Woo Hoo Owl Happy Graduation Card with Eloise

Hello everyone, Eloise here today and I’m going to be featuring the new Woo Hoo stamp set and this one is a fun one, I love the owl and the different types of graduation sentiments to go along with the images. I decided to create a simple scene with a tone on tone background for todays card. I also used a die set that was previously released called Fishtail Banners to create the fun banner panel. I love this die, it’s so well created.

So to start off todays card I first stamped out the images from the Woo Hoo stamp set that I’m going to use in some black ink and then clear embossed over it. I always so this so the watercolour stays contained within the image a little easier. I then coloured in all my images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers, they’re so super easy to use with these images. Once they were coloured and dried, I cut them all out. There are coordinating dies for this set also, which is super awesome!

I then started to work on my background. For this I wanted a super simple tone on tone background, just to give it some interest. I took a piece of kraft cardstock to make my cardbase and then I used both sizes of the diploma images from the stamp set to make the background. I just used Versamark ink to stamp out the images as it gives a great watermark effect and I knew it would be perfect for the tone on tone technique. Because it is a little sticky, I did quickly zap it with a heat tool to make sure it wouldn’t smear or anything like that.

Now that my card base is complete, I moved on to my panel. I wanted to create a smaller panel today since I wanted to background to show through. So I decided to take one of the Fishtail Banners dies from the set and create a fun banner on the bottom of some watercolour cardstock. Once it was die cut I used some Distress Inks to blend in the background and grass. I then used some water on a paint brush to create that water splotch look. Once it was dry I stamped out my sentiment from the same WooHoo stamp set – I decided to use the Happy Graduation one and I used some more black ink to stamp it. I then adhered my banner panel onto my card using some foam adhesive for dimension along with my images. To give it a last finishing touch, I used some hemp cord to tie a bow around the top of my card base.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and make sure you stop by the rest of the week to see some more awesome projects by the other ladies!
