A little home for my owl

HousewarmingPartyLogo31

Catherine Pooler is having a housewarming party for her new website! And it's not only a party on her website, we're invited to celebrate with her!

I've found another lovely owl and this time... it has a home! I just couldn't resist this cuty and it's perfect for the ’home-theme’. I had some patterned paper that reminded me of little colorful raindrops, but since she as her own shelter as a home she wouldn't get hurt by that ;). I've added some ribbon, fabric and sequin flowers to the card and a dashed line to finish it.

Nothing can separate

A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to 'Bible Journaling'. I love to see what other people make in their Bibles (there's a facebook 'journaling bible community' where you can see/share images) but I'm a bit to much of a perfectionist to draw in my Bible... So I decided to start an art journal for the verses that inspire me. Today I started the first one in my new journal! I love this verse and it was a part of my testimony when I got baptized. It's a great reminder that nothing can separate us from God, whatever we do or whatever we go through. God is there. And His love will surround us. That's something to remember :).

For this page I used a combination of distress inks (for watercoloring the background), distress markers (coloring in the words and border), a pencil and a black fineliner.

Hey Chickie! - patterned papers

Maybe you've already noticed it, but I'm a fan of patterned papers. Some might say I'm a hoarder but let's just call me a huge fan ;). I have two drawers of my cabinet dedicate to patterned papers. I limited myself to the 6x6 paper pads because otherwise it would take up way to much space (and since I'm mostly using them for cards 6x6 is just a great size). And I just found out that Virginia has a challenge about patterned papers. Hey, I just couldn't skip this one :).

So here's my take. A card with a large patterned paper as a base, it has a scalloped edge that's just cute on it's own :). I used my papersmooches Chubby Chums stamps again and added som pearls to finish this card. It's pretty CAS because the patterned paper does most of the work, but that's what I like about patterned papers :).

Cute Chubby Cat

I have another cute Paper Smooches card to share with you all today. I love their chubby chums stamps, they're so cute! For this one I've used the chubby cat and the matching 'you're purrrfect' stamp. Love the playfull lettering on this stamp! And with a cat... I had to use some birds too ;). I've used some lovely patterned papers (the bird were already on the paper) and colored the cat with some distress markers and water. To finish it I added a litlle bit of blue/white twine and voila, another cute card!

Bright and shiny on saturday

Normally I don't write two posts a day, but I wanted to do some challenges this weekend so this is the second post ;).

For this card I've used some striped patterned paper with some glitters and sequins as a base. I diecut the image of the owl in this pattern and stamped the owl inside of it. I cut a little part out of the background to get some room for the sentiment. With my first try for the owl I stamped it directly on the card. I wanted some brigt colors so I colored it with my distress markers. But when I adhered everything on the card I just didn't like the way the owl was colored... So I decided to stamp the owl again on some watercolor paper and to color it with my distress markers and some water this time. I think this one was more suitable for the card so I cut it out and glued it on top of the other owl. The sentiment and the owl are from Papersmooches, the Chubby Chums set.

I've used the sketch from Crazy for CAS and I made a bright and cheerful card for the Heidi's Birthday! (and I used the clear stamps from papersmooches for the challenge). 
So I'm linking this one up to Crazy for CAS and the Simon Says Stamp wednesday challenge.
