Here is a look at the projects that I created with the kit:
For this first card, I stamped the birds  from the kit onto X-Press It Blending card using Oreo ink and colored in the birds with OLO markers. I chose colors to match a color combination I chose from my Color Cube box (card 391): Guava, Cherry Pop, Sweet Potato Pie, Pineapple, Blue Raspberry, and Poblano Pepper. The birds are colored with a solid color and then I added details with a white gel pen. Cheeks are added to the birds using Cherry Pop enamel dots. I love how they turned out!


The birds are lined up across a Mini Slim background that is stamped with the branch from the Doodle Bird Digs stamp set in the kit. I stamped the branch multiple times on Toffee cardstock with Sugar Cube ink. I added a Toffee frame cut out with the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate die and a sentiment from the Mini Strips - So Tweet stamp that is embossed in white on Toffee cardstock and cut out with the Mini Strips die.


For the next two cards I created, I stamped and embossed the birds in white on all of the cardstock colors (Guava, Cherry Pop, Sweet Potato Pie, Pineapple, Blue Raspberry, and Poblano Pepper). For this card, I wanted to create an all over design with the birds, arranging them on a piece of Blue Raspberry cardstock. Once I liked the arrangement, I adhered them down and added Bits & Pieces - Clay Hearts scattered around the birds.


The patterned panel is added to a Toffee card base and is finished off with the sentiment from the Mini Strips - So Tweet stamp.


I took more of the birds that I embossed in white and tucked them into a tree that I cut out using the Make Like a Tree die collection from Poblano Pepper and Toffee cardstock. The tree has all sorts of places to tuck the birds in so they look like they are nesting in the tree!


The tree is added to a Blue Raspberry cardstock that is impressed with the Cloudy Skies Piercing Plate and framed with a Blue Raspberry frame that is cut out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die. I sprinkled hearts throughout the tree, both Bits & Pieces - Clay Hearts and hearts die cut from white cardstock, and added the 'home tweet home' sentiment strip from the Mini Strips - So Tweet stamp.
