Baby Owl Card

Joyful Stars - June 2014 Blog Hop |

Welcome to Joyful Stars June 2014 Blog Hop! New month, new blog hop from Joyful Stars CTMH Consultant team, new inspirations! I am excited to join this creative team every month to show case Close To My Heart products. You should be arriving from Joyce’s blog where this blog stars. If you happen to be here first, please visit her blog to see what she has created to share with this month blog hop.

And for this hop, I would love to share a baby card I made for our friends who just had a baby girl… She is one cute baby girl!!!

I made this card for her using Lollydoodle paper pack:

Baby Owl Card by Helen Gullett | #closetomyheart #handmadecard #ctmh #watercolor

I used 2 sets of stamp on this card: B Is For Baby (D1561) and WOTG Lollydoodle Cardmaking Kit stamp (G1080). I stamped the sentiment, owl, and the branch differently. After I inked them, I sprayed the stamps with water using a spray pen. I sprayed just enough to wet the inked stamp and stamped the image on a piece of watercolor paper. And the water mixed with the dye ink will give the watercolor effect on the paper. LOVE IT! This a way to create watercolor image when you don’t have watercolor paint.

For the owl and the branch, I used Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2197) and Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2111). After they dried, I cut the owl and the branch and added on the card using 3D Foam Tape (z1151).

This owl stamp is super cute!! I love it so much! I think it’s cuter with some blings…. who doesn’t like blings? Especially for a cute little baby girl, right? 🙂 So I added some Sparkles Clear Assortment (Z1751) and some sequins that come from the Lollydoodle Cardmaking Kit (G1080).

For the tag, I stamped it with Cotton Candy Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad (Z2193). This tag compatible with Cricut Art Philosophy Collection (Z1686). I added the tag on the paper with 3D Foam Tape (z1151) to give some dimension.

The white banner I embossed a piece White Daisy cardstock using Chevron embossing folder (Z1925) with WRMK Evolution Advanced embossing machine. I added the banners on the card using Tombow Adhesive (1514).

For the inside of the card, I picked a quote from B Is For Baby (D1561) and stamped it with Cotton Candy Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad (Z2193). The rattle is from the same set and I colored it using Exclusive Inks Markers: Cotton Candy, Lagoon, Pear, and Sunset (lighter color).

And I decided to stamp the envelope also 🙂 I picked this beautiful vine from Love This stamp set (B1432). I stamped it using Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2197) at the bottom front envelope and the flap of the envelope.
