August SOTM

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month (SOTM)
Blog Hop! 

 Check with your consultant to get this 17 stamp set - What a Hoot

If you came here from Kathy Burrow's Blog  you are on the right track. If you would like to see a complete list of SOTM bloggers click here. We have Sixty Seven consultants who have projects to share with you.

Love the Owls!  My son will be heading off to Oregon Institute of Technology in September and they are the Hustlin' Owls!  So, this set will be getting a lot of use in the future (I am thinking care boxes with labels on the goodies).

I put together a side pull pop up card.  This is a unique pop up which happens when the card is pulled flat:

I used paper piecing on the owl to give it some texture and love the eyelash look using the "cog" circle around the eyes. The eyes and the birthday hat have green enamels for a little bling!  With age comes wisdom  . . . is from the Just A Number stamp set.  The paper is from the Jubilee Paper Packet.

Here is the card opened (thanks to my hubby for assisting with the photo):

Here is the card unfolding (as you pull the sides away from the middle and flatten the card, the second owl appears):

  1. Such a clever card. Love this with Jubilee.

  2. Love the pop-up idea and your paper piecing.

  3. Love your pop-up and the the paper pieced mask.

  4. Cute card! Love the patterned papers that you chose to use.

  5. Cute card! I love that you made a birthday card instead of a fall card with this set.

  6. What a clever card! Of all of the pop up cards I have seen, I have not seen this one! Turned out great & best of luck to your son headed off to college!

  7. Wow, what a neat idea to do a pop up card, that's so cute!

  8. Love this card and would like to have the directions for it. Where can I find them?


I appreciate your feedback - it helps me grow!
