Hello There – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #620

Hi There,

It’s laundry day here at my house, lol.  Just kidding.’

Hope you had a terrific weekend.  Mine was spent dodging rain drops here in Ohio.  I’m searching for the instructions on how to build an arc.  IT HAS RAINED SOOOOO MUCH!

Anyhow, I have this cute little card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch.  Check out the tutorial below.


I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my beginner brayer videos.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT


Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Happy Day (item #130297)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Old Olive and Strawberry Slush.  Also a scrap of striped Designer Series Paper.

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, Stampin’ Write Markers (Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler), Stripes Embossing Folder, Deco Labels Framelits, Big Shot Machine, Owl Punch, Word Window Punch, Linen Thread, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Brayer

Punched the vest portion using the Owl Punch out of a scrap of striped designer series paper.

Cut a “v” in the bottom to split the legs.

Punched a Word Window punch from a scrap of DSP.

Cut the end off for the pocket and two like stripes for the shoulder straps.

If you don’t have a dark line at the top of the pocket use a marker to put in a dark stripe at the top.  I used a Cherry Cobbler marker.  This helps you pocket show up better.

Added the pocket and the shoulder straps using glue.

Added two dots for buttons using a Basic Black marker.

Die cut the second to the largest Deco Label Framelit out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Machine.

Swiped the Tempting Turquoise ink pad lightly directly over the top of the card stock to create the sky.  Leave a bit of white showing through for your clouds.  If you don’t like your first attempt, flip the card stock over and do it again.  :)

Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock to create my grass.  This is done with a pouncing motion.

Added Linen Thread and adhered the ends to the back of the card stock using Mini Glue Dots.

Cut one shoulder strap shorter than the other so the pants would look like they are blowing in the wind.  Added the little pants using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Day set using Stazon Jet Black ink and then added dots behind the sentiment using a Basic Black marker.  (I love this stamp set, it has the best sentiments)

Cut the largest Deco Framelit out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Machine.  Added the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Old Olive card stock and embossed it using the Stripes embossing folder and the Big Shot Machine.

Brayed Old Olive ink over the card stock to darken the raised lines.

Added a Whisper White card stock base and a Strawberry Slush panel.  Also added Tempting Turquoise candy dots.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Have a terrific Monday!

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
