Bird Houses Again

Many thanks for the various comments left on my previous post using this embossing folder - all helpful.  I've had another go and this time I stamped some silhouette flowers along the bottom before embossing, then sponged around the edges.  I made a tag with some bunting and an owl using a punch which hasn't seen the light of day for a while, the bunting was stamped and punched (items used on the tag are all Stampin' Up).  All that was needed then was a little sentiment.  A quick post today because I'm off to a machine embroidery workshop later on - really looking forward to this one and hoping that I have packed everything I need to take.  My usual thing is to take far too much 'stuff' and then find I've not taken something vital!!  I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Lovely card Val and your little owl looks so sweet on your pretty tag....again your background is great and like how you've inked the flowers along the bottom


  2. A gorgeous card Val. I love the embossing folder, the bird houses are so cute and as you've said before a shame to cover them up. This looks great with the owl tag.

  3. This looks brilliant - the flowers make a huge difference & I love those pennants. Have fun at your embroidery workshop, I'm not surprised you're looking forward to that.

  4. Really like that you've stamped your flowers at the bottom before embossing Val - great effect...........and so is your cute owl. Just lovely. Can't wait to see what you made at your FME next one is on Saturday and it looks pretty exciting. Where did you go for yours? (Now I know why you weren't at Yandles yesterday!!!)
