Give A Hoot Hoot Hoot! (by Asha)

Good morning, fellow Chocoholics. It's my turn to show you the October release stamps in action. My projects today feature stamps from the Owl Hedges A5 sheet.

In this card, I've used the individual owls and the grassy border from  Owl Hedges  to create a scene where the owls are looking out from a crack in the side of a barn.  To create the barn wall I embossed a piece of card stock with the wood grain folder and dirtied it up with distress inks. Then cut it into ½" strips, inked the sides and rearranged them. Next I tore a hole and adhered the strips down. Then came the grassy border and the sentiment from Words of Comfort stamp set on a piece of vellum. Finally the owls: coloured with Faber-Castell Polychromos, fussy cut and adhered in the opening.

More owls on my second card. This time I'm showcasing the row of owls on a branch from the Owl Hedges sheet. I created the background by blending Distress Inks and stamping the the row of owls and added a little movement with a stamp from the Seasonal Fragments sheet.  Then I stamped the owls again on a separate piece of card, coloured with Faber-Castell Polychromos, fussy cut just the owls and adhered them to the card. Finally, a greeting from the Birthday Words sheet.

That's all from me today. The Design Team has loads more projects lined up for you. Don't forget to drop by again ... soon. As usual, more pictures and details of supplies used to make these projects are available over at my blog.

Have a beautiful day!

  2. Two wonderful owl cards Asha. I love the woodgrain fence with the owls looking through the hole and the bullrushes on the vellum give a nice grassy edge. The second night time scene looks great with that bright moon and the fussy cut owls sitting on the branch, just so cute! x
