Owl as Rudolph??!!

Have I got your attention with today's title?!  Yep, thought so.  You didn't think you could make Rudolph from an owl did ya?  Well, as you can see Rudolph has many forms...LOL. 
Well, this is how it is done.  There is an adorable Owl punch from Stampin' Up! that I used.You can look here to get the idea of what this punch looks like for those who do not know.  I just took the main body of the owl and trimmed off the little feet.  I used all the parts that would be for the eyes, and then I remembered I had some "wiggle" eyes, and thought that would be a fun little addition to Rudolph.  I have a tree punch that looks like it has lost its leaves, and punched one of those out in black, and used some of the branches, and used them for his antlers.  For the background, I took the Top Note die from Stampin' Up, and sponged the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I used the background stamp from Stampabilities called "Swirls & Curls" and inked the stamp with Broken China Distress Ink and then stamped that onto the Top Note die I cut out in light blue card stock.  I added my "Merry Christmas greeting" and added some ribbon to the bottom. 
Hope Monday was kind to all of you!  We are gearing up for Thanksgiving aren't we.  It is suppose to be COLD here, and I am not looking forward to it.  I thought I would add that sentiment.  OK, friends, be good to one another!

  1. Kari - I didn't think about using the owl punch for Rudolph - great idea!!! And I always forget that I can use my distress inks for stamping - not just for blending. Thanks for the reminder!! I think Broken China is my favorite color.

  2. Kari, you are so creative. Your cards are adorable, and this one is really a fun idea.

    Keep up the great work your site is really looking nice!!!
