Flowers and Owls




I've got three colorful cards to post today.  First up is another entry into Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes challenge using Blossoming Buds.  I cannot seem to stop using these flowers.  My card is a CASE of this card Kim made on her crafting get away.  I am also entering this card at HYCCT Tilted Layers challenge.



I stamped and die cut one of the flower groupings three times, colored them in, then adhered them along the tilted edge of my front panel.  I lined two of the die cuts up against the edge, and cut some of the leaves off the third piece and layered it over the place where the other two met. 



Next up is a card for this fun owl inspiration photo, hosted by Inkspirational Challenges.  I have never heard of this challenge, but I saw this photo in a couple of places over the last few days, checked it out, and decided to play along, and just in the nick of time, too.


I think it is pretty obvious where my inspiration came from.  I stamped all 9 owls using Versamark, embossed in clear, and then used a rainbow of different Distress inks sponged over each owl.



My last card is inspired by the Simon Says Wednesday Thinking of You challenge as well as the HYCCT Fault in Our Stars challenge.

I seem to be on a bit of a coloring binge lately--this is my latest purchase from Stampin Up--Corner Garden.  Again, I have found a stamp set where the flowers are all arranged for me, and all I need to do is stamp and color. 


Thanks for Visiting

  14. I knew immediately that your beautiful first floral card was a CASE of Kim's Lake House card! It is stunning, Joyce! The owl take is a hoot (sorry, it had to be said) and your corner garden is colored so perfectly! I have that set - NBUS, of course - so I thank you, once again, for your inspiration! Pinning that one! Hugs, Darnell
