Wednesday’s Card: Split Owls!

Hi All! I thought it was about time for an owl card. I can’t believe I ever doubted buying this punch! Did you notice I added a subject in the top menu called “Owls & Animals”? All of my owl cards show up in this list. This card was actually really simple to make. The card base is 5 1/2″ x 12″. I scored it at 2″, 4″, 8″, and 10″, so the final folded card is 5 1/2″ x {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: Santa and Reindeer Owls!

Owl Santa and Reindeer

Hi All! The holidays wouldn’t be complete without making a Christmas card with my owl punch! I did the same owl Santa from last year, but then I added a couple of reindeer. I saw this card fold in my Paper Crafts magazine and thought it would be perfect with the owls. I love it because it also opens up like a regular card so you can write on the inside. Today is the last day of the Stampin’ Up! {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: My 2012 Holiday Photo Card

Christmas Photo Card

Hi All! I treat my holiday cards like gifts – my way of giving a little something to everyone on my list. So, I try to do something a little different and special. I know a few weeks ago I mentioned that I was going to use this holiday set, but I just couldn’t work the tree into my design. The card is a little on the whimsical side and the tree is kind of sophisticated. I was disappointed because {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: Owl Locking Card

Owl Locking Card

Hi All! I felt like it was about time to break out my owl punch again for something fun. I can’t believe I ever doubted buying this punch! The recipient of the card twists the owl so that it fits within the rectangular box and opens the card. The turning mechanism is really quite simple – a brad between two glued owls. I also used a new product from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog called “Core’dinations” cardstock. The inside of {Read More}

Wednesdays Card: Critter Pop-Up

Critter Pop-Up

Hi All! Sizzix just came out with some new pop-up dies. When you look at them, they are pretty simple to replicate without the die. Granted, the die will also cut the image that will be popping up for you (in my case the critters), but why not just have a simple box that you can adhere anything to? I’ve created a few other pop-ups before if you want to check them out: Two Owl Versions (Simple & Advanced) and {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: Owl Flip-it!

Owl Flip Card

Hi All, A few weeks ago, one of my YouTube subscribers asked me to do a tutorial on a flip card. I actually created an extra fold in my version of a flip card to make it more interesting. I also found out that Sizzix has a flip-it die that will do all the cutting and scoring for you (not my version – the standard “flip-it” version). That’s very convenient, but then you’re limited to whatever shape you purchased. With {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: Double Slider Birthday Card!

Double Slider Card

Hi All! I guess since last week’s card was kinda simple, I felt like doing something a little more complicated this week. I was actually searching for a different kind of folded card on YouTube and came across this video. I thought it was really cool and decided to give it a try. Here’s the thing – I am about 3 years late to this party! This card has been around for some time. There are lots of different videos {Read More}
