Christmas – Owl-idays


Back to share another Christmas card I made using Craftin Desert Diva’s Owl-idays stamps, Stitched in Circle Dies and Stampin Up – Woodland Embossing Folder.

I love how this turned out. I hope you do too!!!


Happy Owl-idays

To colour the tree bark I used my black copic pen 100 and then outlined the trees with Pigma Micron 03 black marker.

In between the trees used Tim Holtz “Broken China” and “Tumbled Glass” for the sky. The sky is actually darker than it shows in the photo.

Used Ceramcoat – White Acrylic paint and a little bit of water and paint brush to create the snow effect.

Stamped owls with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. All of the owls bodies were coloured with Copics E33, E35 and E37. Feet, Y02 and beak YR16 and YR04. Eyes, Y02, E33 and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen . The belly on the one was coloured with E31.

The hats and Santa jacket were coloured with Copics R27 and R29.

Santa hat and scarf on the lower branch were coloured with Copic markers BG05, B24,and R27. Used Martha Stuart Holidays Blue Topaz Tinsel Glitter on hat as well.

Used Liquid Applique 322 Col#0 White and my heat gun to create the fluff on Santa outfit and hat.

Sentiment was stamped with Versamark and then Stampin Up White Super Fine Embossing Powder.

Cut the frame for the wreath out 3 times and layered it, moving it slightly each time to create the affect.

Used “Crafts” red pearls to add little holly berries to the wreath. Then finished it off with a little red bow.

Hope you like it!


Vet Thank You Card

Recently our little girl (cat) Boo was very sick. The amazing staff at Robinson’s Pet Hospital managed to help save her life and make her healthy enough to come back home to us. Since then, she has been doing amazingly well. “Boo” means so much to us and we’re glad that she is back to her old self.

Here is a card that I made to thank the Vet (Dr. Emmanuel Aziz) and his terrific staff.

Used Cricut Design Studio and Cricut Explore to cut out the doctor and nurse are from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. Stamped their faces with Peachy Keen PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment. Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for their eyes and some pink chalk on the cheeks.

The little cat is from Local King Rubber Stamps “Kitty Love (4)” and the matching die Kitty Love (S). Coloured the kitty in with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Tissue Time”. I re-arranged the sentiment so that it would fit on the card.

The tag is from MFT – Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags.

Background paper is from DCWV – The Pets Stack 6.5″ x 4.5″ printed cardstock.

Hope you like it!
