Cute new Owl Stamp from Little Claire

Little Claire's have just released a lovely little stamp called 'Night Owls' and it's a real bargain at only £2.99!

Here are a couple of cards that I made using the stamp. The first is made using the stamp exactly as it comes and mounting it on to some lovely moon and stars paper which I printed from a Cute Compnions CD.


For the second card I did something a little bit different. I embossed the tree using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then filled the indented side with glue so that I could glitter the tree. I then cut out the owls moon and stars from the stamp to add as embellishments. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show this as well as I would have liked, but the glitter effect is quite subtle on the real thing because of using translucent glitter on a dark card stock. I takes a little time to do this but I would recommend giving this a go if you fancy something a little different. I think it would also look really nice on some ofthe other Cuttlebug embossed backgrounds too. Anyway, after all that waffle, here's the card....
