Guess Who?

**Note** The pattern for the gift card on the "Meet Catnip" post was not printing out to the true size...the problem has been corrected. Sorry if any of you tried it and had problems with it!!!

Phew!! Made it just in time for a post today!!! Next in line of our new designs is Peeking Hoot (of Hoot & Annie fame):



Pull the insert piece up and a message appears:



Click here for a pattern. As usual, cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. There are four pattern pieces for this project, plus the actual card. For the card...cut a piece of cardstock to 6" x 6" and fold in half to make a 3" x 6" card.

There are 3 pieces that make the front of the card...I cut them out of 3 different, coordinating papers. Cut a hole in the middle of the top 2 pieces (you can use a yellow Marvy circle punch if you have one). Line the 3 pieces up (as shown below) and tape together from the backside:



Apply double stick tape to all the tabs. The last piece is the insert piece...put the insert piece into the piece you just taped together, fitting it between the tabs. It should look like this:



Remove the backing from the double stick tape and attach to the card. To add Hoot and the sentiment to the card...punch more circles with a yellow Marvy circle punch. Glue stamped, colored and cut image of Hoot onto one circle...stamp the sentiment on another circle and leave one circle blank. The best way to position these decorated circles onto the insert piece is to flip the card over and fit each circle right through the punched holes on the front. Here's a picture of the insert piece so you can get a better idea of what I'm doing:



Once you've done that, you can stamp another sentiment on the inside of the card:



Here are the stamps I'm giving away today:



The Hoot & Annie stamp is not new, but it just went too perfectly with the others to leave it out!! If you would like to win these stamps, leave me a comment by midnight on Saturday, June 27...and I'll announce a winner on Sunday, June 28. Tell me a silly fact about yourself. Me? My left ankle clicks when I walk down stairs...so, you'll hear step, click, step, click... ha! ha! Have fun and good luck to all!!!

Great card, Jean! Definitely gotta try it for myself, so thanks for including the template!! Hmmm, a funny fact about myself...I don't like rice unless it's in sushi or covered in gravy or chili! :D

A silly thing about me is that I always have at least 6 different boxes of cereal at my house. My friend says that I have a cereal buffet :0) Thanks for the chance to win.

I love your little owls, they are so adorable! A silly thing about me...I mix up my words. I will say "I went to the Shower Flop" instead of " I went to the Flower Shop" I don't have dislexia or anything I just think my mouth can't keep up with my brain sometimes!

A silly thing about me is that when I have my migraines or headaches I have to tell my hubby to pull my hair it makes my head better for some reason. If he not there I end up pull or massaging my head and when I do it at work my hair is a mess, so when my hair's messy, you'll know I have a headache.LOL. Thanks again for the chance to win, you are so generous. Cute owl, it's my favorite animal.

Berenice said...

Your card is super cute!
A funny fact I collect items with figures of bees, I can't help myself they are too cute :)

*d* said...

what a great card idea once again. I love your owl stamps, too! A funny fact about myself is that I don't like eggplant - at all! :)

kinderdoodle said...

Thanks for the tutorial and template. The little owls are adorable and the card is so cute.
A funny fact about me is that the top of one of my ears looks different than the other. Linda/AR

Colleen said...

What a cute card! The owl stamps are really cute too. Let see a silly fact about me... when I am tired my speech starts having some of the difficulties my students (lisping, stuttering, word finding difficulties,etc)have. This is when I know I need to stop talking.

Janet said...

As usual, you come up with the cutest cards. Love Peeking Hoot. Your new stamps are great!! Now, something silly about me - whenever we travel, I gotta come home and eat my udon; tempura udon is even better.

Dawne said...

Shari said...

Thanks for another great design & project! My silly thing is that I LOVE (and always will) LOVE LOVE LOVE to watch cooking shows, but ABSOLUTELY can't cook. Lucky for me and my family that my husband is an excellent cook!

Hoot Jean!
Love your owls...TFS the card pattern. Silly or weird...Love tomatoes in a deluxe burger or cooked in spaghetti sauce, but put 'em in a fresh salad...yuk, yuk, yuk! Hoot, Hoot! Dori

Nikki said...

I have not seen the owl before so I appreciated your adorable card. You are just such a creative genius. It's funny that I like to eat the same cereal every morning and I must top it off w/ walnuts and yogurt.

Lisa said...

I love your stamps and this is just another stamp I have to add to my collection. My son says I'm silly because I'll order a hamburger without onions but instead of fries I'll have onion rings.

Pineapple Cove said...

Thanks Jean for the tutorial..loving the owls! I gotta try this card out.

Silly thing about me is that I love cracking my neck. It feels so good, but I don't realize that it's pretty loud and freaks people out all the time.

Thanks for sharing!!

Hi Jean, thanks for the great ideas! A funny fact about me, whenever I'm upset, I clean like crazy. So when my house is spotless, you know something's up. :)

eunice said...

I Love it! Your take on this slider card is so, so cute! It's even cuter cuz of HOOT! When I was in high school, I used to collect OWLs because I used to love to HOOT! My friends and I used to walk home and have HOOTing contests to see who could HOOT the loudest & longest...of course I always won! LOL! HOOOOOT!!!!!

grace said...

Love your adorable stamps and creative cards. A silly thing about me is I can imitate the sound of a coqui frog on the piano and they'd respond. Heehee. KO-KEE.

tenn said...

Aww... so cute! I like the message on the stamp! Ok, a silly thing about me is I can walk in to walls, poles, mostly walls! I don't know what it is, but it hapens all the time! Hahaha!!! Funny story, those poles in front of walmart, yup, I've walked into them, so embarrasing!

Hi Jean,

Thanks for sharing another cute card.

A silly fact about me would have to be that I've got to always have something sweet after my meal, preferably a chocolate chip cookie.
