I "Wheelie" Like You - "Punny" Card with Viva Las Vegas Stamps
Hello everyone. Getting started late today. Yesterday was just a crazy busy day - but fun. First it was a doctor appointment for my little respiratory issue. Meds have kicked in and all should be fine soon! Then I had someone in town come by to make a signature/photo book for her daughter's "Sweet 15" party. In Spanish it is called a Quinceañera. In Brasil the celebration is called "festa (or baile) de debutantes" or "festa de quinze anos". Kind of like a debutante ball. We used some beautiful vintage/shabby chic papers by Arte Facil Artesenato, a beautiful Butterfly Gown Girl die by Gina Marie Designs, and some purple glittered fun foam.
Here's a shot of the book -
And here is a close up of the Butterfly Gown Girl die after it was cut and embossed into the fun foam. Love how this looks!
Today I have another "punny" card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge "punny" theme. Again, super simple. I used another octopus image from Viva Las Vegas Stamps called "Otto's Sweet Ride" by the amazing artist Brian Kesinger.
I started with a top folding A2 base of white cardstock. I adhered a piece of metallic silver cardstock to the card front. Then, because I did not have the right sentiment for the image, I typed up "I "wheelie" like you!" on the computer and printed it out onto white cardstock. Then I stamped the image above the phrase and colored him in with Copic markers.
Then I die cut the phrase/image using the largest die from the Die-namics Pierced Rectangle STAX, adhered a piece of white fun foam to the back, then adhered it to a piece of black cardstock, 3 1/2" x 4 3/4", which I then adhered to the card front.
The last part was to apply a dab of glossy accents to each of the eyes.
Done! Like I said, another easy card. You can even change the phrase to say "I wheelie LOVE you!" I hope you enjoyed this quick card. Remember to make your own "punny" card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge! You have until Sunday, August 7th, at 8:00pm to enter a card! Until next time -
Hugs from Brasil -
