Welcome to What Will You Stamp? This week’s challenge is using the Still Night stamp set. We’d love to see you create something from this set for our gallery. Please join the fun!
It’s getting close to Halloween, so this Night Owl is saying, “trick or treat.” Keep reading for my spooky story.
The owl is from the Still Night stamp set, cut with a Night Owl die. He is stamped in Night of Navy ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. I rounded him with a stylus to give him some shape, so he could sit comfortably on his branch.
The branch is a Night Owl die also, and I cut two; one in Night of Navy cardstock, and one in Thick Whisper White cardstock.
The background, starry, sky is a piece of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. Isn’t it perfect for a Halloween sky? It’s bordered with Pumpkin Pie cardstock on a Night of Navy card base. You can’t have Halloween with some orange!
Another die in the Night Owl die set made those cute, little orange doodads. I first thought they were stars, but they line up nicely with the tree branch, so they look like orange blossoms.
“Trick or treat” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, cut with the Classic Label Punch.
Are you ready for my spooky story?
It was warm the night I was working away in my craft room, so the window was open. I had stamped the owl, and was deciding how to color him, when I heard hooting. Was I imagining things? I hadn’t heard an owl hooting for years! I made my husband go outside with me to confirm I wasn’t crazy, and there it was sitting on the chimney next door! It was able to see me through the window! Coincidence?
If you follow my blog, you know I make paper animals come alive. But, this was a little too real, even for me!
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed my spooky story. Don’t forget to create a Still Night project, and post it in our gallery.
The supplies I used are listed below. Have fun shopping!
