Masculine gift card holder

Time for something for the male. I found a tutorial on youtube; a quite easy project.

You can also use these gift card holder as a tea bag holder. You may have to adjust the position of the inside by adhering the holder (brown card stock) deeper into the pocket.

Owls inside and out ATC #1

Challenge: create one owl inspired ATC and then send it in an owl inspired envelope.

My first ATC came out so, so cute😊 I received the background of this ATC from a swapper. It is created using the shaving creme technique.

The owl is cut at 2". The brown base of the owl is in fact a greeting card with double sides, but I cut the left side out. So I ended up with the base for the owl. To make a quirky owl I used patterned card stock for her body part and yellow for her belly. I used the pink card stock to add to the base card for a sturdier base ATC card. I used the ink embossing technique on the edges of this ATC for more depth. ATC completed!

This is the second quirky owl for the owl inspired envelope. Isn't he cute? I cut this second owl at 3,5". Still have to add this cutie to an envelope, but now it is time for my three week vacation. TO BE CONTINUED😙

Handmade colouring book postcard #5

I'm using a digital image "Heathers hobbie haven". It is a digital image I just received through email sent by Whimsy stamps. I also used clear stamps to hand stamp and fill the empty spaces on the postcard. This time I decided to use colouring pencils to colour the printed image.
