Top 10 OWH cards in 2011

I truly enjoyed doing the Safari Dreams series. It was hard to choose my other favorites. A couple of these were quite simple but they just struck my fancy

A little mix of cards

The first card I made for my daughters birthday. I used one of her interesting stamps. I colored in with a lot of Spica glitter pens because she likes glitter.

The next 2 cards were made with my new Hero Arts clock stamp. It stamps an entire card front so I cut it down to fit the card. The sentiment is computer generated. These cards will be for OWH

OWH-Hero Arts thank you

For this card I used OWH sketch #25. I used Hero Arts set #CL231. I colored with Copics and used a Sakura Glaze pen on parts of the owl. I cut out the colored images, stamped the owl again on cardstock to get the feet and popped up  the colored image. I think it makes a nice cheerful card.

OWH skip

The plan was to CASE a card on the skip. I used OWH sketch challenge #98 like Marianne did. I am not lucky enough to yet have the new Hero Arts stamps made in conjunction with OWH. I did have a sheet of Graphic 45 paper that was all clocks. I cut out one and added it to these old Basic Grey papers. I added some cream color Pearl Pen drops to go with the vintage feel. I made a computer sentiment. I have a lot of these clock cutouts so I will be using more of them in the future. I also bought a Hero Arts stamp of a full page of clocks. I need to get that inked up.

Personal Christmas cards.

Three different looks for the same image. This is a stamped image gifted to me. I colored with Copics. The snowflake paper on the last card has flocked flakes on velum. Very elegant looking

OWH sketch challenge #99

A quick card for the 2 year old great Grandaughter. She can carry it around and destroy it, no big deal. The striped paper is a card base from a box of bases I bought last year. Very high quality stock. The plaid is from the same box and I cut it down. The image? From my Hallmark card CD. I printed out the card and cut out the image. I glossed up the cane with red Sakura Glaze pen. I am pressed for time.

OWH-Our Daily Bread challenge for December

The challenge was to make a card using the sentiment as the main focus. I considered this a masculine card but I guess it works for ladies too. The sentiment is a digi from Create With TLC. I mounted it on silver paper and added the heart brads. Our Daily Bread Designs is very kindly paying for the shipping on a large box of cards for every 25 cards linked. Last month there were enough for 2 boxes. Thank you very much.

OWH- Love card

I used Basic Gray papers from the Sugar Rush line. After stamping the sentiment I went over it with a black glaze pen to make it shiny and very black.
