If you haven't yet played with the new Two-step Owl Punch, you are totally missing out! I've been having so much fun with this punch. The possibilities are endless and it's a great punch to have around if you have kids or grandkids around. They can dress their owls up however they like and have countless hours of fun.
I got the inspiration for this card from the Idea Book & Catalog. I tweaked the design a bit and changed colors and stamps. The Idea Book & Catalog is a great resource for ideas and if you don't already have a demonstrator and would like a FREE catalog, make sure you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get one sent out to you!
I used Rich Razzleberry cardstock for my base and added a strip of Close to Cocoa cardstock along the bottom, which I stamped with one of the greetings from the Three Little Words set with Basic Brown ink. I also stamped the same image on a scrap of cardstock and cut it out to mount underneath the owls at the end.
I punched out the owl from Close to Cocoa cardstock and then punched the chest pieces from scraps of the retired Razzleberry Lemonade patterned paper and cut little Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry hearts to add to my card. The stems were cut from retired Kiwi Kiss cardstock. These punches are great ways to use up your scraps and retired papers and cardstock.
I used some scraps of Crushed Curry cardstock and punched them with the Scalloped Edge Border Punch and made them peek out from behind my Whisper White cardstock. I popped the owls up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The only thing I would change now is to put some Pumpkin Pie cardstock underneath the eyes to show the beak of the owl a little better. But....I still think it turned out super-duper cute!
Oh....the 2-Way Glue Pen is fantastic for helping to glue down small pieces and intricate design pieces cut out of punches and the Big Shot.
