My Friend Alison made the following card.  Take a close look at the butterfly.

Can you see what she has done?  Want a closer look?


She used a shiny, see through material (Ok, I am a card-maker, not a sewer… I have to take out my sewing machine manual, every time I have to use the machine!! 🙂 )

If you know the material, leave a comment so I know!


Amazing – An OWL becomes a FROG!!

When you use the owl punch!

I have seen lots of different creations made with the owl but I haven’t spotted a frog so I decided to try to make one and here she is…..

She was created with our Owl Punch and here is how came about….

Punch out the following.  I used two greens, red and Chocolate Chip (for eyes)

Grab a pair of scissors and trim as follows…. 

 Sponge around all pieces – I used Chocolate Chip.

She is starting to come ‘alive’



With her “lily pad”

Just add a flower, using the heart.  Join them together and the flower’s centre is an ‘eye’

She is made (entirely) by using the OWL PUNCH!

I made a ‘chart’ for my ladies showing them what they can create by using the punch.  Check out the web for more ideas.  (Though I couldn’t find a frog)

I used lots of glitter and bling!!  Can you see her ‘crown’?    For her dress, I stamped on whisper white and then used an embossing folder.   I like her.  She’s the Queen or is she more like a bride?

I just love my OWL PUNCH
