What A Hoot (Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring What A Hoot.   If you have come here from Lela Norris's Blog you are on the right path! I loved her card!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost, we have a list of participants.


When I saw this stamp set I knew my daughter would love it because she loves owls. 



 It is a great little stamp for Halloween, but for some reason I could not stop obsessing over the wing.  All I saw was a petal.    It was all I could think about. So much so that when I got the stamp set, I HAD to create this out of the box card!  


*Stamped Thistle ink on Thistle cardstock to create the petals.  
*Fussy cut the petals out.
*I assembled my flower.  I used a bit of Thistle Ribbon.  The center of the flower is Thistle ink stamped on to the white space in a scrap of the Seaside B& T.  
* Placed the flower on the Seaside B & T
*Added pennats cut from Seaside B & T and Thistle Cardstock

Here is a close up shot!   I rolled the petals of the flower a bit and used adhesive foam for a bit of dimension.
