Stamp Set Best of Everything

Out On a Limb with the Owl Punch

I have not played with the Owl Builder punch in a while.  I decided I needed to pull it out after seeing this blog post.  I knew that I could recreate what she had done using my Stampin Up! products.

I punched the owl and then cut around it leaving about 1/4"around the owl.  I attached the owl to the layer just around the head area.

I cut a slit along the branch and slipped the the owl into the slit.

CASEing Stampin' Success

Stampin' Success is a monthly magazine Stampin' Up sends their demonstrators and I look forward to receiving my copy every month.   The magazine offers lots of stamping ideas as well as business ideas.  Today's sample was pretty much cased from the Stampin' Success.  I did change the framelit and the stamp set but I loved the color combination and layout so those are  the same as in the magazine.
