Owl Corkboard

This project let me use several of the new goodies I got from the new catty! I was soooo excited to open my box, I almost couldn't decide what to play with first! The cork is one of those new things. I think the only not-new things are the Jumbo Eyelet, the Scallop Square die, and the Little Leaves sizzlet die!

One of the things in the new catty that I have fallen in love with is this little owl punch. One punch punches out all the little pieces to make this adorable little guy! And it is easy to only punch what you need in each color too. I have seen lots of dark brown owls made with this, but I prefer the more muted colors. Most owls I have seen blend into their surroundings well. This little guy is made with Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand, and the dark brown is Chocolate Chip. I also used the Chocolate Chip marker brush tip to ink the edges of the owl body and belly to more clearly define them. It only takes a moment and it really makes the layers pop.

The Paper Daisy at the top is died using Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade and an Aquapainter. I tell you, these daisies are adorable! And there are so many cool techniques you can use on them! The center is one of the new Vintage brads with one of the smallest Pearls in the very center. LOVE these too! I swear I have used about 1/4 of the package of 150 pearls, and about the same of the rhinestones!!!

How thick was your cork? I have some that is 39 cm but I can not get it through my Big Shot. Any suggestions?

Love your project!

I used the cork that you can purchase from Stampin Up which is about 3/32" thick by my ruler. You get six 6"x13" pieces for 9.95. I hope that helps :)
