It’s been a bit quiet here lately.  School holidays are still happening and so not a great lot of time to create.  In the time I have had I have been busy making some samples using the great Sale-A-Bration sets and also playing with some new toys from the new Seasonal Catalogue coming out very soon.  I will show you those soon but I wanted to show you this card I made last week.  I have been wanting to create this one for a little while so just HAD to do it before I got too busy.


Doesn’t he look cute peeking through the hole.  The card is made using the Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock.  I cut it lengthwise and then ran the top section through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I sanded the card a little to accentuate the woodgrain.  It makes it look just like the owl is sitting in a tree.  The Scallop Circle and the Modern Label punch are in Daffodil Delight.  The ribbon is the Primrose Petals Satin Stitched Ribbon.

Here is the inside view.  A friend has joined him.


I haven’t added a greeting inside as yet.  I can add that later when I know what the occasion will be.  This card was CASED from a card on Late Night Stampers group I think.  I’m sorry I don’t know the original creator though.  I hope you like my version??

Thanks for stopping by today to see my cheeky owls.  Come and visit again soon.

Have you checked out the new Catalogues yet???  There is some great things in there, isn’t there?? Oh, what to choose first!  I have put the links to the Catalogues in my sidebar so you can click on there and check it all out Online if you haven’t already had a chance to.  Why not get your very own copy?? Isn’t it nice to lie in bed and drool over that Catalogue?? Although that does effect the sleep as you lie awake dreaming up ideas!  Am I the only one that does that??  If you would like me to send one out to you then drop me a comment and I can get back to you to arrange your very own one to be sent to you.  The Catalogue would cost $12 which includes shipping to anywhere in Australia.

Anyway, you have come here to check out cards not read about my ramblings.  Here is a card I created a couple of weeks ago.

I wanted to play around with the Core’dinations Cardstock.  This is really cool stuff.  I have embossed it with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sanded it lightly with the ‘new’ sanding system.  The paper strips are from the DSP pack ‘Patio Party’.  I have stamped on the leaf image from ‘Just Believe’ in Crumb Cake onto the Card base.  I stamped the Framelit border from ‘Memorable Moments’ and cut it with the Framelits die.  Happy Birthday is stamped in Crumb Cake and the ’50th’ is stamped in the new In-Color Midnight Muse.  I added a Vintage Brad to finish it off.

I think this set ‘Memorable Moments’ will be very useful.  How many times do you need a numbered birthday and this set has the ‘nd’, ‘th’, ‘st’ and ‘rd’ that you quite often need!

I did enjoy making this card and playing around with my new toys.  I have lots to show you.  I have been creating up a storm over the last couple of weeks.  I have my BIG Catalogue Launch and Stamp sale on tomorrow so I will show you these next week.  It is going to be a big day tomorrow with 18 ladies coming along, but it is always fun stamping with friends.

Thanks for stopping by,
