Using freebie stamps

I've got all these free stamps from the front of Craft Stamper that I have hardly used, so I thought I'd have a play. The leaf swirl stamp on this one is a clear Inkadinkado stamp from the 'fall season' set. I coloured it with mustard seed, spiced marmalade, fired brick and tea dye distress inks. I coloured the owl with promarkers.
This flower was coloured with promarkers too, and a bit of stickles. The greeting is from Craftwork Cards. the base card was run through the cuttlebug using a border embossing folder followed by the flower folder.
Finally I used the owl again. I found the background paper as a free download on Mel Stampz. I coloured the trees with pencil crayons. The yellow border was cut using an xcut border cutting die.

All lovely! I like the way you have coloured the flower & left the rest white - it really stands out. And that little owl is very cute!

Evening Sally. What three lovely cards. The first owl one is gorgeous. The colours are really unusual but work so well with your cutie owl. I love all the cuttlebugging and the coloured background on the last one is a great idea.
