Practical Scrappers Punches Challenge

Hi Everyone,

The challenge this week is to use our punches. We have the option of using border, fancy, basic shapes, whatever we have in our stash.

I received a card from a stampin up consultant that had an owl on it made with various SU punches. I decided for this challenge I wanted to try making my own owl. I didn't have all of the punches so my owl is a mixture of cricut and various punches both SU and Creative Memories.

In total I used 3 different sized circle punches (1.25", 1", and 0.75"), the scalloped circle punch, and the photo corner punch for a total of 5 different punches. The rest of the owl was created with my cricut and cuttlebug.

Paper: Tangerine Tango Cardstock from Stampin Up, Bazzill brown Cardstock, Light brown cardstock from Creative Memories, Stampin Up Black, Stampin Up Whisper White, My Mind's Eye Star Bright Paisley Pop.
Ink: Jumbo Java Versamagic Chalk Ink, Archival Black Ink
Stamps: CTMH Playful Lowercase and Upper Case Alphabet
Accessories: Stampin Up Top Note Die, George Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge, Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge

Thanks for visiting and have fun creating,
