For my card today I have used more of the yummy Cloud9 BeLoved paper for this Anniversary card. Aren't these owls just the cutest pair and as well as being perfect for valentines I thought they would be great to use for an Anniversary card for my mother and father-in-law. It's not until April but now i'm well prepared! The clouds are part of the designer paper so thought it would be great to stamp the sentiment in the centre.
I didn't want my little owl lovers to be floating around in the air so I stamped them twice. Coloured one in full and then cut it out cutting off their tail feathers. I then stamped the image again and just coloured in their claws and tail feathers. I then cut just this part out from the second image. I stuck the fibre into place behind the main image then matched it up with the claws and tail behind on the second. Ta da.. you have them sitting on a little branch.. I think it turned out kinda neat don't you?
I would like to thank a dear friend for the SU Corner ticket punch (you know who you are ;-) and know it will get lots of use!
This cute couple along with lots of other yummy High Hope stamps can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts.
If your feeling lucky this stamp is also our prize this week at "A Spoon Full of Sugar" .... so get paper piecing!
I would now like to thank Jackie from Illinois for sending me a picture of her beautiful card she made for Tina's Grandfather. Jackie doesn't have a blog so thought it would be nice to share it with you here. Thank you so much for your kindness Jackie.
I've been quite a busy little bee this week haven't I? I can't keep at this pace so will be slowing my posts down again now ;-) Phew you all say.. as if you don't have enough blogs popping up in your google reader!
