I am in love with this new little bird die cut, and I expect he’ll be popping up all over the Crimson Owl Creations Blog all year! I hope you enjoy this little fellow as much as I do!

Christmas in the City

Today I am a guest designer over at Unique laser Designs (ULD), where they feature beautiful projects created with wooden and cork laser cut embellishments. It’s exciting to work with another dimension of card making and paper layering that wooden embellishments provide. You can see all the details over at Unique Laser Designs (ULD) here:

Colour Q Challenge #268

cqc2681

Imagine my surprise when the inspiration photo for this week’s Colour Q Challenge is a Vera Bradley Bag! I LOVE Vera, and I love feeling inspired by the rich autumn palette this week. When I think Vera, I think of super lush, full designs loaded with color and design. But this week, I focused on the colors in a clean and simple, delicate little sunflower, capturing the last few touches of color before the winter snows arrive.

Addicted to CAS Challenge #52: Sketch

IMG_0972-wm

Addicted to CAS is having a fun sketch challenge this week, and I thought it would be a great time to bring out my new fancy little bird die! The Chickadee Dimensional is from Dee’s Distinctively, sitting inside the Massa Leaf Frame from Poppystamps. The sentiment , a shiny golden 1 from Typewriter Numbers from Memory Box, and the Peace, Love, Joy Tags from Poppystamps, reveal a secret surprise from a true love on the first day of Christmas! Add a few pears, berries and holly details and you have a wonderful holiday card.

Pretty Little Studio: Sketch Challenge

Pretty Little Studio has a beautiful Sketch Challenge for November! I think I was influenced more by the shapes than the colors, using a softer coral and yellow palette.

I wanted to create a card that reflected bright thoughts of home – -a theme I have been greatly inspired by since the end of the summer. My thoughts always return to home. You can play along with Pretty Little Studios right here: http://prettylittlestudio.com/plsblog/
