Twofer Challenge #40

I love birds and one thing that brings me joy is watching them at my feeders.  Fortunately I brought a bird stamp with me this summer so I can enter the challenge at Twofer Card Challenge where birds have to be the focus of our cards - two designs, two occasions.  Here are the two together.

I used the Wren and Robin set from The Greetery for my birds.

For this card I stamped the robins as shown in the stamp set with Altenew ink.  The background was blended with CP inks and the panel cut with an MFT dome die was popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Altenew's Poppy Garden.

For this card I turned the robin into a chickadee - partly stamping and partly coloring with Zigs.  I also used Zigs to color the berry branch from Altenew's Winter Florals and added a sentiment from MFT's Sweet Holiday Penguins.

I'm glad you dropped by.  I'd love it if you left a comment.

Both of your bird cards are absolutely BEAUTIFUL Bobby!! The Robins against that beautifully blended background are so pretty, and I'm totally loving how you changed the Robin into a Chickadee for your Christmas card!! You've colored both the Robin's and the Chickadee so beautifully that they really do look realistic!! So glad you thought to bring that stamp set with you to the cottage so you could play along with us this month!! Lovely, lovely cards my friend...we're so glad you played along with us at The Twofer Challenge!! Marcia (DT) :0)

I like the arched frame surrounding your robins! We just had three baby robins leave their nest last week. Thankfully mama and daddy won't dive bomb me anymore when I mow the lawn LOL!! Fabulous cards!

Sweet! Love your bird cards Bobby! The two birds together are wonderful with the blended background and perfect sentiment. It's great how you can turn the robin into a chickadee! So sweet sitting on the berry branch. xx

It's wonderful that you can make two CAS designs look different, Bobby! That bird is darling as both a robin and a chickadee! I'm so glad you brought this set with you for the summer. Thank you for playing in TCC #40! Hugs, Darnell

Your robins are wonderful, Bobby. They've reminded me of the pair that nested outside my bedroom window and hatched chicks. I've been eyeing this set from The has such pretty birds in it! Love how you've turned that robin into a chickadee! You've got some awesome skills, girl!!! It makes a lovely Christmas card. Thank you so much for joining us at The Twofer Challenge. Sending hugs. xo Bev
