Julie Warner –
Today we are taking a look back at the ODBD October Release. Don’t you just love these fabulous leaves w/ matching dies? As I was planning my card, I found some really pretty metallic paint chips and one was this lovely bronze color. I stamped the text from Randi’s Song with the cocoa ink then stamped some of the leaves on top using the chestnut ink.

Julie Warner –

On the die cut leaves, I stamped them with the bronze ink and sprinkled half with gold embossing powder and half with copper embossing powder then heat embossed. I did the same with the greeting and die cut with a rectangle die. The leaf square die cut was used on some metallic brown card stock and resized it to make it into a rectangle instead of a square. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!
Today we’re showing off this  wonderful new Owl die! Isn’t it fabulous? I love all the detail and it cuts like a dream. 

Who Loves Ya 02185
For my owl card, I used a dark flecked rust card stock to die cut a frame using a rectangle die. I used the center cut out to die cut the owl. I love this rust color paired w/ the soft sky color so I traced around the die and fussy cut the blue layer. A leaf die was used to cut all the rust & sky leaves in graduating sizes. I found a piece of designer paper that had the two colors in it and used it as a backdrop behind the frame. The greeting banner and backing banner were also die cut and I put a wave in the top one because it was a bit long for the layout. I added some sequins to the leaves and some bigger, bluer sequins to his eyes. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
