A Purple Owl! So cute!

I'm not really into alot of punch art, but while thumbing through one of my Stampin' Success magazines, I came across this cute owl made up of all Stampin' Up! punches! This awesome creation was submitted to an art contest by Lyssa Zwolanek of Watertown, Wisconsin. Soooo cute! I knew I wanted to make one of these cuties! I'm not sure if Lyssa has a blog or not, but just wanted to acknowledge her for the inspiration! The punches used are: Round Tab (owl face), scallop circle (cut in half to make the wings), 1 3/8" circle (body), 5 petal flower (cut to make the beak), Trio Flower (feet), half inch and 1/4" circle punches (eyes). I typed the sentiment on my computer (David Walker font that I bought from 2 Peas) and punched it out using the large oval punch and layering it using the scallop oval punch.
I attached this cute owl on my french fry box (an XL Sizzix die) using some cute DP that I bought from Pineapple Cove (at Kahala Mall). I made 2 of these boxes to thank 2 of my special friends - Linda and Kyoko! They are some of the most generous ladies out there, always caring, always sharing and I just had to make a special thank you for them...their favorite color is purple and I must say that this owl looks pretty cute in purple, don't you think??
Lots to do today...want to start cutting kits for my August class (announcement in tomorrow night's post) and possibly start working on my 50 Christmas tag class coming up in September!!
I'm so glad that you stopped by and shared a little bit of your day with me!
One last thing...if you live on Oahu and want to find a good bargain, J's is having 30% off sale on all Cuttlebug & Just Rite products! Stop on by to say HI to Cliff! Also, C2F is having their warehouse sale - great price on mono adhesive! See you tomorrow!

Hey Teri,

I thought that owl paper looked familiar...it's nice & glittery too! I love the owl punch art - it's so amazing what you can do with circles, tabs and flowers if you just cut them up a bit.

Sooo cute!! Have a great weekend!
