It's All About The Birds

Time for a new challenge theme at
Double D Challenges and our theme is: 


We have a fun mood board for inspiration
but you can create anything as long as you use
one of the themes mentioned above!

Long ago I made a card using a Cottage Cutz Bird Trio die
(which just so happens to be our prize for this challenge)
and saved the 'negative' part of the die.
That is what I used for this card and by placing it on a piece of scrap (snippet)
paper I was able to achieve getting a small heart showing on each bird!
The heart background paper I found in my bag of red scraps and seemed
the perfect choice to show off my birds!
I heat embossed a sentiment from 
Altenew Sentiment Strips 2.

Make sure to visit the Double D Challenge blog and see all the 
beautiful inspiration from our very talented team...join in with us too!!

Snippets Playground .... Snippets

Oh how FAB to save/use the negative form this pretty die! Beautiful and clever!

Darlene said...

What a beautiful card with all the hearts and how smart of you to use the negative cut ... looks awesome! Don't you love it when you can get a twofer from one die cut! Awesome inspiration!

Barbara said...

You have a great eye to have saved this negative for future use. I love the hearts that you placed on each bird. Repeating the hearts in the background was a very nice touch and makes this card Sublime.
Btw, please remind me, as I am not perfect. This one almost got away.

Vicki said...

So pretty Diane! The heart paper background is beautiful. Great use of the negative die panel. I love this die cut!

Kathy Krug said...

I love this card in red and white. The cute hearts are a nice touch. Little love birds.

Birgit said...

What a sweet card using the same die that we're giving away as a prize. Your card is a prize in itself! What a great use of the negative part of the die too. Delightful, Diane!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, well, for heaven's sake! I have this die and have never thought to use the negative. How could I not notice that? I love it both ways. Those little hearts are adorable on each bird. I will have to get this die out again. So pretty! I'm drawn to bird stamps and dies and have a bazillion of them. The difficulty will be in decided which to use for this awesome challenge!

Judy Woodland said...

I LOVE a red and white card, and this one is spectacular. Really sweet, and adding the little white hearts to the birds is genius. ADORABLE!!!

Jaydee said...

Diane, the negative on the red really pops. I love that you did the white on red for the sentiment. Such a striking card. So glad you shared it with us at the Paper Players this week

Amelia Breytenbach said...

Such a happy and delightful card Diane. Love the red colour and the pretty heart designer paper.

LeAnne said...

Sarn said...

Great use of a negative die cut. All those little hearts on the birds are perfect.

Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground. Hope you grabbed a flower garland for your hair as well as a Maypole ribbon and had a dance around it! xxx

Christy Lynn said...

Love how you used the negative die shape here, great monochromatic card! The little bitty hearts are so cute. Thanks for playing along with us at the Paper Players this week!

Anne Marie Hile said...

So pretty, Diane! Love the hearts in the background. Thank you so much for joining us this week over at The Paper Players!

Amazing card! Love, love, love the way you used the negative of the beautiful die!!! (and a die that has a so pretty leftover is just a must have, for me! LOL) The patterned paper you used is just PERFECT for giving those little hearts to the cute birds!! So clever of you!

Di said...

Wow Diane - I do so love the negative die cut image you used and such inspired placing to pick up the little hearts within the birdies! Clever girl.
