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.

  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.....!

  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?
