You're A Hoot! - Card

After finishing up my stamp catalog I wanted to make something but wasn't sure what I wanted to make, I just knew I didn't want to look at a stamp and I didn't feel like breaking out the Cricut. I looked over at my punches and decided on the owl punch and got to work.

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up Owl Punch
Stampin Up Bird Punch
Stampin Up Decorative Label Punch
Stampin Up Scallop Circle Punch
Stampin Up Circle Punches
Stampin Up Cutie Pie Paper
Stampin Up Cardstock
Woodgrain Cardstock
MS Word
Stampin Up Markers
Signo UM-153 Gel Pen
Colorbox Chalk Ink

I used the Decorative Label Punch for the cut out on the tree. Mounting foam was then applied to the tree and the owl for dimensional effect.

I had completed the card and it didn't look quite right. I kept thinking it needed something and I thought about the bird punch that has the branch on it and thought I could punch the leaves and add. When I did that I felt it was just what the card needed! I punched out two different colors of green 

The sentiment was done with Microsoft Word. I used circle punches and then the scallop circle punch to finish it off. I added white dots with the gel pen. 

I left the inside of the card blank so it can be used for any occasion.


  1. I love the idea of the punch used for the "frame" around the owl. Clever!

  2. Wow what a beautiful card
    you are so talented

  3. What a cute card! I love the label punch out in the tree - too clever!

  4. Awe, that is Adorable. Love the punch out on the tree and LOVE the colors!

  5. tree looks real. cute card. can you share instructions on circle sentiments in word? i really like this! did you color it in or is it printed those colors?


  6. You commented that you had looked for DVD cases before and the only ones you found were from SU. But I just saw today that Becca over at has a new fab source for her clear DVD cases called You might go read about them in her post. She uses them for her Spellbinders dies, too (with a magnetic sheet.)

    Off to work on unmounting my stamps...some more!

  7. So clever to have the owl looking out from the tree! Very cute.

  8. O MY GOSH OKIEEEEEEEEEE That is so CUTE I will have to try to make this for my HOOTER..

  9. Love the idea of the tag punch for the open spot on the tree for the owl. The leaves really do set off your card so right.
