New from Little Claire - Changing Birdhouse Wedding Stamp


Brand new from Little Claire is the 'Changing Birdhouse Wedding' stamp'which can either be used on its own or with the original 'Changing Birdhouse' stamp set which is here.

This is the original set:


The idea is that this set gives you two different branches as well as a birdhouse base/stand and one birdhouse.  The new sets will have a different birdhouse design in them so you can mix the stamps together to create different designs.

On my card I've used one of the branches from the original set with the wedding birdhouse.  The background paper I've used is from Kanban and the two sentiment stamps are from the Little Claire 'Swirly Birds' stamp set which is here.
