Make A Wish Owl Card

This birthday card was a fun one!  My brother likes owls, so of course, I have to go a little overboard when I make him a card ;)
The papers are from My Mind's Eye Hootenanny 6x6 paper pad.  I used GMD up & down in & out cut square dies for the focal point with the fussy cut images.
The enamel dots I used are from GMD beach party and tropical island collections.  The sentiment banner and the owl were popped up with foam tape.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day.

Trendy Twine ~ Owl Treat Bags

Happy Monday!  I am sharing these fun fall themed treat bags on the Trendy Twine blog today.
I started with Short Candy Bags and filled them with a yummy treat mix (pretzels, peanuts, candy corn and M&M's).  I decided to decorate them with owl die cuts from SVG Attic's Give A Hoot collection.  For the girl owl, I added a bow of Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine on her head.
For the boy owl, I made a bow tie out of Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  I stamped sentiments from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set onto banners and adhered them to the bag with Glue Dots so it looked like the owl was perched on the sentiment.  I added Autumn Sequins to the sentiment banners and then wrapped and tied Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine around the treat bag.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Masculine Sympathy Card

Happy Saturday morning!  Today I am sharing a masculine sympathy card. 
To create the background, I used a GMD Chic Style stencil and blended Distress Oxide inks in Faded Jeans and Broken China at an angle starting in the lower left corner.  I also spritzed the paper with water to give it an oxidized look.
I kept the design CAS only adding a metallic silver banner and GMD Heartfelt Sympathy word and shadow dies.  I embellished with three sequins in coordinating colors.
I liked this style so much that I created four of these cards!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Victorine Originals Challenge ~ Mood Board #13

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with a new mood board (you can see it at the bottom of this post). Here is what I created for inspiration!
 These cards are all about the Victorine Originals Halloween Kids Set.  It is such an awesome stamp set!  You definitely should check it out.  I stamped the images and sentiments from that set with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder.
 I then watercolored this image with Distress Oxide inks in Black Soot and Candied Apple.
 This one also used Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink and flesh colored Copic markers for the face.
 The dies that I used are GMD slash stitched oval and GMD crochet lace oval.  The embellishments include Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine and rhinestones, both of which match the DCWV Eek-A-Boo papers I used perfectly!
Here is a full look at that awesome Halloween Kids stamp set:

This is the wonderful mood board for the current challenge:
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s.  We can't wait to see your take on the current Mood Board.
