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' PRETTY TIPS:
- 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.
