Retro Owl Swap card

Howdy and hooray! It's Tuesday and by the time you read this, I should be on the airplane headed to Phoenix! WooHoo!

Today is also the first day of the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration too! In honor of that, the card I've posted for you today showcases NEW Designer Series Paper, NEW Clear Mount Stamps, the NEW Sale-A-Bration Punch and NEW Sale-A-Bration Stamps! Come to think of it, there is not much "retro" on this card except for the DSP! LOL!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I have to finish packing and then get some sleep before I head to the airport!
The cardstock I used here is Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, Barely Banana and Taken with Teal. The Owl image from the NEW Fox and Friends stamp set was stamped in Taken with Teal ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. The layer behind it is Chocolate Chip Cardstock punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.

I used some of the cool new DSP from the Sweet Pea Pack - which is 24 sheets in a thick, next to endless pad of paper! Yumm!

I used Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon for the accent and the edge of the card flap is punched with the new Scallop Trim Border Punch that is FREE in the Sale-A-Bration flyer with any $50 purchase. The greeting is also from a Sale-A-Bration stamp set - Whimsical Words - and that is also a FREE stamp set with any $50 order. My set is one of the new Clear Mount stamps that I used with the see through Acrylic Blocks. Yep, they are VERY cool!

Hope you like the card - I think it's 'Owl'right! hahaha, I crack myself up.
Yes, I know, only myself.......

Have a great Tuesday everyone and check back tomorrow for another fun project using NEW stampin' goodies!
Blessings everyone,


  1. These are so cute. I would SO stalk you when you got off the plane (if I was able to go). Have lots of fun and maybe I'll hear from Mark and Emma if they have time this weekend. Safe travels my friend.

  2. This is a really cute card. I love the DP and the owl stamp. Really cute combo.

  3. Robin, I love this card! Wish I saw you to swap! DARN!

  4. This is just adorable! Love that paper...can't wait til my order gets here so I can see it in person. :-)
