Happy Haunting Halloween

Happy Halloween!! Here are a few cards I made to celebrate the haunting season. The two black cat cards are for my son's teachers. The other two are just for fun. I used the Coluzzle oval template to create the cats and the other two are made using the Top Notes Big Shot Die. I got the oval cat idea from Lydia B. Fiedler at Understand Blue. She's got a great blog you really need to check out. Thanks Lydia!
I hope you all have a safe and spooktacular Halloween!


Christmas Tree Card

I wanted to try to make some kind of Christmas Tree card and this is what I came up with. I used the Scallop Edge Punch for the edges but if you have the Big Shot with the Pennant Die it would be much easier. I first cut a regular sized card then cut it in a triangle shape. Then with the Scallop Edge punch I punched the angle side of the card one side at a time. Then I cut some Bella Rose DSP, glued it to the top of the card and punched that. Then I cut another piece of the Bella Rose DSP and glued it to the inside of the card and punched each side again. Then I decorated the inside and outside with the Join In The Cheer Die for the words and the Snowflake Punch for the snowflakes and the 1/2" Circle punch for a few snow balls. The swirlies on the inside are made using the 1 3/4" Circle punch then you just cut around and around in to the center. I did add some Dazzling Diamonds and Chunky Glitter to the snowflakes on the outside.
Anyway, here's the card.
Thanks again for stopping by to see me.

Snow Owl

Is it Harry Potter's Owl or is it just a beautiful snow owl? You decide. :0) I think these are the most beautiful birds and I tried to create one with cardstock. It isn't as beautiful as the real thing but it's a cute version. I hope you like it. It's made with Whisper White, Going Gray and Black Cardstock. The branches were stamped using the Eastern Blooms branch but not the flowers. I used my black Stampin' Write Marker to fill in the spaces where the flowers were. Then I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on top of the branches to create glistening snow. The ribbon was from my stash.

Thanks for coming by to see me today!



A couple of Wise Old Owls...

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are enjoying your last day of the weekend and doing something nice and relaxing. My son had a birthday party to go to so we were out and about most of the day. It was a great party and we had a lot of fun. Now we're home just relaxing for a while so I thought I'd get in a quick post.

I learned how to make these cute little owls at Patty Bennett's meeting. Ellen McCarthy shared how to make these cute little owls, a turkey, a birthday cake and a cute cupcake all with Stampin' Up! punches. Today I have the owls to show you. I have been seeing these owls all over the place lately and was so excited to learn how to make one. If you would like the directions just shoot me an email and I'll send them to you. All supplies are listed below the pictures. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by to see me!
