Patchwork Owls

I have a pair of clean & simple cards to share today, featuring some owl stamps by Woodware that I picked up recently in a charity shop. I stamped the owls on to kraft card blanks, along with a sentiment from the same set, then paper pieced them with lots of snippets of My Mind's Eye papers.


Papers - My Mind's Eye 'Floral Blue'


Papers - My Mind's Eye 'Stella & Rose - Mabel'

Two super cards, great paper piecing. I have these stamps too, which I bought years ago. They are still some of my favourite owl stamps. xx

Wow! These are both great! I love the trend of decorating with owls! I even decorated my high school family and consumer sciences classroom with owls about 3-4 years ago. Thanks for linking these to PCCB's #362 challenge! Becca=DT

Same as Liz, I've had these stamps for ages and (slap wrists) had forgotten all about them! Wonderful paper piecing Helen - love the mix of blues against the kraft! Woodware really do some terrific stamps for paper piecing - you got yourself a bit of a find there!

Hello Helen! Nice CAS cards. I love how you have paper pieced them and they made me think of a cozy quilted blanket my husband received from his great-grandmother. Thank you for sharing with us over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps! We hope to see you play again!

What a great find! These stamps are so cute and piecing them makes them even cuter. Putting them on a kraft background really lets the color pop.
