I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Owl I Want For Christmas

Good morning all,

I hope your weekend is going well. I spent Friday evening and most of yesterday stamping trying to ramp up my  Christmas card production. I'm not sure how many I have so far. What ever the count, I'm sure it's not enough. :D

Since Karen G. posted the Sweet Sunday Sketch #171 last night fairly early on FaceBook, early by Pacific Time anyway, and I got my card made last night. Love the sketch this week with all the layers. It's my kind of sketch!

I saw this cute Lawn Fawn set at a local stamp/paper crafting store a few weeks ago and had to have it. In fact, I treated myself to a few more Lawn Fawn sets. I love the simple, bold, graphic style of their stamps. I picked up these Lawn Fawn patterned papers as well.

The owl is stamped on X-Press It Blending white card stock, and colored with Copics. I sponged around the image with some Memento Cantaloupe ink. The owl's scarf is paper pieced and shaded with a W01 Copic. The flags are made with Die-namics FishTail Flags STAX dies. I added some stitching and the rhinestones to finish it off.

I'm off to go shopping this afternoon. Work meeting all next week and I need something to wear.
