A Flock of Owls

Do owls even travel in a flock? 
The answer I found using Google:
This is one of the most frequently asked questions about owls. The most accepted term is, a parliament, for a group of Owls.  Really they are solitary creatures. 
When I see them around my property they are always alone. 

Why the ramble?  lol 
I was trying to figure out what to call this month's Thank you cards.
I just got Stampin' Ups! Owl Punch.  I had to make some of these cute bookmarks
I saw on Ilina Crouse's blog.  For these I used wiggle eyes.  It is so fun to make these.  I see lots of scraps being used up with this punch.  :)

On this owl I used all the punch parts to create the owl.  I recommend the
Quickstik Tool.  With my Carpal Tunnel I can't do fine stuff like the eyes or SU's  Rhinestones without this tool.

Then I had to case this little guy. 
Owls morphing into bats are everywhere. 
Handy tool tip: Using a post it as an extender.
I used the Designer Label punch to punch out a head at the neckline. I used
a post it to hold the punch shape.  Slid it into the punch and got this cool head shape.
The BOO is created with Lovely Letters Alphabet.  I used the 1" Circle Punch for these.  I thought it would look girly, but the vines just help the spooky look. 
 I sponged the edges of the bat with White Craft Ink. 
 A Tangerine Tango Top Note sponged aroud the edges with Black, and a 2.5" Circle Punch moon from Daffodil Delight make a great base for this bookmark.  I cut 2 slits in the Top Note,  3" down from the top edge, 1/2" apart by 11/2" long using my 12" Fiskars cutter.  I hand cut the mouth with fangs.  Not the easiest thing to cut out, but then I wasn't making 100!  I've got a cute Halloween hand out!

Happy Stamping!
