Introducing Songbirds

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink October countdown! 

Today's group post is all about the new set Songbirds What a special set!  I just love how these folk-style bird are paired with songs that are suited to match a number of special occasions.  It's so unique and easy to work with too!

Hope you like what I have to share with you today...
Up first are a couple Christmas projects.  This card pairs the bird with a pretty color combo of scarlet jewel, sweet blush, limeade ice and pinefeather.
To create the perfect perch, I stamped the branch onto a rustic white cardstock block and added a few pinefeather berries.  Then mounted the songbird with a few pieces of dimensional adhesive.
To balance out the heaving image at the top of the card I cut two strips and adhered them to the bottom, along with a stamped sentiment and two matching scarlet jewel buttons.
For the tag, I stamped the bird in scarlet jewel once again.  This time pairing it with pinefeather and rustic white.
The tag was created using a label die (included in a set that you will find out about tomorrow), then topped with a die cut branch and a sentiment (from the new Snow Globe Sentiments).
Another occasion this set is perfect for... a wedding!  I've paired these birds up an a color combo of sweet blush and enchanted evening. 
I stamped the branch twice, to create a perch big enough for two.  A few lines of music were stamped in soft stone and a sentiment in enchanted evening to finish this card off.

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
