Owlways There For You

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday!  Have you all missed me?  I've missed you and I've missed stamping.  I started a new job on Wednesday so the creative mojo was drained right out of me.  I am behind on my monthly card traders group challenges, so it was time to catch up.  Here's what's sad, this was the challenge I issued!

But after having my coffee this morning I found some creative juices (and hope they continue to flow) and made this card.  This is a slider card - I found the tutorial on SCS and then Deb found another video by Dawn Griffith.  Ultimately, that video is the one I followed.  You can find it here.

I also made this for the There She Goes challenge which is a recipe:  Kraft card base, black white and a splash of color, dry embossing.  This was so much fun.  I won a $50 gift certificate from TSG so I snagged the You're a Hoot stamp set.  I love this set!

As I said, this is a double slider card....

So you pull the top white ribbon and the inside panels slide out.  This is so cool!  It took a little time to get how to do this, but I think once you've tried one - to make more will be easy.

Close up of the top panel.  I really love all the images that came in this set.

And here's the bottom panel.  Aren't those flowers adorable?

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections), Kraft, Dusty Durango (SU)
Stamps/Ink:  You're a Hoot (TSG), Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Rhubarb Stalk, Potters Clay, Desert Sand (Memento)
Tools:  3/4" circle punch, Scallop circle nesties (Spellbinder), circle cutters (CM), Cuttlebug, Perfectly Paisley embossing folder
Embellishments:  white grosgrain, rust satin ribbons (Offray)

I hope you like my card - it feels good to stamp again.  I think I better just do it the whole day while I'm on a roll, don't you?  LOL  I wish I could but unfortunately there's floors to vacuum, toilets to scrub and groceries to buy.  Enjoy your Saturday!
