I have a few thank you cards I need to make and just before I went on my vacation we were talking in my stamp group about adding tack it over glue from Allene on the back of our stamps that don't have any type of sticky on the back to adhere to our blocks. I was given a few stamps from another friend in the group when she was cleaning out before her big move and I hadn't used them yet since they wouldn't stick to my blocks, so I decided to clean them up and add some tack it over to them and this birdhouse stamp was the first I tried out and so far it worked perfectly, I don't know how they will hold up over time but I will get a few uses out of them at least for now :)
I left it on my desk and when I got back and was starting my thank you cards I saw it sitting on my desk and decided to use it in one of my cards, I decided to go with making a scene for it, using my embossing folder which I colored with markers also, then added some grass and sky. Now what to hang it with? I went with drawing a chain and then popping it up, to give it a little dimension.
Birdhouse stamp unknown, colored w/markers
