Whoo is One? Stamp Camp Options....

I had a request from one of my regular stamp camp attendees to start offering more scrapbooking options at my camps. To accommodate those who don't scrapbook, I designed a 6x6 scrapbook page that could be turned into a 3x6 card using the same supplies and the participants could do either project that best suited their needs. You could also make the 3x6 card a birthday card for a little kid by using the circle/number treatment that I used on the scrapbook page, but I used the Thinking of You stamp in my card example to illustrate how versatile stamps can be. :) All supplies SU! I used the Thoughts and Prayers set for the branch that the owl is sitting on and for the flower pattern on the Old Olive strip. That also showed the verstatility of stamps, because the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set is actually a sympathy set.
The owl was made with the wide oval punch, out of which I cut a tiny piece for the head using my 1 1/4" circle punch. One of the participants pointed out that if you had more of the resulting punched out shapes, they could look like leaves and I had a lightbulb moment and realized it could have been used as owl wings as well. If I did this project again, I would cut another one out just to use the pieces to make wings on the owl and that would make it even more adorable. :) I used the Boho Blossoms punch for the owl's feet. The design on the owl's belly was made with the new set Circle Circus and I used a retired alphabet for the red WHOO/IS/? The "Thinking of you" is also in the Thoughts and Prayers set. Bashful Blue/Old Olive/Kraft, and Chocolate Chip are the colors used for cardstock and Real Red is the red ink. Any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks so much for looking! I will post the remaining projects as the week progresses.
