DAY 14: This marks two weeks of blogging daily! I have sooooo many cards you’ve never seen and if I spent more time blogging and less time creating art, I’d be caught up.

Remember World Card Making Day? This was one of the 26 cards I made that “craft-ernoon.” I used some adorable “Haunted Manor” paper from Doodlebug Design and some ribbon from Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts for this “H-owl-oween” card. I also used a button with some orange and white embroidery floss. Yes, I do like to make new words by mashing two together.

blog-owl h-owl-oweenI achieved the scalloped green and white polka dot trim by punching paper with my Scallop Border Punch. The black dots around the scalloped circle and the owl’s eyes were made glossy with Liquid Glass, which is an incredibly versatile product because it’s a wonderful adhesive and a fantastic accent that makes things shiny! Speaking of scallops a moment ago, scalloped potatoes sure sound delicious.

blog-owl halloween I bumped up part of the orange ribbon so the owl could be seen better. How did I do that? I stuck a glue dot to the ribbon and pushed it right where I wanted it. Think of glue dots as hairspray for ribbon without the mess. 🙂 Glue dots set the ribbon right where you want it to stay put!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
