Create A Critter - You're A Hoot

I love this card! I think it is a combination of the colors of the paper and the image of the owl!

When my daughter saw this card she said she was going to take it. I think she wants to lose a hand or something because if she took just one it would mess up the sets I have! *okie thinks she might be a little OCD since she can't let go of one card from a set, she has to let go of a full set if she lets go of one*.

Cricut Expression
Cricut carts - Create A Critter; Mickey Font; George
Cuttlebug; D'Vine Swirls folder; Swiss Dots folder
Cardstock - Stampin Up, Core'dinations Whitewash; Prism
Patterned paper - Stampin Up
Stickles - Diamond
Stampin up markers
Cat Eye Inks
Spareparts brads




I really like how the moon that is behind the owl turned out. I used the Core'dinations Whitewash paper there and it looks so cool after it is embossed and sanded! I pop dotted the owl and the sentiment on the front. I also cut the leaves twice and layerd with pop dots.

You can't really see it too well but if you click the picture you might be able to, I used Diamond Stickles for the owls belly feathers.




I so totally put the Hoot going the wrong way *okie will never learn not to talk on the phone while crafting* so I had to cut the thing a part and rearrange the white background and the patterned strips. Luckily it worked out okay!

If you would like the cut file for this card you can find it here... YOU'RE A HOOT










Tonight is Stamp Club so I will be spending the afternoon and evening with my friend Linda, aka LGuild. We are suppose to check on booking motel rooms for the Great American Scrapbook Convention that is in June at Arlington Texas. I also get my Stampin Up stuff tonight so I am so excited!!

Tomorrow I will be posting the giveaway for a slighty used prize so don't come back if you don't like used products! *okie cracks up laughin*

  12. Another cute card! I need to get me some of the coordinations paper. The last time you gave us the heads up on the sale, I had my cart all loaded up, got distracted by life, came back the next day and the sale was over...so sad. Next time I'll know better. Have fun at your Stamp Club tonite!

  13. Linda - I usually make 4-6 of a card when I make them. But she still ain't gettin one! LOL

    Sandy - GASC is Great American Scrapbook Convention. It isn't like the Stampede really. It is HUGE. There are crops, classes and a lot of BIG name vendors there and the prices are fantastic!!

    love the cards also have a ? for you the promarkers you got are they water based saw some markers today at joannes there was a set of 6 and a set of 12 i think and they said water based promarkers wasn't sure if this was what i needed to buy

  20. Paulah the ProMarkers I use are Alcohol markers. The alcohol markers blend wonderfully, water base will streak when coloring over or doing some blending.
