For The Love Of Owls

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...It is my Grand Daughters 12th Birthday soon.  I have been racking my brain for something special for her.  She is a beautiful, loving, and very caring young lady.  When you ask her what she would like for her Birthday she always says I don't know, anything is fine.
What do you do for someone like that.  You want to make it special but boy, that is a hard one.  She has loved Owls for years now so when I see something with Owls on it I think of her.  When we go to the any wildlife place she wants to see the Owls.  She has done several reports at school on different kinds of Owls and how they live.  So you guessed it!  I will make her something with an Owl on it. In the Four Seasons Home Decor cartridge there is a 3D shadow box with an owl in it.
When you bring it into the Design Space it is different shades of the same color so I first ungrouped it and added different colors to each one closer to nature.  Then I copied and pasted another Owl one and used the hide contour button to make a darker silhouette that way I could add feathers and the branch would have different shades to it too.

White Pines WOTG and using the MISTI

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Here is my video showing how I use the MISTI on the WOTG.  I really like how this works when you have more than one of the same card to make.

Some things the MISTI is not suited for but this was perfect for it.  I love things that make life easy don't you?   My friend Tess helped by demonstrating how this was done.  It was a very spur of the moment thing and I think she did a great job.  Tess's Mother-In-Law even had a great time stamping and making all the cards.  Lorraine and Terri were there too.  Everyone was so quite that usually doesn't happen.  We are all laughing and having a great time.

October Card Swap

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...October is a fun month for our card swap because we always do a fun Halloween card.  So here is what I did.

I used the Artfully Sent cartridge to cut the Birch Trees with and then I used Art Philosophy to cut the background for the Happy Halloween.  I did a search for the bats and the crow but I think they were from Happy Haunting.
The Happy Halloween is from the stamp set Steampunk Scoundrels B1503.
I actually cut everything out of Daisy White cardstock.  I then sponged the colors I wanted I also used my ShinHan Alcohol markers to get the look I wanted.  I used Wink Of Stella Clear over the moon to get some sparkle.  I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the other cards this month because I gave them all out already to the Ladies at my luncheon that was the next day.  OOPS!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
