This month’s stamp of the month is the cutest stamp set called A Little Bit of Pun. I love the little icons & the funny puns that go with each image & I have had a lot of fun creating with this stamp set. You can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product.
Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards I created with two of the images.
First up – We MERMAID to be friends – I thought this cute little mermaid’s tail appearing up around the sea of circles was cute & that gold sea grass – is actually one of the gold foil accents from the Better Together Complements cut into pieces. The circles were cut using the circle thin cuts. I gathered some of the fundamentals papers together along with plain card stock that I stamped onto with the In the Background stamp. all together they made a fun little sea ocean. The tails were coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers and highlighted with the Clear Shimmer Brush.
Next I played with You’re A Gem of A Friend. I stamped one gem with the saying in Pewter Exclusive Inks™, this allowed me to plan out my random background of just the Gem image in Heather Exclusive Inks™. I filled in the spaces with the small heart images. I added one of the silver foil borders from the Better Together Complements along with some silver shimmer trim. Stamped the gem again but this time embossed it with Ranger™ Silver Super Fine Embossing Powder & fussy cut it out & attached with a foam dot. I added a little extra shine with the Clear Shimmer Brush.
If you liked to play with A Little Bit of Pun — December Stamp of the Month, all you need to do is add it to your cart at full retail price of $27 OR, with your qualifying order of $75, add it at checkout for the promotional price of $7.50. You only have until Dec 31st, to own it.
