Christmas Creatures

Hello, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!  This new set of stamps, just in time to use for Christmas, is just too cute! I'm getting a head-start on my supply of cards for the holidays! I was going through a broken plastic cardstock and paper container, when I came across this red and white background paper - perfect for these stamps! The stamp set is called Christmas Creatures, (shown below) released this month by Chocolate Baroque! (click on the name, and it will take you directly to the page on the Chocolate Baroque site) I absolutely love owls, and I am a fan of the Snowy Owl. I think this little guy is in need of a trip to the hair salon, though!






















 
I went out into the backyard, and found a little stick to use as her perch. I used a branch punch and cut just two sets of the three "toes" from the ends of the branch for Owl's feet. I cut apart some white turkey feathers from my stash, and glued them in layers over the stamped image. I found some shiny black rhinestones to use for her eyes.

Below, I wanted to show that the mistletoeflake had gotten stuck in the tree branches, and part of it was dangling down over the owl's head. Am I overthinking this? The snowflake is from the Gift of Christmas set, shown below.



I love the fact that this little bird even decorated her small plain tree with a beautiful bauble!

  2. I'm in hoots of laughter (unfortunate choice of words there but I can barely type & my husband will wonder what is going on in my room!). How apt to be using turkey feathers???? & I love the story of the mistletoe landing in the branches. That little ornament really helps accent her eyes too.

  3. Clare - that owl looks as if he's had a terrible shock! (Looks a bit like my horribly furry Maine Coons ...) Seriously though, a super card. and I love the fluffy bits. Sarah x
