Owl Friends Card

Magenta Owl Friends Card
I was in the mood for a paper crafts challenge today.  Papertake Weekly had a new sketch challenge up on their blog so decided to try it.  :)  I used some newly released stamps by Magenta for my image and sentiment.  I heat embossed them with brown embossing powder (Truffle by Clearsnap in their Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powders line).  The cardstock and patterned papers are by Diecuts With A View.  I used an oval Sizzix Framelit to make the oval shape.  Finished it off with some "owl" printed twill by The Paper Studio and brown hemp by American Crafts.  Quick and simple....just right for a busy afternoon getting things ready for a visit from my oldest daughter who lives in Dallas.  Can't wait to see her!  :)  Can't believe tomorrow is the last day of July.  This summer has flown by...my youngest will be back in school before you know it.  It's time for back to school shopping (not as much fun as rubber stamp and crafts shopping either). Wink.  :)

Sharing a card I did for Inky Antics as their month long July Guest Designer.  I LOVE to do funny cards (in case you haven't figured this out by now).  Wink.  :)  The Worldly Women stamps at Inky Antics are right up my funny bone alley.  :)  I used the clear stamp set called Ageless Worldly Women on this card.  It is the one being featured at the Inky Antics blog today with step by step photos, instructions and supply list....so go check it out!  :)  Hope you have had a fun and safe 4th of July holiday weekend.  We've had such fun that I'm sad to see it end.  Thanks for stopping by.....hope to see you again soon.  :)

Can you believe how fast this summer is going by?  Yep, it's time for new Stamps of Life stamps.  The new release is called award2stamp.  I'm sharing two fast and easy cards I did with it.  Go see the other Stamps of Life design team stamps in the gallery.  :)  Hope you have had a fun and fabulous 4th of July holiday weekend.  We had a wet rainy one but that's OK.  We went to the movies (The Lone Ranger) and stayed in playing games and having relaxing family time.  Happy birthday, America!  :)
