Cleaning My Craft Desk: Owl Always Love You

 I have been working to clean off my craft desk again.  You know how this happens, you see something and have to work on it. In my case, a lot of what is on my desk is partially finished, even to the point of being 75% finished.  Or, you have stamps out on your desk you just have to work with.

So this is my new blog series, what I made when cleaning my craft desk…

This is a super cute and simple card.  

I cut the heart from the patterned paper and then just flipped it over to the other side to get the tree print.  I popped it up instead of inlaying it.  I LOVE this burrowing owl image!  They have so much personality.  I just used Versafine Ink cubes to ink them up in two colors and then added a touch more color with markers.

Bloom Where You are Planted

 I just recently got a stamp set from the newest release from Blank Page Muse called Gothic Garden Flowers.  It is so cute and fun.  I immediately thought they would look nice over some mixed media backgrounds.

This background was made with a gelli plate and a daisy embossing folder.  It just has a subtle texture to it.  I just stamped over the flowers in a nice black ink and it just pops so nicely.  This reminds me of a spring rain, which I am looking forward to.

This stamp set is available here:
