Baby Birds

We had Stamp and Share last Saturday and one of my friends shared this baby bird stamp that she found in the dollar bin.  Aren't they just the sweetest?

I stamped a few with black then thought of the brown and really like it better.  They're stamped on Very Vanilla though it looks like white in this picture.

CAS Colours and Sketches has this sketch this week.  I made it oblong and made my square oblong to match it.  

Or vise versa.

Unfortunately the other stamped birds are going to the UFO box for now.

I thought I'd share my box with you.


This is the main one.  I have another that holds the holiday UFOs.

It really isn't as tight as it was at the beginning of the summer but it needs a lot more work.

All Supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Birds (?), Bird on a Branch (retired)
Ink:  Rich Cocoa (Memento), Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip
Other:  Square Lattice EF, Hemp Twine (retired)

Thanks for stopping by.  Wish you could have stopped by on Saturday for some stampin and sharin!

I would have loved to stop by unfortunately you're a bit too far away! Your baby birds look great with the browns.

I wish I could have stopped by too. I LOVE these little birds!


Love this card Bonnie - the birds are beautiful stamped in brown.
The neutral shades, together with the embossing and the twine, give a real feel of a rustic outdoor scene.

Hope all is well with you and yours - hugs, Sylvia xx

This is lovely Bonnie-what a sweet little trio of friends :)
They do look good in the brown ink(more natural i suppose)but i am sure you will pull out the black ones at some point and turn them into something lovely.I bet we would all love to rummage about in those UFO boxes of yours LOL!
Have a great day,Nessa xx

So sweet!! These darling birds look like they are left-over from the stamp I used on your card; the others flew away! Love this, Bonnie!!

I really like your interpretation of the sketch. The little birds on the branch are adorable and I do like the stamp and share idea. Thanks for joining in with the fun at CC&S
