Welcome to our October Blog Hop!! This month our theme is Thanks, Thanksgiving, and Thankfulness. I have needed a lot of Thank You cards lately, and I wanted to showcase a card and project that might inspire you too! As always, everything is available in my online store, and I’m happy to help you if you need anything, let me know!
As you know, I am involved in four blog hops with four different groups of stampers. Today it just so happens that two of the hops coincide- I worried about this happening…. but if you want to see more on this theme, come back tonight at 9 PM eastern time and you’ll see some more projects!
Everyone knows how much I love owls, right? Well, today’s projects feature my beloved owls.
The card is made with the new hostess set from the 2016 Holiday Catalog called “Cozy Critters”. I pulled in the tree stump from Foxy Friends so my little fox would have someplace to sit. Guess what I used for the owl’s eyes? The 1/8″ hand-held punch worked perfectly for the smallest pieces. (The scarves on both the owl and fox were hand-cut). And the greeting is from “Acorny Thank You” that carried over from last year.
I wanted my little owl house to be cute and woodsy, I started by just stamping the door on my piece with the hardwood background stamp in Early Espresso ink on my crumb cake cardstock. (First I cut the two pieces from Home Sweet Home thinlits dies. Use post-it notes to mask off so ink doesn’t get on the house).
Use our wonderful Tear-n-Tape to assemble your little houses, you don’t want them popping open or falling apart. Love our heavy duty double sided Tear-n-Tape for projects like this!! I made a custom roof so it would look more rustic.
The August Paper Pumpkin kit had these adorable wooden accent pieces, I thought they added a nice touch to my little fall project, what do you think?
It’s a little retro-Vintage looking, do you agree?
