Design Team Card by Rebecca! Retro OWLS!!

Here is the latest card from our design team member Rebecca!
She said ~
Today I used the a super cute 3 owl border from sideshow stamps! To create the texture on the card stock I misted brown tissue paper with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels) and crinkled 3-4 times. I then adhered it to the card stock with a bit of Tombow, and then inked the edges with Chocolate Chip ink (Stampin' Up). I grabbed some brown bakers twine and wound it around the card.I stamped the owl image on an oval and colored it using Water Color Pencils (Stampin' Up). I printed the owl sentiment on my pc and hand cut the banner.

This card is also by Lisa F. She used our coy fairy rubber stamp.

These next crafts are by Rebecca J! She said "This week I used the Pinstripped Black Widow from Sideshow Stamps...I love how creepy this spider is! I thought it would be fun to pair with with some cutesy twine....and a glittery web effect. For this project, I used metallic silver embossing powder (American Crafts) cut my stamped image and adhered it with a foam tab (American Crafts). To create the glittery web I sprayed my black card stock with stick and spray (CC International) and then sprinkled it with bridal embossing tinsel (Ranger). I also inked the edges of the purple card stock with basic black ink (Stampin' Up). To finish it off I tied a bow using orange and white bakers twine. The wooden blocks are recycled Stampin' Up wood mounts for stamps that I converted to clear mounts. "

"I also used the Pinstripped black widow to create this quick and easy Halloween card using card stock scraps, white pigment ink (Pamass) and my printer..."
