Welcome to the first day of DeName Design Sneak Peek Week! Today the theme is “All About Owls”! If you have been following DeNami you know that she makes the most adorable owls. I love her owls and the designs that she comes up with are so unique and her style is so cute!
For my project, I decided to use the new Medium Birthday Owl! He is so cute holding the balloon and wearing his party hat! I wanted to make something really colorful and do I different technique for my background. The background of my card is made with Distress inks and I applied them with the Mini Ink Blender Tool(see the supply list below for the colors that I used) on to Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. After I blended my background, I took a Heidi Swapp Stencil that had small dots and placed it over my blended panel and sprayed it with water. I dabbed it with a paper towel after about 30 seconds a lifted the stencil and dabbed the whole panel with the paper towel to make sure that I got all of the water off the panel. I ran the panel through my Sizzix Big Shot with the Simon Says Stamp largest Stitched Rectangle die. For the owl, I stamped him Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with Copic markers (see below in the supply list for the colors used). I ran him through my Sizzix Big Shot with the second largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle die and to trim the edge I ran it again with the Stitched Rectangle Die so that I would keep that stitched border. After that I added Glossy Accents to the ballon and set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card. For the sentiment I kept it simple and used happy birthday. For the banners, I used all 3 of the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners. I stamped the sentiment on the green banner and made sure that I staggered the banners coming in the from side. Lastly, I adhered everything using my Tombow tape runner onto an A2 card base. For the envelope, I stamped the small Birthday Owl in Lawn Fawns Mermaid dye ink.
Below is a list of the supplies that I used along with links where you can purchase them! I will be back tomorrow with another project for DeNami’s Sneak Peek Week!
