How can you participate and share the love?
-Make a card for someone in your life (it can be a friend, family member, co-worker, etc.)
-Post a photo of it on social media, tag us and use the hashtag #sharethelovemos
-If you don’t use social media, post it on your blog and then leave a link to it on the Mint Owl Studio blog post.
-Send the card in the mail so you can share the love!
-For each card you make and share, you will be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate to the Mint Owl Studio store. 

-This event starts on February 8th and ends on February 14th at 11:59 PM CST. 

How awesome, don't you think?!  I couldn't wait to get busy with my card!


I used the Fun Happy Mail set!  I combined it with the awesome 6 mm  Blossom Sequin Mix.   Who can resist a shaker card?!  I stamped the blooms in distress ink and followed them up with a wet paintbrush and more distress ink on my clear acrylic block.  

pink + green = ♡

This is going postal to my college girl --> ♡

I'm the end of this fun hop!  I can't wait to see how this hop inspires you to:

SugarPea Designs: Guest Designer - Latte Junkie

Click HERE for the Mint Owl Studio Share the Love Event!



I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer for SugarPea Designs this month!  I've been having so much fun designing with their awesome stamps and dies!

Check out this week's card and coordinating envelope:


I used the SugarCuts - Coffee To Go Cup on the front of my card.  I strategically placed it on top of a great mini journal card.  Did you see my envelope?  I used my MISTI and loaded it up with words from Caffeine Addict and the Espresso Yourself stamp sets.

Check out the interior of the card:


latte junkie...(chuckling)  Love the SugarCuts - Coffee Words.  Makes it fun to team up with other words and sentiments...I used the Caffeine Addict stamp set's Junkie.

I was inspired by the current SugarSketch:


I'd love for you to pop over to the SugarPea Designs blog and say Hello!

Reverse Confetti: February New Release Blog Hop!

Click HERE for my SugarPea Designs post.




Today is the day!  It is the Reverse Confetti February Release Blog Hop!  That means all the new release products that we've been sneak peekin' are now available in the shop!



Oh my, this release has been so much fun!  I managed to combine a total of seven new products in  my project today!


Yup, I'm smitten with the Hippity Hoppity bunnies!  I stamped them on my watercolor panel (using my MISTI!) and colored their bodies with my Zig Clean Color Markers.  I decided to not color their dresses because I wanted their sweet faces to be the focus.  I linked the cuties with the floral garland.  I die cut the Limited Edition Quick Card Panel with one of the fun new Edgers and topped it off with a fimo button that has Marigold Twine threaded through it.    I managed to mask off the sentiment from the A Friend Like You.  I used the Lucky me on the front and I left the rest of the sentiment for the interior:


I decorated my envelope with the Garden Bunch stamps and used a sentiment from the A Friend Like You set.

Make sure you hop around to see what my other teamies designed!
