Owl Candle & Card Set

Good Morning my Crafty friends.  Over the last couple of days I have been working on some owl projects for my upcoming craft fair.  All of these projects are made with NAPKINS.  This morning I finished the owl card made up of scraps mostly from this mess on my desk from all of my Fall projects this week. 

Here is the set:

 First let me show you my owl candles, I love the way the turned out. 

The candles are the battery operated ones, Mmmm they smell like vanilla.  The Owls are from napkins that I cut down and peeled them down to 1 ply.  I used my heating tool to slightly melt the wax and adhere the napkin piece to it. 

I will try to do a tutorial for you on this technique sometime today (done now & posted below).

Here is my matching card, I used a piece of one of the napkins that was left over for my focal point.  But Card base itself is my own design that I created an SVG file for.  The pattern layer is from my scraps, the ribbon is also from my scraps.  The yellow scalloped frame was left over from another card I made this week, it was cut from foam using a metal die.  The stamped banner I cut by hand from scraps and then stamped with the sentiment give thanks and popped up on foam dots.

The inside of the Card I used both of the pattern papers from the front and stamped with a coordinating stamp from that same set.

Here is my desk filled with a scrappy mess before I started my card.

I am entering this card into these fun challenges:

 This next project is a weekly planner, I made a new cover for it out of one of the napkin pieces.  I used a technique where you take the layer of napkin and some Saran wrap and using an iron you adhere it together.  I watched a video on U-Tube to learn that trick.  I used some bling for the eyes and stamped the year and sentiment.

On the inside of the planner I once again stamped the sentiment, this time in orange and I also stamped a cute little Owl and colored him in with my colored pencils.  I also added a ribbon to match inside for a bookmark.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my projects!  Don't forget to leave me a comment please, I love reading what you all think of my work :)  I hope you have a Wonderful and Crafty Day!!!
