It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players! Anne Marie is hostessing a Theme Challenge...Humor! So dust off those cute images and "punny" sentiments, and join in the fun! As for me, I did not have a lot of stamps to choose from, so I really had to think outside of the box. I hope you enjoy our little Scottie's "Big Dream"!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Improvising
The finished card measures 4-1/4" wide by 5-1/2" long.
- Dreamy clouds! I do not own a Stampin' Up! "Cloud" stamp, so I simply traced around the chipboard clouds from the On Board Merry Medley chipboard collection. A Stampin' Write Journaler did the trick! Tips: Before tracing around the clouds, use a Sanding Block to remove the little paper nibs. And make certain to wait until the journaler is completely dry...or your white clouds could become storm clouds!
- BIG! Need BIG letters in a snap? The Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Medium Sizzlets Dies are the perfect solution! And that adorable "Dotted" pattern? It is from the new Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper collection, available today!
- Scottie and the Giant Hydrant! What little boy dog doesn't dream of a Giant Fire Hydrant? A marriage of two stamp sets gives the illusion of a giant hydrant and a small dog. The scottie is courtesy of Friends Fur-ever. And the hydrant??? All I know is that it is from a vintage 1997 Stampin' Up! set. This was way before my Stampin' Up! time...but I know that someone out there knows the name of this set. It is probably one of those old "doggy" sets that I would LOVE to own!
So there you have it! A little humor on this first day of April...and that's no foolin'! As always, your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one. (I feel badly that I am so far behind in responding back to them.) Remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
