Three Amigos August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are sharing projects featuring the August Stamp of the Month, What A Hoot!  If you love owls, you'll want this stamp set.  Instead of sticking with the Halloween theme of the stamp set, I decided to make a birthday card.

My card features several new products from the Annual Inspirations Idea Book that just went live on August 1st.  The Confetti Wishes paper pack is full of fun, bright colors including our new Thistle and Canary additions to the Whimsy collection.  The owl is colored in with the new ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I added bitty sparkles to the eyes and punched confetti dots to the belly.  The background is embossed with our new Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

My little owl friend is supposed to look like he's jumping out through the paper.  I wanted to use the Adhesive Springs to give him a little movement, but I couldn't find them for the life of me.  I used a double layer of 3-D foam tape to pop him out of the card.  The "SURPRISE!" letters are also popped up with 3-D foam tape.

The picture isn't great, but I wanted to show how I decorated the inside of the card as well.

Thanks for hopping by.  Hop on over to Lisa's Blog to see what she created for you.
