Open Seas - Deconstructed Sketch

Here is another card I have made using the Open Seas stamp set from Stampin Up. I think this has taken over from the Lovely as a Tree for favourites at the moment. Awesome for male birthdays and, well, anything male really. I made this card using the sketch from The deconstructed Sketch shown below.

I have used all of the same 'ingredients' that I used for the card below as well, so this one was really speedy to put together.

Open Seas - Friday Mash up

Here is the card I made for the Friday Mash Up challenge blog.
I have used the designer papers - Nautical Expedition
Card stock to match the Designer Paper
Inks to match the Designer Papers
Stamp set - The Open Seas
Little brad for tag
Sizzix label for tag
Bakers twine - replacing ribbon on sketch
Word window punch for sentiment

Sorry - More Owls

So, with this card I had no intention of bringing out the SU two step owl punch again. I started with the colours from the Color throwdown challenge, I coloured a digital stamp in my copics, and at the last minute, changed my mind and grabbed for the owl punch. I think in my last post, I did mention that I was not going to make any more owl cards, but, well, they are seriously cute, and fun to put together as well. So this time, I am not going to promise that I will not be making any more owl cards, but they are a great little addition to any card. Very versatile.

Birthday Owls

Here is the final card for my five card using the same stamp (punch) in this case. I have used the two step owl punch, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pretty in pink card stock. Matching inks for the sponging and designer papers to match the card stock. I am entering this card in the challenge for Pastel Birthday card with The Friday Mash Up.

Colour Challenge - Kindness Owl

Okay, so I promise. No more owls for today. Maybe one more later in the week though. I made this card for the colour throwdown first colour challenge for this year. It is not quite what I had in mind when I started this card, but I think it turned out rather well. So that only leaves one more card for the Owl punch.

Get Well Owls

Some more Owls using Stampin Up 2 step owl punch. This card was originally inspired by Teneale Williams and I had posted this card last year (bring in the Medics). I decided that I would pull it apart and have a little re vamp. It's one of those moments where you finish your card and then think, why didn't I put that there or why didn't I use that. Posted below is the original card I posted, so there are a few subtle changes.

I changes the colour of the card to Whisper White, stamped the background in Crumb Cake and used the Word Play sick stamp to stamp the background, changed the wings on the owls, removed the white knot on the right hand side, added a branch and finally inked all the edges of the card and owls. Luckily, all without destroying the original card. I must have used some pretty old tape and adhesive.

Three down, two to go.

Stampin Royalty Party Owls

Here is the latest card I have made using the SU Owl Punch. I am submitting this card in the Stampin Royalty Sketch Challenge #105 this week.  Although I did rotate the sketch to fit the owls on the card, I am growing quite fond of this little punch.

I have used the following:
Peach Parfait 
Rose Red
Old Olive
Whisper White
Crumb Cake

New Years Resolution: I must make at least 5 cards using either punch or stamp set...... two down, another three to go????

Punchy Colour Challenged Owls


Stampin royalty sample 003

Here is my very first post for 2012. It is a combined challenge for Stampin Royalty (colour challenge) and also a punch challenge for SUO. I really love the way these little owls look on cards, they are one of my favourite punches. We will be making some of these cards in class for sure.
