Love You.....


Just thought I'd stop by tonight with a card share! I made this card a couple of nights ago before I went off to work. I'm enjoying making cards to express Love! I especially like these two sweet lil owls from Hero Arts! I am so glad I added them to my basket!

I searched through my stash and found this long stem blossom stamp that was right at the bottom and sadly had never been inked. I decided it would work perfectly for the card LO I had in mind!

I stamped the blossom in chocolate chip and I coloured the flowers using my Spica pens - Oh so glittery in real life! The hearts above the owls are also coloured using these pens.

For the owls I did a little bit of paper piecing, I stamped them onto kraft CS and cut out the body's of the owls only. I added a flower gem to the girl owl and coloured the beaks in orange Spica pen!.

The sentiment is from SU! Short & Sweet and I think it's just perfect for the card. The gingham ribbon adds a little touch and the panel with the owls is raised on foam pads for dimension & to life it off the ribbon.

CS: PTI Sweet Blush & Pure Poppy, SU! Very Vanilla
Stamps: SU! Short & Sweet, Hero Arts Long Stem Blossom F5030, Heart Owls D5302
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip & Real Red
Accessories: Gingham Ribbon, Spica Pens Set A, Flower Gem, Corner Chomper

It's been a quiet Saturday here and I have mostly been catching up on housework! Therefore I can spend tomorrow in the studio working on designs for college and also a lil bit of crafting! Hope your all having a FUN weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
