Owl Love

Hello crafty friends,

Mary here today with what I hope are two cute and fun cards.

For this first card I went into my pile of scrap pattern papers and pulled out five that I thought worked well together.  I glued them directly to my card base and used four white die cut Sweet Petites Baseball Stitching dies as separators.

Next I added a few of the owls from the Owl My Thanks Stamp and Die set to the panels.  I used the tiny star and heart stamps on two of the panels for a little extra touch.

On the panel with the flying owl I added 2 die cut happy from the Sweet Wordlets Happy die.   I curved them a little to make it look like they were trailing after the flying owl.   As a finishing touch, I added the What a Hoot sentiment on the fringe banner.

My second card is a Spanish birthday card that I made for my niece's birthday a few weeks back.

I used the fringe banner from the Owl My Thanks die set again, only this time I die cut pattern paper. I added a die cut happy from the Sweet Wordlets Happy die and birthday from the Sweet Wordlets Birthday die on the die cut fringe banner.  I placed my favorite of the owls (with his party hat) on top of the banner and added a die cut Feliz Cumpleanos Sweet Spot die.

I hope you have enjoyed your time on our blog today.  Check back daily for new and fun inspiration.  Until next time

    1. LOL... for me the Baseball Stitching die has no sport refer... It's just stitches and I have used it often :)

    1. Thanks Donna. I have a little bit of an owl obsession so you can find owl everywhere in my house :)

  4. What fun owl stamps, great for kiddie cards! Love your papers and the use of the dies - especially the baseball one in between the paper strips.

    1. Thanks Shona :) Using the baseball stitching die in that manner is one of my top go to tricks. It's funny, because I'm not a sports person at all, but I have gotten more use out of that one die than any other die I own.
