CASology Week 174: OWL

Hi! I’m very excited to share some cards with you today that were inspired by CASology’s Week #174 cue word:

I had a lot of fun making 4 cards that were inspired by this week’s cue word. All stamps and dies are from Papertrey Ink.

Here’s the 1rst card:Slide09

I used this owl photo as inspiration.

As is a trend with me, I had several ideas for different versions of this card. As I stamped, I kept getting an idea for another card! I have to say that can be distracting. Maybe I should keep a sketch book handy so I can scribble down ideas and not distract myself! πŸ˜‰

Here is my 2nd idea:


The 3rd idea: (I’d like to play this one at CASology this week.)Slide21

The 4rth version: I’d like to play this one at SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says Anything Goes and Word Art Wednesday’s week #211: Anything Goes.Slide8

When my friend, Cindy,Β  and I were visiting over Skype on Thanksgiving Day she suggested a slight change to this 4rth card. So, I have plans to change itΒ  a little and make a 5th version! πŸ™‚ Maybe I’ll do that sometime this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Would you like to see another card that I made using Papertrey Ink products? Please click here or on the photo below to be taken this my post for MIM #232.

  6. Melissa, I love all four designs…each one is fun and unique and very creative! All four are wonderfully clean and simple, too. Wonderful! I love the “hooray” sentiment (hoo hoo)! Thanks for joining in the fun at CASology this week!
