Time to Smell the Flowers!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This adorable little bunny is taking time out to smell the flowers. We have a really nice garden of flowers that my husband takes care of. I’m not a green thumb at all. LOL! It’s always nice to take a moment and enjoy the beauty of them.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. The base background was also cut at 6″ x 6″ using Craft Consortium – Cottage Garden paper and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I just thought this paper went so well with this adorable image. I added the 2 colours of ribbon with some 2-sided tape and then adhered the entire background paper to the base with 2-sided tape.

The scalloped circle and inside image circle were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Craftin Desert Diva’s Stitched in Circle Dies. The circle in between the 2 of them was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. The edges of the large scalloped circle were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. For the sentiment, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used. The die was larger in depth, so I just die cut one side and then turned it around and only put it part way through my Cuttlebug to cut the other edge. It too, was then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the mid circle was attached directly to the large scalloped circle and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

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!
