Owl Card And Fun Wall Hanging - SRM Stickers

Good morning!!  Can you tell I have had lots of fun playing with my SRM Stickers??  I have two more projects to share with you today that incorporate them.  The first one is an Owl card that I created for the Etsy Inspired Challenge (sponsored this week by SRM).  The challenge was to go to Dollbirdies shop on Etsy and find something that inspires you and create a card from it.  It wasn't hard to do because I actually thought up many ideas from the lovely passport wallets and bags on there.  This is the card that I decided to make (or the one that jumped out of my head first).  ;)

A little close up of the little bit of detail I added to the owl and branch with a fine tipped stylus and used a little bit of Tim Holtz Distress ink on the edges and the embossed background.....

Here is my inspiration:

Now, I do have a confession to make.....this is the FIRST time I have used my Create A Critter cartridge and I have had it for 9 months ::GASP::  I know.  I know.  That doesn't happen very much with my cartridges, but I absolutely loved the images on this cart when it first came out and I *thought* I would use it all the time for projects with my kids, but this is the first time it has seen use in my Cricut machine.  Well, now that I can see how cute the images are cut out and how easy they were to layer together, you bet I will be using it more often.

SRM Stickers teamed up with Cosmo Cricket this week and so I had the wonderful opportunity to play with the awesome new lines.  I used Social Club on this wall hanging of my cutie kids:

  16. Very sweet the glitter dots.

  17. I would love to use this card as inspiration for a birthday card I need to make, as I have the CAC cartridge. I need to know though which embossing folder did you use on the owl's body as it's perfect for an owl or any bird really? Am I right to assume that you used the woodgrain folder for the background of the card?


Thanks for visiting my blog. I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. ;)
