Puns are tons of fun. As I sat down to play with this week’s sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, I couldn’t resist a quirky and fun double entendre by pairing “you rock” from Crazy About You with…well…rocks. Here’s my super-pun (pun intended) card:
And here’s the CASE(E) This Sketch challenge banner that inspired my creation:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Rule Breaker. Every once in a while, I flip a sketch on its side or turn it completely upside down. That’s usually an acceptable treatment, right? Well, when I flipped this one on it’s side, I failed to pay attention to the requested placement of the sentiment. Oopsies! I guess I’m a big, bad rule breaker – still, my project was inspired by this sketch. In the end, I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I think it pays a nice homage to this CTS challenge.
- Washi Sheets. If you flip quickly through the Occasions Catalog, you might miss one of the new products – Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets. Washi SHEETS? What are you going to do with those? Well, the Basic Gray sheet of grids made for a perfect accent here, don’t you think? I also taped a strip of the same washi sheet over a piece of whisper white card stock and cropped three hearts. I placed the hearts randomly (yet strategically) over the other grid. That way the hearts show but they don’t pull attention away from the most important part of this card – the “you rock” sentiment.
- An All-Natural Color Combination. I just love the combination of Crumb Cake and Basic Gray – such a beautiful combination for an earthy, grounded card. I used these colors (with small pops of Crushed Curry) for a Christmas card last year – see it here. If you like this combination of neutrals, too, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Crazy for You Papers: Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack Inks: Basic Gray Accessories: Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets, Word Bubbles Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Project Life Corner punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
