Owls with a Sundae!

I was looking at the Adorable Owls stamps trying to think of a card. The Share a Milkshake bundle was on my desk. Ding ding! I want those owls to look like they like each other and share a sundae!

I did some reverse stamping so the owls would look like they’re facing each other.

The dies and stamps on this card from Share a Milkshake bundle are:

  • The spoons (stamped with Versamark and used silver embossing powder)
  • The sundae (the bottom was stamped with Orchid Oasis and die cut, the top was die cut using Pearlescent paper. I used a Blending Brush with Sweet Sorbet ink to give it a little color)
  • The die cuts behind the sentiment.
  • The sentiment is from the stamp set; I die cut it with Stitched Rectangles.

The Owls were colored with Light Smoky Slate Blends and Pool Party Blends. Their bows are Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet.

Only two more days! Then you can earn those cute owls for free!

I Made More Changes to my Room!

My room still looks like this from the entrance:

Here’s the link to my original post about my room. Most things I still have: My Stamp Room

First, here’s the video of the changes (and you’ll get to see my puppy!):

 

And here’s the original video:

 

But, I made some big changes. Here we go! (I am including original pictures and links)

My desk where I make videos. I used to have it covered with a table cloth, but that was kinda annoying. So I found some things to make the desk more usable. The first picture is how it used to look, the next two is how it looks now:

 

Ok, here’s what’s on this table:

Desk Hutch

Phone Holder for Videos

Wood Look Mouse Pad

White Mouse Pad

Table Lamp

 

Here’s the biggest change- my Ikea Kallax. After using it for a few weeks, I decided I really wanted a bigger one. Ikea is great with returns-if it is assembled, you have 180 days to return. You just bring in the big heavy thing and they give you your money back! I got the new one and added doors to the bottom.

I added TONS of stuff from Stamp-N-Storage. I love their products, it has made my room so much more organized.

First picture is how it used to look.

Now……

A Gnome with Flowers and a Tissue Box!

You can make those gnomes for any type of card!

For the one, I stamped the tissue box and flowers with Memento ink, then fussy cut and colored with blends.

For the gnome, I die cut his hat with So Saffron, his hand and nose with Petal Pink, his shirt and pants with Mint Macaroon, and his beard with the Snowy White velvet sheets. Those sheets are retiring and they are on sale!

I colored the beard with the Gray Granite blends. It’s so nice to have a fuzzy beard!

I die cut a piece of Sahara Sand (the size was 1-1/2″ x 5-3/8″) with the Basic Borders dies.

The background is Shaded Spruce embossed with the Gingham folder.

Here’s everything I used:

Bunnies with a Big Carrot!

When I looked through the SAB catalog, I saw the Thanks a Bunch stamp set (page 5). I wasn’t sure how I would use it, but since I was also getting the Easter Bunny bundle (page 52), I had an idea!

I reversed stamped and punched the bunny so that they would be facing each other. Here’s my quick video on that:

 

I also used the Dandy Designs DSP that is also SAB (pages 14-15). It is a HUGE pack of 12×12 DSP. Free if you spend $100! It’s the background paper on this card, so you don’t see a lot of it. All the paper is so pretty and very Spring!

I die cut one of the Fabulous Frames and colored the inside piece with my Blending Brushes. I added the bunnies and the carrot (stamped with Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut). The sentiment is from the Easter Bunny stamp set.

Check back on 1/5/23 to see all products used!

Look at that Shiny Lantern!

If you watched my video of me opening my box of new stuff, I opened the Lighting the Way dies to show you the lantern die. Here he is!

All dies and stamps are from the Lighting the Way Bundle- page 18 of the new mini.

I first used my Blending Brushes for the background. I then flicked my Wink of Stella to give some drops of shiny white.

I die cut the lantern with the Copper Foil paper.

The sentiment is also from the Lighting the Way stamp set. I stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Copper powder.
