Good Morning and Happy Monday! Sometimes in life you need a break. I took a much needed 3 week break from all of my design teams. I feel refreshed and ready to create!
Today is a start of a new challenge from Always Fun Challenges. This week’s theme is “Punny!” The challenge will run from today, Monday, June 17th to Saturday, June 23rd.
Here is my inspiration for you:
Urban Dictionary defines the word “Punny” as “a play on words for the word “funny”. It is a pun in itself.
With this definition I knew I wanted to use a Lawn Fawn stamp set. To me, Lawn Fawn screams “Punny”. I decided on the mini stamp set “So Jelly”. I used my Jaded Blossom card mat die and cut the base. Then I used the star image and I free hand stamped a background. I then stamped the start on another piece of paper and took my Tim Holtz distress blender tool and “colored” the star. Then, I fussy cut it out. Here is a trick to get rid of the white on your fussy cut images, use a dark colored copic, I used C7, and shade the edge!
Next, I used a pop dot for dimension. I then took another piece of white scrap paper and cut out the dimensional banner. I placed the cut-out piece back into the paper and I used the Tim Holz distress blender tool to “color” the banner. I didn’t like the dimension of the banner, so I snipped the ends and used more pop dots! I then grabbed a card base and shaded the edges with the “carved pumpkin” in and glued everything down! Below is a list of what I used with links on where to purchase!
Here is what I used:
