GUEST DESIGNER - MARIA & her SU OWL punch animals

Hello Friends and Followers of  Cathie´s Sweet Spot.

I felt very flattered and touched as Cathie asked me to be a Guest-Designer on her blog to show you all Owl-punch-animals that I did.  I made all these animals using my Stampin UP Owl-punch.

So here is the first animal I want to share with you.

Say hello to the Peac-owl

(AKA Peacock-OWL)

This animal was specially created for Cathie in first place to put on her Christmas tree.

  1. The body for the peacowl was punched with the Owl-punch and then I snipped off the feet and ears of the owl, to get the round body for the peacowl.
  2. As the next step I punched a pair of yellow feet, inked them with red ink and glued them behind the body of the peacowl.
  3. A punched heart is the beak of the peakowl.
  4. I layered the punched eyes ( all punched with the OWL-Punch) over it.
  5. Last part for the body was to use one of the snipped-off-feet as hair for the peacowl.
  6. I used a gold-gel marker to decorate it.
  7. The feathers were made after I watched a tutorial for a Thanksgiving table setting by Kim Burmeister (one of my crafting-idols). Therefore, you use a scallop circle and fold it like its shown on the video and you get pretty feathers. I made these using a dark-blue patterned paper and then adhered the "feathers" onto the back of the body.
  8. The last step was to decorate the feathers with rhinestones in blue and green for the peacock-eye effect.

I hope you all like this creation.

Have a crafty day!!!
