Cuttlebug Meets BasicGrey


I saw the title of this week's Cuttlebug Challenges blog, "BasicGrey Collection." Be still, my heart!!! My two favorite things together? Life is good...

I recently ordered this Cornish Heritage Farms owl stamp set. This is my first time owning or using a stamp set by CHF. I can tell you these stamps are the best! The images stamp so beautifully. I will be looking at purchasing more of their stamps in the future.

I colored my owl and party hat with Bic and Copic markers. I paper pieced the pom-pom and raised it with SU! dimensionals. The dps are all BasicGrey Granola. I think they make wonderful masculine cards, which are difficult for me. That being said, I like how this card turned out. I used my Spots & Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the brown panel. I added the sentiment with jumbo eyelets from Stampin' Up!

I used the same sketch I used here. It is one of my go-to sketches :)
