Hehehe!!! I can’t get over the new Hootie Patootie stamp set!!! How cute are these owls?! (I also can’t stop saying Hootie Patootie haha). To create this card I started by stamping and coloring in that sweet little owl and then die cutting it with it’s Coordinating Dies. I mounted her on top of the smallest of the Silly Stitched Squares (I trimmed off the loop portion) and stamped the Grad Class sentiment on the side.

I fussy cut the hat for the owl out of a separate sheet of paper. 🙂 The background stamping was created using the raindrops from the Hootie Patootie stamp set and a sentiment from the Wreath of Roses stamp set.

My second card is a clean and simple design really showing off the beauty in these new Pretty Painted Alphabet Stamps. (I truly think these might be my favorite alpha stamps… they are SO easy to stamp!). I repeatedly stamped the letters in a light color and then popped up the color versions after cutting them with their Coordinating Dies. I love this card 🙂

Here is a quick look at the new products I used today:

    Cute cards! I really love the graduation card (I’ve got a nephew
    graduating next month – time flies!) and of course, I love birds,
    so the owl is a favorite. And the “thanks” card is super creative.

    Great cards Stephanie. I love this alpha set with the dies, this is something I don’t have yet (and I am glad I waited) as this is more to what I have been looking for (and hadn’t found yet) in an alphabet set! I am so happy to see it used here. TFS!

    I really love the owl set. It is just so cute. I like how you showed the graduation variation of it. The painted letters really are so cool and versatile! It’s hard to see the faded letters on your second card, but I love that they are there. In person, or on a better computer screen maybe, I bet that card really stands out!

  19. Mary Holshouser April 4, 2017 / 7:39 am

    Love that you can add pieces to the owls.
    The graduate is darling.
