This is a card that I wanted to make for a long time but never really took the time to make. Finally, I got around to make it!
I used the Bird Builder punch to make the wreath (the little branch on that punch). I used 3 different green card stocks: Gumball Green, Garden Green and Wild Wasabi. I added little Real Red flowers punched with the Itty Bitty Shape punch pack and added a small circle in Gold Glimmer paper punched with the Owl builder punch. I made a miniature bow with Real Red card stock. To make the door, I cut 4 rectangles in Early Espresso card stock and scored the lines with the Simply Scored Scoring board and I glued them on a piece of Early Espresso card stock. The door handle is an Antique brad.
CS: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Real Red, Gumball Green, Garden Green and Wild Wasabi, Gold Glimmer paper.
Tools: Build Builder punch, Itty Bitty Punch pack, Owl builder punch, Simply Scored Scoring board.
Accessory: Antique brad

Welcome to Day 7 of my Artisan Award entries! This is the fourth card of the five I made and probably the simplest one. I wanted to used the chalkboard technique since it was so popular! For this technique, you heat embossed the image with White embossing powder and then use the White Craft ink and a sponge to make it look like a chalkboard. The background is made with little strip of papers from Comfort Café and Patio Party Designer series paper, that I cut to about 1/2″ and perfectly aligned! The stamp is from Vintage Verse (a Sale-a-bration set from last year.) I added a little flower from the flower trim and leaves were cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die and sponged with Soft Suede.
My favorite part was actually the little bird inside the card. I aligned the bird punch so that the printed paper pattern made his eye and beak. Do you like it?

Today’s card is another Owl card!!! The owl punch is one of my favorite punch! You can make so much with it (even tulips! click here to see how to do this!)
This card is all about circles, I used 5 different circle punches, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/4″, 1-3/4″ and 2-1/2″ for behind the owl. I randomly glued the circles on the background and ran it through the Square Lattice embossing folder. The little branch for the Owl is made with the Bird Builder punch, another of my favorite punch!

Here’s the Blossom Petal Punch one last time:
Here’s a card I just made using it. I made the tulips using two of the smaller petal sizes. Each petal was sponged with Calypso Coral ink. I also used the Bird Builder punch for the little leaves and the Itty Bitty punch pack for the small pink flowers. I’m pretty happy with the final result!

Lately my parents celebrated their 40th Anniversary! This called for a very special card! This is the card I made for them. As they both love birds, I thought that it would be a nice touch to incorporate birds inside my design! I used the Bird Builder punch for the birds, the Heart collection Framelits and 2 embossing folders, Elegant Lines (which is on sale right now, on the retiring list for $7.46) and Framed Tulips. I used Crumb Cake ink to sponge over the embossed parts as well as to outline the birds. A little rose from the Flower trim and the Crochet Trim complete the card.
