Fun with Owls

I'm smitten by the Two-Step Owl Extra Large punch new to this year's Idea Book & Catalog! It is SO much fun to play with, and I've barely scratched the surface of what can be done! I kept the owls on the following three cards pretty simple, but I've seen them made with their wings outstretched, in Bride and Groom outfits, in hats of all types, as silhouettes against a full moon -- and the pieces can be used to make ghosts, penguins, and flowers, too! The eyes can be done as I have by using the circles on the punch, or they can be two-layered, have eyelids, or even be done with googly eyes. What a hoot! (Sorry, couldn't resist the pun!)

Since the cards are pretty straightforward, I'll leave you with the ingredient list below. If you have any questions at all about the cards, please email or leave a comment and I will get back to you. Enjoy the cards!

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Confetti
Cardstock/Ink Colors: Pacific Point, Sahara Sand, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Old Olive, Whisper White

And: Basic Pearls, Victoria Crochet Trim, Stampin' Dimensionals (of course), Not Quite Navy brads, retired Pacific Point ribbon
