Owl Version of Be Yourself

When my sisters came over for a Card Class, we made the Owl Card and the Bee Card.  We used Summer Smooches DSP, it is the most cheerful paper!  You can order it now and enjoy it before the NEW ANNUAL Catalog arrives!

I have a dear friend who's family owns Apple Orchards and has Strawberry fields.  She has invited me on many occasions to join a group to go pick strawberries.  I think of those warm sunny mornings picking 5 eating 1, picking 5 eating 1. They were so sweet, so fresh, so delightful to make pies, or jams or shortcakes.

The Strawberries were easy to make out of Summer Smooches Designer Series Papers.  I used the large Heart Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, and Boho Blossom Punch. I lightly sponged the edges of the Strawberries with Basic Black Ink.

This is one of the cards we made at our April Card Class.  I had several requests for a BEE card. I combined several Bee Designs that I have seen out of punch art and came up with this one. The antenas were made out of pipe cleaners.

"Grungy" Tag Swap

I joined a 4" x 6" Tag Swap and this is one of the tags I made.  This one was for the "Grungy" look. The  instructions were to make 9 identical (or similar)  tags, keep one for yourself and swap with 8 other designers. I am excited to get the other swappers tags back and see what they came up with. Stampin' Up! has wonderful Designer Series Papers for all styles of artistic expressions.  I wanted a masculine look with deeper tones and a fun surprise to make it an interactive tag to open up. The Sky's the Limit!

Ink: Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze
Card Stock:  Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Garden Green
