Teaser Time

Hi everyone and thanks for dropping by on Day 4 of the May sneak peeks!

Thankyou so much for the wealth of lovely comments- it really makes me smile knowing you’ve enjoyed seeing what I create. Today has the Owl Factor.

Owl you need is love! (sorry!)IMG_5133

This newly wedded couple (from the set ‘Mr & Mrs Hoot’) are beginning their lives in feathered bliss (ha ha!) The stamp set has a swing image, and I thought it can’t very well have a swing if doesn’t, well…swing!

So, I die-cut an aperture and then stamped and coloured the owls and swing. I punched a very small hole in the swing base and the top of the card and threaded it through.

Alas, I’d not worked out how they’d balance, and let’s just say the owls were not sitting straight, so I glued the twine behind Mrs Owl and now she’s fine.

I do give a hoot about that sort of thing 😉


Once I’d done, it just looked too plain and boring. Needed a little something extra.

Some bunting hanging from the seat just set it off perfectly. You can’t see it, but the glasses are all Glossy Accent’ed up and the sentiment is from the set.

The next card is fairly standard- I was going to try and weave a little humour into the card, but Mrs Owl was very firm with me and told me to behave myself.

So whoooo was I to disagree 😉

This will make a great card ready for the end of term. I’m never quite organised enough but at least one teacher has a card ready now– the question will be whether I can find it when I actually need it!


The class are all busy learning owlgebra….. I’ll stop now!

The set is really clever- you have one desk outline and the different animals easily line up into that. One sweet guy on the back row has given the teacher his apple. The cat on the front is looking a little perplexed as I forgot to stamp any paper for her to write on and she’s so well behaved, she wouldn’t dream of scribbling on the desk!

‘A Class Act’ set makes a wonderful scene doesn’t it! Clever Clearly Besotted!


We’ve one more round of peeks before you can purchase the sets! The stamps and dies will be available in the store and also at Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson tomorrow at 10pm (BST)…

I shall see you tomorrow with a very sensible card before you get the chance to buy your favourites. Do come back, I don’t want to be owl by myself! (ha ha!).

    More sweet images! And more clever designs!! These are wonderful cards, Keren, and the actual swinging swing is so sweet! The bunting finishes it off perfectly. Sweet teacher card too. Love all these critters. And the puns…you’re such a hoot…..


  • 9. Teresa Doyle  |  May 4, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    LOL. These are both adorable but I absolutely LOVE the teacher card! Super sweet stamps in this release!

    First…*groan*…I do love a good pun. Second…both these cards are “stooopid cute”. So happy you took the time to make the newlywed owls swing,,,the bunting is the prefect touch.
    The students on the second card look so angelic…what a well-behave class although I never knew a kitten that wouldn’t do what he/she wanted to do whether there was paper or not.

    Two more fabulous cards, Keren. To do make me chuckle. Great idea to having a swinging swing and I love the classroom scene, fabulous stamping and colouring xx

    This is absolutely delightful and your comments made me smile to myself this morning. Thank you for sharing your lovely ideas.
