Owl Always Love You!

Note to self...get a copy of Paper Crafts 75 Creative Card Challenges!  This amazing magazine will definitely help anyone in that crafting slump.  On those days when you just don't know what to create I'd pull out this magazine and go for it!

Here's the challenge...
Moxie Fab World Challenge #60: Create a Card With a Window 
and the other challenge
Moxie Fab World Challenge #18: Create a homemade stamp

The stamps and framelits/dies are from Stamps of Life "Autumn Owl." I really like the fact you can stamp and use the framelits instead of fussy cutting.  Sure saves a lot of time and makes for a quick design to come together.

Below is the final card with sentiment "Owl Always Love You" in the window!  Before putting all the pieces together...

I used Tim Holtz "woodgrain" embossing folder, but instead of actually embossing the card I just inked it up, (this is the homemade stamp part of the challenge!) placed the card in the folder and ran over the outside of the folder with a brayer!  Using your embossing folders can make great background stamps!!!  I learned this fun tidbit from a class I took at my local craft boutique.


Of course I needed to add the little heart covered in stickles and googly eyes for fun!  Hope everyone is having a great week and as always comments are greatly appreciated!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
