We got the cutest stamp set on the Bermuda cruise. It is called “Owl Together Now”. I think that owls must be the new popular animal cause I am seeing them everywhere, at least in the stamping world. I remember when the Hedgehogs were everywhere, and then it was Penguins. We first saw card samples of it in the Hospitality room, and it was so fun looking…not funny looking….I mean, any stamp set that I can color is a winner by me.
I thought I better whip up a card to put on here, so you all don’t get bored and stop coming by to see me. I have been busy with Spring Fling and Convention display stamping but tonight, I decided I would take a break and stamp a card for me…and YOU! Now when I say I am going to whip up a card basically it takes me about an hour to do that… I mean I have to figure out my colors and the design, and then color and cut and then it all comes together.
By using background paper it makes figuring out the colors so much easier. I used the Le Jardin paper, and it uses River Rock, Always Artichoke, So Saffron, and Bashful Blue, so basically the card’s colors were figured out for me. I just cut out a bunch of the branches and leaves to make it look like the owls were inside the tree.
This is a little card from the Gibbs’ family. There is Eric, Jeff and Me! Ha!!!
Along with coloring, I love to cut things out and make it 3-D. That is what making a card is all about. You can’t get that from a card you buy at the grocery store.
Thanks for stopping in!
