Birds at Twofer!


It’s coming down to the wire, but I finally have two cards ready for the Twofer Challenge. The theme this month is Birds.  However, that is one stamp I don’t have a “flock” of. Yes, I went there!  LOL Over the long weekend as I was pondering this dilemma, I remembered I had a Verve set with a bird in it that I could use. Score! Love when things fall into place.

Here are a few details…For the white card; I used some MFT floral stamps and dies, sentiment is from Darcies, and a piece of vellum to soften the center of the card. I doubled my scallop die underneath my SU stitched circle, Finally, I added a side bow, as I felt like it needed something more. For the floral card; I used a beautiful piece of DSP (that I have been saving from Kaiser), I lightly inked and paper pieced my little bird, flowers/dies are also MFT, the branch is from SU, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I cut a hole in the DSP, cause in the pic it appears the blue piece is on top.  That fun stitched rounded corners die is from MFT.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.  I very much appreciate your visits! Nanc’

  1. So cute is that bird and I love the way you used it on your Twofers.

  2. If you only own one bird, you sure picked a darling little bird to own, Nanc! I love where you took her with your two lovely designs! You even created your own DSP for your first bird-day card and I love the interest you achieved with the added vellum, and how the pretty ribbon ties it all together! The Kaiser paper on your second card really is amazing and I love the beautiful floral branch and how you’ve colored your bird so elegantly! There is a ton of movement in this design! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #12! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Glad you found that cute bird to use on both of your lovely cards. Great way to make the background paper using the bird stamp on the first card. Love the pattern paper on the second card and the branch of flowers you place the cute bird on. ((Hugs)), JoAnn

  4. Nancy, love your sweet little spring birdies, so much fun and whimsy in your design for both cards. The flowering branches are perfect for perching on. Both cards brought a smile. Beautifully done!

  5. Two too tweet!! Beautiful designs Nanc’ and your patterned paper has me drooling!!

  6. I’m glad you found that bird, Nancy, because your cards are terrific. Whether on a stamped background or DSP they both look right at home.

  7. Nancy, these are beautiful! That little bird is just too cute!

  8. Two wonderful cards for Twofer challenge. 🙂 You’ve created amazing background with sweet birds on first card. Ribbon, fowers and vellum are beautiful details. I like wonderful paper on your second card. Great design.

  9. Two very sweet cards, Nancy! You’ve shown, so perfectly might I add, that all it takes is one stamp to make two really different and fabulous cards. That Verve bird is a cutie, too! Love all the stamped birds as a background, and then used him as a focal point, and the paper pieced one on you second card. Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev
