Sale-a-bration is going strong in its final month of the year. Ten FREE gifts were added for February, and you can see all of them listed below. For today’s card, I used one of the original offers, Adorable Owls, plus two of the new offerings, which I will indicate.

Hoot the Adorable Owl


I began by stamping Hoot, one of the Adorable Owls, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After snipping Hoot free from the paper, I colored him with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, and Tahitian Tide for his eyes. Hoot asked for that color, because he said it was his favorite color of blue.


Next, I prepared his background by using a Blending Brush and Tahitian Tide Ink on Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) to make a “blue moon” as he requested. I accomplished this by creating a stencil with the largest Layering Circles Die, and laying this cardstock on top of the cardstock I colored. 

After coloring, I embossed the layer with the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder, because Hoot said he wanted “lots of sky.” Then, he asked for a Smoky Slate card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) to match his feathers. He said I should point out that this embossing folder is now FREE during Sale-a-bration, but be sure to use the SAB number, 164423, because it differs from the catalog number. 


The third Sale-a-bration item is the label Hoot chose for his perch. It’s from the Eden Die Set, which is combined with the Eden’s Garden Stamp Set in a Bundle, #163999. You can see the bundle below; what a great FREE gift!

I cut the label from Brights 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Gorgeous Grape, which I topped with Basic White Cardstock, cut with a Potted Succulents Die. Hoot thought it fit nicely with “It’s your day!” from his Adorable Owls Stamp Set.

Hoot was proud of his tie, and said I could make it look really spiffy, if I “paper-pieced” it. He said to stamp his entire body on the Gorgeous Grape designer paper, and then fussy cut his tie, and attach it with tiny Dimensionals. 

Now, Hoot can’t wait to show off his card!


I was inspired by TGIF.
