In addition to it being out birthday, it’s that time of year when our focus turn to Dads and Grads and our latest “cutie” in the QUIRKY CUTIES collection is just perfect for all those guys (and gals) in your life.  Plus, you’ll find fun uses for him throughout the year.

Without further adieu, let me introduce you to OLIVER OWL

OliverOwl300

I just adore OLIVER OWL and had so much fun coloring and creating with him!  (Even if you are not a “colorer,” these images are lots of fun to play with!)

For this card, I had Oliver take center stage with the sentiment stitched to the rounded rectangle (CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts) just behind him.  I backed that panel with cuts from TAG ME and the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.  He’s colored with both warm and cool grays and I think he goes perfectly with the woodgrain paper that I’ve been hoarding for a couple of months now…

Today, we are also introducing the new set WINNING, along with the companion WINNING Confetti Cuts die set…

A little side note and Reverse Confetti trivia for you…this was actually one of the first sets that I sketched and created concepts for when things got going last year.  However, it just wasn’t meant to be at that time and I am glad I hung onto it, edited it, sent it to a different illustrator (Angelica Suarez) and ended up with this fantastic set perfect for all the champs in your life…

The Confetti Cuts die set features the trophy, the trophy base, the pennant and the starburst…

The new OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set is the perfect compliment to the WINNING stamps and Confetti Cuts, too.  The (single) stars in this set are the same size as the stars in the WINNING stamp set.

I was apparently channeling my inner Dallas Cowboys fan with this color scheme on my first card featuring WINNING stamps and Confetti Cuts, and the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  However, any Cowboys fan will tell you that colors are where the team stops as the muse for this card (sorry ‘Boys…hoping for a better season this year).

Winning1

I used the tab from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to display the word, “hooray” from a WINNING set sentiment.  You can also see the dimension on this card and the detail of the star strip behind the trophy/trophy base…

It’s been awhile since I broke out the Diamond Glaze, but this card just needed a little “something” as a special touch and this was it!  On this shot, you can also see that I slightly shaded the trophy (Copic C3 and Blender), too.

Winning1_detail

I’ve been having quite a bit of fun in my studio lately creating with these new stamps and Confetti Cuts.  While I love doing lots of layers on cards and other paper crafting projects, it’s so nice to keep it simple sometimes.

For this card, I cut 3 of the star strips (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached 3 shades of purple cardstock to create this ombre card with a sentiment from the WINNING stamp set.

I also did the same layout with a more masculine color scheme and embellishments (stars cut from OH MY STARS in cork)…

Oh My Stars…it’s the perfect star Confetti Cuts die set!  This Confetti Cuts set features a 4.25″ strip of negatively cut stars, as well as a smaller star and a smaller star strip.  The single stars cut from this die set coordinate with the stars in the WINNING stamp set.

NOTE: Many of our Confetti Cuts die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other.  To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand.  Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).
