Autumn Owl Lantern

I love making 3D and home decor items, but I just don't do it all that often.  I am going to try and change that.  I started last week by making the pumpkin.  This week I made an autumn owl-shaped lantern, which I am going to put on display with my pumpkin.

It lights up real nice, even with just a tea light.  I also added some vellum behind the open parts of the body to soften the glow of the light.

Unicorn Fantasy

Here is a fun fantasy inspired birthday card for you today:

I used stamps and metal dies to create the images and elements of the card.  The images are colored using Chameleon markers.

The unicorn is adhered with foam tape for some added dimension.

I added Stickles to the hooves, horn, and star and Wink of Stella to the hair for a touch of glitter and sparkle.  The sentiment is heat embossed.

The stars in the corners also have Wink of Stella on them.  I also added some white gel pen doodling to the purple scallop mat.

Tropical Birthday

Here is a fun tropical birthday card for you today!  I used only Jaded Blossom stamps and dies for this.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.  The leaves are inked with cracked pistachio, lucky clover, and evergreen bough Distress Inks.

I used squeezed lemonade, candied apple, and aged mahogany Distress Inks to achieve my coloring of the flower.  I fussy cut the image out once colored.  The stamen is covered with yellow and fruit punch Stickles and the top part of it is adhered with foam tape for a little added dimension.

I gave it a fun tropical sentiment, too!

3D Autumn Pumpkin

I decided I wanted to make some sort of 3D project today, so I made this cute little pumpkin from SVG Cuts.  It is part of the Bedtime Stories kit.

I inked up all the pieces with Distress Ink.  The leaves with peeled paint, the stem with vintage photo, and the pumpkin with carved pumpkin.

The lid comes off to make a nice treat box or bag.  However, you could glue the lid shut and have it be a pretty piece of home decor.
