Peekaboo Owl card

This is a card I made at a class where we were making cards for men and boys.  It's a really cute card, using the Owl Punch with a window created with a Circle Punch and a frame made with the Scallop Circle Punch.  The card blank is Rich Razzleberry, and the wood grain effect paper is from Natural Composition.  The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments has been stamped with Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White card stock and punched with the Word Window Punch, then mounted onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock punched with the Modern Label Punch.

Here's a close up of the owl behing the frame window.  I love how the eyes can be placed in differnt positions to create a different expression on each owl.

You can see in this picture that the owl has been placed on the inside of the card, with a little branch for it to stand on, which has been punched from the Bird Punch.

Until the 31st August (or until stocks last), you can purchase exclusive single Stampin' Up! stamps.  This has been trialled in the American market, and it's very exciting that we're able to offer the same here in the UK.  There's five images to choose from, and they are all available in clear mount only.  They all fit on the Clear Block size E, and the prices range between £6.50 to £6.95.  

I've bought the Spec-tacular glasses stamp, and I can't wait to have a play with it.  I've got a few good ideas and techniques to have a play with using it....keep an eye out for my posts (get it.....groan!)
