Mini Owl Punch Banner

I just love when you guys send me pictures of the things that you have made! This mini banner is made with the Owl Punch by Christiane Boyer off of the larger one made by Dawn Pritchard who got the template from my Owl Purse & Cards project! It's so nice to be able to get inspiration from others and keep creating new things!
Here are some close up photos of the pieces!

These are so cute!

Paper Flower Bird

I made this 5 1/2" square card using SU's new paper flowers to make the wings for the bird!

Here is how I did it:
I drew the line on with pencil and then cut out the back of the wing out of the largest size flower.

I put the next smallest size flower on top and cut that along the same line.

I cut a bird out of white card stock and sponged the bird and all the flowers with Marina Mist ink. I put it all together with Dimensionals so the the wings would pop up. I did the back wing the same way as the front wing out of the rest of the flowers that I has cut.

To make the border for the sentiment (which is from the All Holidays stamp set) I used the Decorative label Punch. I cut a piece of paper to 3 1/2" x 3 1/8" and measured in 1/2" from each side and drew lines with pencil on the back. I then used the Decorative Label punch to punch inside twice, lining the edges up with the lines. Then you get a nicely punched out Decorative frame! I then cut down the border size a little bit to make it smaller so it would fit better on my card.

Bird Punch Halloween Ghosts

Here is my Halloween card that I made ghosts using the bird punch! The large ghosts use the body from the bird and the baby ghost uses the wing from the bird punch. The background of the card is made by lining up the punched bats out of black card stock on Pumpkin Pie card stock.

Owl Cards Addition

Here is my Owl Cards Addition Class!
This project has the same card template as the Owl Purse & Cards (except no template for the purse) with all new outfits!
This tutorial includes templates for all of the outfits shown here as well as templates to make the baby owls that I have previously posted pictures of on my site!
These would be great invitations for a Halloween party or for scrapbooking the photos afterwards. I thought the cheerleader would be perfect during football season as an invite to a watch game or for a Superbowl party! You can change up the outfit for any team!

( My husband is a Jets fan, can you tell?)

Scallop Circle Roses

I saw how to make these little roses on the Creating Cards with Andrea blog and I loved them! She said she used the scallop circle punch to do hers so I tried it with all the sizes of scallop circles that SU has. They came out so great!
I used the small Scallop circle punch with the 1" circle punch for the middle, the new larger scallop circle punch and just cut out the center circle and then also the Scallop Circle die and #2 die for the Big Shot(where I also cut out the center circles by hand). They all come out different size roses and work so well together! I glued them all on scrap paper and then cut the bottoms once they were dry.
I used Pink Pirouette card stock and Regal Rose ink to sponge the edges for the roses. I used Wild Wasabi card stock for the leaves using the 5 Petal Punch and sponged the edges with Old Olive.

This is how my frame started out. I got it at the dollar store! I ripped out the back and took the butterfly board off so I could move it over.

Here is the scallop circle with the center gone being rolled up and then glued on the 1/2" punched circle. I cut the center out of the 5 petal punch to make the leaves and wrapped it around the base.

Here is one of the completed flowers and the inside of the frame after I finished with it. I used Very Vanilla card stock to cover the frame pieces and sponged them with Crumb Cake ink to age them. I printed the picture and ripped the edges and sponged them also.

I love these little flowers, they are gorgeous!

Ice Cream Cone Card

Here is the ice cream cone card that we made as a make-n-take at out last GMS Meeting. As promised, here are the directions to make it!
The cone for this card is made out of the scallop square die for the Big Shot cut out of Crumb Cake card stock. We put it through the lattice embossing folder inking one side with Espresso ink to get the pattern on it. If you look at the picture on the right you will see that it is folded from the bottom corner and up at an angle to the fourth scallop in on the top side. Do this to both sides. You will just have to measure the angle to see what size your white paper should be. The ice cream scoops are the new large scallop circle punch put through the embossing folder to get the pattern. The scoops are put on with Dimensionals.

I made this card as a make-n-take at a stamping meeting but it was originally from some one else's blog. If this was your creation, let me know and I will give you credit!

September Green Mtn. Stampers Meeting

We had another great Green Mountain Stamper's meeting this past Saturday under my upline Jennifer Heffernan in Addison, Vermont. We have swaps and demonstrations and some of the ladies bring in samples of their work to share. Jen also so wonderfully prepares 3 make-n-takes for us to do each meeting that are always great! Everyone brings some sort of good snack to eat so we have a table of snacks and drinks too.
This is a great group to be a part of! If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator and joining this great group, CLICK HERE for all of the details! You do not need to live close by! You can still participate by doing a long distance swap and Jen sends out an email after the meetings giving us a rundown of what went on and everything that was demonstrated!
I do have to say that this is a group of GREAT ladies!

Here are only some of the swaps that I got... there are too many to show them all so I try to rotate people each month!
