Pun Card Project..


Back to normal now with Christmas and my trip to London done, I go back to work tomorrow..

I had a fun trip, it was great to spend so much QT with my folks and I got to hand over my pun card project to our friend Polly.

Polly is a big fan of my cards, which is lovely. Last year she made a comment about one of the cards I sent to her and it sparked an idea.

What if I made a pun card from every single pun set I have?! 

Well, 5 months (Aug to Dec) and 48 stamp sets later, I ended up with 55 pun cards and to be honest there are probably about 10-15 more sets I could have used, but I just ran out of time.

I used all the techniques for these cards - stencils, heat embossing, dry embossing, smooshing, watercolouring, gelli plate backgrounds, die-cutting, masking and marker colouring.

It was so much fun to do though and here are the majority of the cards!

Fun right?!

I might consider a similar project later this year - like all birds or something?



  1. Picture me, bowing down! This is extraordinary, Claire! I'm so impressed and not a bit jealous since this is the type of thing I, too, have been longing to do, but time stands in my way. Go you for managing it! I also love that you used different designs and different techniques. They are all fabulous, but naturally my eyes keyed on the one I "wheelie" liked the best!! Happy New Year!! Hugs, Darnell

    1. Thanks Darnell. My advice is DO IT. Pull out all the stamp sets and put them in a box, then make one a week!!

  2. wow, you these are amazing!!! Well done!
