Beware of "The Owl"

Thanks for stopping by today. My daughter and I went to the store this morning searching for some good deals, but didn't find too many. We are going to try another part of town this evening (since the boys are camping). I did get some textured card stock at Joanns for $1.88 a pack and a new sanding block. I had to give it a try and check out what I made.

I embossed this black core paper I have had and then used my new sanding block to create this spooky effect. Looking forward to using it for some other projects.
Materials:
K&Company ~ KP Halloween Pad
Recollections Colored Core Paper Pad
Hoot 'n Holler cartridge ~ owl cut at 4"
October 31st cartridge ~ BEWARE, moon, and bats cut at 1/2"
graveyard embossing folder (see below)
sanding cube
purple gems
black and orange ribbon

Stay Creative,

  4. Adorable card!! Love the texture and that owl is adorable!!
    To answer your question from yesterday I got my Woolies from our local stamp store..this store is my all time favorite~Buffalo Stamps and Stuff and the owner always has the things the big stores dont carry. Anyways the woolies were 5.25$ marked 50% off...a great deal I think. and all they are, are felt embellishments. I would be more than glad to pick some up for you if you would like?
