So earlier this week I got a nice package with two new stamp-sets from The Crafter’s Meow. I have so fallen in love with their owls and just had to order some of them. Sense i do have a card that i love, you can find it here, so i just had to buy the Christmas set and then the valentines one just were so cute so i couldn’t not order it. Right now I do regret I didn’t get the birthday one too but that might be next month buy.
Anyway i wanted to make a simple and small card and i did of coarse wanted to use one of my new owls. I wanted to paper piece the owl so I found this brown dotted paper from Jillibean Soup, the mustard soup-collection, that i really liked. I kept going with the paper piecing and got a yellow paper from the same collection. I used the small nestabilities circle and one of the grommet tags from spellbinders to frame the image and the sentiment. Inside the circle and the grommet tag I inked with some memento new sprout and Pear tart, the photo ain’t showing of the green that well but the color looks really spring-fresh. The sentiment is from CC Design and AmyR Sentiments stamps, and i just love then and this is the first time I use it even if i have played a lot on scraps. The sentiment is stamped with Memento’s tuxedo black and rich cocoa. The stamped inks have faded a lot due to the fact that i inked the green overtop of it, next time i need to do it in the opposite order… only problem is that i like to stamp the sentiment first and then cut it out with the spellbinders die.
I’m very happy with the card and I think I will make a couple more with this basic layout, especially when I need a card quickly…
