More Owls

But they are just so cute!! 
I had the itch to make something tonight so I found some where Owls with eyes like what I did on the cards above. I punched out the bottom layer of the eyes from the boho blossom punch. I think it turned out pretty good.  Card colors are poppy parade, concord crush, whisper white, marina mist and crumb cake.    Don't tell my husband but I can do more with my broken arm than I thought! It will be out little secret LOL!   

Do You have this punch yet?  E-mail me to place your order today.  I send you a treat with you

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Scoop-Party Bears

Hi! Sorry I have not posted for awhile. I broke my arm last week and have not been able to do much. i do have some cards that I have  made recently and will share while my arm heals.

I had stamped theice cream cones  from my sweet scoops set  on a piece of paper. for some reason the paper was turned over and I looked at it and said to myself that it looked like little faces with party hats. So I added faces and a tiny little bow and wow it turned out great. I think I will get the new set make a Monster to add more faces to the next card I make like this.  I'm sure it will make some interesting faces this way.

Sweet Scoops is in the Summer mini that is only available until August 31st.  Don't miss out on this  great set.

Have  a GREAT day!

Happy Anniversary Owls

HI!  I made this card for my wonderful parents that have been married for 38 years!!!  Don't worry she has already seen the card.  She will just be surprised to see it here today.  Hi MOM!!

The card has 2 of my Mom's favorite things Owl and the color Purple. My background is using Concord crush DSP that has some new very nice designs.  The words are from A word for you (117032 wood and 120528 clear).  I bought a wood mounted set and I think when buying words sets I will try clear. I think it may be easier to line things up with it.    A word for you is similar in design to Heard from the Heart (111644 wood) also a must have. I can't tell you how much I have used both sets.  LOVE them both. 

Other new goodies on this card would be the Elegant Lines embossing folder (119277) to add a little touch to the background of the Owls.  I also use the Dotted scallop Ribbon border punch (119275). It really does look like ribbon. A nice addition and no bulky ribbon.   Owl punch is (118074).

Banner #3

Sorry to take so long to get this card posted. I had some technical difficulties and thankfully my husband is now home for teck support.  Thanks honey!!

I just wanted to show you how to turn ice cream cones in to a banner for your next card.  I stamped the cones/ banner in daffodil delight then cut them out. I hand wrote my letters for Happy, not to bad if I say so myself, in marina mist.  I stamped Happy Birthday from the stamp set a Word for you (Great set) also in Marina Mist. 

When adhering the banner to the background paper I glued down my banners first then drew a line to connect them.  Then added the poppy parade dots that I punched from my 2 step owl punch. 

Supplies you need to make this card:
Card stock: Marina Mist, Daffodil delight, Crumb cake, Whisper white.
DSP: poppy parade ( hostess level 1)  
Ribbon: Marina Mist
Embossing: big shot,  perfect polka dots embossing folder
