Twitterpated - Yes, its a real word!

Owl Builder Punch Gold Soiree DSP Stampin Up You Plus Me Occasions 2015
My owls aren't nearly as grumpy as the owl in Bambi! 
Bambi. That's where you know it from. Disney's movie Bambi. The Owl, telling the young Bambi and Thumper why everyone is acting all lovey-dovey. Don't try and say you haven't seen Bambi... its from 1942 and still as cute as ever!
But the word is actually older than that, I won't bore you with my love of historical romance novels, but I can tell you its circa the late 1600's from the words "Twitter" meaning tremulous excitement, and "Flutterpated" frivolously excited... Ahem. Lots of excitement packed into that word. Today though, nobody uses such an old-timey word commonly. t its still cute! :-) Twitterpated. Defined as: "Excited or overcome by romantic feelings; Smitten. "

Anyhow, now that the vocabulary lesson is over, and I'm hoping you'll forget the mention of my reading habits, here are the cards that I was inspired to make. Ever since I saw this set, I pictured that old owl in Bambi! LoL

I'm not about to try making Bambi Punch art, but the Owl comes together quickly with the Owl Builder Punch! The card base is Soft Suede, the front embossed with the Hardwood Embossing Folder. I layered Crisp Cantaloupe on the suede, and a piece of the Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper over that. For the Owl body I punched Soft Suede, the vest is Pistachio Pudding, the eyes are So Saffron and Black. The heart is actually from the Confetti Heart Punch, I have a ton of that confetti! I die cut the Twitterpated, stamped in Garden Green, out with the Word Bubbles Framelits. I added some hearts, die cut in Calypso Coral and Craisp Cantaloupe, using the Hearts A-flutter and Hearts Collection framelits, and some little embossed hearts from the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit. The Big Shot is getting a work-out and earning its keep, this Valentine's season!

Going dotty! 

The second card has the same base, Soft Suede, but I didn't emboss it. I layered Pistachio Pudding, some Garden Green background DSP, and a piece of the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Paper. I "taped" down the coral dotted piece with some of the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, and I used a piece of that for the "perch" the owl is sitting on. The owl is unched from the Brushed Gold Cardstock, though I really did not get a better photo of it. Its soft and pretty in person, trust me! I went with a dotted green vest, and pistachio green eyes, and to finish the card off I added some of the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.

I have had this card on my mind, and I think it came out well. I might look up some Bambi punch art, but then again... might be too fussy for me! :-)
