Such a Hoot!

Stampin up woodland walk owl punch

The new Stampin' Up! Owl Punch is a total "hoot!"  You can dress him (her) up or down or combine two for a bride and groom (I'm already dreaming how fun this would be with a little tux for the "guy" and pearls for the "gal").  The Owl Punch was a reader favorite when I published Mary's Gotta Have It Top 10!


  • Stampin up owl punch stampin pretty I have been known to "over analyze" (AKA "obsess") over my purchases–including my wish list for Stampin' Up! products.  I can't believe I hesitated for a second (but ultimately purchased) the Woodland Walk Designer Paper.  It's absolutely smashing in real life.
  • This sweet owl seems the epitome of "happiness" sitting on his little branch from the Two Step Extra Large Bird Punch.  He's popped up on a couple Stampin' Dimensionals for added oomph.
  • A touch of Tangerine Tango on the heart and horizontal layer really say "zoinks" to me.  I dusted off and used my Crimper, too.  It really deserves more attention than it gets.
  • Stampin' Up! Sticky Tape is key to keeping your 3-D projects together, including my Pillow Box.
  • I haven't done a Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge (SC289) in ages.  Boy, was it nice to get back in the swing.

The owl is too cute, I’m going to have to bring him home to my house. In your list of supplies you list garden green ink. I don’t see where you used it. Would you point it out to me.
