Mrs. Baker Owl Punch Art

Hi! Another Owl punch art for you! This time it's a cute baker :) I was so thinking of what to do with my "Homemade" stamp (#116978 p.18) and just hit an idea with one concept. Baking!!! One of my favorite things to do (for the ones who don't know). It's been one of my earlier passion since I was in my pre-teens :) Anyway, I just had to make this tag for the cakes my mom and I make. It's just perfect! I made 2 of them, one in red apron and one in pink apron!

How I made the Baker's Hat:
Use your Butterfly Punch #119848. Just cut half of the butterfly and use that side as the top and then cut the other half with the smaller piece as the hat band. I sponged the edges with "Tempting Turquoise" to give dimension.

How I made the Apron:
Use the Large Oval Punch to punch a small piece for the waist contour. Then use the Scallop Oval Punch to make the scallop edge of the apron. To make the white edge of the apron, use the Scallop Oval Punch twice to get a trim for the edge of the apron.

Supplies Used:
- Melon Mambo Ink Pad
- 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch #118874
- 2 Step Owl Punch
- Butterfly Punch
- Large Oval Punch
- Scallop Oval Punch
- 1/2" Circle Punch (for Owl's eyes and lids)

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

I'm so glad I am on your subscribe list....I so enjoy seeing what you do with the owl. I have always liked owls on cards and you have opened up so many ideas. I wish I could afford the punch. Punch is reasonable, but then there's the tax and shipping...but that's anywhere...haha Perhaps I'll find one on ebay that someone is tired of and wants to sell. I will keep you in mind if I want to buy local lady stopped being a demonstrator. Thank you for all you inspiration ....lobe you blog and details

I HAD to come check out your blog after I saw these little darlings over on Stampin' Connection! I LOVE THEM! I want my own but I need some clarification please (I'm so sorry - I read your post, all the way through, two times but I'm not getting it!)

The half of butterfly wing I get as the top of the chef's hat but then the other part of the hat is a mystery...

And then the skirt is a total mystery even though you've given such thorough instructions. I keep telling myself maybe if I just pull the punches out and try it will make sense... But I thought I'd just ASK if you have any other way to explain that may make it easier...

I have added your blog to my Google Reader (you are one talented lady!) and will check in with you often!

Thanks for the great inspiration!!!

Hugs, Christine aka The Stampin' Ninja
