Pun Intended

Pun Intended

 

I’m always looking for stamp sets are fun and work well for masculine cards. And the Pun Intended stamp set is both.

This stamp set is available at a special price to those who place a $200+ order. You can use your earned rewards to purchase any or all of these six exclusive sets or your choice of catalogue product.

I kept this card simple in black and white for a bit of an old time feel for this Father’s Day card. It would make a great Happy Birthday card as well.

Stampin Up Pun intended Stamp Set

The camera image was stamped three times and then cut and punched out in various sizes of circles.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals between the punched layers to make the camera lens stand out. I also raised up the greeting. Since the Thoughtful Banners greetings are photopolymer, you can arch the greeting right onto the acrylic block.

 

Pun Intended Inside Greeting

 For me, the highlight of this stamp is the matching images and greetings.

Introducing…Dapper Denim

 Stampin Up Swirly Birds in Dapper Denim

Dapper Denim is one of the five new In Colors for 2016-2018. For this card, I paired it with the Swirly Birds photopolymer stamp set which is also available as a bundle.

I created the tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon. I then added the tag to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 And copper is back! I love this new embossing powder and there is metallic thread to match.

Balloon Celebration – So Simple to Make

 Stampin Up Balloon Celebration Bundle

 

This card was quick to make with the Balloon Celebration Bundle that includes the stamp set and Balloon Bouquet punch. I also used the retiring Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper. Once I selected the paper, I kept the same colour theme for the balloons.

An Easter Card Cheat?

Stampin' Up! Easter Card with Remarkable You and Crazy About You

 

I sort of felt like I was cheating when I made my Easter cards as I didn’t use an Easter stamp set. Instead, I made my cards with two of my favourite sets – Remarkable You for the image and Crazy About You for the greeting. 

To make the card, I stamped the image and greeting and then colored with the Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry. That’s it.

Timeless Gold

Stmpin up Timeless Textures in Gold

 

This was a quick card to make featuring gold, gold and more gold. In fact, only gold and white.

I stamped and heat embossed the scroll leaves image from Timeless Textures in gold embossing powder and cut it out with the Lots of Labels Framelits. I also cut a slightly larger label from Gold Foil Paper.

The greeting is from Rose Garden and was also heat embossed in gold.

Gold embellishment complete the card – Gold Sequin Trim, Gold 1/8" Ribbon and Gold 5/8" Satin Ribbon.

Grateful Bunch Tag Card

  Stampin Up Grateful Bunch Tag Card  

I have to admit this was a bit of a test my patience card. I needed to allow drying time for the scrunched flowers when I really just wanted to get the card done. But Sophie, my canine stamping buddy, stepped in to help.

She somehow managed to adhere herself to a roll of glue dots and by the the time I picked all of the glue dots off the dog and made her a grooming appointment, my flowers were dry. Is it just me? Do you ever have stamping days like this? Sigh.

 

This card uses the Grateful Bunch Bundle that includes the stamp set and the Blossoms Punch. My colors were Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz. I stamped the images onto the Whisper White card stock and then used a Blender Pen to color in the leaves and flowers with ink.  Don’t forget to stock up on Lost Lagoon and the other retiring 2014-2016 In Colors while you can.

The tag was made with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and is 2" wide which fits perfectly.  And the greeting was punched with the Triple Banner Punch. I can’t believe how often I reach for this punch.

 Grateful Bunch Stamps and Blossom Punch card

Have you ever heard a stamper say that they weren’t sure when to stop. There is such a fine line between the right amount of white space and going too far. I know I have crossed the line a time or two. 

The best of the best tool for just the right mix of color and white is a background image stamp set. And the fantastic new Timeless Textures can’t be beat. I love this stamp set for filling in the backgrounds an highlighting the stamped image. You’ll want this stamp set as your helping hand. 

 

Grateful Bunch Punched Flowers l

 Punch four of each flower from Lost Lagoon card stock with the Blossom Punch included in the bundle.

Spritz each flower with water and scrunch. Open slightly and allow to dry before adhering together and adding the sequin to the middle.
