Totally Batty …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s stampin’ tip / technique with glitter, but today we are going to put away the glitter, because it’s time to pull out the punches!

Yep, today’s card share is a sweet and simple punch card.  Punch art is one of my most popular stampin’ events… those classes always fill up fast.  Today we are using the 2-1/2″ and 1-3/4″ circle punches, the owl punch and the 1-3/4″ scallop punch.

Again, I began with the “Witches Brew” Designer Series Paper (I’m trying to keep your supplies to a minimum, by using the items over and over).   I matted that with a piece of Pumpkin Pie and backed it with Basic Black.

The tree limb was cut (free handed that one) out of Chocolate Chip cardstock and then embossed with the “Woodgrain” embossing folder.

The moon is easy … punch a 2-1/2″ circle then sponge the edges to create some depth to the paper.

Next I punched out the owl.  To create his wings, I punched a 1-3/4″ circle and cut it in half.  Then I used the scallop punch to create the points on his wings … a small single circle punch would work too.  I just lined up the point where the straight edge meets the curved edge and punched 2 scallops…. then I line up 1 scallop and punch.  Yes, it’s a bit tedious but it looks cool.  If you have an easier way … I would really love to hear how to do it quicker.

His little smile and teeth were hand cut … it was easy and again, it makes him look cute (not scary like real bats – but that’s a whole other story!)

To finish off the card I added a simple ribbon, the 1/8″ Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon.

Tomorrow I have another little stampin’ trick up my sleeve, so stop back and check it out.

Thanks for “hangin’ out” with me today!
