More Little Bitty Bird in Winter

Hello blog friends!  Earlier this week I was a creating machine, so hopefully the blog will be all updated this week!  One thing I was working on was making "Winterberry" creations without actually buying the set.  I really like the set but I have so many similar things and honestly I only use Christmas stamps for about 3 months a year.  So I pulled out some similar sets and went to work.  The tree and birds are from Little Bitty Bird.  The berries and sentiment are from Rustic Branches.  The star is from Love Lives Here Holiday (yes I caved last month, but I held strong this month!).  The snowflakes are from Rustic Snowflake.  I drew in the drifts with an American Crafts paint pen and then added white ink with my fingers.  A little copic coloring on the birds and the tree and thats it.  Oh I also used some of the three million yards of bakers twine that I thought would be an awesome purchase last Christmas.  At this rate I will have some for Christmas 2050.

This one is great, too. I don't think you will miss that Winterberry set at all. And, very sophisticated copic coloring, too!

Love how you created the snowdrifts. So original. The contrast of the red birds with the snow is great. The twine is darling. Love the winterberry set, but didn't buy it either. Maybe next year.

Another one that loved winterberry - but already own rustic branches, and little bitty bird and figured I could do a passable version if I combined a few sets.
Beautiful cards
