Welcome to the May 15th & 16th Blog Tour!


The tour is over now but you can still see my projects below... I will be doing another tour in July...

Featured stamp set: Owl Together Now from Stampin' Up!

Don’t forget to bookmark your favorite blogs as the links that make up this tour will disappear at midnight on May 16th. Please come back after the weekend, I really have some fun things to show you next week! I am holding them until after my final stamp club group this Wednesday, I don't want to spoil the surprise! Plus you can enter for Blog Candy on Monday!

I chose the stamp set Owl Together Now from Stampin' Up! This set appealed to me the first time I saw it and it has grown on me even more now I've had chance to play with it. This is a gatefold card, the message inside reads "something for you from owl of us". We made this card at one of my stamp clubs when we were learning about water color crayons and the aquapainter. You need to become "one" with your Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the owls on the branch and line up their party accessories!

Whoo la la! I created a mini (3" x 3") card using the Pink Pirouette textured card stock (on sale!) and punched out an opening in the front using my scallop punch. Then I centred the peeking owl on a Basic Gray Scallop Circle and colored him in using the ink pads and a blender pen. Super easy!

I colored this little owl using markers. Then I placed him in front of a little forest stamped with the Forest Friends tree. The greeting is from the Great Friends set. The strip at the bottom is punched from a piece of Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper (also on sale!)
This final card is a Valentine's card, I used the Curly Label punch and layered 2 pieces, one horizontally and one vertically to make the border.
