Snowy Owl

Published by at 12 15 am under Inkadinkado,Winter Cards

This has to be a quick post tonight – I won’t bore you with details. I justgot a few new setsby Inkadinkado, my first sets by Inka actually, and whena friendtold me about the sketch and contest that Jacksonbelle is having, well, of COURSE, I had to play!!! So here you have it:


The card is 5.5″ square. The blue panel is embossed with Iridescent Ice butall the rest of the glitter is glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds, and I don’t know why the blue of the glue pen is showing through on the photo because it isn’t IRL — also the sheer ribbon IS navy blue just like the paper! The snowflake is from the Ice Crystal die for the Cuttlebug, purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments, cut out of chipboard. LOVE that die!!!

  • Stamps: Winter Birds by Inkadinkado, Baroque Motifs by SU

  • Paper: PTI White and SU Night of Navy

  • Ink: Versa Mark and SU Night of Navy

  • Accessories: Sheer Ribbon, PetiteOval Nestabilities by Spellbinders, Cuttlebug and Ice Crystal Die, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Brad, Mounting Tape

Thanks so much for looking!!! We’ll all be back on Friday with our Stamp Simply Challenge — a fun one again!!! Hope you can join us!

    I knew when I bought that set of winter birds that they would make beautiful cards. You showed me that I was right. This is gorgeous. I think the owl is my favorite image in the set. (Reminds me of Hedwig from Harry Potter!) Anyway, I love what you did with it.
