Guest Designing for TTRCD with Miss Daisy Stamps

I'm thrilled to be joining the team at TTRCD as Guest designer this week.  The theme is always Anything Goes and our fabulous sponsor is Miss Daisy Stamps and I've made a little easel card with the adorable Owl-Ways Winter, just one of the fabulous collection of owls Miss Daisy offers for every occasion.  I've used a number of my new dies as well as digital background paper from the Winter Sunshine Collection by We Are 3, also available at Miss Daisy Stamps.

Here's a closeup of Owl-Ways Winter.  He's colored with Copics and I've paper pieced his hat and scarf using digital paper from the Toasty Warm Collection (hat and scarf), and the Toasty Warm Neutral Collection (cuff of hat and pom pom), also from We Are 3 at Miss Daisy.  I'm not sure you can see it in the pic, but the solids have a knit texture and the print is knit texture with snowflakes.  Too cute and perfect for his winter accessories, don'tcha think?  Instead of Glossy Accents I've used small adhesive acrylic disks on his eyes because they just happened to be a perfect fit, no waiting to dry and no chance of cracking. The holly berries are flat backed pearls and I've used a Snow Writer sprinkled with glitter on the patches of snow.  He's fussy cut and glued to the die cut Arched Fir Branch is by Tutti, and popped on the Pierced Fancy Nested Label die by Gina Marie. The Icicle Border up top is by Precious Marieke.

The cute sentiment is one of the 5 bonus sentiments that comes with Owl-Ways Winter.  Sometimes I find the sentiments to be the hardest part when crafting. They are all just perfect for the image but I went with this one 'cause I was feeling all lovey dovey.  LOL

So here's the side version where you can see the little bit of dimension.  I really love how a simple easel cards packs a punch yet are so simple to make.  Thanks to the team at TTRCD for allowing me to join them this week and to their fabulous sponsor, Miss Daisy.  Be sure to visit the TTRCD to see their gorgeous creations and come play along for a chance to win.
