Owl Punch.

A few weeks ago I broke out the owl punch I got from SU and started playing. I think this is just one of the curtest punch ever.

Here are all the goodies I made:

I covered these cards with the brown waffle paper from SU to make it look like a tree, then I punched a whole and put the owl on the inside to make him look like he was hiding in the tree.

 The inside, I stamped this owls belly with the Because I care set, to give him the pretty flowers. The sentiment is from stem sayings set.
 For the outside owls I stamped their bellies with sweet scoops, the senament is from Heard from the heart, and the background was cut using the top note die.

 More waffle paper tree owl cards:

Here are some owl book marks.

Notebook and matching book mark. I used the waffle paper to cover the notebook then cut a piece of very vanilla with the top note punch. The branch is actually supposed to be a flower from the watercolor trio set, and again I stamped this owls belly with the sweet scoops set.  
 For the book mark I used the Curly Label punch to give it a similar look.

Halloween Wreath

I saw some really neat Halloween wreaths at Target but thought they were over priced and figured I could make a better one for less, and I think I did. :)

This photo doesn't do it justice but you get the idea.

Day Of Gratitude Cards

I made these cards using StampinUps Day of Gratitude stamp set. The colors used are Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Expresso.

1. Cut Cajun Craze strips to ¾” by 6” Stack 12 to 14 strips, and punch holes in both ends using Crop-A-Dile. Secure strips together on one end using Silver 5/16" Jumbo Brad, and fan out into circle shape. To form into sphere, secure other end of strips together using second Silver 5/16" Jumbo Brad.

2. Cut Old Olive card stock to 1/8” by 8.5” Spray thin strips of Old Olive Card Stock with water, and wrap around dowel or Stampin' Write Marker. Allow to dry, then remove from marker.

3. Cut leaves from Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper using Big Shot and Leaves #2 Originals Die. Adhere leaf and curly stem from previous step to top of each pumpkin using Stampin' Dimensionals.

4. Stamp leaf image in Old Olive ink on Whisper White Card Stock. Cut out, and adhere one to larger leaf to the top of pumpkin using Stampin' Dimensionals.

5. Adhere button one to top of each pumpkin.

~ I put the brads in upside down so the tops are inside the pumpkin
~ I secured them on both ends and then took half and pulled it around to the other side, then spread them out one by one. I found if you pushed the pile in a little it made it easier to get them apart.

Painted Canvas.

I found these really neat square canvases at Big Lots so I thought they would make great gifts. Its the 1st time I've used acrylic paints so I'm really happy with how they came out.
