Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the cute Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-A-Bration stamp set? I finally pulled mine out and used it with the pretty Happy Forest Friends designer series paper for a natural look. The owls in this set are so sweet and cute that they go great with everything! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Paper Player’s Challenge PP622 is a Tag Challenge, so I’m entering today’s card in the challenge!

I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends designer series paper to an Old Olive mat and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I stamped the cute flying owl from the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls photopolymer stamp set using Soft Suede ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the owl with Stampin’ Blends – dark and light Crumb Cake, light Daffodil Delight, light Balmy Blue and light Petal Pink. I fussy cut this owl with my paper snips. It’s not the easiest piece to cut out, so don’t examine it too close, just look at the big blue eyes and say ‘Awww’.

I used a blending brush to apply Balmy Blue ink to the center of a Basic White panel and cut it out with the second largest circle in the Stylish Shapes dies. I cut a panel of Old Olive with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle dies and adhered it to the back of the blue circle. I adhered the layered circles to the card front with liquid glue and popped the fussy cut owl on top with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Crumb Cake Panel and cut it out with the small angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut the reinforcer from Old Olive and adhered it to the tag. I looped a short length of stitched burlap ribbon through the hole and tied it off with white baker’s twine, making a bow. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and finished the card with pastel iridescent gems.

I kept the inside simple by trimming the bottom of a Basic White panel with Happy Forest Friends DSP and adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal
