This Pun's For You Blog Hop!!

Welcome!!  It's time for our monthly blog hop for Scrap 'N Stamp Canada and it's a good one...PUNS!!! Who doesn't like a good pun??  Sometimes they make your eyes roll but mostly they're good for a laugh!!

For my card today, I used the Birthday Bears Stamp Set from My Favourite Things.  This set is full of the most adorable bear images. And while it isn't a new release, this set is definitely one of my faves from MFT.

I went with a fairly clean and simple look today as I wanted that bear to be the main focus of the card.

I did so some simple ink blending to with Peeled Paint Distress Ink to create the illusion of ground and used the Cloud Stencil (also from MFT) along with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for a very light, cloudy background.

I coloured up all the images with my Copic markers and fussy them out as I don't have the co-ordinating dies.

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the ink blended panel out then layered it on a piece of dark teal cardstock which almost matches the colour of the balloon.

I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloon and a few other areas on the images because I cannot get enough of that stuff!!

To finish off, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the focal panel.  This pun is more cute than funny but does the job just fine!!

Here is the full hop lineup!!  Don't forget to leave each of us some love for your chance at winning a fabulous prize!!!
