Happy 50th!

Hi stampers!  Today's card is an anniversary card I made for a good friend's mom and dad.  The new card framlits make it so easy to make a beautiful card!  I used the Fancy Fan emboss folder to add some texture to the front of my card.  With our Champagne Glimmer paper I added background behind the 50 and two hearts which were made by using our smallest heart punch and punching out to hearts then laying the small heart framlit from the card die over the heart holes and running them through the Big Shot, then I cut a slice through one of the hearts and hooked them together.  The scallop glimmer edge was done using the Large Scallop Edgelit die and the 50 was made with the Typeset alphabet dies. I added my greeting to the back of the swing part of the card.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Burlap Ribbon Keychains

Here is another of my Convention Swaps and I think the funniest one to make.  I used our new Burlap Ribbon to make these fun little keychains.  All I had to do was stick the ends of the ribbon up into the keychain fob and smash it done.  I added some fleece flowers I cut out using the Big Shot and hot glued them to the ribbon, added a button and some ribbon at the top, a little tag and I was done.  Thanks for looking:)  Have a great day!

Top Note Owl Box

   A customer of mine sent me a picture of an owl box she had seen on pinterest and wanted me to figure out how to make it because she was wanting to make some for her daughter's baby shower.  So here is what I came up with.  Her body is a box made out of a 8 1/2" x 5 " piece of Smokey Slate Cardstock.  Score it on the long side at 2 1/2", 4" 6 1/2", 8" and on the short side at 1 1/2".  Put together like a normal 2,4,6,8 box.  The owl's head uses the Top Note.  Scallop Oval for the breast, retired 3 Heart punch for the beak, feet and bow, Circle from the 3 Pack punches for the bow, 1 1/4", 3'4", & 1/2" Circle punches for eyes.  I added Sticky Strip to the box about 1" down from top to attach the head too.  Thanks for stopping by, have a stamperific day!
