Sorry to be so brief…I only had a short time to stamp, so I pulled this together quickly.  This card is 8½ x 4 and will fit into a business sized envelope.  The top of the card was rounded with the Curvy Cutter Circle Cutting tool and was colored with Copics.

Stamps:  Angel – Stamp City USA; Sentiment – My Sentiments Exactly
Ink:  Black Brilliance
Paper:  Paperspectives; Bazzill
Accessories: Nestabilities; Copics; PTI Ribbon

I’m hoping for a productive week and to you, happy stamping.

    I LOVE the stamp! Where did you get it???ReplyCancel

As many of you know, I have a few stamps…my motto is, you can never have enough.  I buy all kinds of stamps and am a regular with Stampin Up, Close to My Heart, Papertrey and a host of others.  Well, I belong to a hostess club for Close To My Heart and this month is my month to hostess!! 

One of my best friends, Nancy, is a Close To My Heart consultant.  She is an everyday commenter on my blog (yes, she even has something nice to say about my dud cards) and if I bought stamps from her every day, I could not repay her for sticking with me and keeping my spirits soaring.   Nancy, thank you for a wonderful 8 years as one of your Rubber Ladies.

For those of you who are not familiar with Close to my Heart, their ordering system will now allow you to participate in parties online.  You can see an online catalog that you can turn page by page just like the real one HERE.   If you would like to try the CTMH products and would like to participate in my party, please leave me a comment and I’ll shoot you an email invite.  The cool thing is, that with online orders, the order will ship directly to you!!  The best thing is, this month is Stampaganza – please see the website for deets, but basically you can by two acrylic stamp set and you’ll get the third of your choice free.  Please don’t feel obligated, but if you do, Nancy will appreciate the business and I would love the credit for my party. 

Okay, this enabling message is over!!  :119 :100

I will be back with a card soon, after a little bit more of cleaning and organizing!!  :137

Well now that I have the majority of my die cuts catalogued and where I can get to them, I’ve promised myself that I’ll use them more.  This was a simple card and I pulled the Sizzix clock to use as the cut out background for the owl.  This is my first owl by the way!!!  I always marvel at what becomes popular and "who" would have ever thought that owls would be everywhere? 

I stamped the owl with Colorbox pigment inks and chalk inks using cat eye’s sized stamps so that I could pick and omit areas I wanted to color.   Once stamped, I cut out the owl  and a background scallop with my nesties and sponged the edges of the circle with SU Close to Cocoa and SU Chocolate Chip.  The final step was to cut out the four letters of the word hoot with my die cut machine.  After gluing down three letters, I hung the H with ribbon but tacked it down with a pop dot then added three dew drops.

Stamps:  Owl – Inkadinkado; Sentiment – Anna Griffin
Inks:  SU Close to Cocoa, SU Chocolate Chip, Colorbox Brown, Black, Colorbox Chalk Dune
Paper:  Autumn Leaves – Careful Autumn; Cosmo Cricket – Love Notes, Bazzill
Accessories:  Sizzix Clock; Ellison Go Slim Alphabet; Ribbon, Nestabilities

Have a grand day!

    Becca, it’s another WINNER! I love how you used the negative shape of the “h” and added brads to it. It’s the unexpected little touches that make your work so masterful!ReplyCancel
