Adorable Owls By Stampin’ Up

The Adorable Owls stamp set is one of the many Sale-A-Bration offerings this year. This stamp set can be chosen as your free gift with your qualifying purchase during the months of January and February 2023. Of course, this offer is while supplies last.

Did you like this fun fold card? First, I love it because it is so incredibly simple to make! Second, it has a little unexpected opening action. Finally, it uses minimal supplies.

More Cards Using Adorable Owls

With the exception of the card with the flying owl, all the cards feature the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper. That DSP is another Sale-A-Bration offering. And it is probably my favorite one! The flying owl card was made using the new Hand-Drawn Dots background stamp. It can be found in the January-April Mini Catalog.

None of these cards were difficult to make. But those cute little owls just make me happy. Hopefully, they will make those who receive them happy too! 🙂 As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

The Seasons of Fun Stamp Set features adorable images of children celebrating various holidays. Halloween, Fall, and Christmas are all represented! Pet images are included as well. The DSP used on this card is from the Cute Halloween DSP package.

I enjoy coloring with my Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers. It reduces stress for me. Additionally, I love that we have so many coordinating colors. And isn’t that little skating girl precious?

This card just makes me smile! I love the colors and images on this card. Isn’t the kitty hiding in the leaves cute? This image reminds me of a photo that I have of my children in the leaves. And, it is still one of my all-time favorite photos!

To decorate the inside of my card, I pulled in a stamp from the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. I used the tiny trio of leaves in the corners. The background on the front of the card was created using this stamp as well.

Trodding through the snow to cut and gather a Christmas Tree has never looked so carefree and cute! The Designer Series Paper is from the Gingerbread & Peppermint package.

The inside greeting is part of the Christmas To Remember stamp set. But you can substitute any greeting that you like.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and watch my video. I hope that today’s card inspires you to pull out your supplies and make a card or two! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Stellar Birthday

I live in Huntsville, AL. We are the Rocket City. The rockets developed here put man on the moon! Huntsville is home to the US Space & Rocket Center, Marshall Space Flight Center, and Space Camp. There was no doubt that I would be purchasing the Stellar Birthday stamp Set!

This stamp set features whimsical space children, a dog, and sayings that play off of the space theme. It comes across as a set only for children’s birthday cards, but I will show you a version for adult space enthusiasts as well.

Today’s Video

My first card is a sweet fun fold card. This project begins with creating my own DSP. I used our Whisper White Craft Ink Pad and the star stamp to create a night sky. Don’t forget about this star stamp when you sit down to make Christmas Cards this year!

There aren’t any dies to match this stamp set. However, the images are not difficult to fussy cut. And these images are so cute! You can customize the hair and skin color to represent your favorite child. I love that!

My second card is on a Smoky Slate base. It is in a horizontal orientation. The greeting was stamped with Night of Navy ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. The embossing just helps it stand out a little better.

My final card is for a very special friend. Mr. Frank is a member of my church family. He has worked in the space industry for decades. Frank is just now getting ready for retirement and he is in his 80’s. Yes, you read that correctly!
