Two Owls, So Much Inspiration!

Hi Everyone, I'm catching up and sharing a few cards I made for last week's Hero Arts challenge. There is an endless supply of inspiration on the Hero Arts website so this challenge was well...not so challenging. :)


My first card was inspired by Tami's layout seen HERE and the cute little owl seen in the new Hero Arts store HERE.

When I was looking around the website for some new inspiration I came across a set of cards that Shari made. My favorite card of the set was THIS one. You can see all the cards in her set HERE. So with those four cards as my inspiration I made another owl card.


When I was playing around with the design I realized I needed a white center to offset all of the color. I already had the green frame in place but the four squares continued in to the middle. I was going to mount a white piece in the middle but realized it would be fun to cut out the middle instead and mount the owl on the card base which also gave me a place to hide the tree branch. I'm so excited to use the scrap piece that I cut out from the middle!!!

Materials:
[Guess Whoo Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Artistic Windows, Big Hoot, Cute Letters
Paper: PTI, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed

Ink: ColorBox Chalk, Memory Box
Other: Hero Arts Black Gems & Buttons, PrismaColor Pencils, Machine Stitching, String

[Owl Saying Hello Card]
Stamps: Sending Happy Thoughts, All Occassion Messages
Paper: K&C Company Amy Butler, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed
Ink: Memory Box
Other: Hero Arts Pearls, PrismaColor Pencils, Nestabilities Label One

Happy Sunday everybody! I didn't think I'd be entering this week's Hero Arts challenge but I was reading through my favorite blogs yesterday and was totally inspired by Jennifer Holmes . Love when that happens! Within a few hours I had this card put together. I had fun adding a few extra details. I curled the beak around a pencil to make it curve. Then put two layers of dimensional tape under the middle to support the shape. I also made accordion feet. These can fold flat for mailing. :) Materials: Hero Arts Stamps (Basic Lower & Upper Case Letters, Wavy Leaf Pattern, Many Hearts), Hero Arts Flowers, Hero Arts Button and Gems, Black Buttons, BoBunny Paper, String. Have a great day!

Mama Elephant March Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! www.mamaelephant.com I am so excited to share the new stamp set Ella & Friends with you! There are so many fun images to choose from in this set that all centers around the BEST elephant stamp ever. ;) I started my scene by stamping the elephant, then I masked in the bunny and bubble blower. Finally, I stamped the bubbles, puddle and splashes. I was SO fun to create. I colored the images with Copics and added a little ink to complete my scene. I trimmed it down to fit inside of the Instalove Creative Cuts and stamped the sentiment. I know you'll agree that stamping this set is super fun but first... To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede.
