Hello friends! Today I have a card and 3D project that I've created for the Colour Queen Color Challenge.
But before I get into my post I'd just like to say something...month's ago I created an owl using the Stampin' Up Pillow Box Sizzix die (you can see my post here), it was original I thought because I had never seen anyone create an owl using the Pillow Box die and I subscribe and follow a large amount of blogs and I'm constantly surfing the web. Well since then I've seen several people post on their blogs the same owl using the Pillow Box die without so much as a mention of my name, link to my blog or to even drop me an email to asking if I'd mind them using my idea. Don't get me wrong I do understand that if you put something out on the web some people feel it's up for grabs. I also know that copying is the best form of flattery and that we all find inspiration in each others work...but it does upset me when someone claims to have created it themselves without giving credit. I'm a big believer in giving credit where credit is due and I've always tried to stick to that rule here on my blog. If I've ever gotten inspiration from someone I link to that person, it's common courtesy. It's also easy to improve on something that someone else has originally created.
The Owl Happy Birthday card uses the SU stamp set Curly Cute, the Two-Step Owl punch and the Scallop Border punch as well as some Melon Mambo designer paper.
For the Owl Pillow Box you can see the supplies below that I used in order to create him, starting with the Pillow Box die I cut out using the Soft Sued and then I cut one half of the die out with the Melon Mambo designer paper. I used the various sized circle punches for the eyes, heart punch for the two feet and beak, large oval for the wings and punched a little more than half of the scallop circle punch out of the yellow and layered them for the belly. The one thing you must have when putting one of these together is excellent adhesive, I used my Scor-tape to adhere the box, designer paper, scallop belly layers and wings.
Thank you for your visit and have a nice day!
