Fun-Mare Before Christmas Blog Hop

Oh Ladies! Thank you for your coming back and welcome to another blog hop hosted by Jess of http://www.kinderstampo.com/  If you just left Iva's blog hop then you are in the right spot.

Autumn Birdhouse
Ingredients:
Wooden Birdhouse
Sandpaper
Outdoor Metallic paint
Gillter paint
Sponge Applicator
2.5x6 Designer Paper
Cricut Cartridges: Stretch you Imagination and October 31st, Tie the Knot
White Gel Pen
Color Chaulk
Peach Keen Stamp: #660 Laughy Taffy Face Assortment
StazOn All Purpose Ink Black
Glitter Glue
Bling
Hot glue gun
Scissors
Paper Cutter
Hook Screw
Ribbon




 Sand down rough edges

Apply with outdoor paint (Inca Gold) let dry
 Apply glitter glue (Gold)
 apply die images. I used brown craft paper (sturdy)
 apply more glitter glue
 I used Cloud 9 4x6 designer paper. I cut it down to 2.5x6 inches and applied hot glue
 While waiting for paint to dry I assembled my pumpkin die cuts.
I cut the pumpkin 1.5 inches three times and added pop-up dots
used my fav clear stamps by Peachy Keen Stamps Laughy Taffy Collection
http://www.peachykeen.com/
Used Inkadinkado Chalks and white gel pen
 To cover the line and edges I applied bling with hot glue
 Apply ribbon around the top and bottom of birdcage

 added hook screw after this
I used the glitter glue to outline the die cuts I applied on top of the roof
in different colors for 3D effect
added dimensional fall elements
let dry - add ribbon to hook

TA DA~!
 





It looks really nice once the glitter dries!

Hope you enjoyed my project
