Serendipity Stamps - Introducing Mr. Who!

I'm so happy to be sharing a new die with you today from Serendipity Stamps.  The design team is having a little blog hop to celebrate the release of this owl that Mary (the owner of Serendipity) has informally dubbed "Mr. Who".  He is absolutely adorable and lots of fun to work with.  I know you have lots you want to see so I will keep this short.   I made one "fussy card" with layers  of different patterned papers.  Of course I had to add some gems for big glowing eyes!  I double cut the owl and inlaid the dark chocolate pieces inside the kraft cut out.  
OK now for a little CAS - these cards were so easy I made a whole set in different colors.
For my second project I made a card from white card stock.  Next I trimmed slightly smaller colored card stock panel and attached it to the card.  Then I trimmed a slightly smaller piece of white card stock for the front of my card, stamped the sentiment, cut out the owl die shape and then ran it through my die cut machine with a wood embossing plate and attached it to the card base.  To finish it off I attached the die cut owl and added some gems for eyes.  I just recently discovered the Sakura Quickie Glue Pen - - it works exactly like their Jelly Roll pens but instead of ink it leaves a line of glue that sticks wet or dry.  It is great for tiny intricate areas and worked really well with this die.

Here's a list of all the DT members who are playing along today - please make sure you leave comments on all the blogs you visit.  One random commenter  will receive a $10 discount off their next Serendipity Stamps order!  You have until Oct. 20 to leave a comment - winner will be posted on Oct. 21 on Mary's blog.

Wow! You went to town! Love these two toned owls! I have a two toned green owl sitting on my craft table. Love your first card with lots of color. I am loving these simple owls sitting on wood grain white paper so much! I can see why you decided to make a whole set: GORGEOUS!

That noise you heard, it was my jaw, let me just pick it up!!! Love, love, love these card - my favourite are the CAS card with the wood grain background, but I adore the autumn scene too. I can see this die might find a new home!

Oh Jeanne...you always know how to show different ways to use a stamp or die. Love the fussy version...so interesting with so many different shaped elements, but then I examined the CAS ones with the owl in different colors...loved those too! Love all the details on this die!

These are all so fabulous. I love how detailed the owl is--he looks wonderful with the inlaid pieces, and also as a CAS-guy. You have showed him off to perfection, and of course, I am in love.
