Owl...ways Sending Hugs and Kisses!

Hero Arts Starring:  Big Eyes
   Inspired by Moxie Fab's highlighting of the new Papercrafts Stamp It 3 Ways issue and having fun creating places for Big Eyes the owl to inhabit.  In this version I stamped a background with a clear set from Hero to give a mod 60's/70's vibe since I always think of the jute macrame owls I made growing up.  I used Twinkling H2O's to highlight the eyes and topped with some bling.  Owl is embossed using the trick of stamping in VersaMark ink then in the dye ink color I needed along with clear powder.  I look forward to creating a whole set of these in different colors!
   Those of you who know me remember how much I love to use text as a background--usually repetitive stamping--and I wanted to put in some extra hugs and kisses with my clear alphabet set.  [It really comes in handy, and I usually have something unusual to say like in this card here!  And...wait for it...my first blog candy is to give away a copy of the new Hero Arts catalog!!  I won the lucky draw from Hero and already have one, so I thought I'd pass along the hugs to someone else!]
   But I think it's fun to work for it!  [I could get all political but I won't!]  Follow the link in this post to an older card of mine and leave a comment here on the blog to tell me what it means if you would like to be entered in the drawing for the new catalog!  [contest closes Saturday 12p.m. EST]  Nothing like a little scavenger hunt--another blast from the past--to go with this mod little owl!
   Make it a great day!

    I would LOVE to win the new catalog, I've seen so many cool cards with the new stamps, want to sit back and relax with a cup of tea and read the catalog.
    Awesome cards btw, fun idea to make personal cards with that background. Again, some great inspiration Deb!

  5. That owl is so cute and what a great way to use it, love your card. I think your Telelphone cardset shows your phoneno on the background, could that be what you mean? I'd love to win the HA catalogue, have only seen it online so far.

  6. I love the way you use repetetive stamping for backgrounds. I have started using your technique on scrapbook pages. Thanks so much for sharing all your great ideas! The reference to Pennsylvania 6-5000 is it because this is supposably the oldest phone number in NY which ties in nicely with the stamp set you used?

  8. Thanks so much to each of you who played along! I gave everyone who commented a slip in the drawing, and my son drew Bianca's name! Congratulations Bianca! The background comes from the Glenn Miller song called, "Pennsylvania 6-5000" or PE-6500 which is how telephone numbers were written in that era! I thought it was a fun background for the telephone stamp image!

    Thank you also for taking the time to visit my blog--it is always amazing for our family to know so many people from all over the world stop by to say hello! Go out and put your own stamp on life today!
