I love Gina K's "Tickle Your Funny Bone" stamps

I have both sets, "Way To Go" and "You Know You're Old When....". Yesterday I completed some cards for a swap at The Stamp Shack. Here is my creation. Well, it's not really my creation as I totally CASED it from here. I was perusing the gallery at SCS and fell in love with the card by Mothermark. I truly hope she is flattered that I used her design.

I used some of my newest cardstock from Papertrey Ink in Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush, then added some SU Chocolate Chip, as well. There was a lot of cutting involved in this card, but well worth the time it took, I think. I did have a difficult time getting the colour of the gums just right. It took two different colours of Copic Markers: V000 - Pale Health and R11 - Pale Cherry Pink. For the teeth, I used E50 - Eggshell. Only movie stars and talk show hosts have really white teeth! Oh, and did you notice that I used Gold Stickles on one of the teeth for some added pizzazz (my new favourite word).

The cards are now on their way to the hostess of the swap and I can't wait to receive my cards back to see what other fabulous cards my fellow-swappers have created.

I want to go play some more now, so see you soon.

I love the color combo. I'm waiting for my order to arrive from PTI so that I can play too - will definitely have to try the chocolate chip with these - so sweet! Hope you're doing well. ~chris

Such a fun card, Barb. Did you know that people now pay for gold teeth just to have a bit of pizzazz. Sometimes they get a few on something called a grill they put over their teeth....crazy things I know from having a teen in the house :)
