Brining Mr. & Mrs. Owl Closer

This is a twist of my last project for Mr. and Mrs. Owl.  This one brings them closer to join their ‘wings’.  The colours of the hears on the owls aren’t showing up that well but in case you’re wondering, one is in Marina Mist and the other is in Wisteria Wonder so it’s definitely for Mr. and Mrs. !

Mr. & Mrs. Owl

Summer is Vancouver is also a popular time for weddings.  I know there are a handful of our friends who are tying the knot this year so I needed to start pumping out wedding cards.  The owl punch was perfect for such sweet occasions.  If you move the side panels, it moves the owls closer to each other like in the second picture.  And the way they look at each other just makes your heart melt.  I cased the idea of this peek-a-boo card from a project that I found here.  And when it’s flattened, it will still fit inside a standard envelope.  Tadaa!  Isn’t it great?  I decided to use the new In-Colors 2011-13 for this card.  I just totally LOVE how the colors came together!!!

  The back of the card has a pocket for a tag to write a message and on the back of the tag is also a pocket for a gift card.  Cute and also practical!

Cute, Fun & So Sweet!

Look at this altered project!  Isn’t it sweet and cute?!  My sister made it as a valentine’s gift for her hun.  I just had to show you.  She was quite impressed with her work so now, she’s joined me in being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!  Yeah!!!

My camera didn’t work hard enough to show the shimmer on the large vanilla hearts in the corner and you need to see one of the close up pictures to see that there are other small white hearts scattered around the border.  She punched out xoxo’s with the Itty Bitty punches and just tossed them at the bottom. Cute, fun and so sweet!

Valentine’s Etchings

The antique look works really well with this Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I ruffled the edges a lot and bent corners to the layers, it even more effective on the Newsprint DSP. I sponged the backgrounds with crumb cake a various shades of reddish-purple colors for a bit of a lovey-dovey feeling.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day!  This card is entered into two challenges: Inkspiration Sketch #53 & Just Add Ink #51.  Found another challenge to enroll this card in The Paper Players #33.
