Playing with Punches

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaSome time ago, I saw someone had made an owl with their Stampin' Up! punches. As you do, I stored it away in my brain with the thought "I must try that one day". Then, when I finally got back to it, of course I couldn't remember where I'd seen it...so I've come up with my own owl. I have no idea how he compares to the original I saw, but I think he's turned out pretty cute!
If you see the original, let me know, so I can credit them here.

Here's my owl recipe:
body: 1 3/8" circle punch
wings, beak, feet : Boho Blossoms punch
eyes: 1/2" circle punch, 1/4" circle punch

I used Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and River Rock, and stuck him together with 2-way glue (LOVE this stuff for gluing fiddly bits!). The Designer Series Paper is "Dashing" (I've sanded the edges with a Sanding Block to expose the white edges). The stamp is from "One of a Kind" in the Mini. I've popped him onto a little Love Note.


  1. This is soooo adorable, I want to make an owl!

  2. He is gorgeous!!!! I really need more punches!

  3. What a CUTE owl card!! Love how sleepy he looks!! TFS!

  4. I love your owl Marelle!!!

  5. Oh Marelle, he is PRECIOUS!! There was a punched owl swap card around the place at Perth Regionals on the weekend. I didn't get one and not sure who made him, but he was quite different to this one. The one thing I recall about it was that the round tab punch was used to make his head. Not sure that that's any help.....!

  6. That's gorgeous Marelle. I love your owl :)

  7. sooooooo cute Marley!! :-)

  8. Here's a card with a punched owl on it at Splitcoast stampers. She mentions that she also saw it on the stampin up website, so maybe the US Stampin Up Site?


    Your owl is co much cuter though.


  9. I really like this one! Very cute! :D
