Hi stamping friends! I have some fun news to share today. I was asked last week to be a guest designer for the Create with Connie & Mary Holiday 2012 Edition online class. This week is the Sneak Peek and Early Bird pricing. You can get free projects this week during the Sneak Peek and if you would like to join the class this week there is Early Bird pricing for $24.95. Plus the opportunity to win a free class pass. So make sure to check every day this week for more details at Create with Connie & Mary. Preview week started on Sunday with a super cute Fall Broom center piece – it would match my card for today just perfectly. And on Monday was a fun (and tasty) Halloween Tower of Treats. I may just have to adapt that idea for Tyler’s birthday tomorrow. He’ll be 19! If you want free tutorials for either of those projects or the others that are posted this week be sure to visit the Create with Connie & Mary site. And if you want more projects (they won’t be posted anywhere else) be sure to join the Holiday Class.
How do you like this fun card? The idea with the paper triangles was shared with me out in Utah by Sandy Rule. For this card I used the new Orchard Harvest Designer Paper from the Holiday Catalog. Cut a piece of each pattern – start with a rectangle – I think mine were 4″ x 1-1/2″. Then cut each one into two triangles. Then glue the triangles into the sunray pattern on a piece of card stock and trim around anything that is outside the rectangle. I sponged everything with Early Espresso card stock (and believe it or not I ran out of Early Espresso card stock – Chocolate Chip to the rescue for my party on Sunday). Linen thread for an accent around the layer. I used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the “Happy Birthday”. I stamped the Owl from Owl Occasions in Early Espresso and punched it out with a circle punch. And added one of the little gift boxes in Cajun Craze. Then punched and layered two of the blossom punched flowers from Cajun Craze card stock. And the belly of the owl is paper pieced – I stamped him on a piece of the designer paper and cut it out and layered it on the stamped owl for the card.
I also decorated the inside of the card – here it is –
This was one of the projects the girls at my Getaway Celebration party got to make on Sunday. Have a great day!
