He's Back!


It seems like every time mama comes for a visit, she needs more cards - which is a good thing.  Sometimes I find it easier to create something when I'm on a mission rather than when I'm doing it just for fun.  I guess that classifies as working better under pressure.

I used the new Two-Step Owl Punch for this card.  It's a little work putting him together, but he's worth it!  The branch is from the Two-Step Bird Punch.   

Here's everything I used:

Short & Sweet
Woodgrain Background Stamp

Naturals Ivory
     4-1/4x8-1/2 Card Base
Cherry Cobbler
     Scraps for Scallop Circle & Heart
Soft Suede
     Scraps for Owl
Pear Pizzaz
    Scrap for Branch
Baja Breeze
     4-1/4x1 for Scallop

The owl's tummy is a scrap of the retired Parisian Breeze DSP.  His eyes are made with Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip.

Crumb Cake Stamp Pad
Early Espresso Stamp Pad

Two-Step Owl Punch
Two-Step Bird Punch
Scallop Circle Punch
Scallop Edge Border Punch
Pear Pizzazz Stitched-Poly Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!
