Have you noticed how popular owls are? Everywhere you look, there will be an owl somewhere, in home decor as well as on notebooks and cards. If you are an owl lover, or know of some owl lovers that are on your card list, you will love this set: a Stampin' Up Owl for All Occasions!
Owl Occasions is a set of fourteen stamps including the owl, the banner, and the balloon used on this card, a tree branch, Christmas stockings and Christmas cap, and lots of extra birthday accessories. Just think of all the different things you could create with this.
This card would make a great birthday party invitation card as well as a birthday card. Here is a stamping video tutorial to walk you through the process.
Did you notice that the Big Shot is used twice on this card? The Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock is run through the Woodgrain embossing folder and then sanded with the Stampin' Sanding System to get the tree bark effect. I was careful to run the sanding block in the long direction since this card stock is very fragile after going through the folder. It doesn't matter if it tears a bit, though, because isn't that what real bark looks like?
The whisper white piece was made with the Apothecary Accents Framelits, using the largest piece in that set of four framelits, and then cut to 3 1/2". (I saved the extra piece for a future card idea, of course! As stampers, we are also collectors, right?)
The owl was stamped in Raspberry Ripple and the banner in Pacific Point. I used the Summer Starfruit Stampin' Write Marker to color and stamp just the string of the balloon. I then stamped the balloon in Summer Starfruit on a separate piece of card stock, punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch, and popped it up with a dimensional. After adding a little crumb cake sponging and a glimmer brad and the card was ready to be assembled. It would be easy to make several of these at the same time.
If you have kids old enough to do detail stamping, they will love this set for making birthday cards for friends because of the variety of stamps included. (They might even be up for making their invites!)
