A big thanks to all of you that joined us for the latest Sparkle N Sprinkle release of Set 510: Owlettes.  The winner was randomly picked from the (Mystery Designer) Belinda Shupe's blog: 


Please e-mail SNS_Artist@tampabay.rr.com with your mailing address, choice of one glitter and embossing powder which can be used with your dear little owlettes, and we will get your prize in the mail!

While we were preparing for our big release, I played a little with the Owlette set and some of the many products that Sparkle N Sprinkle has to offer. Here are three more designs that I came up with:

This one uses our "Glow in the Dark" embossing powder!  I used a Versamarker pen to apply the embossing powder to the rings around the eyes.  It's also a great embossing powder choice for those upcoming Halloween projects! The instructions are here.

Then I decided to glitter things up a bit, using the Tear-ific Tapes. It's so easy to add strips of bling (not to mention furry softness) to your projects! 

For the little owl, I used the 2 1'2" Tear-ific Tape with some Buff Flocking and then shaded with Copics on top. He is also attached to a wobble, another fun element to add to your projects!

I also edged the card base with the 1/2" Tape, centered the card front and applied the Buff Flocking to the exposed edges. Can you see the fuzziness in the frame?  

For my last card I decided to use two of the new marbled embossing powders, Ocean and Mojito:

Mojito for the grass, Ocean for the sky! Full details can be found here, if needed:

So there you have a few more ideas for this adorable little set.  

Owl be back soon!



  1. Wow Shona! You always amaze me with your creativity and would love to see the owls at night with their eyes glowing! Great cards, very inspiring!

  2. Shona, my fave ps the first card -- what an absolutely clever idea this is! Great job!

  3. Holy cow lady! You've been busy. What a great variety of fantastic inspiration :) How cool that there's glow in the dark embossing powder. I may have to get some of that. I love the glitter and flocking. I don't use flocking nearly enough - I have a few colors that sit unloved.

    Best crafty wishes!

  4. Shona, you always amaze me with all the ideas you come up with. I really like the first card, and I bet those eyes look like real owls in the woods. Then on the second card, I really like how the buff flock looks, and even more when you colored some of it. Don't you like those wobbles??? I also like what you did on the wood grain with the leaves. You rock!

  5. Oh those owls are too twit 't woo sweet. Nice job Shona

  6. Wow, Shona, what a great job you did with those wonderfull owls, I realy love all of them, but my favorite is the first one, they look like a sweet family in the tree!!


  7. Great job on all these cards. These owls are so cute. my fav is still card #1.

  8. So much texture! Love it! Love the colors on the last one and the peek a boo owls on the first one. The middle one is so rich in fall colors! Love them ALL!

  9. Beautiful collection of Owl cards. All are very cute.
