Just thought you’d like to see what a parliament of owls looks like (no kidding, I looked it up). I don’t even know how long it took to make these – lots of punching, piecing and gluing – but lots of fun too.

We made two cards in the May workshop. The first is an absolutely beautiful card I cased from Lisa Martz. I cut out the window with a paper cutter and then scored around it. I used the little piece I cut out to make the lattice piece. No waste of paper. The stamp set is Strength & Hope. Stampin’ Up! is donating $2 for every set sold for breast cancer research.

The second is made with the Flower Garden embossing folder, using markers on the folder itself to add color. This is a case of nancy litrell’s card, but mine didn’t look as nice as hers. I guess I didn’t get enough ink on the folder. I tried it twice and decided using a sponge to color it worked better. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. I accidentally used a retired punch on this one.

One more fuchsia-adorned box – this one was made with the Matchbook Box die, an exclusive Stampin’ Up! design. I used my favorite jumbo wheel, Very Vintage, to stamp the design on Crumb Cake card stock with Crumb Cake ink. The phrase is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The punched fuchsias came from Valita.

I used this box to hand deliver a gift to a very dear friend. This is another reason why I love paper crafting and Stampin’ Up! The box is just as much a gift as what’s inside!

Here’s another special request for Mother’s Day and I like it so much I wanted to keep it! I used the Like it a Latte set (retired). The cups are stamped, embossed, cut from DSP – I made each of them unique. I stamped the vase (Petal Cone die again) with coffee beans and added ribbon. Mother’s Day stamp from All Year Cheer (ret) on Very Vanilla, punched with the circle and circle scallop punches. This just goes to show you can put anything in a tree!

This was another special request. I stamped the birds using the Elements of Style set and craft ink, then embossed with clear EP mixed with a little glitter. The flowers are from Vintage Vogue and the vase of course is made with the Petal Cone die and the Elegant Bouquet EB. The sentiment is from one of the retired All Year Cheer sets. What else can go in a tree? Stay tuned!

If you can catch them, you can put them in a vase! I made the butterflies with the SU exclusive Beautiful Wings embosslit and put them in a vase made with the Petal Cone die, embossed with the new Flower Garden embossing folder. Added a little ribbon and a couple of non-SU half pearls and there you have it – a bouquet of butterflies.
