Deer and Owl Friends in the woods

Hi to all my dear friends,

Well it is time for the lovely monthly technique to learn something new!

This  Months Technique Challenge across at

You get an extra chance to win when you use a SweetStamps image on your creation.

**All of these techniques and more can be found on the TUTORIALS page of our website** 

Well here is my take on it!

I made a base card out of Cream Card Stock
I layered with Kraft Paper
I used a corner punch to punch the wedges on the four corners of my DP were I added 
my Brown String

How I made my Own Stamps 

The dies I used is a couple of SweetCutz Dies, 
Owl Friends and Classy Deer
I used Funky Foam to cut the dies out to create my stamp

To make my foam stamp stick I used this spray to adhere my
Stamps to the acrylic blocks

The Kissing Technique

With the stamps I made I used SweetStamps Shades:
 Buttercup and Brownie
To do the Kiss Technique I Stamped up my stamp with the
light color first and then with my small accent stamp from Decorative Elements in the darker shade
I did this with my Owls and my Deer.

I used the same die's again and cut out my Images after I done the Kissing Technique

Then I had to put my Card together!

I layered Kraft Paper onto Cream Card and then onto 
Brown Handmade paper and adhere my Owls and my Deer to it
I cut another set of dies out of Brown Handmade Paper and just shadow my main Kissed images
I used the lovely Die from SweetCutz Elegant Leaves and cut the leaves out of Handmade Brown Paper and Tan Card
I framed the top left of the Owls with the Leave Dies and 3 S Roses and finished off with a Pearl
Added another 3 Pearls above the Deer

I made a bouquet with roses and Satin flowers and added string,
Die cut leaves, Skeleton Leaves and a bow made with Natural Hessian

I had fun with this new Kissing Technique I hope to go and try it!!
