  5. adorable!! funny, I just got out that same owl punch for a couple Halloween cards!! I will have to try the little penguins!

  6. Hi Darlene. After a 10 yr hiatus with stamping, I find myself overwhelmed. As, I want to buy EVERYTHING! Any tips on what type of purchases to make first or prioritize? what color papers to start with and build upon, buying stamps (how many happy bdays/thank yous do we really need?), markers, embossing colors etc.

    Happy Stamping,

  23. I have really gotten a lot of use from my owl punch, which I bought because of your darling cards. I am so excited to try this card. I don’t have the thinlit, but I’ll try a technique you showed in another video to cut a flip card. What fun. Thanks, Darlene!

  24. Maria Rodriguez says:

    Oh Darlene, this punch is one of the best punches from SU, it’s one that you can use over and over again, to make the cutes little critters ever!!

  31. Jill Van Dieren says:

    that is way too cute. Thanks for sharing Love it!!!!

  32. I love the owl punch!!! Love how you come up with such creative and great cards

  33. I love it when you break out the owl punch!

  34. Love the card. I debated buying the thinlit but didn’t think I would use it often because it was limited to one shape. I do have a question about the Tiny Stars stamp, does the fine pwder make a difference? I think I have regular clear pwdr and my background seems to be a blur after heating.

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      I haven’t noticed a huge difference between the ultra fine and the regular, but I was using Stampin’ Up! before, which is a really good quality brand.

  35. Such a cute card! love the owl punch and the star background is just awesome, I love this stamp.

  36. Patricia Oakley says:

    Your card is wonderful. I actually bought that owl punch after watching one of your videos. I am amazed at all the things that can be made using that punch. I love watching your videos, you explain every procedure so completely, making them easy to follow. I think I will use your video to make a Christmas card with the penguins. I used your previous owl videos to make a birthday and a Christmas card for my granddaughter who loves owls. Thank you for all you do for us.


  37. Sharon Hayes says:

    I love your penguin card. I have used my owl punch to make grandchildren cards. Last fall I made 25 witches with the owl punch. They rode brooms on treat bags i made for my grandson’s class. You are an inspiration, Darlene. I have seen penguins on Pinterest, but your penguins make me want to make some, and I am sure that I will. Thanks for sharing.

  38. You are amazing! I don’t know how you come up with all your beautiful card ideas. Thanks for your inspiration and teachings.

  39. Darling card, Darlene! It takes some time to create but it’s so worth it! Love the fun design and those adorable penguins!

  40. What a cute card…..I am always amazed with what you come up with … you have to have the best dreams ever…..You just have to be the most creative and cleverest person ever. A Penguin from
    an Owl punch geeze……you are the reason I bought this punch in the first place it was from your
    Owl punch video which I saw last year. Girl YOU so ROCK!!

  41. I love it…. so creative and versatile. A good cup of coffee. 🙂

    • Such a cute card. The penguins are adorable. I like the star background stamp as well. Bought it after seeing you use it on cards. Thank you for such inspiration.
