Owl-ways here for you.

Good morning!

I'm joining the designers from Reverse Confetti for a Quirky Cuties blog hop!  If you are following along on the hop, you should have arrived here from Sarah Gough's blog.  

I love each of Jen's Cuties sets and thought I'd share a card today using the Oliver Owl set. I love the sentiment fonts and the line art images are perfect for paper piecing or coloring.

I colored Oliver with Copics and used a patterned paper from one of Lawn Fawn paper packs for the background.  The 'dirt' on the ground is some Judikins espresso speckles I've had in my collection for years. It's like glitter, but way more 'manly' - ha!

My second card uses the adorable Freida Fox.

This time I stamped the image on textured white cardstock and did some Copic coloring.  I love the linen pattern that peeks through.  The flourish images in the corners is from the So Very Special stamp set.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Kim O'Connell!

Have a great day!

Faith. Hope. Love.

Good morning!

My card today uses several Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps together to make a 'shabby chic'  love themed card.  I love the sunflowers from the Prim Blessings stamp set and paired them with the Delightfully Delicate Background as well some dots from the Lots of Spots stamp set.

First, I stamped the sunflower images in Versamark ink and white embossed them.  Then, using Distress Markers, I watercolored them in and let it dry.  Then, using some light inks, I stamped the backgrounds , not worrying if they got on the sunflowers since I used such light inks.

Such a fun card - but one that I had a hard time getting the correct colors to show through on the camera for you... sorry about that!

Have an enjoyable day filled with faith, hope and love!

Let us Adore Him.

Good morning!

Sweet'n Sassy Stamps recently celebrated Christmas in July with releasing several new stamp sets. There is a challenge currently going on for one more day in honor of the new release - check it out here!

My card today uses the new Jesus is Born for the sentiment and the adorable sheep from Prim Blessings.  The background is the Music Background

Although the thought of Christmas gives me the willies, it's great to start adding cards to my Christmas card stash! lol!  I adore summer and don't even want to think about the cold winter season yet... so part of me apologizes for the Christmas card here in the middle of July! lol!

Have a great day!
