Pun Intended

It’s Thursday again and you know what that means…it’s time for another inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week we have a GREAT (and very easy) sketch.

I haven’t used my Pun Intended set for awhile now (and with the weather around here anymore it seems like one big joke!) I thought it would be a great idea to use it.  You also know that since it is a hostess set, it will be gone when the catalog retires!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded, stamp the heart in Real Read along the bottom 1/4 of the card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – three 1 1/4 x 3 3/4, stamp light bulb using Memento Black, color with Daffodil Delight Marker and add each to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp the little hear three times using Real Red, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Daffodil Delight – stamp greeting using Real Red, punch out using the Classic Label Punch, trim off one end and add using dimensionals
  • Add small Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

Oh how simple and what a fun idea for the hostess set.  If you are looking for ideas for the Occasions Mini, then the Create with Connie and Mary March Mini Edition is for you!

Our mini sessions include the instructions for 14 projects with full step-by-step tutorials:
