Hello friends! Happy Monday! Today I am excited to share with you my project for Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Challenge #2 - Let's See That Hoard!
This is a Color Challenge with a twist. Pick the thing or things that you seem to hoard the most, and using the color scheme shown below, create a project that showcases your hoarded item or items. Do you hoard buttons, beads, ribbon, papers, stickers? Show your hoard, but only the items that match the color scheme! (Please note, you do not have to use all the colors in the photo, nor match the colors exactly. Just use the photo and the colors to inspire you to dig through your hoard.)
Here is my project for this neat challenge!
To make this birdhouse, I used a the Sizzix Bigz XL 3d Rounded Birdhouse that I have been hoarding forever! I haven't used my steel-ruled dies much because I usually have my Grand Caliber die cutting machine out. But since before Christmas, I have been using the Teresa Collins eBosser Machine that I won. You can refresh your memory about that HERE.
To create this little birdhouse, I used a ton of stuff from my hoard!! The papers are from Heartfelt Creations - Posy Patch Collection. The flowers are made using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and Foliage dies (which work fantastic in the eBosser). The Blue Bird was created using Spellbinders Media Mixage Birds One Die and Blanks. I cut/embossed the bird twice from Sticky Backed Canvas and adhered those onto the Birds One Metal Blank. Then I used a sponge and some ink to make it blue. I added the little eye with a black marker. I put everything together using a low-temp glue gun. I also used a Doily from my stash as part of the base of this birdhouse!
I hope my project inspires you to particpate in this wonderful challenge! You could win a very nice prize package from Shari Czerwinski, Independent Consultant for Close to My Heart! You have until March 2 to get your project linked up with this blog post over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Challenge #2.
