Hello and welcome back, it’s Karen here today. I've got a card today that features the Owl My Love and Happy Fall stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs, because who doesn't love happy mail?! Here's a picture of my card.
I used Copic markers to colour in all the images and then fussy cut them out. I die cut 4 of the wooden frames from a Hero Arts die called Wood Frame. I used some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to ink blend on the top frame, and then glued the layers together.
From the inside section of one of the frames, I inked up a grassy green colour, spritzed it with water and blotted up some of the ink with a paper towel. Once it was dry, I freestyle cut a grassy hill.
On the card front, I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment (which is from the Owl My Love set) below where the frame would sit. Next, I masked off the area outside where the frame would go, and used a cloud stencil (Cloud Edger from Colorful Life Designs) to create the sky. I then glued the frame around the inked area. And finally, I adhered the images with glue and foam tape as needed. I love that squirrel that is jumping for joy!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day.

Hello everyone, it's Karen here today. I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent video on making simple pendulum cards. It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
