Stamp With Us challenge

So, I made this card for the Stamp With Us sketch challenge as well as Challenge 13 for Late Night Stampers. Hope you enjoy this mini tutorial!

Supplies needed:
Card Stock - Whisper White, Yoyo Yello, Real Red, and Tempting Turquoise
Ink Colors - Pacific Point, Pixie Pink, Basic Black, Going Gray, and Real Red
Big Shot and Top Note Die
Stamp Sets - Love Owl-ways and Owl Together Now
Other - Ribbon of some sort, Stampin' Pastels, Blender Pens, Crop-a-Dile and one eyelet, Scallop Punch, Snail adhesive, Stamping Sponges, Stamp-a-Ma-Jig

Cut Whisper White card stock to 10" x 6" fold to 5" x 6". Cut 2 pieces using the Top Note Die: 1 out of Whisper White, 1 out of Real Red. Tear off the edge of the Whisper White piece to make jagged edge, then using your sponge dipped in Going Gray ink, sponge all edges of this piece. Using Snail, adhere this piece to the Real Red Top Note die cut.

Cut Yoyo Yellow 4 3/4" x 3 1/2". Using distressing tool, edge of bone folder or fingernail to distress edges of this piece. Using sponge dipped in Real Red, sponge edges of this piece. Adhere to right side of card.

On left side of card, using Pacific Point ink, stamp owls from Owl Together Now down left side. Use Blender pens and ink pads and/or Stampin' Pastels to color in owls.

On Whisper White Top Note die cut, using the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, and Basic Black inkpad, stamp the mailbox and owl from Love Owl-ways where you want it. Also stamp hearts using the 3 heart stamp from Owl Together Now. Color these all in with Blender pens, ink pads and Stampin' Pastels.

Adhere the Top Note piece over the Yoyo Yellow as shows in picture. Adhere ribbon along bottom. I used Snail to ahdere the ribbon.

Using Scallop punch, punch out one scallop from Tempting Turquoise card stock. Layer this over the ribbon and aline Crop-a-Dile punch in center and punch hole. Add eyelet with Crop-a-Dile. Using Pacific Point inkpad and Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, stamp "love owl-ways!" on the bottom half of the Scallop.
