3 Wise Owls

What's been going on? For me, lots of crafting time. I just picked up Papertrey Ink's Wise Owl set by Alli Miles and it's so versatile. Every time I look at it, I want to stamp owls. Sorry for the multiple owl cards, but it is a different one! Instead of stamping their bellies, I used those great buttons! I'm not sure if someone else has done this or not, but since the introduction of Everyday Button Bits, I've been thinking of more ways to incorporate buttons into my designs. Since I was adding buttons, I thought about the eyes and used rhinestones. Isn't it great that PTI is now offering rhinestones for sale?! Kaiser is by far my favorite rhinestone manufacturer. They have a great selection of colors. I'm so excited that PTI will be carrying them because I'm confident they will carry the best color choices all of the time, unlike some LSS where they sell out and you can't find that color again.

Anyways, enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!

Toooooo cute!!! Lovin' the bellies and rhinestone eyes. It is awesome that PTI is selling the Kaiser rhinestones now (my fav too!). I don't have to drive 45 min to the LSS just to find out they are out of my usual Kaiser colors. I love PTI!!!

This is SO CA-UTE! Love the colors you used! I was totally psyched when I saw they were going to carry the rhinestones, too... And they're .75 cheaper per pack than my local store. Woot!

so cute. I love the owls and that color combo. I am going to have to try that one. Unusally, but it goes together so well.

I'm with you on the rhinestones. I can never find good ones. Great card!
