VIDEO: Mint Owl Studio: Creating a Cloud Background featuring Outrageous Owls

Hi, guys!  Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing another fabulous project featuring goodies from Mint Owl Studio.  I am using my favorite stamp set, Outrageous Owls.  These guys just make me happy!  And this set has the best sentiment of all time - You're Owlsome!  Love it!


I wanted to try my hand at creating a fluffy cloud background for these cards.  To do that, I used the largest Puffy Clouds border die from Lawn Fawn to cut a stencil out of some card stock.  You could absolutely just cut some cloud shapes freehand with your scissors and get the same effect!  


Once I had my stencil I applied some Distress Ink over the edge all over the background to create a layered look.  Funny story: I thought I was using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and thought it looked a little darker than usual . . . Turns out I had put the wrong lids on last time I used the inks and I was actually using Peacock Feathers!  Oops!  It turned out great though and kept everything really vibrant!


Once the clouds were done I just colored up my images and fussy cut them out.  Everything is popped up with foam tape - even those tiny little leaves!  The inside of the cards is finished off with an edge die cut and that fabulous sentiment!  I love how the edge die cut allows for white space to write a message on the colored card base AND provides part of the sentiment!  


I hope you guys enjoyed these fun and outrageous owl cards!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!  Bye!
