so punny

I finally got to ink up the hostess set, Comfort Food, today - don't you love these little puns? I think they are so cute! I made quick little set of 4 to sell in my Etsy shop - no layers, no brads, no stampin' dimensionals... I know, it's weird! I just used one of my scallop rectangle Nestabilities dies to emboss the card front and then stamped the image inside the frame it created. Very simple, but I love the look. Tie a ribbon down the side and you're done! These cards are 3x3, so you really can't put a whole lot on them (or can you? I feel a challenge coming on... lol).

On another note - I have new goodies I just ordered sitting in my mailbox, stranded out there! It's snowing SO hard here and I just can't bring myself to fight the sideways-snow to walk up the street to get them. I considered driving the car up there, but my hubby got stuck in the driveway coming home from work, so it's a tad slippery out there! Yes, it's torture sitting here KNOWING I have new things to ink up and play with, just sitting in the mailbox. Sigh... I'll fish them out soon...

Have a great Friday everyone -

recipe -
stamps: comfort food
ink: memento rich cocoa, copic markers
paper: stampers select white (papertrey ink)
accessories: rose silk ribbon (ellen hutson's store), so saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, rectangle scallop nestabilities (spellbinders)


  1. Love your idea for these cards Karen - sometimes the simplest of designs is really eye-catching as these cards are. Great job and you've inspired me to get out my Nestabilitles and use them more often!

  2. These are great one-layer cards. I love how you used the scallop square nestie. Fun colors too.

  3. These cards are so cute. I love the 3x3 size and I don't think that size requires a lot of layers or stuff.

    That's too bad about your goodies being stranded. We've got the same weather you do here in Greeley. A snow day for my husband and kids today but not for me. It's pretty crazy out there on the roads. Luckily, I don't have to drive too far. Keep safe.

  4. These are adorable!! I love this set and even have it, but it has yet to see ink. I'm sure they will sell quick! I wouldn't want to fight that snow either! Brrr!

  5. These are cute! Your coloring is great!
