Owl in a Folded Frame

Now I hope this is an inviting photo - another fun workshop for the month of August. What in the brown shopping bag? Each attendees project was in the bag and it came in very handy for them to take all their projects home. Are you surprised I have a red vinyl tablecloth?
This is one of the projects made:
I am so glad this frame has a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers.........check it out. It is called "Folded Paper Frame".

Here's a closer view of the "frame" set at an angle on the card. I did adhere the frame but they are so stubborn, they won't stay down so I let them flap around and it just makes the card more dimensionals than intended.

Closer view of the stamped message which is popped with dimensionals:

To make the Owl:
(1) Chocolate Chip body
(1) Vest in Crumb Cake Sold CS - use SU Exclusive Dot Impression Folder
a pair of Rose Red Solid CS large Eyes
a pair of Very Vanilla Solid CS medium eyes
a pair of Black Solid CS for the smallest eyes
Assemble, using a 2 way glue pen, good rested eyes, and a pair of tweezers for the smallest black eyes. Pop with dimensionals and set aside.

To make this card, you will need:
(1) 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Rose Red Sold CS, on the 8-1/2" side. score @4-1/4"

(1) 4" x 5-1/2" Very Vanilla Solid CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Pumpkin Solid CS - use the Big Shot Dot Texturz Plate for the subtle dot background
(1) 4" x 4" Sweet & Sour DSP
Scrap So Saffron to punch leaf from the Two Step Bird Extra Large Punch (branch not in photo below)

Following the instructions from Split Coast stampers, the (1) 4" x4" DSP becomes a fabulous frame to "house" the punched owl.

  • Stamps: "Thank You" from Because I care (Hostess)
  • CS: Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin, Chocolate Chip, Black, Crumb Cake (Kraft) So Saffron, Sweet & Sour Specialty DSP
  • Ink: Rose Red
  • Accys: Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Two Step Bird Extra Large Punch, Two Step Owl Extra Large Punch, SU Exclusive Dot Impression Folder, SU Exclusive Background 1 Big Shot Texturz Plates, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen

Thank You for Stopping by today........stay tuned for a full week of projects from this workshop.........

Hi Patti!

I am impressed - you did finish creating all of the projects for your class! I know that it takes a tremendous amount of time to create and then prepare for something like this!

The table looks wonderful - and the project is great! Can't wait to see the other fun things you had planned!

Wishing you a happy day now that all of this has been accomplished! :<)

Hi Dolores,

Those metal shopping carts are sometimes available from Cost Plus. They have working wheels and can be stacked like the ones at the grocery store.
