GUEST BLOGGER MARIA with her newest SU OWL punch character ...M.B. HEDGEH-OWL

I am happy to WELCOME BACK guest blogger MARIA and her SU (Stampin Up) OWL punch critters she creates with it.  This one is sure to steal your heart!  Isn't he cute!  M.B. HedgehOWL named after Micheal Buble - hope I spelled that right and I am allowed to tell.  Doesn't he look like he should be holding a mic and singing?  : )

Ok so now on to Maria and her handsome HedgehOWL...


"Hello dear Followers of Cathie´s Sweetspot. I know I haven´t shown you any new Owl-punch animals in ages, but a lot of things happened in my life during the last months and that was why I wasn´t able to create any new tutorials for you. I hope you will still stick to my now and then Guest-appeareance on Cathie´s Blog as she is doing a wonderful job here.  Thank you Cathie that I´m still allowed to show my creations on your wonderful blog."

So here is my new tutorial:

Here fall/autumn is just arround the corner
and so a lil fellow came into my mind the other day.
My hands started working and created this little guy:

After long time thinking and discussion with a few friends I named him Mr. M.B. Hedgeh-owl.

The name should give it away that I did him with my lovely SU (Stampin Up) Owl-punch. I think he is just so cute :)

So here are written instructions on how I made him.
1. I cut out his body out of beige/cream cardstock and snipped of his ears and made a small nodge on the tophead.
2. I cut out a second body but only the down-half of it to have his feet and a little space above it. Then i cut little arms on this feet on both sides.
3. I punched out a beige/cream heart and a pair of eyes for the little guy and a black nose with a simple whole punch.
4. I inked arround the edges of the body , arms and the heart with brown ink and a sponge dauber.
5. Then I started to glue the whole body together starting with the heart, which will be the nose of Mr. Hedgehowl and then added the black spot for his nose and his eyes.
6. Then I glued the arms on the back of his body.
7. Next step was to cut out his spikes with zig-zag-silouette-scissors, while using his body as template.
8. As last step glue the body on the spikes and voila...he is finished!!!!!!!

If this instructions are too complicated to understand for you...I appologize...but in that case I have a little goodie for you first ever official online crafting Video-tutorial.

Please bear with me as it´s my really first video-tutorial for a blog. I hope you will like it a little bit....sooo here it is:


I (Maria) also made a fall card with this little fellow that will be sent to one of my biggest craft idols soon.

What do you think?

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
See you all soon. :)
