In trying to think of a birthday card to make for my son-in-law, I was a little stumped this year. Last year I got an idea for a Star Wars card that I probably mostly copied from an idea I saw online. I thought it turned out great and he liked it! Right up his alley! But this year, the other things I knew he liked were a little harder to come up with in a card. When I saw an idea of using the Owl Punch somewhat like this, I decided to go with a "generic" monster/sci fi/comic character/whatever card for him. This is what materialized and I like it!
The Owl Punch is one of the greatest tools you can own! Not that I think of these things, but other stampers come up with a multitude of ways to use our Stampin' Up! punches and make them worth their weight in gold for crafting! To make my little monsters (or whatever they are!) I punched the owl, drew on his mouth and teeth with a Stampin' Write Black Marker and colored in the teeth with the Signo Gel Pen. For the arms I stuck a little strip of paper in to punch just the feet of the owl and then cut the strips to make arms. I punched out the white eye circles with the Owl Punch although I colored them in with black around my Googly Eyes.
If you are looking for a male birthday card, for child or adult, this is a good one and fun to make! If you prefer just stamping your monsters, there is the Make a Monster stamp set!
