Owls, Owls, and More Owls Part One

Hi Dreamers!
Well, I did not finish the card using my new stamped backgrounds (from Monday's post).  I have been busy cleaning the house, baking, and ironing.   Lots of those kind of things that I got behind on while my husband was off sick.

So, I decided to share the Owl cards I made.  I mentioned the cards last week.  The cards were made using only my scrap basket and my stack of folded cards left over from other projects.  I think it is fun to challenge myself to use up some of my scraps.  I always find a small piece of a  favorite paper or CS color.  Fun!

Stamp: Owl from Hero Arts
Black Pigment Ink
Black Embossing Powder
Assorted DP's, CS, and ribbons
Punches and dies

All the Owls are stamped with black pigment ink and heat embossed with black powder.  I used some hemp twine and DP from K & Company on this owl.  Just Because stamp is from AMuse Studios.

I used a white card base and Stampin' Up DP on the card below.

The Owl is colored with markers.

Repeat the paper on the inside.  This fun sentiment is from DRS Designs.


I think I could use this orange version for Halloween by simply adding a sentiment on the inside.  This orange polka dot paper is from AMuse Studios.  The Yellow DP is from Stampin' Up.

Challenges for my scrappy Owl cards:
Die cut Divas: orange and white---card #3
Oldie But a goodie: cards for boys---items used --all the papers and CS were in my scrap basket and some are 4 + years old

Craft Door Magazine: anything goes
ABC Challenge: stamps, ink, paper
C is for Challenge: fresh and bright
Crafting by Design: anything goes
Simon's Wednesday Challenge: monochromatic---card #2
Sisterhood of Crafters: scraps

Well, I made so many owls that I will have to break it down into two posts.  So, check back for part two!
Hope you are having a great day!!  Love ya.
