Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Owl Animated Card

  Welcome to our monthly hop!

We're excited to share our creativity with you using PRODUCTS
from Close To My Heart!!

Come on in and see what BEAUTIFUL projects my crafty friends have created using the AMAZING products from Close To My Heart!!

 This blog hop is easy to do…just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next creation!!  If you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to see the list of this month’s hoppers! 

If you have arrived from Betty's blog you are right on track.

Close To My Heart has released a FABULOUS special called "Season in Motion" and it's all about animated images!

I adore the fall stamp set...and decided to create a card with this adorable owl...  

CTMH has created an AMAZING Thin Cut (metal die) that cuts the entire front of this card!! 

You probably notice the little lines in the circle of the card front...take a look at the stamp image below---and you'll see that the stamp image doesn't look "normal".  
Rather, the owl (and other images) have lines as part of the stamp image.  Where you see those lines...that's what will create MOVEMENT!

 Here's a peek at another set of cards that are MOVING --These cards were created by the CTMH art department. back to the card I created...let's look at some of the details. 

It was fun to create an ombre look with the OWL image and the wording I stamped below! 
I used the ink colors Saffron & Sangria to stamp the words "Happy Harvest". 

Do you see how I edged the scallops with a marker?? It's hard to see...but I used our NEW Metallic Markers for that edging!

I chose to stamp the Owl in 3 ink colors---Toffee - Saffron & Sangria. 

You can see how his EYES are open in the photo above...

...but by sliding the paper just a bit --- he looks like he's closing his eyes! So FUN!! 

The paper I used is from the 6x6 pack of ADORABLE paper that is part of the monthly special Season in Motion ---check out the 48 sheets!! 

You may recognize some of these patterns from past paper packs that we had---HOWEVER ---they are not the same as those 12x12 papers we had -- but rather, the patterns of the paper have been REDUCED in size, to fit perfectly on a 6x6 square! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed my creation & were inspired to create something of your own. 

Happy Crafting & have a LOVELY evening!!!
