CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #41–Just for the Pun of It!


Happy Friday, crafty friends!!


I’m back today to share the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge with you – this week’s challenge is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project using a punny sentiment in your design.


We have another fabulous sponsor this week – Skipping Stones DesignsSkipping Stones Designs is an online retailer of clear polymer stamps – their designs are super cute and clever!!  They were kind enough to share some of their stamps with the Girl Fridays so that we could create some clever samples for your inspiration.  Wasn’t that nice of them?!  Skipping Stones Designs has also provided a fabulous prize for this week’s TGIF Club Winner, but you’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to see what it is.  Thank you, Skipping Stones Designs!!

CFC41 - Just for the Pun of It

I loves me some punny sentiments, so you can imagine the fun I had with this one!  I got to work with a super punny and cute set called Sassy Shoes – the name alone was meant for me (being the shoe ho that I am!  LOL)  I love the effect of a focal image being stamped in a lighter color, sort of like a shadow, and then the sentiment popped off in front of the image.  It’s a subtle effect, yet packs a punch – don’t you think?

STAMPS:  Sassy Shoes (Skipping Stones Designs), Dippy Dots Background (Paper Smooches – release 3/1)
INK:  Shell (A Muse Studio), Onyx Black VersaFine and VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush (PTI), Solar White (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES:  Sweet Blush Satin Ribbon (PTI), Self-Adhesive Pearls (Stampin’ Up!), Double Embossed Scallop Punch (EK Success), Corner Chomper (W R Memory Keepers)


That’s it for me today, kids!  I’ll be spending the next couple of days in Mexico with my mother-in-law while she has some dental work done – yeah, don’t ask!  LOL  I hope to get some stamping time in this weekend though.  How about you – do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  If so, I’d love to hear all about them!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – I really appreciate your time!
