Blue Pun Fun

Oh yeah...I'm still having a ton of fun with my new stamp set...Pun Fun! When my friend Shawn gave it to me, she mentioned that the whale was her favorite stamp, so I decided that's what I'd use for her thank you note. I used Phrases for a Friend for the sentiment...I just love how it's chunky and bold, with a dash of fun thrown in : ) . The Pun Fun set includes the sentiment "Get Whale Soon" ... I'll use that another time. Here's a close-up of that happy little whale ~So, I was laying in bed last night & had this card in my head (come on, I know that happens to you too, lol!)...and the part I was excited to try, was the waves. I was thinking that if the corner rounders made good scallops, then one of my fabulous punches should make waves...right? Well, sure enough, the Slit Punch makes perfect waves : ) !!! Here's a photo of how I made 'em ~ Just make sure you leave a tiny space on the base and side of the punch, like you see in the photo. It's really easy. I do better with making my scallops and waves from right to left, but you can do it either way, whatever works for you!

And while I had those supplies out...I also made this "Thank ewe" note ~
And this Congratulations card (the pun fun set has the sentiment "you're a blast" with the rocket ...which is another great option) ~


Here's a close-up of the rocket : ) ... you can see the silver metalic accents made with the Zig Painty Pen and the shimmer from the Dazzling Diamonds glitter~
Ballet Blue is actually very pretty, although you'd never know it from looking at the photos...it's a much softer shade than what's showing up in the photos. Certain colors are just like that. Even my full spectrum light failed me on this one. Oh well, you get the idea.
Gotta go, time to watch a movie with the DH : ) !!
