Fab Friday 143 – Simon Says Stamp – Plantiful Puns
Welcome back to the Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog! This week we have a sketch challenge. I had a new order from Simon Says Stamp’s Friendly Frolic release that just came yesterday, and so I grabbed Plantiful Puns, a really cute set!
I felt I could do something really cute with one of the potted plants inside that circle. Lookie:
STINKIN’ CUTE! There are no dies for this set…yet (Simon sometimes comes out with dies after they publish a set, so it might happen eventually), so I cut out the images I colored with Copics with my Brother ScanNCut 2.
I remembered I had papers from one of Simon’s card kits from Cartabella called Spring Market, so I used those papers for the background, the black gingham strip, and the little wood sign for the greeting. I also grabbed some cute Cartabella orange gingham washi tape. I also love how this set has little kawaii faces you can add to the pots! I drew a stake for the sign with a Sakura Black Glaze pen.
I added a few lime-green sequins just for a bit of pop. Originally, I had used the wood paper from the Spring Market papers for the background, but it was just too heavy. I love the buoyancy of the leaf paper, and the card really sparkles! The Plantiful Puns set is really fun!
