering the bird image onto the felt piece. I used the stamp image as a guide and did a backstitch for the body and beak and a french knot for the eye.

I wanted the little bird to stand out and not compete with the background so I kept the card base very simple and monochromatic. I used the Fillable Frames #11 die for my image base in kraft and it works perfectly so the little bird is the center of attention.


Time consuming and super detailed? Maybe. But, I really love little hand crafting projects like this and love when I can incorporate them into my paper crafting projects.


For this card I used the bird body die cut so that I could set the little bird right into the tree. I used a light peach colored Copic marker to add a rosy belly to my bird. It looks like she is waiting for someone to meet her in the tree, doesn't it? The "miss you" sentiment fit perfectly with this card in the frame image from Fillable Frames #11


There are more exciting sneak peeks to see today: Nichole & Lisa are showcasing the Mat Stack 2 Collection and Nichole & Erin are also showcasing the Year of Flowers: Poinsettia set. Melissa and Dawn will also have projects to share on their blogs today with the things they having coming out for this month's release!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you tomorrow!
