This cute little owl from the Stampin’ Up! Owl Occasions in the Holiday Catalog is to die for! He is so adorable you can hardly go wrong. I stamped him in Tangerine Tango on this Early Espresso branch and added Summer Starfruit leaves. I also added a touch of Perfect Plum to his front feathers with marker and adhesive-backed Googlie eyes, also from the Holiday Catalog.
The balloons were stamped in Tangerine Tango, Perfect Plum and Summer Starfruit and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch. Then I knotted one end of some Pool Party bakers twine to attach below the balloons, then I tied all the strings together into his ‘hand’. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the knots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the balloons.
The scallops below the picture were created with the same color as the balloons. I used the Scallop Punch and punched a longer section than I needed so I could trim it out where I wanted the scallops to land. Doing this allowed me to stagger the scallops.
Enjoy!
