Posted by on August 31, 2011 in Print Candee | 27 comments

Hi everyone,

Well today is the first official blog hop at Print Candee. We are excited that you have joined us. If you have hopped on over from Kalyn’s blog you are in the right place! If you want to start the hop from the beginning, head to the Print Candee Blog. There are some great hidden prizes to be won just by leaving comments along the way…you could be a lucky winner! There is also a prize for one lucky person by leaving a comment on the Print Candee Blog. You have until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, September 3rd to comment for prizes.

Today the creative team are creating projects with the theme of kids/babies. When I saw this, I was over the moon as I have two little ones and I love creating kid’s cards! I have made a birthday card for my daughter who turns two in December (I know I am early…but it is good to be organised!) I am into owls at the moment, so when I saw these cute owl clipart images from the store – I was in!

I used a cloud from the Cloud SVG Set to create the background by sponging around it several times with a sponge dauber and Broken China Distress ink. The branch was printed onto my base and to add some dimension I added extra leaves. The owls were printed and then cut out and sponged around – and I added Glossy Accents to the eyes to make them shine! Some flowers and Thickers from my stash and I was done!
