Owl Builder Christmas Card

I have always wanted to make a cute little card with Christmas owls sitting on a branch.

The branch and holly leaves were made using some dies from memory box, and the rest of the card was made using Stampin Up products as shown in the below supply list.

You will notice that I used many different SU punches to make up the owls instead of just using the original owl builder punch. The reason for this, is I just wanted my owls to look a little different from the original owl.

I used the owl builder punch for the owl background shape, the heart punch for the eye background, the 3/4" circle punch for the belly, the raindrop from the tree builder punch for the beak, and the smallest shape from the blossom petals builder punch to make the owl wings.

Foxy Friends Christmas Card

Today I am sharing a Christmas card which uses the "Foxy Friends" stamp set and the coordinating "Foxy Builder" punch to make Rudolf the red nosed reindeer. My sentiment is from the "Good Greetings" stamp set.

Botanical Blooms Card

There are many flower stamps sets to choose from in the annual catalogue, and the "Botanical Blooms" stamp set is by far my favourite. I will be sharing a few different cards that I have made using this stamp set over the coming months, which range from a simple card through to cards that are a little more difficult to make.

I wanted to give the card a slight grungy look, so I used the "French Foliage" stamp set to achieve the result I was after. I think both these stamps sets work really well together and I love the colour combination I used.
