Well we’ve made it to the middle of the week. Even though it’s been a busy one so far, I’ve managed to keep on top of everything. Now with the end of the month quickly approaching I wanted to remind you that Sale-A-Bration ends soon. In fact, by this time next week it will all be over. Even though I didn’t love all the free items, there was enough to keep me happy. So today I wanted to give the Adorable Owls Stamp Set one last outing, before it’s gone for good.
LAST OF 3 OWLS
The Adorable Owls Stamp Set contains three sentiments and 3, well, adorable owls. I’ve used the flying and standing ones so today it was the turn of the sitting owl.
I began by stamping the owl onto a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Card using Early Espresso ink. Then in the top right corner I stamped “Hoot! Hoot! You’re so cute.”
To colour him in I decided to keep things really simple with just one pack of Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. First, using light Crumb Cake I coloured his face, tummy, beak and feet. Then using dark Crumb Cake I coloured his head, back, wings and eyes. Finally, going back to the light Crumb Cake I coloured the highlight in his eyes, before going over the beak and feet a second time. This second layer of colour just darkened these areas a little giving me three different shades on my image.
With that done I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a 3″ x 6″ piece of Very Vanilla Card. Then with the long side at the top I used the scoring blade to score the card at 3″. After folding the card along the scored line, I sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
To turn the folded card into a tag I opened it up and placed it under the slot option of the Very Best Trio Punch. Then I slid the crease just to the right of the slot indicated on the top of the punch and pressed down to add the hole. Now when I folded it again I had a slot cut in the back of my tag.
Next I cut 6″ of Crumb Cake twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, threaded it through the slot and tied the ends together with a simple knot.
Finally I cut a 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ piece of Early Espresso Card and mounted the stamped layer on top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow). Then with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back I attached the assembled layers to the front of my tag and I was done.
