Fabulous Fun Friday — Very Pun-y

I love making cards, sending cards and giving cards as gift sets. So this set, Puns of Praise C1538 from Close To My Heart, is a perfect fit! I love the small, simple images and if I want to use the image without the “pun” underneath, it’s easy enough to mask off that part.
And ya know what’s also cool about this set? I was able to make a dozen cards in practically no time (AND I used up some of my scraps… and we all know how much I love using my scraps!)

Here’s a group shot:

The first thing I did was stamp a bunch of images on white cardstock, often using scrap pieces. I made sure to leave enough space so I could die cut around the image. I didn’t do much coloring — just a bit here and there. I used dies from Spellbinders and Sizzix to make layers. Take a look:

Both are pretty much the same, but using a different colored cardstock for the back layers offers a bit of a change. (The dots embossing folder is from Cuttlebug/Provo.

And a different look:

The chevron ribbon is also by Close to My Heart (attached using Therm O Web’s Super Tape); the die is Spellbinders Labels 8, raised on foam squares.

(die is Sizzix ???)

I have other variations … I’ll save those for a rainy (read lazy!) day!
Thanks for stopping by!
