Megan‘s interactive Magic Iris card is so beautiful! Those cheerfully colored birds are from the new Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On and our new Center Picture Window Card Heart Add-On set! She included Little Music Notes and sentiments from Happy Village!

Elise created a beautiful Valentine card with the new Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On and the sweet owl from Special Delivery! I love that she added the baby owl from Mom + Me to complete the cute owl family! I love that the Birdhouse works without the Magic Iris, too!

Kara gave her birdhouse card a decidedly Christmas theme! She used rich colors of cardstock for the Stitched Poinsettia, Large Wreath and Spring Sprig! I love the dusting of snow on the birdhouse and perfect Christmas greeting from Shutter Card Holiday Sayings! Look for a video tutorial for this card coming soon!

Tammy‘s flower decorated birdhouse looks adorable featured on a slimline card! The Special Delivery bird looks right at home! I love how Tammy did a little die cut alteration to change Scripty Sweet to “tweet”; such a clever idea!

I love the rustic look of Audrey‘s adorable birdhouse! She used the Light Brown Woodgrain cardstock and inked the edges, and then splattered the “wood” with dark brown ink to add lots of character! The Wavy Sayings sentiment stamped on a Fancy Wavy Banner is the perfect greeting!

This frosty birdhouse is beautiful in neutral colors with a pop of red from the bird and flowers! Melissa cut the Snowfall Backdrop: Portrait from Blue Jay cardstock for lots of snowy fun! She added a sentiment from Snow Cool to continue the snowy theme!

Grace created a charming pastel Magic Iris card featuring the Birdhouse Add-On! She gave it a stenciled cloud background and a sweet family of birds including the little Say What? Spring Critters baby!

Marine‘s winter themed birdhouse is gorgeous! She decorated with festive dies from Mini Wreath, Stitched Poinsettia, Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On and Spring Sprig! I love how she silver embossed the pretty Joy to the Woods greeting inside the Magic Iris!

Elena‘s sweet little blue bird is so adorable! I love how she colored the “inside” of the birdhouse to show depth! She added a die cut “for you” greeting from the Shutter Card Add-On set!

Renata‘s Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On is so pretty with pastel flowers and the sweet pink bird! I love how she filled the Magic Iris with happy mail from Special Delivery!

Latisha‘s sweet birdhouse is cut from pretty Let It Shine 6×6 paper. This reminds me of lovely folk art designs!

It seems the Let’s Go Nuts squirrels have taken over the birdhouse in Mindy‘s happy scene! She used the Woodgrain Cardstock in Light Brown and Dark Brown to construct her birdhouse. The Stitched Cloud Backdrop and trees from Happy Village set the stage for this fun Magic Iris interactive card!

  1. We have adorable little Robins which like to come right up to the kitchen window. Also a couple of magpies which are striking with their black and white contrast. 🦉

    1. We have several bird feeders and even some birds that build their nests on our trees/plants. It’s so cute seeing the baby birds. We even rescued a blue jay that fell from the nest this past summer.

  2. The robins love to come out after we’ve been digging in the garden. We also have lots of little sparrows and a blackbird with some white feathers in its tail! Loving the DT’s work!

    1. We have a lot of birds around around our backyard as we are close to a field. This summer a blackbird came on the railing of my balcony twice while I was sitting right there. It confused me as they don’t usually come this close. I found out why the next day when a nest appeared on the light of my balcony (it wasn’t there the day before, I had checked). So I had little baby birdies this summer. They were pretty well behaved, I was afraid I’d hear them early in the morning as it’s right next to my bedroom window but it wasn’t a problem.

  3. We are surrounded by pine forest, so we are lucky to have lots of feathered visitors in our garden. The most interesting are the Jays, the Long-tailed Tits and the Swallows. We also have a pair of duck that come every spring to nest on our pond. The duckling are just adorable 🐥

    1. Blue Jays, Robin’s, crows and hummingbirds are around in the summer and early fall. Right now, there are a flock of very small birds with black heads and white underside taking a bath in a puddle.

  4. When it’s not too cold we brush our dog outside and at some point we noticed birds dropping by to pick up her stray hairs for their nests. It’s so adorable seeing the birds with all the fluffy hairs in their beaks

  5. Oh my gosh I LOVE the birdhouse! I never thought I’d want/need a birdhouse die but this is so cute!

    I have seen several barn swallows and northern cardinals in my area as well as other birds of which I do not know the species.

  6. I have several that come to my backyard. I have the humming birds in spring, I inherited some of my mothers numerous humming birds feeders. I always watch them and think of her, it makes me smile! Other times of the year it is blue birds, cardinals, finch’s so many we put out bird seed just so we can watch them!! I adored every card to day, the bird house and all these wonderful birds are so cute. I even like the squirrel one, lol never would have thought about using them in the bird house but I will now!!

  7. We have all kinds of birds in our neighborhood. The robins have left for winter. We have cardinals, sparrows, yellow finches, purple finches, bluejays, chickadees, and nuthatches. I love feeing the birds too!

  8. I love LOVE THESE! I don’t have the magic iris set and this is going to be the set that puts me over the edge to get it! We have a red bellied woodpecker that frequents our bird feeder. It hangs with its tail swung underneath the feeder and boy can it ever scatter the birdseed. It’s very amusing.

  9. Totally adorable and so very cute!! We see a variety of birds in our neighborhood including robins, blue jays, cardinals, woodpeckers, etc.

  10. Mostly we see sparrows around the house, but the occasional cardinal when walking in our neighborhood. The geese are starting to come in for the winter.

  11. That birdhouse is adorable! And I’m so happy you will sell the woodgrain cardstock! The birds that visit us are mainly pigeons and crows, and occasionally a gull. We live above a store, so there aren’t any trees or grass up here, just planters. But sometimes I see a little birdy like a sparrow.

  12. We have a prickly bush in our backyard and a pair of cardinals live in it. We never get to see the babies but we often see both the male and female birds flying about.

  13. We have so many different birds here throughout the year. Oreo, bluejays, cardinals, woodpeckers and many others. I have several birdfeeders right outside the window to my crafting space.

  14. Tweet sweet birdhouse creations. Birds in our area include: Blue jays, Chirping Sparrows (tiny), Falcons, Herons, Mockingbirds, Owls (we have had some late at night and sometimes during day sit on fence),Ravens, Robins in Spring as well as Vultures (circle of life). I have seen nests with eggs, baby birds hatch, grow & fly out of nest.
    “Sunshine HoneyBee”

  15. Oh my goodness so much cuteness, love all of the inspiration projects! I have mostly seagulls, magpies and blackbirds in my area, but blue tits and robins also come to the garden sometimes! And there’s a heron that lives close by, too!

  16. Love the birdhouse! We have hummingbirds, cardinals, crows, owls, sparrows, hawks, blue jays, and many other birds.

  17. Oh, these cards are just adorable! Love all the cutie birds. We have bird feeders and bird baths so we get quite a few birds in our backyard. Blue Jays, Cardinals, Robins, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, Robins, Gold Finches, Junkos, Wrens, Red Finches, Hummingbirds and the occasional Hawk are some of the birds that come and hang out.

  18. We have all kinds of birds! Our house is in the woods and we have a feeder, so we see a lot…wrens, finches, cardinals, titmice, and pine siskins just to name a few.

  19. We have robins that make a nest on the kids’ jungle gym every spring. We love watching the eggs hatch and the little birds grow until they leave the nest.

  20. We see lots of birds! In the summer – we have the cutest hummingbirds – they are so fun to watch! We also have woodpeckers, all kinds of finches, robins, blue jays, and cardinals. I love seeing the cardinals in the winter – so pretty!
    Love this cute birdhouse! And I love the white woodgrain paper 😍

  21. We have a bid feeder out back that attracts so many birds. Recently there have been a bunch of cardinals, but we also see blue jays doves, crows, and killdeer as well as hummingbirds in the summer.

  22. Living at the coastline we have a lot of seagulls, magpies, small sparrows, I don’t know all the names in English… but my absolute favorite is the blackbird! 😀
    And what a terrific idea with the new woodgrain-paper-packages! Looking forward to it!! And the just color the white paper into any color – yay!

  23. Adorable projects wit these cute birdhouses! Love this fun add-on set!
    I have two hummingbird feeders out on my front deck, and I can view them from my living room. We have one hummer that we call Big Boss Man, and he thinks he owns the feeders. He is constantly chasing the other hummers away from his food source!

  24. If ever there was a post calling my name, this is it! I am a bird nerd!! My craft room window looks out at our backyard and bird feeders & bird bath. Right now, we have painted buntings, cardinals, blue jays, mockingbirds, hawks, Eastern phoebe, sparrows, doves & pigeons. And some I just don’t know the name of. lol

  25. We live in The southwestern suburbs of Chicago and get a lot of robins. We are also lucky to have yellow finches and cardinals. They’re all so pretty!!! Holy moly Kara’s poinsettia card is off the charts stunning!

  26. Such cute cards!

    We live in Illinois and have various birds but we have two cardinals who visit us everyday! Such beautiful birds.

  27. Me and my cat like to feed and watch the birds. Most of the time it’s sparrows. There was a Sparrow Hawk and I saw it catch another bird from the sky! It’s was super meet.

    1. we have 2 families of birds, i am not sure what kinds but they are small, living in our washroom fan vents. i keep saying we’ll clean them out and block the birds from entering…but my heart just can’t! i

  28. We have a BIG hawk that has been hanging out in our neighborhood recently so I haven’t seen any other birds. But occasionally I would see a beautiful cardinal couple…male and female. This is a great release. I love the color combo on Marine’s bird house.

  29. So sweet! Elise’s owl card is my favorite!! For the past two years I have had a goldfinch that comes and sits on the windowsill and pecks on the window until I come and see him. He’s gone south for the winter, but I have lots of little woodpeckers and chickadees and a cardinal that still come to our porch. They make me so happy!!

  30. Love this die set. We have lots of doves that hang out in our back yard. Since I live in Arizona they are always hanging out by the pool. I think they think it’s just an overgrown birdbath for them. Actually they are constantly drinking the water. Not sure how tasty that is. Lol

  31. I love everything Magic Iris. We have lots of song birds, such as cardinals, mourning doves, white-wing doves, tufted titmouses, sparrows, mockingbirds, and chickadees. We have hummingbirds. We also have turkeys, vultures and herons. We occasionally see a bald eagle and a few other birds of prey.

  32. The birds that “hang out” around the bird feeders are Cardinals and Robins. It is fun to feed them block oiled sunflower seeds!

  33. Adorable birdhouse add on. This will be a good addition to the magic iris. We have sparrows, chickadees, cardinals and blue jays in our backyard.

  34. I have two bird feeders and a bird bath in my yard, so I see cardinals, blue Jays, mockingbirds, sparrows, wrens, warblers, and others. We also have visits from migratory birds in the winter.

  35. We have a hummingbird that flies around our front door and talks to us when we come out! Then he flies away real quick! He’s very cute, but fast!!! I love this birdouse add on!!!

  36. We are very lucky with the birds we spot in our backyard. We have a cardinal that comes around from time to time. 2 Bluejays that are spotted daily, and even the occasional Hummingbird! Our daughter loves spotting them and learning their names! I love this sweet little birdhouse! Thank you!

  37. The birds in my yard start with my chickens… wish there were more stamp sets with chickens🤗 I also have Cardinals and Blue Jays, an occasional treat is the Roadrunner that speeds through our yard!

  38. We have a woodpecker that loves to sit up in the telephone pole and drill all day and if he’s not there it’s a big black crow up there doing a car alarm.

  39. I love this birdhouse! We have 4 birdhouses, and 10 feeders in our yard, so we get a variety of birds visiting. Blue jays, Cardinals, chickadees, woodpeckers, etc.

  40. This birdhouse is so super cute! Besides cards, I would love to use this die set in my scrapbooks! We actually have about 15 parrots that live in our area that I have taken pictures of. They fly over house at 7am and 7pm in the spring and summer! They’re beautiful and loud!

  41. Holy moly, these cards are adorable! And I love Chari’s cards in the video, and she finally convinced me to get the Magic Iris; I can’t hold out on it any longer! We have bird feeders on our porch and love feeding and watching the birds, and one of the kinds we focus on are the HUMMINGBIRDS! They are fun and hysterical to watch!

  42. Amazing creations! Such a versatile dies set! We have so many birds on our 11 acres from wild turkeys & pigeons to robins, blue jays, owls & even eagles.

  43. This year we put out a finch feeder so we had lots of goldfinches and others. We also get lots of cardinals, some blue jays. Then there’s the usual – sparrows, robins.

  44. Love the birdcage. We live in a apartment 10 high. My husband build a cage for our cats so they can go save outside. But it’s very strange we can’t find out how it’s possible but already a few times there where birds inside. Our cats loved it, but we release the birds soon as possible would think about that I could go wrong. Now we always check before we let the cats out.

  45. I live in Maryland, and we have a ton of beautiful birds in our yard. Some of my favorites are the cardinals and the blue birds.

  46. These birdhouses that the design team made are stunning! I’m not sure what they’re called, but we have a family of beautiful black and almost fluorescent yellow birds that live in one of our trees.

  47. I love birds and thus birdhouse set is amazing as are all the Design Team’s samples. I love everyone’s different birds and settings, well done! Lately, here in central Alberta we have an owl in our neighborhood, I love to hear the sounds it makes.

  48. ohh i’m so excited for this!! we don’t have a whole lot of birds in the neighbourhood because there’s lots of cats so they usually stay away but my grandparents have lots of sparrows around! x

  49. I live in the city so we don’t see too many birds other than crows, pigeons, magpies and sparrows. We occasionally see Canadian Geese, ducks, and robins. Thanks for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

  50. Daddy sends Cardinals (Male and female) from heaven, they’re so beautiful against the Michigan snow. Lots of chickadees with sparrows, crows and a few Bluebirds. There is a falcon, hawk, owl and red tail something swooping by periodically. Finches, hummingbirds and Robin’s in the spring and woodpeckers in the distance. This summer we watched a baby bald eagle flying up pretty high getting bigger and bigger…. they all are fun, but that eagle whew quite a treat!! Because of the hawks I dont put up houses, but we sure go through the food. Sweet sweet die set.

  51. There are hawks and hummingbirds. The hawks are quite brutal and feed off the poor pigeons. I have a tall rose bush on my patio and a hummingbird made her nest in it. It was pure magic to watch her build it. Then when her babies hatched I got to watch the whole process since the rose bush is outside my glass sliding door and I can watch without bothering them. Then we also have typical crows, pigeons, and other small birds.

  52. During the summer we have robins and hummingbirds.
    Little sparrows are around all the time. Really miss
    the blue jays – they have disappeared. Love the
    view into the birdhouse. thanks for sharing

  53. My favorite sightings are woodpeckers, hummingbirds and blue cardinals. But the ones I see most often are crows 🙁

  54. We have a hummingbird that lives in our yard every summer. I love sitting in the hot tub and he’s flying around the flowers.

  55. I always watch for the robins and hummingbirds in spring! This bird house is so sweet – love the ideas presented here.

  56. Love this birdhouse! We see cardinals and chickadee’s quite a bit and the occasional woodpecker. When spring comes we will see robins and hummingbirds.

  57. We have so many birds even in MN we feed them all year long. We have chickadee’s that stay all year and so do sparrows and cardinals. Then in the summer there are many different kinds including hummingbirds. Love them all

  58. I live in the country and I have bird feeders. We get lots of gold finches, purple finches, house finches, sparrows, nuthatches, tohees, juncos, mourning doves, Cali quail, hawks, crows, and once even a golden eagle. And hummingbirds, too!

  59. This is so cute! I can’t wait to add it to my collection. We have a family of blue jays and a pretty cardinal couple that live in our trees in addition to tons of doves and finches. We love to sit and watch our bird baths and feeders to see them.

  60. This is a wonderful addition to the magic iris set! We have finches, robins, killdeers, and occasionally bluebirds and even hummingbirds. They are fun to watch!

  61. The squirrels and owls are especially cute in their houses. We have: western bluebirds, finches, sparrows, parrots, phoebes, crows, ravens, hawks and other preditors, and some others that I can’t think o. I LOVE bird 🙂

  62. We have alot of different birds in our neighborhood!! My favorites are the cardinals!!! I Adore this birdhouse!!!!

  66. I enjoy seeing the cardinals, finches, hummingbirds, robins, doves, woodpeckers, and an occasional blue jay in our yard. Love the magic iris birdhouse add-on.

  67. Living on he gulf coast of Florida and near water we see ibis, ducks, anhingas, herons and osprey, as well as little migrating birds at this time of year. Absolutely LOVE the bird house and all the creative ideas!

  68. I love the sounds of bird coming in the window. It is so soothing. Love these great ideas. Can’t wait to see the entire collection.

  69. The card examples are so cute! Right now we have suet feeders in some of our many trees and love to watch the brave little birds that stay all year – sparrows, chickadees, downy woodpeckers, flickers, and sometimes magpies. We also have seen mourning doves and blue jays. In the spring the robins come back to nest and we have meadowlarks close by. Later in the summer the hummingbirds make an appearance.

  70. We have a lot of starlings in our garden but also have a pair of blackbirds and magpies, which come to our bird table everyday, a little Robin and several Great Tits and Blue Tits. The sparrows are there in abundance in the spring/summer, but have moved on now to warmer climes! I just love the birdhouse, can’t wait to get hold of it!

  73. We have starlings, jays, flickers and hummingbirds. I saw an owl in my backyard once, too! I also saw a cool bird on my deck attacking pine cones to get the seeds a couple of years in a row….it was really big and gray. We looked it up…I think it was a Clarke’s Nuthatch or something.

  74. I absolutely adore the palette on Megan’s card, they are all just delightful. We have many birds (most of which I’m unable to identify correctly) and we do frequently have parakeets in our fruit trees.

  75. Soooo many darling bird creations!!!! Love the add-on! We have a lot of cardinals and robins in our neighborhood!

  76. We have two cardinals we see from time to time. I like to believe one is my sister and one is my Pap visiting me from Heaven.

  77. I don’t know which kind of birds are around in my neighborhood, but they wake up way before me and are rather loud. They probably would like such a cute birdhouse, maybe they would sleep longer too?

  78. We have a lot of sparrows hanging around the neighborhood and my cat loves to watch them all :-D. Since she is just observing the birds don’t mind her presence

  79. We used to have a family of blue jays that would come to my yard every morning in the warmer months but my neighbor started feeding the squirrels and there went the jays…sigh.

  80. We have tons of different kinds of birds. Lots of retired people who like to keep up elaborate gardens in our area draw them in with different plants and trees.

  81. We fill the bird feeders every morning…they squawk at us when we’re late, the cardinals are a bright flash of red against all our snow.

  82. We have lots of bright yellow with black chickadee’s. They are so cute as well as Doves who sit patiently under the bird feeder for the chickadee’s to knock stuff down to them.

  83. We are so blessed we live in the North Ga Mountains so we have an amazing group of visitors coming and going spring and fall. Then all summer the locals are Mountain Bluebirds, Blue Jay, Cardinals, Golden Finch, Nutthatchers, Tit Mouse, Woodpeckers 2 types, Bald, and Golden eagles, Red Hawks, Hummingbirds and many more!!

  84. We have tons of Roadrunners and Quail in our neighborhood. I love to see a flock of Quail all walking together with those adorable little plumes bobbing around on the top of their heads (so cute) and the Roadrunner just forces me to say “Meep-Meep” every time I see one. I can’t wait to get this birdhouse. I love all of the projects they Design Team did with it. 🙂

  85. I live in Alberta, Canada and for the first time this year, I had a Baltimore Oriole at my feeders! Was very neat to see!

  86. usually finches, cardinals, blue jays. I have a woodpecker that has pecked a hole in my porch post and we’ve even had a wild turkey strut by. I live in the suburbs. LOL!

  87. I have robins and cardinals on a regular basis, but this year I also had bluebirds that nested in my bluebird house!

  88. As an avid ornithologist, I love the birds and bird house. My backyard is a bird sanctuary. Can’t wait to use the dies.

  89. We have cardinal families! Mom, Dad and babies hang out in our yard! Plus robins, wrens, sparrows sometimes a blue heron. The blue heron hangs out by our fish pond, hmmm wonder why?

  90. This birdhouse is fantastic! I have a sweet spot in my heart for birds. This time of year we have cardinals, chickadees, and sometimes a woodpecker. In the summer I enjoy seeing the hummingbirds around their feeder and mourning doves that like to nest on my porch or even in the wreath on my front door!

  91. I have 2 bird feeders and also a hummingbird feeder set up. I get a lot of juncos and chickadees this time of year. I also feed my hummingbird all winter and change the feeder for him if it freezes.

  92. Oddly, we don’t get many birds in our neighborhood. A few small maybe swallows (?) maybe? We don’t even really see pigeons. Never really thought about that before! Big City living!

  93. We have a lot of songbirds that come to our yard. There’s a pair of cardinals that come and see if we put out any sunflower seeds or suet. This year we had a pair of hawks that would hang out on the telephone poles watching for “dinner”. Our puppy was still small this summer, so we always took her out on a leash when they were around. I couldn’t see them well enough to identify, but I think they were Cooper’s Hawks. Red Tailed Hawks are the most common in our area and I have seen them, but not in our backyard.

  94. Love this die set! I have seen lots of Blue Jays this year! I love feeding the birds in the neighborhood and my favorites are the Cardinals and finches!

  95. We have a mockingbird or something that lives around us. It makes sounds everywhere between a car alarm to a hawk.

  96. Beautiful cards, all of them!
    In our yard there are lots of blackbirds and some other birds to, but I don’t know all the names. I love watching them being busy.

  97. Love all the cute birdhouse ideas!! So beautiful!! We have 2 starlings in our backyard who come around every year we named them Bob, and Joe-Bob. They made a nest in our bbq and just don’t have the heart to take it out!!

  98. We get a lot of blackbirds in our neighborhood. My kitties love bird watching. They chirp whenever they spot one and I got to see a cardinal!! It was pretty exciting.

  99. We have robins but my favorite birds here are the two cardinals that play tag
    around our house. Then one seems to always be in the tree right outside,
    my window in my office/craft room at least once a day. We have lots of birds in
    the trees and bamboo around our house. Love listening to them

  100. I love the cards! They are all so very sweet. In my back yard I have cardinals, finches and one very noisy woodpecker.

  101. Such cute cards! We have a bunch of birds in our neighbourhood – but my favourite is the red Cardinal and the Bluejay.

  102. We have many different birds here: goldfinches, downy woodpeckers, bluejays, dark-eyed juncos, flickers, mourning doves, house wrens, and so many more. Plenty of inspiration to color the birds in the adorable birdhouse set. I love all of the design teams ideas too!

  103. Our old neighborhood had hummingbirds which I really miss because they are my favorite! Yesterday a tiny bird jumped on the window sill next to our kitchen table while I was sitting there… just a couple inches from me! So cute! I guess I’m a big fan of very small birds.

  104. I am BLOWN AWAY by all those cute bird houses! My husband and I watch and report to the Audubon on nesting eagles in our area (we watch over a dozen nests). But, this week I saw 40+ robins in my yard, bathing in our sprinklers. They must be moving south for the winter! (I live in Central Florida)

  105. Around here, I see ducks at a local pond, bluejays, cardinals, and mockingbirds. I love the Birdhouse Add-on! I will definitely have to get it.

  106. Great New Release. My office/craft room looks right outside and I’ve seen a multiple of different birds outside. I live in a condo, a sweet mama bird build a nest on the wood on the condo deck above, so I saw her in action making the nest and then the chirping of the little ones.

  107. This birdhouse is so adorable! We have so many different types of birds… cardinal, bluebird, bluejay, gold finch, chickadee, scarlet tanager, Carolina wren, etc. We love our birds ☺

  108. We just put up a bird feeder and have seen all kinds of birds here. We have finches, love birds, cardinals, 2 types of doves, and the occasional green white-eyes.

  109. Beautiful birdhouse and durable birds! So the birds that hang out in my backyard are quail, doves, roadrunners and occasionally we see a red cardinal.

  110. I love this little birdhouse, what a great addition. We have some pretty great birds around here. Cardinals and Golden Finches to name a couple.

  111. We have a bamboo wind chime on the eave of our porch & there is always a bird that nests in there! They don’t seem to mind humans!

  113. I love the cards with the birdhouse. I have several birdfeeders and enjoy watching bird antics. I especially enjoyed the Owl You Need is Love and Audrey’s card.
    Holiday blessings to you all –

  114. Oh Goodness…what awesome inspriation.
    We have downey woodpeckers, nuthatches, Chickadees, wrens, Pilated woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays and much more.

  115. Love how versatile the magic iris set is! We have doves, blue jays and now huge black crows picking at our leftover fruit!

  116. I am in San Antonio and we have Bluejays, crows, hummingbirds, parrots, and beautiful Cardinals. I love the Cardinals, but they eat my succulents.

    Down in the Texas Valley, there are Greenjays. They are identical to Bluejays, but are green. So beautiful! 💜

  117. We have so many different birds…robins, sparrows, cardinals, blue jays, a woodpecker and lots of ducks and geese. There is a single white duck who my granddaughter calls Daisy (Minnie Mouse’s bestie).

  118. So many cute and creative takes on birds and birdhouses! We have lots of wonderful birds coming to our feeders in the backyard. Such fun to watch them.

  119. Lots of birds! Visiting our feeders today: Anna’s hummingbirds, chickadees, scrub jays, stellar jays, bush tits, house sparrows, Oregon juncos, flicker, red-breasted nuthatches, house finch, downy woodpeckers, mourning doves and rufous sided towhees.

  120. This birdhouse add-on looks fabulous. I am excited about the fact that it can be used both with the magic iris dies & also on its own to create beautiful cards. Love the winter themed card by Marine. The colors look so soothing & perfect for Christmas.

  121. There’s a lake behind my back garden where a large flock of Canadian Geese live. Beautiful to look at but noisy as neighbours. Great inspiration

  122. I love Kara’s Xmas card, and Mindy’s card is so cute with the squirrels! I get cardinals, blue jays, robins, sparrows, chickadees, nuthatches, tufted titmice, mourning doves, woodpeckers, and flickers mostly, plus the occasional hawks and hummingbirds. Every now and again I can hear an owl hooting in the woods behind my yard at night. There’s also a large flock of ducks because of the river running through our neighborhood, so they’re in the backyard everyday also. Last summer we had some vultures stop by to feast on the carcass of a large opossum that had been hit by a car. I hadn’t really realized just how big vultures are until I saw them circling around and sitting in the trees out back!

  123. Lots of seagulls and pelicans here, I live ten houses away from the Atlantic Ocean, but also have woodpeckers that have made a hole in the top of the phone pole in my backyard. Love all the new stuff!!

  124. I LOVE this die set!!!! Wow! I love birds and bird houses. We have a lot of different types of birds in my neighborhood. I definitely need to learn more about birds to be able to identify all of them – but the ones that make me most happy and that I see a lot are hummingbirds! We have several varieties of them, and my favorite is the Rufus. They have a certain sound when they fly and just sparkle with golds and copper colorings. Absolutely beautiful!

  125. Be still my heart! 😊 I love these! We have a bird feeder in our yard but it’s mostly just to entertain our cats. 😄

  126. we have lots of little chickadees (i think that’s what they are) and a Mr & Mrs Cardinal that hang out. They are fun to watch! Love these bird house dies and all the creative ideas!

  127. Awwww, the magic iris add-on birdhouse is sooooo sweet! Love all the magical projects- the DT hit it out of the ballpark!

  128. Because we have a cat that loves to watch the birds, we have three bird feeders in our backyard. Yesterday there were 22 birds (plus 2 squirrels) eating a nice meal.

  129. This little birdhouse is so tweet. I haven’t got a magic iris die but I love the way your DT has used it in so many different ways, truly inspired

  130. Ok, I’m now convinced to order the Magic Iris when I buy from the Valentine’s sets! In our yard, we have swallows, doves, cardinals, bluebirds…and there is always the sweet harmony of them singing high in the trees while our dogs bark up at them from below. 😉

  131. Lots of robins, mourning doves and sometimes I catch a glimpse of a red cardinal. So far loving this new release!💕

  132. My wish list just keeps getting longer and longer. I am going to have to find a job just so that I can afford all the stamps and dies I would like to have.

  133. Design team cards so fabulous and Beautiful, that makes me want Everything!! Good job! Love it a’ll! ♡♡♡♡

  134. Oh my gosh that birdhouse is the absolute cutest! I love how it can work with or without the magic iris die.
    We have lots of robins and the occasional blue jay and cardinal in our backyard.

  135. We have owls, hawks, vultures, falcons, quail, roadrunners and lots of smaller birds that visit my garden. I am delighted with the variety of birds I see each day.

    Thank you for these adorable designs.

    1. OOOps, just read the fine print – I love the cardinals and the cute little chickadees that I see at our feeders. The cardinals come in pairs at this time of year, and sometimes there are 6 pairs at a time! The chickadees in their tuxedo colors always bring a smile to my face!

  136. At this time of year I see a lot of cardinals and chickadees, with an occasional hawk on the lookout for a careless bunny (and sometimes perched in our big old maple tree in the front yard.)

  137. We like to feed the birds! Lots of hawks, geese, mallards, different finches, cardinals, sparrows, woodpeckers, and an owl!

    I could see making this set as a cuckcoo click!

  138. I love this set … I love how it works on its own without the magic iris too.
    I am currently in Australia where it is summer so I have beautiful parrots, magpies, cockatoos and kookaburras all around me

  139. I love watching birds. In my backyard, I have seen chickadees, tufted titmice, cardinals, a downy woodpecker, juncos, sparrows, wrens, and robins.

  140. We have finches, bluejays, black birds, sparrows and sometimes seagulls. Love the new add-on…very cute! Thanks for sharing.

  141. We love watching the cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, finches, etc. at the bird feeder (along with the squirrels!). Love the bird house.

  142. I love all the magic iris products. As for birds…you’d think I lived in a bird sanctuary if you sat on my back patio, way too many to name, for sure.

  143. What an adorable addition to the magic iris family. I feed the birds daily and have quite a variety. I love to see the cardinals and grosbeak.

  144. Such adorable card’s love the new additions that y’all are adding, I have a lot of owls that sit around at night by my house I can hear them all night

  145. I think these birdhouses are so super cute! I see lots of ravens, blue jays, Canada jays, woodpeckers, and chickadees!

  146. The most populous bird around these parts (San Jose) seems to be the crow. We also have many finches and hummingbirds this year at our feeder, along with morning doves. I really miss our neighborhood mockingbird – such a reportoire! I also see a lot of geese and ducks in our local waterways. Once in a great while I’ll see a blue jay, or hear a woodpecker of some kind. But those crows!

  147. I have been seeing a lot of cute pale-billed flowerpeckers near my house and also bulbuls and then recently I saw few racket-tailed drongo and black dorngos.
    This is such a cute and fun die, love the cards from the team…

  148. We get a lot of hummingbirds at my feeders. I love watching them. They will fly right by my head. I even got pics of one sleeping. Took a quick nap hanging upside down like a bat.

  149. So many birds!!! Well it probably doesn’t hurt that I feed them all sorts of treats! This summer we had a bluebird family! A male, female and 4 babies! We got to watch the parents feed mealworms to the babies. It was quite special! We have 2 kinds of woodpeckers, brown thrashers, cardinals, blue jays, tufted titmouse, gold finches, sparrows, a scarlet tanager that was flying through! And several different types of hummingbirds. Too many other birds to name! We also enjoy watching the squirrels and chipmunks. Oh and this year we were lucky to be visited by two different skunks! That was really cool!

  150. 🐦 My condo is half underground, so the windows are right at ground level.
    This is the perfect placement as the birds are literally right outside my window! We entice them in the winter by throwing out some “Critter Crunch” for them. 🐦
    It brings such a smile to my face and warms my heart when in the morning I open my curtains and see the doves 🕊 grabing a snack. 😃

  151. I love birds! We get sparrows, mourning doves, crows, cardinals, black-cap chickadees, woodpeckers, blue jays, and robins, plus hawks!

  152. LOVE all the projects from the designers! I live on the edge of town so we have some unusual birds around here including gorgeous bluejays and loud woodpeckers. Thank you for the chance to win!!

  153. In the PNW we have Stellar’s jays. They are dark blue and black (no white) and very noisy! We also have lots of robins, woodpeckers, and bald eagles. Elise’s owl card convinced me I need to start making birdhouse cards asap.

  154. Really neat and cool card’s, I use to hear and feed the bird’s all the time in my neighborhood but since it’s cold I don’t hear or see them anymore

  155. Fabulous projects from the design team–I love the birdhouse die and all of the creative possibilities! We get cardinals, wrens, eastern bluebirds, chickadees and robins in our neighborhood.

  156. I’m loving this bird house and icing on the cake is that it’s magic iris add on. So it’s gonna be so much fun. Can’t wait to get my hands on this die.

  157. I really adore this one!! So cute! We have mostly Finches, bur I see a lot of Bald Eagles and Red Tail Hawks too.

  158. I can tell you about the birds that hang out in our trees! We call our trees the bird condo because we have flocks of different bird families living in our trees. They always make a huge ruckus in the morning hours so they are no longer cute to us,

  159. Love all these makes! We have robins and blue jays, on occasion hummingbirds, but most of the time I see crows and turkey vultures.

  160. The Birdhouse Add-on is fabulous as is all the inspiration samples! We have a variety of birds visiting our feeders, everything from hummingbirds to chickadees to towhees and more.

  161. These cards are lovely. Especially the one Megan created.

    I kid you not, my apartment is on the 8th floor and I have green parrots chirping out loud on my window sil every morning that wakes me up. When I craft, I have pigeons, sparrows and mynas visiting me. I put out a little bowl for them to snack with me while I am Crafting ☺️☺️☺️

  162. What a fun new die! Amazing creations from the designers! We have many types of birds in our backyard. There are hummingbirds, doves, crows, parakeets, woodpeckers and lots of chickadees.

  163. we have 2 families of birds, i am not sure what kinds but they are small, living in our washroom fan vents. i keep saying we’ll clean them out and block the birds from entering…but my heart just can’t! i

  164. We have all kinds of birds in our garden and I live them all, big or small. Since a year we have tiny white birds – that I don’t know the english name for – that have never been there before. But now they come, about 10 of them together, around von each day and they are so much fun to watch.

  165. Wow wow wow! This die cut set is incredible!! I have some birds that come to my path cause I usually put some old bread outside for them!

  166. It is SO WONDERFUL to see so many creative and and colorful ideas for this amazing new birdhouse set! I love every single bit of inspiration from the talented team! This set is a definite must-have for my stash!
    Warm Hugs!

  167. I have many sparrows that come to eat the black oiled sunflower seeds, but I also have cardinals and robins.

  168. Lots of cardinals and robins in our yard and every so often a woodpecker who likes our tin chimney cap–lovely noise to wake up to!

  169. The birds in my backyard are always a daily Joy. We have American yellow finch, red house finch, Blue Jays, hummingbirds, white crowned Sparrows ,mourning doves, mockingbirds, Robbins, and this summer we had some Orioles. Our newest visitor is a black Phoebe.

  170. birds hold a very special place in my 🤍 . i’m always trying to help them whatever the season. they know it, they’re about a hundred coming to my garden for food and drink. mostly sparrows but also doves, chikadees, 1 robin, 2 magpies, starlings, jackdaws, 1 little owl, warblers, 3 hoopoes, and sometimes goldfinches and chaffinches.

  171. We have so many birds that come to our feeders we have at the edge of our property line. I’m especially taken back when I see a cardinal come visit as that reminds of my Grandma who passed away.

  172. We have lots of birds here in S. Texas. I love the cardinals, the mockingbirds, and the hawks. I love the DT samples today, all of them! Thank you.

  173. This die is for the birds…..all the birds! Love it!!
    We have Blue Jays that are the most beautiful color of blue that seem to be everywhere! Finches, robins, cardinals, morning doves, blue birds, hummingbirds, even a Peregrine falcon hanging out in the trees that surround our house!

  174. I love this! I just moved and this would be cute to use to notify people. The birds at my house are something out of the Alfred Hitchcock movie. I came home to find a very hurt bird, thought perhaps a cat had gotten it, BUT my Ring Doorbell video showed it was ANOTHER bird! Poor bird.

  175. Love this Birdhouse add on!!
    We have big hawks that circle around our neighborhood but my hav is the little hummingbirds that are always hanging out in our backyard!

  176. I’m such a bird nerd! Love this! I have cardinals, eastern bluebirds, Carolina wrens, titmouse,chickadees, nuthatches and so many more.

  177. We have Robins, Finches, Bluejays, etc. Every year we have a Robin that builds a nest in our patio cover. We get to watch the nest construction and the baby birds hatch. This year she had 2 clutches of baby birds!

  178. We have the typical birds around here like cardinals, blue jays, robins and every so often we will spot a woodpecker.

  179. I think that the birds that hang out in my neighborhood are sparrows.
    Sometimes I hear them talking to my budgie, it’s very funny.
    I find it super relaxing to hear the birds singing.
    This birdhouse is so cute!!!

  180. I am not much of a bird watched so I probably haven’t observed as many kinds as there except for the cardinals and orioles since there are so many.

  181. Lots of scrub jays and black phoebes! Still waiting for my roving bevy of quail that tend to come through the yard at some point…

  182. We have many birds that hang out in my back yard from Hawks and Owls to blue jays, sparrows, hummingbirds, swallows, pigeons and many other birds that I don’t know the names of LOL

  183. We have this blue bird that hops around. It is so pretty! I don’t know what type of bird it is though. Love this bird house and can’t wait to use it.

  184. These are adorable!!! I’m going to be divorced and broke before this is all said and done lol. I just love how easy your sets are and how many different things you can do.

  185. These projects are all SO amazing!!! Fabulous work everyone!

    In our neighborhood we have quite a few feisty blue jays!

  186. We have sparrows and I think it’s called a Robin (?) in English. We call it Roodborstje in Dutch in our garden. I love seeing the birds in our garden so it would be so much fun to make a birdhouse card especially with the magic iris add-on.

  187. I love these interactive cards and this one is adorable….who am I kidding? Lol… everything you do is adorable!

  188. We have so many birds around our place!!! Owls, Sparrows, Stellar Jays, Woodpeckers, Chickadees, Morning Doves, Egrets, Ducks, Hummingbirds and probably more 😀 I love watching our back yard some days because they’re all back there at once! The uber brave ones go after our dogs food at the back door if she’s not outside!

    I love that you’ve added another piece more the Magic Iris!!! My favorite die right now <3

  189. Oh my! I Love the Magic Iris Birdhouse Add on! It is the top of my list!! I simply love birds and the freedom that comes with them. At my house I always have a Willie Wagtail, Rainbow Lorikeet or Kookaburra in my garden.

  190. I love ❤️, love 💕, love 💗 the magic iris birdhouse add on. Sooo adorable and so many ways to use it! The possibilities are endless!!!!
    Happy Holidays!🎄🎄🎄

  191. That’s funny…this morning out on the playground my little kids and I noticed a TON of birds sitting in one of the trees. I don’t know what kind they were but they were little and there were a LOT of them. The DT outdid themselves with their makes today…WOW!

  192. Love all the samples with the Iris Window Birdhouse. They are are so cute. We have crows and sparrows flying around the neighborhood.

  193. I am so excited for the new birdhouse element to go with the magic iris. I would simply love to make a Christmas inspired house with this as it would be so cute.☺️

  194. We get a couple of hummers in the summer and all kinds of birds year round, especially when we put the feeder out in the winter 🙂

  195. This year, in Ohio, I’ve seen a lot of cardinals, grosbeaks, red tailed hawks, chickadees, finches, a rainbow bird, and doves! These are just a handful! I love birdwatching and your little birdhouse is adorable! ❤️

  197. We have lots of birds from Blue Jays to Cardinals and everything in between. We even seen an indigo blue a couple of times.

  198. We have chickadees, juncos, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers and doves. It helps that we live next to a forest! I love the birdhouse cards, they are so fun!

  199. We have lots of galahs at the moment. I love what everyone has done with the new birdhouse die – the cards are adorable!

  200. I live in London and because of escaped pets (probably) long ago there’s green parrots (Indian ring-necked parakeets) living in the parks that have learned how to survive in the colder climate and it’s always fascinating to see them flying between the trees in our local park.

  201. I have an array of beautiful birds in my backyard during the year… sometimes woodpeckers… once saw 2 pairs flying together at the same time! I love Goldfinches and have feeders for them during the summer; Hummingbirds; Guess my favorites would be the beautiful cardinals during the winter months. They are so gorgeous after a snowfall!

  202. I have various kinds of birds at my feeders filled with black oiled sunflower seeds. The sparrows are the most common, but I also attract cardinals and robins.

  203. The birds at my house have a delightful time until the dogs go outside and chase them! I have robins, cardinals, sparrows, and blue birds!

  204. This bird house is so versatile! I’m not sure about all the kinds of birds that hang around my neighbourhood, but there’s definitely Canadian Geese among them. Not now though, as we’re currently in winter!

  205. Love the sweet little humming birds that buzz down to get water from the fountain in our yard. I can watch them for hours.

  206. Hahaha, loving all these adorable birdies! We keep 2 feeders year-round in our yard plus the hummingbird feeder. In Washington, we have Anna’s Hummingbirds which are year round. I get so worried about them when it’s cold but they show up everyday and eat so I know they are well. We also have a family of Northern Flickers, some Steller’s Jays, and most recently we’ve been seeing a few gold finches!

  207. We have a number of different birds that are around our house…some I know and some I don’t. Lately a bluejay keeps coming on our porch and looking in through the door, it’s cute.

  208. We have lots of Magpies in our neighbourhood. Usually they are quiet friendly but can be a little vicious in spring during swooping season!

  209. I’m in love! The Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-on is SO adorable! I haven’t got the Magic Iris (yet), but I will definitely be getting this cute little birdhouse.
    We have sparrows, robins, magpies and many more.

  210. Oh wow! What a fabulous new set!!! We have a variety of birds in the neighborhood but the one that stands out is a particularly boisterous cardinal who enjoys singing his little heart out in the tree just outside our window.

  211. I’m not too familiar with birds. but do know that we have robins that build a nest under our deck every year!

  212. During winter we usually get Towhees and Scrub Jays at our feeder. We also have a “murder of crows” that visit the neighborhood and occasionally we will spot flickers pecking on the trees.

  213. Oh my this is such an adorable addition to the Lawn Fawn dies! I think I keep saying that but y’all really come up with some super cute additions! 🙂
    At my house we have a lot of bluejays and cardinals. Also there used to be a woodpecker and when we first moved here, he/she would peck at the facia on the window on the outside of the house, right by my side of the bed at like 5 am looking for his breakfast! Thank goodness he finally realized there was no joy in there and he moved onto the trees in the front yard!!!!

  214. Our “birds” are a bit non traditional. We have a bird feeder we fill with bird food and about 9 different deer, elk, squirrels and birds cone eat out of it

  215. Just a heads up; the leave a comment button brings you to the top of this post, not the comments.

    I hope this goes through.

    I live in a basement apartment do I don’t see many birds, but I often hear the Canadian geese as the fly by.

  216. We have lots of birds in our back garden. Bluetits nest in our bird box and robins, blackbirds and pigeons nest in our hedge.

  222. My house has a greenbelt behind it so we have all kinds of birds. We’ve got the usual finches and nuthatches, but also some beautiful hummingbirds, bluejays and a couple of species of woodpecker.

  223. I’m not sure what type of bird it is, but there is one that I hear outside our living room window all. the. time. that loves to scream.

  224. I have everything from morning doves, condors, pheasants, turkeys, peach birds, and owls. We have a few owls in our neighbors trees and can hear them often at night. So fun!
