OOOH, we are finally here! The big day! The August Release blog hop! Are you as excited as I am to find out just what goodies are included with all the fun stamp sets you've seen sneak peeks of so far on the Pretty Cute Stamps blog?! If you came here from Dawn's blog you are in the right place - If you want to start at the beginning, head over to the Pretty Cute Stamps blog.
I have one more card to show you before I show you the new stamps! (no peeking!) I just love this cute owl from the Chick With Brains stamp set. For this card I put Distress Stains in pinks, yellows and oranges on my craft sheet and, after white heat embossing my owl, I spritzed the stain and smooshed my watercolour paper face first on my craft sheet. After it dried I coloured my owl in with Distress Markers and moved them around with a paintbrush and some water until I was happy with the effect. I added a few Stickles and some black Enamel Accents to the eyes. Then I layered my watercolour paper over a patterned paper background. I white heat embossed the adorable sentiment on a handcut banner and popped it up with foam dots.
I popped up the wings to hold my pinwheel that I made from the bow stamp included with the set and added a brad to the centre.
Inside I added another pinwheel and a strip of paper to match the front.
So, how cute is this set?!!!
