Owl-rageous Thanks

Hello friends!  We’re finally on the last Friday of February!  Yay!

Although we’ve had snow in our forecast recently, I’m feeling Spring will be in the air soon and I really look forward to it along with all of the pretty flowers and green grass!  So today, I’m sharing a card I’ve made using this adorable Pairables set from Digi Doodle Studios:


Isn’t this little owl the cutest?!  I love how he has his little wings out for a hug!  I’ve used several of the images from the “Owl-rageous” Pairables set to create the scene on my card.  (Be sure to check out the bottom of this post to see all the images included in the set!)   I have used Word.doc on my computer to arrange and size the different images where I wanted them for my scene and printed it out to color.  I’ve also printed out the flower image from the set along with the sentiment separately to cut out for my design.

As you can see, I’ve taken the flower image and sized it differently and arranged it around the stump for the scene.  I’ve also used it to cut it out separately to attach to the twine next to the sentiment as well as the twine bow at the bottom.

I’ve printed out the sentiment, cut it out and then cut the fish tails on each end and ink blended with brown ink around it.  I’ve matted it with the same brown cardstock that I’ve layered the image panel on and it’s also the base of my top folding A2 sized card.

I’ve pulled out some textured woodgrain cardstock as well as the Spring Plaid papers from my Lawn Fawn stash.  I thought the woodgrain and Spring-like colors worked well for this cute owl.  I’ve finished it off with some clear sequins.


Here’s a closer look at the coloring I’ve done on this cutie!  I’ve used the W tones to color him in and then the E20s to color the stump.  I also end up going for the G24, G21 and G20 for coloring my grass.  I love the bright Spring green it gives I think.  I highlighted his cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.

You can also see a subtle cloud line behind him.  I’ve used the MFT Cloud Stencil with my ink blending tool and Tumled Glass distress ink to create the background.

You can see that I’ve wrapped some twine around the center of the card where the two different papers meet as well as wrapped around each corner of the image panel.  This is where I decided to add the cut out flowers on each end.


I feel like this owl with my arms open and ready to take in all of Spring when it comes and thank Mother Nature for bringing it around! LOL!  How about you?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and that you’ll take a look at this darling Pairables set as it can be used in so many different ways!  I had so much fun creating with it!  You can check it out below and click on the photo to purchase/view in the store:

  1. What a sweet little owl perched atop his tree stump! Darling soft colors and just SO SWEET, Vicki! The pastel plaid background brings out even more sweetness. There you go again with the amazing tiny twine bows (this one in the corner is extra cute) and the little strands in the top corner with those tee-tiny flowers is BEAUTIFUL! I’m casing that twine idea for sure! Maybe my fingers can do that option. Why had I never thought of doing twine like that? Great texture! The banner “thank you” is a beautiful way of putting an even more imaginative, feathered spin on the card. It’s beautiful, Vicki! hugs, de
