As I’ve been looking and looking in my stampin’ studio for my stamp storage box that’s filled with ten Wood You Be Mine cards, I came across this cute Owl Builder Punch card I made several years ago.  He’s still just stinkin’ cute!

The background stamp is retired unfortunately.  I went back as far as my 2009-2010 Annual Catalogs looking for the spackled woodlike background stamp but didn’t see it.  The greeting is also retired.  Actually, so are the leaves.  But……..I had some already-die-cut and punched pieces in the cello bag where the card resided.  I decided to use the pieces that were ready to go, along with a few updates.

I used the ‘negative’ of the punched out leaves to decorate the front of the envelope by sponging the leaves using a Sponge Dauber and Old Olive Classic Ink.

This is pretty much a ‘monkey see, monkey do’ card.  No offense intended.  The Owl Builder Punch is used for the Owl, vest, 3 different pieces for the eyes and the heart.  The Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die could be used for the leaves and the little yellow flowers.  Modern label punch is used for the greeting.

The owl and the greeting are attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   The card front was done using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.

Other punches used:  2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

The ‘You’re Great‘ greeting is from the From the Garden stamp set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

How long has it been since you pulled out your lonely Owl Builder Punch?  Isn’t it about time you pulled it out?  This guy has so much personality.  And he can become a ‘gal’ with just a change of ‘vest’ and ‘accessories’.  Or they can become a couple.  If you have an Owl Builder punch card why not share it with us?  Send it to me via an email (Blythe@StampingWithBlythe.com) and I’ll post it for all to see.  With your name attached of course.

I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow and thanks for stopping in today.  Happy end of today’s PI day.
