The Birds

Remind next time not to feel smug when reading about people have problems with blogger because this morning I must have torn out several strands of hair. I think possibly that it was my internet connection, along with a slow PC. But here are the Less is More Bird cards I made last night, when looking for stamps I found this Inkadinkado Bird and Owl set so instead of one card I made several!.
This is my favourite and so simple, just put different coloured gems in the flowers it does look better in real life and my Hero Arts sentiment isn't wishy washy either.
 I think it was Chrissy who made a card with an embossed oval so I thought I would give it a try and just added some tiny jet gems with the sentiment.
 So now we're getting inky, again I saw that someone had just done the corner but they done things a bit more arty than me. I have used Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender distress inks.
 So here's my failures not sure if it was the inkpad I used was just too inky or that the stamps were new and not dirty even with Versamark stamped on first.
Another favourite is the Owl, this time I punched a circle to ink round to make the moon. The tree was Stampin Up unfortunately didn't realise that the Memories inkpad was that new and was very inky so the trees are a bit splugy but I still love it.

Chrissy said...

They are all superb Debby..I have that stamp set, and my birds go a bit blurry..love the bird in the oval..classy..number one bird is pretty, love the gems.
The owl and inked night sky is lovely, my SU tree stamp works good except in the middle, dont get a great impression, and push harder in the middle the tops splay out.Fabulous cards..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Goodness Debby, what a plethora of cards!
They are all beautiful, but I think that the first two are my faves.
I usually tend to emboss from the front of the card, but embossed from the inside like this looks terrific.
Thanks so much

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 said...

All beautiful and elegant cards Debby! I have been tearing my hair out with Blogger too this past week and unable to leave comments because it just 'times out' - and most times, not even able to bring up anyone's blog nor my blog because it 'times out' too. Driving me bonkers! Such a great timewaster! All seems to be OK for the moment though......

Grenouille Greetings said...

So much loveliness; so little time! Lots of fabulous Debby creations on your blog recently and these birdy cards are all STUNNING! Hugs, Lesley
