Hi, Stamper. Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Sale-A-Bration 2023 Blog Hop and my post about the Adorable Owls!

This month, our blog hop theme is Sale-A-Bration 2023! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2023 Adorable Owls easel card box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My first project is an Easel Card / Treat Box that holds four Ferrero Rocher candies.  This adorable box with an adorable owl, wrapped in Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper makes a great Valentine’s Day gift. The tree limb and leaves are from the Sweet Songbirds stamp set. My Adorable Owl is colored with Stampin’ Blends.

My second project with the Adorable Owls is a card.  I used Early Espresso cardstock, dry embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder to create a tree and placed one of the owls inside. The other owl is flying around over a blended ink background. I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to color the Adorable Owls.

My third and final project for today’s Sale-A-Bration blog hop is a simple fun fold card. This card is built on a Balmy Blue card base and decorated with Country Gingham Designer Series Paper. My Adorable Owl is the focal point and is stamped onto a Basic White circle die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies. This time my Adorable Owl is colored with the Watercolor Pencils and blended with the Blender Pens. This gives a softer look and works well with the soft colors.

Inside the card, I stamped another owl and sentiment in Early Espresso ink. A little Garden Green ink was blended along the bottom so that my owl wasn’t floating. It’s “grounded” and looks to be standing on grass.

I explain more about how I made these items in the videos below.
