Owl Punch Space Alien Card

Our owl punch can be used in so many ways to make adorable owl characters, but have you ever thought to make a SPACE ALIEN out of the owl punch?  Here is my ramped up version of a card made at our Crazy About the Owl Punch Stamp Camp:

I really love this color combination – Night of Navy, Pool Party, Real Red, and Basic Gray.  The "stars" are made with the white gel pen. 

This is a perfect card for your out-of-this-world birthday person!

Owl Punch Stamp Camp Tulip Card

This week I held a stamp camp featuring the Owl Punch.  I've done many punch stamp camps before, but this was the first time I focused on one punch.  By the number of RSVPs, it was obvious this was a winning idea!  All of my guests were asked to bring the owl punch with them – this really helped with the flow of the stamp camp.  Usually, my campers wander from station to station.  This time, everyone took a seat and stayed there for the evening.

Today I am sharing the first card – a tulip card.  This was the easiest card of the bunch!

Don't you love how the leaves were made from the owl punch too?

Valentine Owls on a Swing Card

I host an All About Men stamping event every winter.  At this event, my stampers always create a valentine for their someone special.  My customers love the owl punch so I knew I had to work it in to one of my projects.

The tree branch is from the Take Care stamp set.  I was inspired by another demonstrator's non-Valentine card using the owls on a swing.  Thanks Michelle!

St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun Punch Card

I taught my Just Punchy stamp camp last week.  This is probably the most requested event I host for my stampers so I decided I needed to offer it both in spring and fall.  There are just so many characters, objects, and ideas to inspire stampers!  Here are the instructions to make the leprechaun:
