You’re a Hoot

Hey Everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m here today with a card to inform everyone about the Paper Smooches August DT Blog Hop. Paper Smooches is releasing a new line of stamps and dies which will be on sale starting September 1.

I decided to make a card using some of the awesome free digis you can download over at their website.

Here is my card —

You're A Hoot

I started with a card base measuring 3 1/2 by 5 1/2. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from ColorBok’s Hootenanny collection. I printed the digital images on some Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored the owl and branch image with some American Crafts Chromatix markers. I rounded all four corners of the panel and drew stitching lines with the Sakura green metallic gel pen. To finish the card, I adhered the panel on the base and rounded the side corners.

So Thankful For ZYou Flowers

 

I started this card with some Neenah Creative Collections card stock in Colonial Blue cut to a standard size landscape card. Then on some Neenah Solar White card stock, I stamped the Martha Stewart Stamp Around the Page set using the flowers from the Antique Borders collection. I colored the stamped image. This was very simple coloring. I used the American Crafts Chromatix Markers. I did not do any shading because for sure I knew I would go past the 10 minutes if I did. But I think it still looks ok without shading. For the sentiment, I used a set from Studio G and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I tied a blue variagated/ombre embroidery floss from DMC and and rounded all four corners of the white panel. To finish the card, I adhered the entire panel on the blue card stock with foam adhesives.
