the paper players - it's very "punny"


OK...I'm not gonna lie. Anne Marie stumped me this week with the Paper Players sketch...it was a tough one for me! The challenge is to "tickle your funny bone" and I really don't have that many stamp sets that do this. I knew I had the retired Pun Fun set I could pull out, but I wanted something just a little different to work with. My mom happened to have a retired set called Very Punny and I thought I would do something with that, so here is what I came up with...

I ended up printing from the computer the sentiment "you are like no udder" because I wanted it a little bit bigger than what it was on the stamp itself.

To help me with the color scheme, I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown.


To match the sentiment "you are like no udder", I made one of the cows stand out a bit and gave her pink spots...with a little Dazzling Diamonds of course!


Stamp Set: Very Punny (retired)
Paper:
Basic Gray, Regal Rose, Basic Black, Lucky Limeade (striped DSP)
Ink: Basic Black, markers - Regal Rose
Accessories: Dimensionals, Pearl Accents
, 3/8" Basic Black Scallop Dotted ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds glitter (with 2-way glue pen)
Tools: Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, 1-1/3" Circle punch, 1-3/8" Circle punch, Itty Bitty Circle punch

I hope you'll come join in the fun and laughter at the Paper Players this week as we celebrate April being Humor Month! The rest of the design team has some fun cards for you to giggle at and get inspired to create something funny of your own!

What an udder-able card! Sorry, had to go there!

Udderly awesome, Heidi! What is not to love? A pink cow and plenty of polka dots, just say "fun" to me. Hmmm, probably shouldn't share this but when I was little, I was convinced that chocolate milk came from brown cows. I still get picked on from my family about it. So, pink cows must make strawberry-flavored milk, right? I'm totally ok with that. Lol! This is just too cute! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Big hugs! :)
