Bird of Roses Times Two

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you could stop by today!

I love it when I can use a die two ways.

I really love it when I can use it in the same way (sort of)
and get two different cards.

I die cut this bird from a piece of Brusho and popped him on
another piece of Brusho that had been spritzed with more water.

Then I popped a die cut white bird in the shape left from the first cut.

I attempted to call one an out cut, but I'm never sure which is the cut out
and which is the out cut.

When I Googled it to see which was which, cut out means the piece
cut out and the left over piece.

Now I'm really confused!

Honestly, I haven't been in the wine or the Wodka!

At any rate, I was able to get two cards from that one piece of Brusho background.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Bonnie, that's such a beautiful die cut and love how your used your brusho background as well as the stunning blue bird :) I always love a twofer :)

Both beautiful, Bonnnie. Of course, I love the colour 💙 of your Brusho piece. Can never go wrong with a positivr/negative twofer. I personally call it a cut out. xx

What clever use of the paper and the die cuts - both ways!! love them bonnie

I have this die and tried it a couple of times but did not like the outcome. You have hit the mark with the first cut out in Brushso blues and the b'grd in lighter blues. Plus the branch. And those magic Bonnie touches with the linen cs, stitched opening and rich blue card base.

Two beautiful die cut bird cards, Bonnie. I think the 1st card could be the positive cut and the 2nd the negative with an inlaid white bird...what do you think?
Love the brushos positive and negative card designs:-)

Love and Hugs, my friend....

Both cars are so beautiful and elegant, Bonnie. Love the gorgeous colours of your Brushos. Always great to get two cards from one coloured panel! xx

Both are beautiful.

What two beautiful ways you used that ornate bird die, Bonnie. I'm often hard pressed to come up with one idea let alone too. Great idea to die cut from a Brusho background yielding that wonderful variation in color. Thanks for the giggles about how you haven't been in the wine or Wodka! Got a good laugh out of that one!

Wonderful use of the negative and positive bird - gorgeous shades of blue!

Marcia Hill said...

I'm a little confused now too Bonnie, but I am certain that you produced 2 FABULOUS cards using the same die and the Brusho background...LOVE them both!! :0)

Such a beautiful duo. I love that lacy bird with and without Brushos. Blue truly is a wonderful colour and these two cards reflect your zen approach to beautiful card making.

Both cards are so beautiful, Bonnie! Great use of the brusho bird and the background! I especially love the 2nd card. It's simple and artsy with a wonderful framing.
