Owl Punch Extravaganza.... THE REDO!!!!


Welp gang... the bummer of all bummers happened yesterday.  It is something that happens to EVERY crafter.  I grabbed a white-based card to move it out of the way and when I let go of the card I saw that I SMEARED INK ON IT!!!!  I completely ruined an entire night's work in a split second.  As it turns out though, this accident is actually a happy accident because I got the opportunity to redo the card and I think I like the second version SOOOOOOO much more!!!   The second version still uses Stampin Up's retired Simply Stars and a current Gorgeous Grunge.  But to this one I added the little stars using Stampin Up's Banner punch and Banner Blast Stamp set.  Instead of the Chalk Talk die, I used EK Success' Notebook Border punch.  And finally, instead of hand writing the sentiment, I printed it out on the computer and punched it out with a 3/4" circle.  Oh Man.... this version turned out WAY BETTER!!!!!

Here is the original card I ruined; it was originally posted on July 4th:


So for the record.... the first Uncle Sam card will not be in the 20 set of cards, instead, the recipient of the 20 owl-punch-themed cards will receive the redo posted at the top.

If YOU would like to be the one receiving the 20 cards, simply go to StampinUp.com and click on "store" at the top.  Place the items you'd like to order in the shopping cart and input the hostess code where provided to get full credit for your purchase.  The hostess code is UCUFWPDU.  The person with the largest order total using my hostess code will be receiving all 20 cards.

THE BEST PART:  You won't have to wait to receive your order.  Your order will ship to you within two business days!!!  No more waiting for a show to "close" to get your goodies.  Good luck everyone!!!

***Because of today's little hiccup, card #19 will be completed and posted tomorrow.
