2TC#1 Here Come the Clouds!

...also known as Twisted Tuesday Challenge # 1!!  Hellllooooo!  Today is the first challenge from the brand, sparkling, new Twisted Tuesday challenge blog!!  Today's challenge is called "Here come the Clouds" and the twist is that your project must have clouds that are created any way but by stamping!!  You can sponge or use punches or chipboard, or cotton, or paint or... etc, but *NO* stamped clouds allowed please!  Here is my Here Comes the Clouds card:

My clouds are made from a punch!  They are actually meant to be the top of a cupcake and come from the 2 step cupcake punch!  I punched them and ran them through the Big Shot using the new edgelets hearts embossing die.  Then I sponged their edges blue and outlined them with Dazzling Details to give them a little  sparkle.  Sadly, that doesn't show too well in the picture, but trust me, they are sparkling up a storm!

Made a tree by hand drawing on the texture and the branch is from the 2 Step Bird punch.  I paper pierced each layer and added faux stitching with a white gel pen.

Owl is pieced together from the 2 Step Owl punch.  Love his little feet!

Hearts are decorated with rhinestones and  are from the  3 Heart punch.  This cute little guy is just hanging out in the clouds doing his little owl thing! :)

Excellent twisted challenge Melina!!  Be sure to head on over to the Twisted Tuesday site here and play along!  Cannot wait to see what you come up with!  Want to see some more samples?  Check out the rest of the design teams twisted creations:


Have a great day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Take two.....

Your card is sooooo adorable! The owl is super cute and I like all those layers. I also like the stitching on each layer.

Wow...I'm feeling Deja Vu...I think I've seen this post before...haha! I love the card!!! I like when people make animals in unexpected colors and not the typical brown owl. I have a card for this challenge too, and as soon as my website is back up and running, I'll post it!

The stitching and colors are perfect. Great use of your cupcake die cut! The owl, well it is all time cute.

Thanks, for sharing!

This is awesome! Love the tree as the side border of the card and your 'stitching' is fabulous! But the adorable little owl and the ultra sweet heart embossed clouds really make this card! An incredible creation for your very first DT challenge!!

Love your embossed clouds! You've inspired me to get out my owl punch! I love that punch, but I haven't used it very much!
