Challenge #110: Animal Fun!


Popping in today to share my make for the latest challenge at Unstampabelles here

Challenge #110: Animal Fun!

TWIST: Layer it Up!

Any animal you use – human or non-human – will fit this one

Just Remember please: NO STAMPS!

I’ve opted to make a punch art owl. Check out last weeks post to, owls seem to be a DT favourite!

I have had this punch art “recipe” in my ideas file for a long time, so long I have forgotten where I got it from – it is hand written on a cue card! If it is your idea thank you. Below are a few photos of the basic shapes I used. The small orange heart is used for the beak.

I popped my owl up on a stenciled background with some foam tabs for dimension along with a few die cut leaves.

Until next time

Thanks for stopping

My challenge supplies

I have gone with a pretty simple theme of circles.  I used various circle punches to punch out from silver paper, pattern paper and plain black cs. I used the silver washi tape above on scrap paper and punched out and used the tiny little black buttons.  Some of the silver paper is embossed – a left over embossed piece from another project. The sentiment is a die cut from mini treat bag.

I am linking this upto the current challenge at Seize the birthday here – toppings to use punches or die cut – I used both

Hope you have time to join in the challenge and use some buttons and washi tape I know many of you have.

Until next time



Punch Owl…


I made this card following a sketch at Whimsie Doodles

I haven’t actually used any stamps. I used various circle punches to create this owl. I followed this example by Tanja Kolar  here

I was originally going to use a stamped image – but changed my mind after colouring the image. I’ll use that another day – or give it to Miss 8 to put on her book covers for school.

I’m also linking this up to the challenge at UnstampaBelles #19

I used only one die – the leaf die. If I had thought a little more I could have used circle dies instead of punches!

Been to the Melbourne Zoo this morning. Beautiful new baby boy elephant – no name yet.

Hope you are having a great start to the week.  Still thinking about all the people in the fire zones – keep safe.
