Owl Punch from Stampin Up

Using the Stampin Up Owl Punch I made this Santa Owl based on a picture I had found online. It is so cute and a great addition to Christmas cards – especially for young children. If anyone wants directions on how to make this Santa Owl then leave a comment and I will post the instructions.

Here is an example of the Santa Owl used on a card.

Santa Owl Card

When playing with the owl punch and making lots of owls and the Santa owl there was a revelation at my craft table when we took the wings of the bird punch to make the wings of the owl. When we looked at the wings they also looked like hair and thus Owlvis Hootley was born. This cute little owl heavily resembles Elvis Presley and when gold glitter is added is just too cute.

This card is made using the Owl Punch from Stampin Up in a few ways. The bat is made simply by punching out the body and the eyes and adding the wings from the Stampin up bat punch across the back of the owls body. The ghosts are also made using the owl punch. The feet of the owl are cut off and the body is turned upside down you add the eye pieces from the owl punch and the heart is used for the open mouth. It is so easy and looks sooooo cute. I’ve always loved the owl punch but lately I have decided it is the best punch from Stampin up as it is so versatile.

The owls are hula owls !!!! I absolutely love them :-)

Okay so as I finished making this card I wondered why I pay so much money for embellishments when making them is so easy!!! The doctor and nurse owl are made simply from the owl punch and a bit of cutting. the nurses hat is the bottom part of the owl’s tummy and two strips of red cardboard. The doctor’s stethoscope is made by cutting out an oval then adding an extra section of black card and attaching one of the circles from the owl punch’s eyes. So simple!!!

So I have made this monster using the owl punch and I have yet to make something with it … but I will. It’s great that you can make monsters with the owl punch as I’ve always struggled not to buy the making monsters stamp set from Stampin Up lol.
