Here I have the owls all dancing across the top of one of the Grand Greetings. Die cutting with the coordinating die set and popping them up instead of just stamping on a single layer really bring this design to life. Did you notice the party hats?! I was so excited about this! At first I intended to draw some tiny ones and then I notice the one little feathered "ears' would be perfect, so I stamped out a few more of those and colored and cut! Now it's a party!! Grand Greetings is free with your purchase of $75 or more. Love of the size and fonts! I think the big printed block letters will be great for masculine cards, too. :)
I am crazy about the coffee drinker's content little expression! Again I used one of the Grand Greetings and popped him up over a Kraft base. Since I did all the other owls in realistic earth tones on my first card, I thought it would be fun to use pinks on this one, to go with the mug.

This is such a gorgeous border! Whether you use it portrait or landscape style, it fills up a card with its beauty. I colored and splattered this with Spectrum Noir markers,without blending, just dabbing in bits here and there, for a more watercolored look. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, and Innocent Pink, and I used the die for the scalloped fancy border. I finished it with some black enamel dots and an adhesive pearl.
Here I heat embossed the border and sentiment in gold on a GKD Pure Luxury White mat and popped it up on white card base. I added some pearls to the center. Nothing more is needed, it is such an elegant stamp!
