Totally Papercrafts ,,,, Keep it Clean and Simple

It is the lovely Anne's turn this week to choose the theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge this week and she chose

KEEP IT CLEAN AND SIMPLE

We are sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and Anne chose a lovely hero Arts Christmas stamp as the prize this week ,,, I wish I could enter !!! :-)



This started life as a small 3X3 card so that I could enter the Allsorts Challenge this week too ,,, and it just went from there ! I ended up making this stationary set which has 4 3x3 cards, 4 1/2x 41/2 cards and 4 gift tags.
My buddy Heather AKA Rica's Haven made one last week and she inspired me to make this :-) You can find the instructions on Jackie Topa's blog
I used a Hero Arts Scroll Tree and Tiny Owl stamps for the cards and a Hero Arts leaf stamp for the tags. I stamped all the images with pigment ink and embossed with black sparkle EP. The papers are Doodlebug and the flowers on the lid are from Prima




a close up of the 3x3cards and tags ,,, isn't that owl CUTE !! He is a Snowy Owl ,, obviously :-)
