More Cosy Critters

Hello, Crafters.

I'm sorry that occasionally you receive a blank post from me - twice this week! 

This happens because I enter the title and press enter, and then enter again.

Unfortunately by doing that the cursor moves across to Publish! 

I wish Blogger would change this - it'd be easier than me remembering not to do it! LOL!!

Anyway, I'm off to the Gingham Goose Craft Market at the Hayes Village Hall shortly - full details below in yesterday's post.

Yesterday I used the Cosy Critters Stamp Set for today's card. 

I started wikh a card base of Very Vanilla Cardstock (CS) then a layer of Basic Grey CS and a top layer of a snowflake design from This Chistmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I stamped two owls on Very Vanilla  CS using Basic Grey Archival Ink and punched them out using the Owl Builder Punch.

I stamped the owls again, once in Cherry Cobbler Ink and once in Garden Green Ink.

I fussy cut both scarves and adhered to the owls using Tombow.

I dry embossed a layer of Very Vanilla using the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder and layered it onto a piece of Basic Grey Cardstock. 

Using my Basic Grey and Garden Green Marker Pens, I painted the branch stamp from the Best Birds Stamp Set. 
I tried doing this to the branch in Cosy Critters but it didn't work very well because the branch and leaves are solid images.

I chose the Tis the Season sentiment from last year's Peaceful Pines Stamp Set that has been brought forward. 

I die cut it using the Layering Circle Punches and layered it on a slightly larger scalloped circle I had die cut using a scallop die from the same stamp set. 

I adhered the DSP onto the Basic Grey CS layer using Tombow and wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler ribbon around the centre. 

Then I adhered the embossed Vary Vanilla CS and adhered it to the smaller Basic Grey CS layer. 

Then I adhered this to the card front using Tombow. 
Using Glue Dots, I adhered the branch to the embossed layer and then I added the the owls using Dimensionals. 

I also added the sentiment using Dimensionals.

Well, I'd better shoot off now, otherwise I'll be late. Some things never change! I hope you have a great weekend.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. Another cute card! And a novel idea to use the cable knit embossing folder backing for them against the snowflake background too! Like your colours too! and the red ribbon is the perfect touch! TFS

    1. Hi, Geraldine. I really love owls. I think they're cuteness personified, although rather chilly looking here! LOL! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  2. Such a cute card. Love those owls and the cable knit backgground.

    1. Hi, Kristin. I agree with you, these owls really are the cutest! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
