From our Nest...and a Spring Card too!

Happy Thursday!
Jillian's' virtual events are over for the year, but I was thinking so what did we use, that MANY people already have and how can I show them a new idea with those products!
So I came up with this darling Winter Birdie (aka Spring Birdie) Slimline Card!
We had SO MUCH fun this year doing the Virtual Events in two Groups.
Most of the die cuts on this card, are from items that came in the bundles!
So grab your supplies and make one for yourself!  Don't forget to check out the Spring one further on down the post!

I wanted to add a little bling to the snow drifts and the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse roof and bottom trim so I used Elizabeth Crafts adhesive and their wonderful Silk Fine Glitter in Cool Diamond I also used their True Red Silk Fine Glitter for the bow!
The snow drifts and roof trim on the birdhouse is from the Sweet Gingerbread Add On that coordinates with the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse.
The Bow, Poinsettia and Pine are all from the Classic Candle Die Set and I used the Petal Pusher and Shape Up Mat Combo to shape the poinsettia.
Spring Birdie in Red makes a great red cardinal for Winter and the Sentiment Strips in the Slimline Essentials are perfect for the sentiments from the New Nest Stamp Set
I also used a Sentiment Strip for the post and embossed it using our INKBoss INKpression Plate. 
Topped it off with Snowflakes from A Cool Friend Coordinating Die Set.
I think it makes a darling winter slimline card with items that most of our Virtual Event people already own!

A Jillian Vance Design products used: for the Spring one!
This one I was inspired by one that a Lawn Fawn designer did.
Jillian has always said, if I didn't have a company, Lawn Fawn would fill the craft room!
This is another variation of the winter card, only using the Mini Spring Mix Die Set that is BRAND NEW!!!

The Clouds are from the Peace, Love & Rainbows Slimline Circle Window Cover Plate and are covered in Elizabeth Crafts Silk Glitter in Cool Diamond.
The grass tufts are from the Hootie the Owl Spring Add On Set, it is adorable and makes Hootie into a Bunny or a Flower!
The Lady Bug is in the Mini Spring Mix Die Set as well.
I also used a Sentiment Strip for the post and embossed it using our INKBoss INKpression Plate for this one too!
How fun would a FALL one be with a Black Bird!!!
