Adorable Owls and Dainty Delight

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 38 – Polished Pink

Today’s cards use two Sale•a•bration rewards; the beautiful pack of 12″x12″ patterned papers, Dandy Designs and the Adorable Owls stamp set.

Dandy Designs DSP

Just look at the fun patterns on those papers and you get 48 sheets which is double the amount of most packs!

My first card today is a Polished Pink card base with three strips of the Dandy Designs papers. The middle piece is the reverse pattern of the other two!

The Adorable Owl is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with alcohol Blends Combo Markers; Pale Papaya, Pool Party, Medium Combo, Medium Deep, Polished Pink & Fresh Freesia. It is die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits dies and the edge sponged with Fresh Freesia ink using a dauber. A Polished Pink banner from the Stylish Shapes dies is glued to the card. Some Metallic Woven Ribbon (Sweet Sorbet) was added then the circle added with Dimensionals.

Some Wink of Stella is added to the party hat and eyes of the owl. Polished Pink In Color Jewels were added for more sparkle. The Basic White insert is stamped with Polished Pink ink and a narrow strip of DSP added across the bottom.

My next card also uses the Adorable Owls along with the Dainty Delight Bundle. The Basic Border Dies were used the cut the edge of the front of the card, before dry embossing it with the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder.

I die cut the Polished Pink flowers and the Gold Foil centres and the leaves. Two of these were cut and joined together to create the wreath effect. The flowers are popped up on Mini Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted using the Heat Tool. Then it was die cut using the banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. This was also added on Dimensionals. The owl is stamped and fussy cut using Paper Snips and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Markers; Pool Party (Dark), Pale Papaya (Dark), SU500, SU600 & SU700. Some of the Fine Tip Glue was added to the eyes for extra shine!

On the inside I placed some Designer Paper down the side and another little die cut flower with the gold foil centre. The envelope also has the same flower in the bottom left corner!

  1. Two beautiful cards Kate. Your owls on both cards are adorable.. I love the strips of Saleabration DSP in the background with the layered labels and embellishments. Your second card is so elegant – gorgeous with the gold foil and the Polished Pink flowers. The embossing and die cut edge all contribute to its beauty. no favourites from me – they are both delightful. xxx

  2. Both cards are just adorable Kate. I’m loving your use of the Dainty Designs paper (which by the way I love and wish it was around for longer). On your second card I really love the way you have created the wreath and to use the foil adds another dimension.

  3. Delightful cards, Kate! I am going to echo everyone else’s sentiments … LOVE your second card. It showcases Polished Pink so well, and is just gorgeous – the embossing, the paper, the gorgeous gold wreath. So many beautiful details.

  4. Kate, your first card with the three strips of the Dandy Designs papers is so cute, but oh my, your foiled second card is stunning! What a wow card! The foil just lifts it to another level.
