Pun Fun from Heart 2 Heart!

Good Morning!

Today is my day for PUNS!  Both of my design teams chose this week's theme to be PUNS!  I really had a lot of fun with both of the challenges.

Here is my creation:

As you can see, I am really into 3" x 3" mini cards lately.  They are so much fun to make and fun to give!

For my mini cards, I used a stamp set called "Cozy Cat" from Close to My Heart.  I used different paper packs to make these cards:  Claire, Dakota, and Tommy.  I love that the same stamp set can look so different depending on the paper you use with it.  I colored in the kitty with coordinating ink colors:  Outdoor Denim, Sunset, Hollyhock, Blush, Pacifica, Crystal Blue, Barn Red, Whisper, Honey, and Cranberry.

For the sentiments (all of which came from the same stamp set), I cut out a banner using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the banner on page 35, A5, Shift, Accent 1, < % > cut at 3/4".  I also "curved" the sentiment on our acrylix block so that it would fit the banner.  I LOVE that about our stamp sets!

If you would like to see what I am talking about, check out this video that Close to My Heart created and published through My Craft Channel.  It will show you how to "curve" our stamp sets.
