These owls are so cute! I stamped and colored my owl couple and made a 'swing' out of ODBD Antique Labels and Border Die and placed them there. I die cut a Flourished Vine and added it to the top and added the stamped and colored branch after I attached the rope to hold the swing. I had so much putting together this cute card!

Here's my second card:
NCC Products: Who Loves You?, Owl Family Die, Flourished Vine Die
ODBD Products: Stitched Ovals DieOval Dies

I used the two boy owls to make this masculine card. I stamped and colored each one of them twice and layered them on top of each other for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment on cream colored ODBD Oval Dies, which I further layered on a ODBD Stitched Ovals Die. I also pop dotted these to give this cards lots of dimensions!

thursday...Happy Birthday card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share my latest birthday card that i made for a friend! I used the pretty butterfly from ODBD Boho Blessings.


ODBD Products: Boho BlessingsOrnate Borders SentimentsDoily DieShabby Rose Paper Collection

I had so much fun coloring this butterfly in purples, greens and blues! I fussy cut it and layered it over a die cut doily. I added lace and a green ribbon across the center of the card, after I machine stitched the edges and added a quick birthday sentiment on the bottom right corner.

Here's a close up of the butterfly:

For this card,  I matted my background paper on black cardstock and machine stitched all around. I die cut the Everyday Hero die and stamped my sentiment to it. I colored these chubby birds with Prismacolor Pencils and added some stickles to them to make them sparkle, I also made a few of these tiny blooms in light purple and added bling to the center and stickles to the edges. I die cut some leaves and branches and adhered my embellies around the sentiment like so.

I love the possibilities for the vibrant colors in this set so I came up with this card. I used the beautiful papers for the background and used the new die in green to tie it all together. I stamped the sentiment, die cut it and matted it with the new oval dies (LOVE these!). For the tiny flowers, I stamped, colored and fussy cut them and added them to the corner for my sentiment. I finished it off with a yellow/orange butterfly in the bottom corner.


Here's a close up of  the card. You can see the layers and dimensions here.
