Party Owl

This is another card for this month’s Creative Crew colour challenge.
CCREW0611DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus:
*Sunny Garden*
June, a time for iced tea, gardens bursting, and riots of color. This month we're going bright.  Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait.


I decided to use my new owl punch again cause he’s so cute!
I used a stamp from Party Hearty for the “Celebrate”.  I masked it to just get the part I wanted.  I punched a circle for the balloon and used crystal effects on it to make it shiny.  I cut a little end piece for the balloon and tied linen thread to it and the owl’s wing. I also just cut a triangle for his party hat.
When I showed this card to my friend Mae (who is also on JAI) she said :
“How did you make the end of the balloon?”
I told her I had just cut it and she said:
“Oh I thought you might have used one of the owl’s feet for it.”
Why didn’t I think of that.  Anyway I’ll know what to do next time.  Thanks Mae.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Party Hearty

These are definitely not my kind of colours …. but I really like how this card turned out. 


  1. I soooooo have to do more with my owl punch! I love it ... but don't play with it enough! Great idea for the owl feet / balloon bottom! (clever Mae!) Hugs xxaxx
