Let's Do Lunch...with Bella...in the Car - Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Funny Card


Happy Sunday everyone.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  We went to see the cherry blossom trees blooming yesterday in Sao Paulo.  It was a lot of fun but very crowded.  We even took Bella and she loved not only the car, but the whole day.  


Wanted to share another quick card I made the other day for this week's Stamp Ink Paper Challenge -  Funny/Punny cards.  You have until tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern time to get one entered!!  

I started with two pieces of this blue paper I had in my stash.  I loved that it already looked distressed and didn't need to do much with them.  I started by using Ocean Border by Impression Obsession.  There are two dies in the set that coordinate with each other and I die cut two pieces of the same paper each with a different die.  Then I distress the edge for the top die with Broken China distress ink.  This way there will be some dimension between the waves.  


Then I stamped and die cut the sailboat from Float My Boat by Lawn Fawn.  I adhered the boat at top of the front of my A2 card front and then adhered the piece of blue cardstock that has the distressed edge on it.  


Next I colored in my sailboat with some Tombow markers and adhered the other piece of blue cardstock to the card front just under the first piece.


Next I pulled out a set by Rubbernecker Stamps, which I believe is called Let's Do Lunch.  I have had this set in my stash for years and, unfortunately, it is no longer being made.  But I think you can find it for sale online or you can use this idea with other fish images out on the market.  Using Versafine Onyx Black ink, I stamped the trio of fish on the right side, the worm on the hook as if it was coming off the sailboat, and the phrase.  


Then I colored the images in with Tombow Markers.  I also stamped some of the plants on the bottom and colored those in also.  


Lastly, I added some stickles to the fish, the leaves on the plants, and the sailboat to give some extra texture to the card.  Done!  I love this set and am surprised the stopped making it.  It's adorable!!  

Well, I hope y'all have a fantastic rest of the weekend!  If you get a card made in time for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge - just click HERE to upload it.  Good luck.  Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -
