Is it an owl or…

(if viewing from a feed, you may need to come to the blog to view the video.

Hi Stampers!  I was playing with one of our sneak peek stamp sets, Animal Stories, that is in our new catalog.   I couldn’t get past thinking it looked like a cat instead of an owl!

Here is a quick video for how to turn him from a hoot to the cat’s meow:

I used a Stamp A Ma Jig and the whale stamp that comes in Animal Stories to make his tail.  A Chocolate Chip marker for eyes and whiskers.  Pixie Pink marker for ears and nose.   Dusty Durango card is 6 x 3 folded to make a 3×3 lil card.   Mustard brads, 1-3/4″ Circle punch on a 2 x2 chocolate chip square.  The DSP is Razzleberry Lemonade strip 1″ x 3″.   I put some dimensionals under the circle, too.

    Great Idea !!! Thank you for sharing.

    I saw it on one site and the demonstrator had taken the scallop circle and cut it (about 2 1/2 scallops) and made little wings for the owl. Then it really looked like an owl.

  6. This is so adorable! I can’t wait to give it a try when my set gets here today! Thanks for sharing.

    Very creative. I prefer the cat to the owl and would love to see more altered animals.

    I though this was very creative and loved it. One fat cat for sure. I really wish I could enjoy all the sets from Stampin Up I guess I can just look and drool here from Mexico. I still would love to be a demonstrator for the product.!!
    Be Blessed!

    Too funny. The first time I saw that owl, I thought — just add a tail and you’ve got a cat. But I never would have thought to use the whale for the tail. Cool.

  11. Linda, you are the BEST! Cute, cute, cute!!!!

  12. Oh my gosh, I love this. I’m such a cat person … oh I can’t wait to use this!! Thanks so much!!!

    I love the cat!!! I don’t care for the stamp as an owl and thought I would never use it. Now I will use it… as a cat! Thanks

    Linda – this is ADORABLE! I purchased this set because of the whale – now I can use the “owl” as a cat too! Thanks so much for sharing this!
