This past weekend my two year old daughter was invited to a birthday party for a little girl she sometimes plays with. The night before the party I realized, "Duh! Make her a card!" So I sat down and came up with this precious little number. I stamped the owl and balloon on a separate sheet of card stock (Neenah), colored them with Copics, cut them out and adhered them to the purple paper. (I apologize for not being able to give you the name of the stamp set- I unfortunately wasn't keeping track of that information before starting this blog and the original packaging is long gone). The stump (Hero Arts), sentiment and party hat (both from the same set as the owl and balloon) were stamped directly onto the purple card stock. I hand wrote "I Hope It's A Hoot!" on the inside using a black size 03 Pigma Micron Pen. So cute and just perfect for a little girl (or boy if you change up the colors)!
By the way, if anyone knows what the owl stamp set is called or who it was put out by, I would really appreciate the information. Thanks!
For as long as I can remember there has been a drive in me to create. I consider my first love to be paper crafting, but I have drawn, I have written, I have painted, cross stitched, hot glued, beaded, mod-podged, wood burned, sewn and, most recently, crocheted. I don't limit myself to my current skills and knowledge-- if I want to learn something new I will find a way. If I'm no good at something or find it's simply not my "thing" that's ok! I'm happy knowing I've tried and I am all the more enriched for having done so. Most likely I've learned at least one thing I can carry over into the things I do enjoy creating most.
